This house will undoubtedly appeal to those looking for a lovely home in a most enviable location.

A beautiful wooden handrail with chrome spindles and skirting lights make the carpeted staircase a talking point rather than just a means to get to the bedrooms on the upper floor.

The well maintained gardens envelop the house and are fully enclosed ensuring complete safety for children and pets alike. The front garden is bound by a stone wall and is laid mainly to lawn with a chipped stone pathway, mature trees including a lovely palm tree, and shrubs all of which add colour and character. A long driveway leads from the double gates to the rear garden and the stone outhouse which could be converted back into a garage should the new owners wish. The back garden has a chipped stone patio area, which can de directly accessed from both the kitchen and the ground floor bedroom, a large lawned area which is bordered by hedges and a fence at the top. A paved stone pathway directs you round the garden. Access to the outhouse is currently via a single door which opens from the garden.
The glass-fronted decking runs the width of the front of the house and is reached via stairs from the garden and, internally, from both the sitting and dining rooms. Sitting majestically over the garden and with uninterrupted views of the Clyde and the countryside of North Ayrshire it is an ideal way to spend a summer’s evening.
