CKD Galbraith offer for sale an elegant Ayrshire Victorian mansion in a convenient town setting
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale an elegant Victorian mansion in Ayrshire located in a pleasant situation in the Irvine Valley in the town of Newmilns, East Ayrshire.
Newmilns Town Centre is designated an Outstanding Conservation Area and there are a number of listed buildings including the Newmilns Keep, the town’s oldest building dating from the 1530s. There were 32 factories producing lace in Newmilns and Darvel in the early 1900s, today there is just one. The magnificent Lanfine Estate with tree lined avenues is nearby.
Glenrosa is a beautiful merchant’s house, built in 1885 and undoubtedly one of the area’s finest Victorian properties. The property stands amidst its own walled gardens which extend down to the River Irvine and includes a small paddock of just under half an acre.
The property offers generously proportioned accommodation including a first floor drawing room, formal dining room and original billiard room with a glass domed cupola.
Open fires, ornate cornicing and rich wood panelling create a wonderful atmosphere and more subtle features such as cast iron radiators and original brass handles have been carefully maintained throughout the house.
Despite its many original features Glenrosa is first and foremost a wonderful family home and offers four good sized bedrooms (one of which has an en suite bathroom and located on the ground floor) and two cosy sitting rooms. The kitchen opens to a utility room and in addition there is a laundry room and pantry.
To the rear of the house is a fabulous original conservatory with a mosaic tiled floor and patent-glazed roof with automatic temperature controlled roof vents. Double doors open from the conservatory to a sheltered terrace.
Glenrosa stands proud within its own gardens which reflect the care and attention to detail of the house itself. Well-tended lawns are bounded by a variety of trees and shrubs and over 140 varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas provide a blaze of seasonal colour. A range of traditional outbuildings include a six-car garage, greenhouse, tool shed, potting shed and a wood store.
All in Glenrosa offers practical family accommodation together with a slice of history and is situated within a village environment yet easy reach of Glasgow.
Offers Over £450,000 are being sought.
