Property Details

53a London Road, in Kilmarnock, is a truly impressive lower conversion of a traditional sandstone building with a fabulous, modern extension at the rear. This property is in show home condition and the quality of the fixtures and fittings are evident throughout. The current owners have lovingly, and with great expense, refurbished their home and added the extension to provide the ever popular open plan living space which must be seen to be fully appreciated. Although there are modern additions and touches, the owners have cleverly blended them sympathetically with the original part of the building.

The red sandstone building has a real presence on London Road and with the large sweeping driveway, (which can accommodate up to 8 cars) and mature trees, it has instant kerb appeal. The grand entrance porch has the original tiled floor which is in excellent condition, and the front door itself has had the glazed panel replaced with a specially commissioned and individually designed panel put in its place. One of the original features that has been retained and rarely seen nowadays is the pull bell system which is in full working order.

On entering the property there is a large open hallway, and what is instantly noticeable is the high ceiling height, the decorative cornicing, the original wood panelled doors and the fantastic parquet floor. The hallway stretches from front to back of the house and allows access to all the internal apartments. The front facing rooms are the formal lounge and a bedroom.

The formal lounge is a fabulously large room with ornate cornicing and a large bay window allowing plenty of natural light to flood in. The decor is neutral and there is a quality wood floor. The open fire with tiled surround is a lovely feature focal point to have in this room to keep it warm and cosy in the winter, although there are stylish vertical radiators fitted also. Two built in cupboards are positioned at each end of the wall where the fire is positioned.

Overall there are three bedrooms, all of which are impressively large, spacious, and tastefully decorated in keeping with the rest of the property. Bedroom one has a built-in cupboard and a large built in wardrobe, it overlooks the garden patio area. Bedroom two is a front facing room with a functioning log burner stove fitted which has a stone fire surround. Bedroom three is entered via an inner hall which is set off the main hallway and sits next to a storage cupboard and a bathroom. This bedroom benefits from a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom one is carpeted and bedroom two and three have quality wood flooring.

The bathroom next to bedroom three comprises of a wc, circular sink built into a lovely dark oak stand, and a bath which is boxed in to a tiled frame. The tiles on the bath frame are the tiles that the walls are completed with and complimented with a darker tile on the floor.

Venturing further into the property, down the hall, there is a further storage cupboard before you reach the study/office area. This is an internal room between the hall and the extension. One of the clever design features integrated into this space is a sun tunnel which provides natural daylight into what would otherwise be a dark space. This is yet another touch which shows how thoughtful the refurbishment has been.

After the office, you enter the extension which includes firstly a fully fitted shower room and a utility room. The shower room comprises of a fully tiled shower cubicle, wc and sink built into a handy vanity unit. The walls are half height wet wall panelling. The larger than average utility room has plenty of space to house the majority of required appliances. It has a lovely, traditional oxford sink which is fitted into a quality oak butcher block style worktop. There is a built in storage cupboard and a door for access to the side of the property. Above the utility room there is a floored loft accessed via a Ramsey ladder.

The final door at the end of the hall leads you into the spectacular open plan living space. This multi-functional space is currently being used as a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room/TV area. This is one of the wow factors in this property and is a fabulous space for entertaining or for a family to spend time together. The kitchen has an abundance of unit storage with the kitchen spanning over three walls and an island unit. The soft cream country style units are complimented perfectly with the black speckled worktops. Included in the kitchen are two integrated electric ovens, integrated fridge, gas hob and extractor hood. The island unit provides extra seating and further storage drawers and a wine rack.

The open area currently has a dining space which can easily accommodate a dining table that could seat six or more comfortably, and a TV area with a couch and armchair focused around another log burner stove. The French doors and full length glass panels, mean that that you can appreciate a peaceful view over the beautiful garden. The modern twist on this living space is incorporated with the chrome spotlights, skylights and log burning stove but the soft, natural decor and traditional kitchen style make sure that it is sympathetic to the age and style of the property.

The professionally landscaped garden is simply stunning. Again, it is obvious that it has been lovingly maintained by the current owners. There are several pockets of different areas to the garden including a deck, immediately outside the French doors and a beautiful Indian sandstone patio that runs from the side of the house to half way down the garden which is a great place to enjoy some al fresco dining! The lush green lawn runs between the deck and the shed situated at the bottom of the garden. There are matured shrubs, fruit trees and wall plants which add a range of colour and softness. At the bottom of the garden is the fully lined double sized shed which has power and lights and a fitted workbench - a great man cave! The greenhouse is also included.

To add a bonus, there is also a high quality summer house which has been fitted with power and is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the summer sun. As this garden is south facing, it will benefit from the sun all day long. The garden is fully enclosed with walls and fencing, making it very safe for children and pets, and it is very private. There are lockable gates at each side of the house for access.

In summary, this is a simply breath taking home which has been sympathetically refurbished as well as having an extension added to suit modern day living. The modern features that have been introduced, such as the log burning stoves, touch sensitive light switches, data points, sky hd and phone points to several rooms, to name but a few seem to just blend in beautifully with the traditional features such as the high ceilings, ornate cornicing, panelled doors, and pull bell which stand from the original build.

THIS IS A MUST SEE PROPERTY TO FULLY APPRECIATE THE QUALITY AND DESIGN THAT HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED.
