A pretty country house created from a former farm steading offering beautifully appointed family accommodation in pleasant country gardens with pond and stream, all amid rolling west Renfrewshire countryside.
Mid Gibblaston is a delightful country house with an emphasis on spacious living. The home features low maintenance and high levels of efficiency but yet retains all the character and charm of a rustic former steading.
The house is constructed of solid stone under a tiled roof and is presented in high quality decorative order. Windows are triple glazed, rooms are flexible in use and include dressed timber finishes and good use of double fireplaces.
A glazed entrance porch leads to a feature reception hall with bow shaped wall, the main sitting room is semi sunken and has a back to back fireplace with the formal dining room. The kitchen is well equipped, recently re-fitted and has patio doors to gardens. A raised galleried snug also has a shared fireplace with the main reception hall and at the rear is a bright conservatory.
The ground floor also features a cloakroom and wc, a utility room, a second family or TV room, study/library area, main bathroom with spa bath and sauna suite.
Two bedrooms complete the ground floor and a spiral staircase leads to an additional bedroom or study/office.
The main staircase leads to a minstrel gallery and to bedrooms 3 & 4. Bedroom 3 (the master) has a full en suite bathroom and dressing room and bedroom 4 has an en suite shower room.
Outbuildings in similar stone and slate include a store, workshop and recently created fitness and conditioning suite.
Mid Gibblaston is set in lovely countryside over which there are fine aspects. The grounds are bounded by dry stone wall, are laid mainly to grass and include a delightful stream and pond sequence which flows through the garden.
The house is approached by a tarmacadam driveway leading to a gravel turning and hard standing area, that leads in turn to the garage. The gardens are laid mainly to grass, with a number of trees, spring bulbs and ornamental beds with thriving alpines amongst rocky outcrops. A loose blonde gravel surfaced driveway with timber gate leads to rear gardens.
There is a small cobbled patio and loose gravel surface pathway flanked by well tended dry stone walls with ornamental bridge over the stream, with pond and waterfall sequence to further natural grass area again with many spring bulbs, dry stone wall and saplings.
The gardens are surrounded on all sides by attractive rolling countryside and farmland over which there are pleasant views.
Mid Gibblaston is located in a wonderful setting, almost equidistant from Kilmacolm & Bridge of Weir. Both villages have shops and services catering for everyday needs and requirements. There are pleasant cafes and country pubs with a warm welcome. The area is well served by schooling, including St Columba's, one of the best known and sought after independent schools in central Scotland.
