** UNEXPECTEDLY BACK ON THE MARKET ** Oozing with charm, this unique country home is located in an idyllic rural location boasting beautiful far reaching views, mature gardens and ample parking. The property is tucked away along a leafy tree lined private road inside the Gilmilnscroft Country Estate yet is within easy reach of highly regarded schools and commuter links. This property is truly impressive and a must view to fully appreciate its' splendour.
For many years a traditional Ayrshire farmhouse stood at Gilmilnscroft. It is now a far cry from that farmhouse, with its striking design combined with its original features, its dominating position a short distance from the Village of Sorn and its breath-taking views over the rolling Ayrshire countryside. Perhaps the most striking features of Gilmilnscroft Mains are its views, tasteful interior design and use of high quality materials and products. Limestone flagstone flooring through the ground floor hall and kitchen family room. Hand built Tom Howley style kitchen and island. Limestone Fireplaces throughout the property by Chesney's of London. The view from the kitchen/dining room provides a mesmerising, almost surreal, connection with the landscape that dominates this part of the Ayrshire. Work was carried out to turn Gilmilnscroft Mains into the exceptional family home that it is today, with an inspiring design and high standard of finish that reflects the imagination and attention to detail of our clients, and which ensures that future owners will want for nothing by way of comfort and convenience with outstanding family living and bedroom accommodation. Three of the bedrooms have stunning country views, while the others have garden views. The beautifully equipped kitchen/dining room runs the width of the house and is connected to both the hall and Boot/Utility room with fabulous full wall bifold doors which access straight out to the south facing patio for alfresco dinning.
To the south east of the house is an attractive traditional stone barn with its own separate gated entrance from the main driveway which, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, could be converted to create additional (stand-alone) accommodation or stables. The building is currently used as a store.
To the rear of the house is a large tree lined gated gravel driveway with stacks of space for parking beside the house. There are beautifully maintained lawns, mature beech hedges, trees and flower beds, connected by gravel pathways. Immediately to the south of the kitchen/dining room and lounge, connected to it by way of sliding glass doors and French doors respectively, is a large, silver granite patio terrace that makes the most of the views, the surrounding garden and the woodland that gives a stunning backdrop to the house. Lying to the north, south and west of the house are well-stocked gardens containing, shrubs, flowers, large mature Oak and Chestnut trees and a pond. The garden has recently been landscaped and the new lawns are now coming to life during the growing season. The surrounding country side is a haven for a variety of wild life, the River Ayr walk and bridle path provides superb opportunities for picnics, hillwalking, horse trekking fishing and shooting.
Ayrshire, and more notably its countryside, is well known for its rich and varied landscape, lovely beaches and coastal walks, dairy and livestock farming, horse riding, horse racing and golf. The Ayrshire coast is famous worldwide for golf (âThe Golf Coastâ), with championship courses at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, all of which have hosted the Open Championship. Ayr Racecourse has regular race meetings, on the flat and over jumps, and hosts the Scottish Grand National and Ayr Gold Cup. Only a short distance to the north is the popular sailing area of the Firth of Clyde with yachting marinas at Troon and further up the coast at Largs and Inverkip.
