Outstanding architect-designed home built in a classical style to an exceptional standard.
Kildrummy must be one of the finest modern villas in the west of Scotland and was built in 2011 as part of the Avenel Development. The property was designed by Hugh Petter, a renowned classical architect and advisor to the Duchy of Cornwall. Kildrummy has a roughcast finish with honey blond sandstone under a slate roof with elegant lead work over its bay windows and blends perfectly into its setting of mature landscape gardens with its backdrop of woodland and burn.
The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance vestibule which leads to the magnificent grand reception hallway with oak staircase. The formal drawing room is located at the northwest end of the house and enjoys some of the best views of the grounds which include the Gill Burn and Gryfe Wood. The family room and the dining room also enjoy a similar stunning outlook and both access the gardens through French windows. The substantial Poggenpohl kitchen with dining area off also overlooks the burn and the wood. There is an inner hallway leading to shower room, office, utility room with integral double garage and substantial store room on the upper floor. Flooring in most of the ground floor rooms is laid with high quality engineered oak boards with a dark smoked finish. On the first floor the principal bedroom has its own dressing room and en suite and occupies the entire northwest wing of the house. This bedroom also has magnificent views over the wood and countryside beyond. Four further bedrooms each with en suite facilities complete the first floor accommodation.
A network of structured cabling provides wiring to control lights, audio visual systems, computer and data systems and the property also benefits from underfloor heating throughout.
There is an impressive front entrance via electric gates with granite gravel driveway and low level lit columns. The garden areas surrounding the driveway retain some of the original Avenel trees and they have been enhanced by further landscaping.
The grounds surrounding Kildrummy extend to about 0.70 acre and to the rear are mainly lawned, again with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs with access to the Gill Burn and private views to Gryfe Wood. There are approximately 3 acres of private woodland that are commonly owned by the owners of the Avenel development.
