*Motivated Seller* This is a rare opportunity to purchase a traditional red sandstone villa in Kilmarnock that provides substantial accommodation with the added benefit of many original features being retained. Presented to the market in very good order throughout, the owners have applied a modern twist in a sympathetic way so that the traditional feel isn't lost.
The villa is a four-bedroom semi-detached family home with two public rooms. The accommodation is spread over the ground floor and then a split landing on the first floor leads to two separate areas. There is a very grand and spacious feel to the house as soon as you enter and that continues as you move through the property.
The property is entered via a porch which has the original tiled floor and a panel glazed door allowing light to flow through the interior hall. The downstairs hall allows access to the lounge, dining room, and kitchen as well as the stairs to the upper floor.
The very generously proportioned lounge is a front facing room with a fabulous bay window. There is a beautiful feature fireplace housing a coal effect gas fire, which creates a very welcoming and warm feel to the room. With the high ceilings, original cornicing and high skirting boards, the lounge is quite exquisite.
There is a formal dining room providing a great entertaining space or a great way to have all the family together round the table. The dining room has French doors which lead directly onto the sandstone patio in the rear garden.
The dining kitchen is situated at the rear of the property. It has an abundance of storage with base and wall units. The large breakfast bar provides another seating area to eat or socialise. The units are a cherry wood colour and they are complimented with a black gloss finish worktop. Within the kitchen there is an integrated dishwasher and a range style stainless steel cooker which has a 5-burner gas hob and electric oven. There is an access door to the rear garden from the kitchen.
Going through the back of the kitchen takes you to the large utility room where the current owner houses the rest of the kitchen appliances but it is also large enough to provide plenty more storage space. At the back of the utility room there is a downstairs shower room comprising of a WC, sink and shower cubicle with electric shower.
Going upstairs in the house, there is a half landing with a large skylight above it which has a very impressive effect on the area of the house as it is flooded with natural light. From the half landing the upstairs splits into two sides. One side is home to the main family bathroom which has a WC, sink, bath and separate shower cubicle. There is also a double bedroom which is currently being used as a home office.
On the other side, there are three further bedrooms. The impressive master bedroom which is front facing, has the same feature bay window as the lounge downstairs. There are fabulous fitted mirrored wardrobes four doors wide with a beautiful designed finish on the front. There is another spacious double bedroom and a single bedroom on this side.
The current owner has taken a lot of care and expense to transform the rear garden and the front driveway and approach to the house. There is now a Monobloc driveway providing level parking for up to four cars.
The rear garden is quite stunning and the level of finish and quality is very high. It has been professionally landscaped and designed for minimum maintenance but maximum effect.
At the bottom of the garden there is a double garage which is accessed via car from the lane at the back of the property. The garage has light and electrics and has a remote controlled electric door. From the garage there is a side door with access into the back garden.
Overall, this house is a truly impressive family home which is situated in a sought-after area of Kilmarnock due to its proximity to the town centre and local school. The traditional features like the high skirtings, the cornicing, high ceilings, bay windows and wood internal doors mean that this property is quite rare to be found in this condition as well as being modern in the areas required like the family kitchen.
