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.
