Offering an idyllic country and coastal lifestyle on the Isle of Arran, this traditional four/five-bedroom villa is an impressive residence that has a peaceful setting in the picturesque village of Kildonan. Just a short walk from the beach, it boasts spectacular sea and countryside views towards Pladda and Aisla Craig. Furthermore, the south-facing property has generous proportions, covering 2,459 square feet with huge potential to be extended further (STTP). In 2023, the home was fully upgraded and modernised, including a brand-new kitchen and shower room, new flooring and radiators.
Inside, a dual-aspect porch provides a warm welcome flowing through a hall to the living room. Here, spacious dimensions create a relaxed and comfortable setting, whilst a south-facing window ensures a light-filled ambience. Fashionable décor with a tasteful accent wall adds the finishing touch to this charming reception space. Openly extending from here is a south-facing sun room that flows out onto a fully-enclosed deck overlooking the sea. The breakfasting kitchen also openly connects to the living area, creating highly sociable accommodation. It has a sophisticated Shaker-inspired design arranged around a central island and fitted with generous cabinet storage, wood-effect worktops, and on-trend splashbacks. It includes an integrated oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and a fitted fridge/freezer. Furthermore, it extends out onto the deck via French doors – perfect for summer entertaining. Completing the ground floor is a brand-new shower room, a separate WC, and a flexible bedroom that could alternatively be used as a family room.
From the hall, a staircase leads up to a study area that subsequently connects to three additional bedrooms. Ensuring total privacy, a separate staircase by the living room leads to the principal bedroom, which features fitted wardrobes and a modern en-suite shower room with a drenching rainfall shower.
In addition to the outdoor deck, the home is enveloped by private gardens that have a low maintenance design. Extensive parking is provided via a driveway and a huge integral garage/workshop, which contains a utility room and a boiler room.
The property has oil-fired central heating and double glazing, and all window blinds are included.
