A stunning apartment within an A Listed Scots Baronial mansion in an idyllic setting.
Dunlop Manor is a magnificent grade A listed Scots Baronial mansion designed by architect David Hamilton in the early 19th century for Sir James Dunlop. It continued to be owned by the Dunlop family until 1932 when it was purchased by East Ayrshire Council. Its architecture has a distinctly Scottish flavour with its dramatic roof line with turrets, cones, pyramids, ogees and splendid tourelles.
Built of blond sandstone under a slate roof, Dunlop Manor was divided in 2016 into luxury apartments which share immaculate communal areas and grounds. The apartment offered for sale occupies the ground floor and has an exclusive private courtyard accessed from the apartment itself or large wrought iron gates outside the property.
3 Dunlop Manor is entered via the grand reception hallway with impressive atrium. Entering the apartment itself, the long, spacious hallway allows access to the rooms off. The accommodation includes a large drawing room with feature fireplace and Velux and regular windows looking onto the private courtyard which let the natural light flood in. The bright open plan L shaped fitted kitchen and dining room has high spec built in appliances and a range of storage options, while four well-proportioned bedrooms all have built in storage. The master bedroom and guest room benefit from en suite shower rooms, while a contemporary family bathroom includes a low level wash hand basin, WC and bath with shower over. All rooms have windows, some of which enjoy dual aspect views of the courtyard and the surrounding countryside.
The courtyard gives this property the fantastic advantage of exclusive low maintenance outdoor space making it the perfect turnkey and leave' property.
Further benefits include gas central heating, double glazed window units, secure entry system, factored building and grounds and desirable semi rural location.

In my opinion this has to be one of the best conversions of a manor house that I've seen. The private courtyard that this apartment has gives you some fantastic outdoor space.Peter Walker
