Fortunate to enjoy country views all round, yet almost equidistant to both Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm, is this substantial Five bedroom detached villa, originally dating from (circa) 1800, in grounds extending to approximately one acre. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned and reworked in recent years and now offers versatile, family accommodation, with four public rooms and five bedrooms, formed over three substantial levels with the added benefit of an independent annexe to the lower ground floor. Undoubtedly, one of the main features of the home is the large 'L' shaped lean-to conservatory, which offers all-year-round summer living and provides tremendous views of the surrounding countryside.
This property is as unique as it is beautiful ! The traditional building has been well maintained both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The bespoke interior offers sophisticated living space, with exquisite, restored period detailing including cornicing, fireplaces and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. The property is surrounded by gardens mainly laid to lawn and screened by a wide variety of mature trees and hedging. The gardens provide seasonal colour and benefit from a feature patio area. There is a tarmac driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles, leading to a single car detached garage, with a further brick-built, double car-port. There are further outbuildings to the rear of the garden, which would be perfect for conversion into stabling.
The subjects are entered via a private vestibule, with a half-glazed door leading through to a large welcoming reception hallway, with staircases off to the upper landing and the lower level. A handy cloakroom/wc and storage cupboard can be found in this zone. The lounge is of palatial proportions, with both high ceilings and ceiling cornicing. There are a range of furniture configurations and the picture windows flood the room with natural light. The wood-burning stove is the key focal point of this room. The separate dining room has ample space for a table and chairs for more formal dining with friends and family. The picture window to the rear aspect offers interesting views of the gardens. This room also has a large storage cupboard off and gun store. A music room is also located on the ground floor and offers versatile accommodation and has a feature (open) fireplace. This room would make a super family room or home office and might suit those requiring live/work arrangements. Double doors open from the hallway into the fantastic and spacious 'L' shaped lean-to conservatory, which is a great room to just relax and chill and offers superb views of the gardens and has a range of uses. French doors open from here into the rear garden - which is a stunning spot to spend a summer’s evening entertaining and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion! The kitchen/diner has been fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units, with a striking work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace and extends into an ingenious breakfast bar. It further benefits from an integrated double oven, hob, extractor hood and space for a washing machine and dishwasher - making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef ! This room offers very interesting views over the gardens to the rear/side aspect and with the feature (gas) stove is certain to become the very ‘heart’ of the home. A utility room is located off the kitchen and has space for an upright fridge/freezer and offers additional storage facilities.
The original staircase leads to first floor level, revealing five substantial bedrooms and a fantastic family bathroom and separate shower-room. The dual-aspect master bedroom is the last word in luxury, with picture windows offering tremendous views into the distance. All of the bedrooms have space for additional freestanding furniture and three have storage facilities. The partly-tiled, three piece bathroom and separate shower-room create the perfect ambience in which to unwind. Access to the loft is gained from the landing and the space that exists in this zone would be ripe for conversion into additional living accommodation (STPP).
Stairs from the hallway lead to the lower ground floor level. This area could easily be used as an independent annexe for an elderly relative or a teenager and currently serves this purpose. Alternatively, it would make a super home office, games room or gymnasium. It consists of a living zone with a feature bay window and log-burning stove. A real benefit of this area is the main door access that can be gained to the front of the property - offering a level of independence and privacy. A partly-tiled bathroom and dressing area are located off the living-zone and completes the accommodation.
The specification includes LPG heating, replacement double glazing and a security alarm system for additional peace of mind
