Bridge of Weir
Conveniently positioned minutes from transport facilities and local amenities, an attractive detached Victorian villa (constructed around 1870) in a very private and secluded location within the Ranfulry Conservation area. Internally, the property has been comprehensively redesigned and reworked and extended in 2006, and now offers versatile family accommodation with four public rooms and four/five bedrooms, formed over two substantial levels.
‘Kilgraston House’ is as unique as it is beautiful. The traditional building has been carefully maintained, modernised and extended 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 ornate cornicing, fireplaces and skirtings, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. The property is accessed via a private leafy drive, which leads to a parking area to the rear and the front of the house, whilst also giving access to the outbuildings, which incorporate two spacious store rooms and could easily be converted into additional living accommodation or would make a fabulous home office (STPP). The front garden has both a lawned and wooded area, which slopes down to Prieston Road. There is also a further garden area to the side of the house, along with a gardeners potting shed.
The subjects are entered via a large welcoming reception hallway with staircase off to the upper landing and access to all ground floor apartments. A useful under stairs cloakroom can be found off the hallway. The drawing room is of palatial proportions, with both high ceilings and intricate ceiling cornicing. The bay window to the front aspect floods the room with natural light and offers views over the gardens. The feature fireplace is the other key focal point of this room. There is a further formal lounge with views similar to that of the drawing room. This room also has a feature fireplace. A family room is also located on the ground floor and offers versatile accommodation and is sure to be a popular feature with younger members of the family and for ``mum or dad keeping an eye’’, as this room is located within close proximity of the principal reception rooms. The separate dining room has ample space for a dining table and chairs for more formal dining with friends and family. The picture window to the side aspect offers interesting views of the gardens.
The fantastic ‘Burndale’ kitchen/breakfast room has been beautifully fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units, with a striking granite work surface, which provides a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a feature ‘Aga’ and further integrated appliances that include a dishwasher and microwave, making this the ideal kitchen for an aspiring chef. There is also an island work surface with breakfasting bar, double Belfast sinks and space for an upright fridge/freezer. A spacious utility room is located off the kitchen and was also fitted by ‘Burndale’ and plumbed for both a washing machine and tumble dryer. Access to a handy boot/boiler room is gained from here. From the kitchen there is a hallway that leads to the rear of the property (extended section) and also to the home office/bedroom, dark room and contemporary (fully-tiled) bathroom, with a separate walk-in shower and mood lighting.
This zone would be ideal for a teenage or elderly relative requiring a level of independence and privacy and could easily become self-contained if desired (STPP).
The original sweeping staircase leads to first floor level, revealing four substantial bedrooms and a shower room. The master bedroom is the last word in luxury, with a picture window offering tremendous views into the distance. All of the bedrooms have ample space for additional free-standing furniture if required. The shower room creates the perfect ambience in which to unwind. Access to the insulated loft space is gained from the landing.
The specification includes gas central heating, a mixture of original sash and sealed double glazed windows. A comprehensive security alarm system has been installed for additional peace of mind and security.
