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.

Built in 1990, He­lens­glen is an in­di­vid­ual de­tached prop­erty with a few un­usual fea­tures, in­clud­ing the 30ft long wrapround con­ser­va­tory, over an acre of gar­den grounds and a jacuzzi room.

In­side is a spa­cious lay­out con­fig­ured over two lev­els. The prop­erty boasts five bed­rooms, four of which are up­stairs – all with fit­ted wardrobes and a mas­ter with en suite shower room. He­lens­glen is for sale with CKD Gal­braith’s Ed­in­burgh of­fice at a guide price of £340,000.
