Rural home is crafted with care
This charming house feels a million miles away ... but it is only 13 miles from the city of Glasgow
CRIOCH is a charming architect designed country house on the edge of Uplawmoor village in East Renfrewshire. Built in 1969 in a simple Arts and Crafts style, the house occupies a 12-acre setting that includes beautiful gardens and woodland and over eight acres of grazing paddocks.
Clearly a well-loved family home, Crioch’s interior has some impressive features, such as the solid Iroko wood front door, American oak flooring, an open fire set in marble with a wooden surround and marble hearth in the sitting room, which also has a delightful window seat extending the full length of a triple section window overlooking the gardens.
The house is also larger than it appears on the outside, with an internal area of around 4,500 sq ft. Off the entrance hall is a cloakroom, 22ft sitting room with bi-fold doors to an adjoining study, dining room with access to the patio, 23ft dining kitchen with Aga and access to a wood store and beyond, to the integral double garage.
Upstairs are the main family bathroom and five double bedrooms, master with en-suite bathroom and extensive built-in storage – in fact, four of the five bedrooms have abundant storage, while one could make two rooms and currently includes a sitting area. A secondary stair on the first floor landing provides easy access to the attic, which has a 35ft games room and adjoining store. Located just 13 miles from Glasgow, Crioch is every inch a country house but with the convenience of urban amenities and transport links, including a train station at nearby Neilston.
This is a home that will welcome you like a long lost friend – and the gardens are outstanding. CKD Galbraith’s Ayr office is asking offers over £575,000.
