About this property

  • The Old Mill is said to have been one of the mills owned by the monks of Kilwinning Abbey, thought to date back to around 1600. It is built in stone under a slate roof and is formed over three levels. The property offers flexible family accommodation finished to a wonderfully high standard.

    From the driveway, the property is entered through a wooden and glazed door into the reception porch. From here another glazed door leads to the reception hallway, which in turn gives access to all the downstairs rooms. Of particular note is the wonderful dual aspect drawing room/dining room with feature tiled wall, French doors leading out to a decked patio, black American walnut flooring and a window to the rear. A small flight of stairs leads to the modern fitted kitchen with base and wall mounted units, breakfast bar, Belfast sink and integrated appliances. The kitchen includes a door to the side and rear of the property. Leading from the reception hallway is a downstairs bedroom currently being used as a sitting room, and a modern fitted shower room. The laundry room and boiler room complete the downstairs accommodation.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms; the master with en suite shower room, walk in wardrobes and a balcony offering views of the river and fields beyond. There are three further bedrooms - one with en suite shower room. The family bathroom includes a Jacuzzi style bath. A small flight of stairs from the first floor gives access to the fourth bedroom.

    The gardens and grounds of The Old Mill are beautiful and secluded, with ample parking to the side for multiple cars. A large feature decking area around the front of the property offers lovely views over the river, and there are mature trees and shrubs, a grassed drying green, bridge over the burn and patio area.

In my opinion this is a superb refurbishment of an old mill house. No compromise on quality or expense spared.

Local information

  • The Old Mill lies in a pleasant countryside setting about 3 miles from the picturesque Ayrshire town of Kilwinning. The town boasts excellent road links and a railway station with regular services to Glasgow, Ayr and Largs. It is also well served by Prestwick Airport, with routes to many European destinations. Known as the crossroads of Ayrshire, Kilwinning is a historic town and it is widely thought that a religious house existed there as early as the 7th century, and that a church was established by the Irish missionary, St Winnin, after whom the town was named.
  • Kilwinning is located on the banks of the River Garnock, and is neighboured by the coastal towns of Stevenson, Ardrossan and Saltcoats, and Irvine to the south. In the mid 1960s Kilwinning fell within the area designated as Irvine New Town and expanded rapidly. Within the town there are numerous primary schools and one major secondary school and there is also the large North Ayrshire Campus of James Watt College. The town centre offers a pleasing selection of local shops and restaurants, with excellent shopping available in nearby Irvine, including retail parks and supermarkets.
  • The Ayrshire coast is famous for golf, with championship courses at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry. There are excellent sailing prospects on the Firth of Clyde, with yachting marinas at Troon and further up the coast at Largs and Inverkip. Largs is also served by Calmac ferries offering a service to the nearby island of Cumbrae.
