A rare and unique opportunity to build your own “Grand Designs” property with an architect designed conversion on the edge of the village of Kilmacolm. The picturesque village of Kilmacolm, voted one of the best places to live in Scotland in a recent survey by The Sunday Times, offers a variety of local stores offering everyday provisions, artisan gift shops, popular village restaurants, and coffee shops. Well respected St Columba’s School is conveniently situated in the village along with Kilmacolm Primary School.
Kilmacolm is a short drive away from Johnstone bypass which links up with the M8 motorway and connects to Glasgow Airport, Paisley, Braehead Shopping Centre and Glasgow City Centre. There is 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 12 miles to the east and offers domestic and international flights.
The village has a thriving social community with golf, tennis, squash and bowling clubs serving the local community. Kilmacolm Golf Club offers a challenging 18-hole course designed by the acclaimed course architect James Braid. The village also has an excellent health and fitness centre at Birkmyre Park.
