Drumore House, derived from the Gaelic "Druim Mor" or "Big Ridge" is one of the oldest villas in Campbeltown dating back, it is believed, to 1821. It sits amidst spacious wooded grounds, backing on to Drumore Woodlands and having a southerly aspect all the main rooms are extremely bright and sunny and have an attractive outlook over large parts of the town and farmlands beyond. The importance and character of the VILLA of which the subjects of sale comprise the GROUND FLOOR, is recognised by being listed Category 'B' by the Secretary of State for Scotland.
In walk into condition this substantial property has been beautifully maintained, having been fully modernised whilst retaining all the period charm including the ornate ceilings with intricate cornice work. Extremely spacious throughout the ground floor entrance door leads through to the vestibule which has a mosaic tiled floor and beautifully etched glass door leading into a stunning reception hall, splendid sitting room with open fireplace, luxury dining kitchen with lounge area, formal dining room, beautifully fitted family bathroom with excellent storage space and three bright airy bedrooms, one of which has an attractive en-suite shower room. Central heating and hot water are provided by a Rayburn Range situated within the kitchen.
A sweeping gravelled entrance drive, common to both properties, leads up to the front of the villa and continues round the west side of the villa providing a large parking area and access to a large timber workshop and single garage. The area of ground at the back of the property, which adjoins Drumore Woodlands, has been informally divided to provide an exclusive area to each flat and includes a detached office and steps leading to the summerhouse with sizeable decked area. The whole grounds are complemented by mature trees and established shrubs and bushes. The overall effect is one of complete seclusion and privacy.
