Gryffe Road is arguably the premier address in Kilmacolm, which in turn is one of the most desirable commuter villages in the vicinity of Glasgow due to high quality schooling and easy access to the city. All in Slioch becomes a truly stunning example of the arts and crafts era and a highly desirable family home.Cameron Ewer
