A MUSEUM-QUALITY house in Renfrewshire designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh remains on the market for £3m - five years after its current owner decided to sell. 

Historians and politicans have previously suggested the category A listed building - called Windyhill and in Kilmacolm - could be bought for the nation. 

The property, located near Bridge of Weir Road in Rowantreehill Road, is made up of seven bedrooms, two bathrooms and four reception rooms.

The detached home is spread across two floors and has a beautiful garden.

Glasgow-born architect Mackintosh designed and built Windyhill - one of only a handful of architectural projects he undertook - for produce broker and merchant William Davidson in 1900.

The Windyhill property has changed hands several times in the last century but current owner David Cairns has been trying to sell the property since May 9, 2014.

The listing on a property website describes Windyhill as "an important and fine example of Rennie Mackintosh's work" which has been "restored by the present owner to near museum quality".
