A bespoke detached villa built in 2008 to an outstanding specification


Cragsfern occupies one of the finest plots in Kilmacolm, with the villa surrounded by extensive, mainly lawned gardens.

Kilmacolm lies 18 miles to the west of Glasgow and is renowned as one of the most affluent villages in Scotland. The village, lying on the north side of the beautiful Gryffe Valley, is characterised by a wealth of handsome, high calibre detached family homes. With a population of around 4,500, the village has a remarkable history with Roman influence. Kilmacolm takes its name from the dedication of its ancient church to St Columba of Iona. The village caters for all ages and has a broad range of social activities, often centred around the local golf, tennis, squash and bowling clubs. There is a first class primary school and the independent St Columba's School which has a distinguished academic record. Pick-up points are to be found within the village for many of Glasgow's highly reputable private schools which include Glasgow and Kelvinside Academies, The High School of Glasgow, Hutcheson Grammar, St Aloysius and Craigholme School for Girls.

The beautiful countryside surrounding Kilmacolm provides excellent fishing and caters for many other outdoor pursuits, with the Sustrans cycle track providing routes to Greater Glasgow and Central Scotland in general. Glasgow International Airport is around 13 miles from the property and the M8 offers swift commuting links to the commercial centres of Central Scotland. Kilmacolm offers a frequent bus service and rail connections are to be found in Johnstone, approximately 7 miles away.

Glasgow has earned its reputation as one of the UK's leading cities for retail space, offering a range of shopping complexes including Braehead, Buchanan Galleries, Silverburn and the St Enoch Centre, to name but a few. Previously European City of Culture and European City of Architecture and Design, Glasgow, dubbed the 'New York of the North', 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.


Cragsfern is a handsome, detached villa of over 5300 sq ft, set in arguably the premier residential location in Kilmacolm, which blends perfectly into lovely, mature gardens that extend to over an acre. The quality of the workmanship and attention to detail is exceptional.

The property is accessed via private electric gates, and the imposing front entrance of the house and its integral double garage with electrically operated doors are approached via tarmacadam and gravel chip driveway. The garden areas surrounding Cragsfern retain a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs which provide additional privacy with terraces and patios to the side and rear of the property.
