Original wrought iron gates and sweeping driveway lead to this rarely available magnificent south facing traditional detached Victorian blonde sandstone villa occupying mature and extensive private gardens of approximately 1 acre within the village of Kilmacolm. This stunning home has been remodelled and modernised taking great care to preserve its traditional character and charm while providing the convenience expected for modern day living.
Ashestiel has undergone a sympathetic and extensive modernisation program to provide stylish family accommodation. The original detached villa was previously split into an upper and lower conversion in the 1960’s and the present owner has now restored, reconfigured and returned the villa into one elegant home that offers flexible and spacious accommodation formed over three levels. The interior of the house has been professionally redecorated and internal fittings and finishes sourced to match the character of this period home. There is Cat 5 cabling throughout all the main apartments to allow internet, sound and vision networking. The stunning open plan family kitchen provides the impressive heart of this home with traditional custom built kitchen furniture, granite worktop surfaces and space for a variety of modern appliances.
All bathrooms have been refitted and modernised and are marble lined with custom built carpentry. The property has double glazing to external windows, an alarm system and a modern gas fired central heating system.
An impressive pillared portico provides access into a spacious formal reception hallway with stained glass windows and a fireplace. There are broad stairs leading to the upper floors and a deep under stair storage area below also serving as a small office space. The formal lounge is a magnificent apartment with an ornate fire surround at the focal point of the room and bay window allowing views over the screened and mature front gardens. The sitting room is another spacious formal apartment with a period fire surround and gas fire. The dining room is a beautiful apartment decorated in a traditional style and provides an ideal space for entertaining. The large and impressive kitchen has a range of champagne coloured kitchen cabinets with granite worktop surfaces, a central island and built in modern appliances and is open plan to a casual dining area, ideal for modern living. It has window formations to the rear and twin French doors leading to a large front terrace ideal for outside dining, barbecuing, entertaining or relaxing. The rear hall has an access door to the gardens at the rear and a fully fitted utility room. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large cloakroom/wc with refitted traditionally styled sanitary ware and large storage cupboard.
The broad stair leads to a half landing level with entry to the westerly wing of the property and on to the first floor broad reception hallway. The west wing could provide a self contained suite of rooms and is currently configured as a fifth bedroom used as a home office with separate wc and entry to a sitting room or gym which has a shower and separate sauna area.
The stunning master bedroom suite incorporates a large double size bedroom with front facing bay window formation and entry to a luxury en-suite bathroom with a four piece suite including wash hand basin, bath, wc and separate shower area. There is a walk in fitted dressing room providing perfect storage and hanging space. The second bedroom has a side facing window formation overlooking the gardens with access to a stunning en-suite bathroom. There are two further spacious double size bedrooms and stylish refitted bathroom on this first floor level. The attic floor of the property contains a large games room or sixth bedroom. This has stunning elevated views over the village towards the hills of Clyde Muirsheil Regional Park beyond.
Ashestiel occupies an excellent and prime position within the village of Kilmacolm, convenient and within walking distance to St. Columbas school and the vibrant village centre yet set within private screened gardens that extend to approximately 1 acre.
Wrought iron gates lead to a mono block driveway that extends along the gable and rear of the property with additional gravel driveway along the front of the property. There are two connected Coach House garages and outbuildings providing additional storage space. The terraced gardens are mainly laid as lawn, screened by a variety of mature trees and shrubbery.
