Handsome Victorian house in outstanding position by historic west coast beach and golf course.
This elegant, sandstone Victorian villa built circa 1888 displays typically generous room sizes and plenty of original features. Machrihanish House is set in a magnificent position with uninterrupted open aspects over the beach to the Atlantic and is surrounded by carefully tended, mainly lawned gardens with a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs which provide seasonal colour. Within the grounds there are numerous outbuildings including stores, gardener's toilet and former coach house / garage.
The accommodation on the ground floor begins with an entrance vestibule leading to a bright reception hallway with cloakroom off and additional WC. There is also an inner hallway leading to a shower room which has a four piece white suite. The drawing room has beautiful open aspects with ornate cornicing and feature fireplace and the formal dining room has window aspects to the front overlooking the gardens and beyond to the Atlantic Ocean. There is a sitting room / study which could be utilised for a variety of purposes, an access hallway leading to the sun room / conservatory which again takes full advantage of the beautiful open aspects to the front of the property. We understand that this part of the house was built in the 1930s. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large open plan kitchen / breakfasting room with a porch leading to the rear garden. There are stairs off the kitchen leading to mid landing level with two former maid's bedrooms. The first floor accommodation comprises four well proportioned double sized bedrooms and a family bathroom.
