***AN AMAZING AWARD-WINNING HISTORICAL CHARACTER PROPERTY*** Rarely does a residential property become available with such significant historical importance. This delightful B Listed 3-bedroom home has an abundance of charm. Please watch Boom's property video for a detailed tour of this fabulous accommodation.
The Original Masons Howff, 24 Main Street, dated 1744, is a Listed building. The date appears on the roof corner stone, though other details suggest a much earlier date. This is the "house at the Croce" (Cross) mentioned in Masons' minute books of 1642, and used as their Lodge, or "Mason's howff", until 1790. Now a charming private dwelling. The property was fully restored and won a Civic Trust Award in 1986.
This is a rare opportunity for an astute buyer to purchase a property with a wealth of history. The warm and welcoming home with neutral dÃ©cor benefits from three bedrooms, a modern fitted kitchen with dining area and a spacious shower room with waterfall shower. The bright airy lounge has a magnificent focal point fireplace with wood burning stove and gas central heating also provides a lovely warmth in every room.
To the rear of the property is an easily maintained landscaped back garden which offers the perfect place to relax and unwind. Free parking facilities are available to the rear and a garden gate provides easy access to the property from the carpark.
A Mercat (Market) Cross can be found directly outside the property. This ancient cross was presumed to be one of the original wooden crosses which adorned the towers of Kilwinning monastery. The cross was the place where market stalls would be arranged, and It was also the spot where state and civic proclamations would be publicly read by the town crier.
This property would not only make a great family home but has business potential to offer excellent serviced accommodation to tourists visiting Kilwinning's ancient monastery and Freemasons Mother Lodge, both of which are only a few minutes' walk away. The property is surrounded by a host of great local amenities. For detailed information on schooling, please use The Property Boom's school catchment and performance tool on our website.
