7 Juniper Avenue enjoys one of the best settings amid the popular and now maturing Grange development by Manor Kingdom in Quarriers Village.
The Grange development is a collection of individual and beautifully crafted executive homes which have been carefully positioned in a parkland environment which fringes both the village and open countryside. For the most part, the properties are all different but all carry the same high quality and complementary architectural theme. The homes are nicely interspersed and are set around the centrepiece period property which is a collection of fully refurbished period apartments, sensitively created from handsome red sandstone Victorian villas.
Quarriers Village is located in delightful rolling countryside midway between the villages of Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm. Both villages have local boutique shops and provisions stores for everyday needs and requirements and there are popular village restaurants, welcoming bars and coffee shops.
The villages both have thriving social communities and there are clubs catering for golf, tennis and bowling. Kilmacolm Golf Club offers a challenging 18 hole heath/parkland course designed by the acclaimed course architect James Braid and Bridge of Weir has two fine 18 hole parkland courses from which to choose, Old Ranfurly and Ranfurly Castle.
Both villages have reputable primary schools. Independent schooling (St Columba's) with both junior and senior schools is at Kilmacolm.
The broader area has excellent supermarket options, Morrisons at Johnstone, Asda and Tesco stores at the Phoenix in Linwood.
The Braehead retail village has Sainsbury and M&S anchor stores together with an Ikea superstore. A complete range of professional services, higher education, cultural and retail are all available in Glasgow city some 17 miles to the east.
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 train station is at Johnstone with a frequent service to and from the city.
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 some of western Scotland's most scenic coastal sailing.
Castle Semple lies within 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.
