CKD Galbraith offers for sale a handsome country house in a sought after location

Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Craigmarloch House, a beautiful country house built around 1840 and located just half a mile from the picturesque village of Kilmacolm in Renfrewshire. The village lies just under 20 miles from Glasgow city centre on the north side of the Gryffe Valley, and is well known for its high-value properties and excellent independent schooling.

The property overlooks its own grounds of about 7½ acres, offering privacy and seclusion as well as excellent grazing for equestrian or agricultural purposes. Much of the original character and charm of the house has been retained, including the wide timber doors and ironmongery, beamed ceiling in the kitchen and stone fireplaces. 

The entrance is approached by shallow stone steps, sheltered by an open porch.

The reception hall is spacious enough to be used as a living or dining room – especially with the log burning stove roaring. 

The formal living room is lovely and has a polished hardwood floor and duel aspect windows. 

The kitchen is also worthy of note. Traditional “butler’s pantry” style units are complemented by granite worktops and a racing green Aga. The utility room is located off the kitchen. A downstairs bedroom and bathroom complete the ground floor accommodation. Three further bedrooms are located on the first floor. 

The master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom and there is a separate shower room. 

A first floor sitting room could easily be adapted to a further bedroom if required.

The gardens of Craigmarloch House are awash with seasonal colour. A level lawn is sheltered and screened by an area of mature woodland and beyond the woodland lies a well fenced paddock of about 5½ acres. The outbuildings are mainly adjoining the house including a large double garage and stabling for two horses.

Offers Over £475,000 are being sought. PDF available on
