SITUATION
Greenhill Development Plot is situated in a private and scenic position in the heart of rural Renfrewshire, approximately ¼ of a mile to the north of the desirable village of Houston, some 2 miles west of Bridge of Weir and 4 miles from Kilmacolm. The village of Houston is convenient to the A737 dual carriageway providing links with Paisley, Glasgow Airport which is around 7 miles from the property, and the M8 providing swift access to Glasgow City.

The village of Houston lies to the south of the site and offers an established nursery and a highly regarded primary and secondary school. The village is served by a Post Office, several quaint pubs and restaurants, village tea room, pharmacy and a number of local shops catering for day to day requirements, as well as a doctor’s and dental surgery. Houston is also home to the well renowned Strathgryffe Tennis, Squash and Fitness Club. Larger supermarkets can be found in nearby Johnstone and Paisley.

Glasgow 16.5 miles to the east has earned its reputation as one of the UK’s leading cities for retail, offering a range of shopping centres and previously being named as European City of Culture and European City of Architecture and Design. Glasgow, is also rich in centres of cultural excellence including the newly refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, the Transport Museum, the Glasgow Science Centre, the Royal Concert Hall, various theatres, the Burrell Collection within Pollok Country Park and many other places of interest.
A regular bus service from Houston connects to Greenock, Port Glasgow, Linwood, Braehead and Glasgow’s Buchanan Street, while nearby Johnstone Railway Station, whose ‘park and ride’ has recently been extended, provides a regular service to Glasgow Central in just 16 minutes. The Erskine Bridge being only 6.5 miles away provides swift access to the north of Glasgow, and Loch Lomond and The Trossachs offer a range of watersports, mountaineering and hillwalking opportunities. The coastal villages of both Inverkip and Largs are within a short distance of Houston and provide popular marinas, with excellent yachting facilities available at Gourock.
