THE East Ayrshire town of Kilmarnock benefits from excellent local facilities but is also popular for its close proximity to the M77 for an easy commute to the centre of Glasgow - and in the opposite direction, to the Ayrshire coast.
One of the town’s standout properties is a C-listed period villa on London Road with an unusual and somewhat extravagant side extension given the simplicity of the remaining façade. Internally is a mix of old and new, still retaining some fine original features.
Off the reception hall is a sitting room with two bay windows, dining room leading into a modern fitted kitchen with rangestyle cooker and adjacent utility, cloakroom, 22ft lounge and double bedroom.
Upstairs there is a master bedroom with en suite shower room, main bathroom and five further bedrooms.
The fully enclosed rear garden is a delight and includes a patio, summerhouse with barbecue area and large outhouse. Offers over £375,000 are invited by Slater Hogg & Howison’s Kilmarnock office. CLOVENFORDS, near Galashiels in the Scottish Borders, is an ideal lifestyle location for those seeking outdoor leisure opportunities while still enjoying an easy commute by road or rail to Edinburgh.
