A stunning Ayrshire villa built 140 years ago is currently on the market for over £600,000. 

Ardgowan House, in Stewarton, was built back in 1874 by the nearby Cairns Church and local parishioners for the then Reverend Cairns. 

The property includes five bedrooms, stunning spacious grounds and a large garage on the town's Cutsburn Road. 

The Victorian villa is described as 'rarely available' by the vendors, the Roxburgh Group.

Our tour starts when we enter through the composite French doors into the welcoming entrance hall, with double-glazed windows to either side and ceramic floor tiles.

Then you enter the simply stunning grand entrance hallway, boasting original cornicing as well as decorative low-level wall panelling and a fitted carpet.

A sweeping staircase, also with its original features retained, leads to the first floor - but before that we visit the bright and welcoming formal lounge, with a double glazed bay window to the front and two more to the side bringing maximum natural light into the room.

Here, too, many of the property's original features have been retained, while there's also a built-in storage cupboard with a fitted compact security safe inside, as well as a traditional fireplace and hearth and hardwood flooring.

The dining room could be adapted to suit the new owners' needs but currently features a fireplace and hearth with working stove as well as double-glazed windows to the front and side.

On to the kitchen which features some stunning bespoke kitchen cabinetry, granite worktops and a central island with real wood breakfast bars, as well as an integrated fridge and freezer and a double Belfast sink with inset mixer tap - and the crowning glory, an Aga range.

The ground floor also features a study, with potential for conversion to a fifth bedroom, and a large family bathroom.


Ayrshire Today:
Back we go to the grand hallway and that sweeping staircase mentioned earlier - with a double glazed window on the half-landing bringing plenty of natural light to the upper hallway.

Here there's more low-level wall panelling and  a built-in storage cupboard which provides access to the loft via a ladder installed in the hall cupboard outside the shower room.

The large main bedroom features a double glazed bay window formation to the front and two more to the side, as well as a fitted carpet, while the upper level also features three further bedrooms as well as a shower room and loft - and a nursery/dressing room

Ayrshire Today:

Back on the ground floor is a spacious utility room with loft access hatch, worktop, washing machine and a ceramic sink with mixer tap, as well as a double glazed door giving access to the driveway.

The utility room also boasts its own cloakroom and WC with ceramic floor tiles and extractor, while our last stop in the interior is the integrated workshop-style double garage with lighting and power supply, accessible from the utility room and the driveway.

Ayrshire Today:

Two sets of metal double gates lead from the street on to a chipped driveway to the front of the house, while the garden grounds are fully walled and fenced with mature trees and shrubs, lawned areas with mature planting and a paved patio to the rear - as well as external water taps at both the front and rear of the house.

The property is being marketed by Roxburgh Group for offers over £625,000, and more information can be found on RightMove.
