Beautiful Georgian town house in the rural seaside town of Stranraer
Ardmhor, meaning the big, high place' is an elegant, Georgian townhouse built in 1880 by a local chemist. It stands on an imposing rise within the large walled grounds. The property is well proportioned and includes many of the original features, maintained by the current owner at time of refurbishment 5 years ago, including decorative cornices, ceiling roses, marble fireplaces, presses and the original service bells. The accommodation begins on the ground floor with a tiled entrance vestibule leading through a glazed doorway into the grand reception hallway where the original tile floor continues. All ground floor rooms are accessed from the hall as well as the staircase leading up to the first floor. The drawing room features an original fireplace and the original sash and case windows forming a bay to the front of the property and a second window to the side making it light and airy. Across the hallway is the large dining kitchen with fitted floor and wall units including an integrated dishwasher and modern Belfast style sink. There is a row of the original kitchen cupboards providing plenty of storage space and dual aspect windows to the side and rear of the property. The range cooker is set into an old fireplace with brick surround creating a focal point along with the flagstone floor. To the front of the ground floor is currently a bedroom but with its large bay window to the front and feature fireplace it could easily be used as a formal dining room. To the rear of the house is a utility room with shower room off as well as the large store. Access to the back garden is from a hallway connected to the main hallway and the kitchen.
The first floor accommodation comprises a spacious upper landing providing access to the first floor drawing room (with feature fireplace and dual aspect windows), three well-proportioned bedrooms, a shower room and feature bathroom with free-standing roll top bath, double sinks and shower enclosure. The second floor is home to a further two bedrooms (with coombed ceilings) and dormer windows to the rear of the property.
Ardhmor is accessed via a double stone pillared driveway with ample space for car parking to both the front and side of the property. To the rear of the house is a large gravelled area perfect for catching the evening sun and alfresco dining, with an attractive lawned garden, all bound by the stone walls which demark the property boundaries.
