11 Victoria Road is located within the mature part of old Brookfield. Brookfield is a tranquil little hamlet made up of exclusively mid-to-high market private homes in Renfrewshire. The village benefits from a modern, well-equipped village hall which hosts frequent community events and provides bowling green and tennis court facilities. Adjacent is access to a large park and playing field, with a path to a well-connected cycle path (NCN 75). The village is located just off the A761 which connects on to the Gryffe Valley villages of Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm.

The situation, whilst quiet and peaceful, is remarkably convenient. Nearby Johnstone has a now improving range of shops and the nearest supermarket is a Morrisons store at 1 mile away. A Tesco store is in Linwood and the Phoenix shopping centre is about 3 miles to the east.

The Braehead retail village has IKEA, M&S and Sainsbury anchor stores together with an extensive range of well-known high street multiples.

The village of Bridge of Weir is circa 2 miles to the north west where there is a range of local shops and services which easily cater for everyday needs and requirements.

There are primary and secondary schools in the area and independent schooling (St Columba’s), with both junior and senior schools, is at Kilmacolm, some 5.3 miles to the northwest.

Glasgow city (12 miles) is via the A737 and M8 motorways and as with most major cities has a complete range of professional services, higher education, cultural and retail services.

The A737 is the main trunk route to and from Glasgow Airport and the city, as well as south to Prestwick airport and the Ayrshire coastline.

The nearest mainline rail station is 1.6 miles away at Johnstone where there is a regular city and coastal service. Glasgow airport is 4 miles to the east.

Leisure services and facilities are wide and varied. The nearby village of Houston has a well-attended tennis and squash club and there is a David Lloyd health and racquets centre at Renfrew. Inland sailing is available on Castle Semple Loch and the Firth of Clyde offers marine and chandlery services together with scenic coastal sailing.

The district has the Clyde and Muirshiel Country Park, a ranger protected wildlife and outdoor facility with interesting walks, bird sanctuary and a link with the Sustrans cycle path and walkway which connects to many other parts of central Scotland.

As with many parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a golf course and nearby Bridge of Weir is no exception with 2 welcoming and challenging 18-hole parkland courses.
