Situated at the bottom of a leafy private lane sits a magnificent B Listed detached family home built around 1910 by renowned Glasgow Architect James Salmon. This exclusive property has an idyllic setting set within 4 acres or thereby of mature garden grounds with both the River Gryffe and Millburn meandering through it.
White rendered under a rosemary tiled roof and extending to circa 4300sq ft or thereby, the spacious internal accommodation has all the features you would expect in a âSalmon' house; many windows, exposed timber beams and fantastic fireplaces.
A welcoming hallway gives a hint of what's to follow with a glazed roof giving ample natural light, a theme that runs throughout this beautiful home. A boiler room and cloakroom with shower room off are immediately either side of the entrance. A morning room facing southeast is to the left of the hallway and straight in front is the lounge and spacious dining room. The lounge is the only room with a âClaygate' fireplace and it also has exposed timber beams. There are double doors that lead directly into the conservatory which has amazing views over the garden grounds. The conservatory itself has double doors on either side to take advantage of access to both patios.
The kitchen is an incredible 32' long and incorporates a sitting area, dining area, island work surface as well as an AGA and ample wall &base units for storage. The large utility, pantry and a home office are all to the rear of the kitchen with access out to the garden from both the utility and the kitchen. A stairwell off the kitchen leads to a double guest bedroom.
From the hallway a staircase leads to the half landing where there is a second home office. Continuing to the first floor there are three double bedrooms (each again featuring fireplaces) and a luxury bathroom with âAmtico' flooring, âJacuzzi' bath, walk in shower, WC and wash hand basin with vanity units. There is once again, unusually for a bathroom, a fireplace to match the others.
Finally on the second floor there is a fabulous family room with vaulted exposed ceiling beams and over looks the beautiful scenery from every window. There once again the fireplace takes pride of place on the east elevation. A fifth bedroom with an en-suite shower room completes the accommodation of this rare to the market family home.
This is a truly spectacular period property in a stunning private setting with mature woodland gardens. Mainly laid to lawn there is also direct access to both the River Gryffe and the Millburn.
The property is entered along a private road beyond Hazemere Road on a tarmacadam driveway to the two single detached garages. To the front of the house there is a stone chipped driveway also providing ample parking. There are various outhouses and storage sheds within the grounds.
Kilmacolm has more examples of the works of Charles Rennie Macintosh than anywhere else outside Glasgow. However, the most extensive and varied contributions to the architectural quality of the village were made by JAMES SALMON, his close contemporary. Salmon was responsible for several large houses here between 1898 and 1910 and commenced Nether Knockbuckle around 1907.
The Salmon concepts include the contemporary fireplaces in all but one of the rooms, horizontal windows (now double glazed) both of which were well before their time.
Nether Knockbuckle is a very special house set magnificent gardens rarely seen in a central location within the village â¦.. an opportunity to own and live in a special piece of Scottish architectural heritage.
