With pretty outlooks to leafy parkland from its elevated position, an extended detached family home in distinctive ‘Arts & Crafts’ style.

Mayeswood is a pretty, ‘Arts & Crafts’ style detached house of white painted harled exterior with contrasting red stone at window mullions and doors. The entire house is under a slated roof and the roofline apexes feature finials and mock Tudor strapping. The front projecting bay window formation has distinctive cast iron decorative Victorian pot guards.

Mayeswood was successfully extended some years ago, the results of which have altered and improved the living space dynamics of the house. The present owners have undertaken an extensive level of upgrading and improvement; many of the walls have been stripped back and replastered, flooring replaced with reclaimed and restored hardwood boards, kitchen and bathroom ware replaced and teamed with deluxe range fired earth ceramics, re-wiring and ‘Jim Lawrence’ light switches, and all completed with a tasteful decoration and soft furnishings programme. The same high standards are once again reflected in professionally maintained and landscaped gardens.

Situation
Mayeswood enjoys a very pleasant village edge, yet highly convenient location in Kilmacolm. The house is set in mature landscaped gardens on the single sided Park Road and has pleasant outlooks to leafy parkland which is the lower part of Birkmyre Park adjacent.

The centre of Kilmacolm is only about 750 metres away and is a pleasant walk through Birkmyre Park and the mature and well-established residential part of the village.

In recent years, Kilmacolm village centre, has been redeveloped. It has been hard and soft landscaped, is very pretty with seats, steps and summer flowers making for a pleasant meeting and sitting point. There are local stores offering everyday provisions, popular village restaurants, gift/home stores and coffee shops. The community centre and library are now at the pleasant pedestrianised heart of the village, and it features visits during the year of a popular farmers market.

The village has a thriving social community with clubs catering for golf, tennis and bowling. Kilmacolm Golf Club is situated at the upper side of the village and offers a challenging 18-hole heath/parkland course designed by the acclaimed course architect James Braid. The village also has an excellent health and fitness centre at Birkmyre Park.

Surrounding countryside is some of the most attractive in West Renfrewshire and for the outdoor enthusiast this is fine walking country. The Sustrans cycle track leads to many other parts of central Scotland.

Knapps Loch, at the south side of the village, is famed for its brown trout angling. The River Gryffe has runs of salmon at the back end, both require fishing permits. There are some small low ground shoots run locally as well as rough shooting, both of which can be arranged with local land/estate owners.

Castle Semple Loch offers inland sailing, and the Firth of Clyde has excellent chandlery and marina services at Inverkip, Largs and Ardrossan as well as some of the UK’s most scenic and enjoyable coastal sailing.

Kilmacolm has an excellent local primary school and the independent St Columba’s (within easy walking distance), with its enviable record of academic achievement, richly deserves its sought-after label. In addition, Glasgow has several excellent independent schools.

The Braehead and Silverburn retail villages are around 13 miles and 15 miles respectively to the east and southeast and there one can find a tremendous range of high street multiples together with M&S and Sainsbury anchor stores. Braehead also has an IKEA furniture store.

Glasgow at 17 miles has all the cultural, higher educational and leisure services associated with a major international centre.

The village has a regular bus service to Glasgow and there are main line rail links at Langbank (4.5 miles) and Johnstone (7 miles). Glasgow Airport is only 10 miles to the east and offers domestic and international flights.

The A761 leads to the A737 and subsequently to the M8 motorway corridor which provides fast access to central Scotland and beyond.
