THE OLD MANSE
Rarely available this stunning, 19th century category ‘B’ Listed TOWNHOUSE has been exceptionally well maintained and sympathetically modernised throughout the years whilst having retained many of its fine period features including ornate cornice work and handsome open fireplaces.
As one would expect in a property of this size all rooms are generously proportioned and comprise entrance vestibule with double storm doors leading through to a splendid reception hall giving access to the Morning Room and Sitting Room, both of which have exquisite open fireplaces, attractive bright Dining room overlooking the garden, breakfasting kitchen with traditional Aga oven. Other rooms on the ground floor include a utility room, cloakroom and glazed rear porch.
A most striking staircase leads to the upper hall with access to all five bright airy bedrooms, the master bedroom having an adjoining dressing room, and the family bathroom which has a free standing bath as well as a large shower cubicle. The basement of the house is accessed from an external door within the rear grounds and includes a workshop and store with inspection access to the remainder of the basement. The property benefits from Gas central heating and all windows have the original working shutters.
One of the many desirable features of this property is that it has secluded, peaceful garden grounds to the rear of the building which are bounded by high stone walling and include a large area of lawn with established borders. The child’s playhouse will remain. There is also a designated parking area outwith the perimeter of the building.
The town centre has good shopping facilities, Grammar School, 2 primary schools, health centre and hospital, cinema, two large supermarkets, library and large leisure complex which includes a state of the art gym, 25m swimming pool as well as conference facilities all of which is within easy walking distance.
For the golf enthusiast Machrihanish Golf Club and Machrihanish Dunes Golf courses are only a few minutes minute drive away as is the Machrihanish Airport with daily flights to and from Glasgow with an inflight time of approximately 25 minutes.
