Bishopton is about two miles from the Erskine Bridge and the M8 motorway network and some 6 miles from Glasgow Airport which offers an increasingly wide range of flights to domestic and foreign destinations. The Braehead shopping complex, retail park and leisure complex is within 10 miles of the property and the re-generated waterfront at Greenock also offers a wealth of retail outlets.

Bishopton has local shopping, a respected primary school and a railway station. Glasgow offers a wide selection of private schools including Glasgow and Kelvinside Academy, The High School of Glasgow, Hutchesons’ Grammar School and St Aloysius. St Columba’s in Kilmacolm and Lomond School in Helensburgh are also readily accessible.

The surrounding area is well endowed with recreational facilities including local golf courses such as Old Ranfurly, Ranfurly Castle, Kilmacolm, Erskine and Gleddoch, and the David Lloyd Tennis Complex at Renfrew. The prestigious Mar Hall Golf and Spa resort is within in close proximity. The Clyde coast is an international tourist destination with many renowned championship golf courses including Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick. There are excellent marinas at Inkerkip and Largs. Just to the north, across the Erskine Bridge is some of Britain’s most spectacular scenery surrounding the Loch Lomond area. The loch is crossed by the Highland Fault Line and the physical characteristics of lowland and highland can be seen within a few miles of each other. Loch Lomond Golf Club boasts international membership and is one of the finest golf courses in Europe.

Description

Eastfield was built in 1925 and has been significantly refurbished over the last few years by the present owners. In its restoration considerable sensitivity and effort have been deployed to combine the house’s original early 20th century features, such as richly coloured timber panelling, ornate cornicing, fireplaces and herringbone parquet flooring to most main ground floor apartments.

The substantial ground floor has a beautiful grand hallway with richly coloured timber panelling, off which is a cloakroom with wash hand basin. The elegant drawing room has a three frame west facing bay window and twin sash and case windows overlooking the gardens to the south. There is a beautiful timber fire surround at the focal point and herringbone parquet flooring. To the front of the property, overlooking the gardens, are a formal dining room with an ornate fireplace and a sitting room with a corner bay window and a timber fire surround. Off the drawing room is the former butler’s pantry. To the rear of the ground floor, there is an inner hallway with hardwood parquet flooring and a side door to the garden. Off this inner hallway is a living room. It has a connecting door to an exceptionally well-proportioned open plan dining sized kitchen with a fine range of modern base and wall mounted units and French doors to the garden. The Kitchen still retains the original Range. Off the kitchen is a utility room with base mounted units. A downstairs toilet completes the downstairs accommodation.

At the mid-landing level are a single bedroom or study, a bathroom with four piece modern suite, a linen cupboard and an additional WC. There are two beautiful, original stained glass windows on the mid landing. Off the first floor landing are five bedrooms one of which is being utilised as a dressing room, and a modern shower room.

The level gardens surrounding Eastfield are mainly lawned with walls and hedges providing privacy. The rear gardens have a landscaped terrace, pathways and a variety of shrubs with. There is a detached single garage with pitched slated roof.
