SCOTS yearning for a new life by the sea will be in dreamland at the sight of this stunning villa with uninterrupted views of Troon beach – on the market for the first time in 75 years.
The ‘once-in-a-generation’ property at Number 117 – which hit the market this week – sits on the corner of South Beach and Lochend Road in the sought-after Ayrshire coastal town and boasts an enviable sea-view and extensive gardens.
The B-listed property is available on the open market for the first time in more than 75 years and is listed for £750,000 by Corum Property.
Ayrshire native Colin McCrossin, a partner at Corum Property, said: “This is a once in a generation opportunity to acquire one of the finest family homes in the Troon area with stunning uninterrupted sea views.
“The home was built by the builder for his own family, and it’s clear to see how he exacted his own standards throughout – the attention to detail is quite something.
“It’s the first time this property has been available on the open market in over 70 years, and its rich history is reflected all throughout the house.”
The original details of the property have been restored and well maintained by the previous owner, and reflect the domestic Arts and Crafts movement: from the beautiful stained glass panel in the entrance door, to the original bronze relief above the hallway fireplace, and bespoke panelling in several ground floor rooms.
More recent updates include gas central heating with a modern Vaillant boiler and secondary glazing for added efficiency.
The property benefits from a spacious panelled reception hallway with two-piece WC and cloak area off, bay windowed drawing room, formal dining room, bay windowed morning room, fitted dining kitchen with utility room off, Butler’s pantry with original fittings, storeroom and rear hall and larder.
From the reception hallway there is an elegant staircase giving access to a generous landing, four double bedrooms and two three-piece bathrooms. One bedroom even features a balcony overlooking the sea.
Extensive gardens surround the house to both the front and rear. The south westerly facing front garden is laid to two areas of lawn with chipped pathway and well stocked borders with seasonal plants and shrubs.
