Property Description

*closing Date Wednesday 1st May 1pm*

A splendid semi-rural property boasting exceptional outlooks and unrivalled privacy within the grounds of the former Castle Semple Estate.

The Walled Garden was built in the late 1700s/early 1800s and is a Category B listed residence with approximately 4.35 acres of ground comprising walled gardens, paddocks and outbuildings offering excellent potential to extend or develop further subject to any required planning requirements.

We believe the subjects represent a wonderful opportunity to create a magnificent country property within what remains a locally admired location which is ideally placed for easy commute to Glasgow City Centre, the airport and beyond.  

The property comprises a main house, gate house bothy, stone built outbuildings with stables and industrial shed.

The main house offers accommodation over two levels as follows: vestibule, reception hall, WC, dual aspect lounge with conservatory, dining room, utility room, bathroom and dining kitchen. The upper level offers landing area and four bedrooms.

Both the main house and the bothy, which is mainly used as additional storage require full renovation.

The stone-built outbuilding comprises a woodshed, store, two stables, tack room and tool shed with an adjacent multi-purpose industrial shed offering a further 70 sqm.

There are private garden grounds accessed from the conservatory with the paddocks enclosed by the impressive B listed walls and sure to appeal to equestrians with open countryside scenery and quality hacking within Castle Semple.

Surrounding Renfrewshire villages of Lochwinnoch, Howwood, Kilbarchan, Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm all offer a good range of local shops, cafes and welcoming village and country pubs together with a good range of amenities that comfortably cater for every day needs and requirements. Primary schooling is available at Lochwinnoch, Howwood and Kilbarchan with secondary schooling in both the state and private sectors in the district.

A complete range of professional services, higher education, cultural and retail are all available in Glasgow city some 16 miles to the east.

The A737 is the main trunk route to and from Glasgow Airport and the city as well as south to Prestwick Airport and the Ayrshire coastline.

Howwood has a mainline railway station with a frequent service to and from Glasgow city. Glasgow airport is about 7.5 miles to the east and there is a convenient on/off slip to the A737, about 1 mile to the south east, which is the main arterial road route connecting with Ayrshire, the M8 motorway corridor, central Scotland and beyond.

Leisure services and facilities are wide and varied. Bowfield Country Club and Spa is about 1.75 miles to the south and there is a David Lloyd Health and Racquets Centre at Renfrew. The village of Houston is home to Strathgryffe Tennis & Squash Club which with its 4 indoor and 6 outdoor tennis courts makes it one of the best racquet centres in Scotland.

Inland sailing and rowing is available on Castle Semple Loch and the Firth of Clyde has a number of marinas with connected marine and chandlery services and providing quick access to some of the most scenic coastal sailing in Europe.

Castle Semple also lies within the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park, a ranger protected wildlife and outdoor facility with interesting walks, bird sanctuary and a link with the Sustrans cycle path and walkway which connects to many other parts of central Scotland. 

As with many parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and The Walled Garden is no exception. There is an 18 hole course in Lochwinnoch and no less than 2 quality 18 hole courses in Bridge of Weir, and a fine heathland course at Kilmacolm.
