Seven Acres Mill Cottage is a traditional detached property with four bedrooms, generous living areas, and two bathrooms, offering a truly idyllic retreat from the city in the heart of the North Ayrshire countryside, with salmon fishing right on the doorstep, world-class golf courses around 20-30 minutes away by road, and international airports within 30 minutes' drive. Externally, the cottage is accompanied by a sunny porch and an extensive private driveway. The area enjoys a rich history and the property itself is believed to date back to the 1700s, whilst the Lands of Sevenacres, known locally as Snacres, were originally part of the holdings of Kilwinning Abbey.
The front door is positioned behind the driveway and approached via a decked terrace, and a spacious entrance hall welcomes you inside, offering ample room for a seated dining area and additional furniture, if desired. The hall also incorporates built-in storage and flows openly into a living room, through a charming archway. The living room is neutrally decorated, fitted with warmly-toned American Maple flooring, and illuminated by dual-aspect windows. Perfect for everyday life and entertaining alike, the living room is conveniently connected to the kitchen, where you will find another area for seated dining, set next to a beautiful exposed stone wall. Attractive cream cabinetry is accompanied by ample workspace and splashback tiling, and an oven, hob, extractor hood, and dishwasher are integrated, whilst provision is made for a number of freestanding appliances. The kitchen also affords access to a sheltered seating area outside (with a triple-lined, shelved walk-in pantry housing a freezer), ideal for alfresco morning coffee and dining during the warmer months! Also located on this floor is one of the four bedrooms on offer: a spacious double which is currently being utilised as a home office, supplemented by an en-suite bathroom with a large storage cupboard. A stylish, contemporary shower room completes the ground floor and comprises a deluxe walk-in shower enclosure, a wall-mounted basin, a WC, and useful display/storage recesses, flanking a characterful stained-glass style window.
On the first floor, the remaining three bedrooms consist of two doubles and a single. All three rooms are accompanied by fantastic built-in storage, and the single is currently being used as another study/office space, further highlighting the home's versatility. The home is kept warm by an oil-fired central heating system (powered by a boiler which is only two years old) and benefits from double-glazed windows, with triple glazing in the kitchen door. The combi boiler and bio septic tank were fitted in April 2019 and are covered by guarantees.
Externally, in addition to the outdoor seating areas and an attached workshop, the property is accompanied by an extensive mono-block driveway, offering private parking for multiple vehicles.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, fridge/freezer, undercounter freezer, and washing machine, and living room bookcase to be included in the sale. The office furniture in the home office/bedroom four, along with a cherry wood unit from the hall, is available by separate negotiation.
The property lies in the heart of the North Ayrshire countryside, less than three miles from the town of Kilwinning. Enjoying the best of both worlds, the property offers an idyllic rural lifestyle with excellent amenities and transport links nearby. The surrounding countryside provides a picturesque backdrop for walking, cycling, and running, whilst Ayrshire is well-known for its outstanding golf courses, many of which are within easy driving distance. Nearby Kilwinning and neighbouring Irvine are home to a wealth of amenities including supermarkets, high-street stores, independent retailers, medical centres, pharmacies, cafés, pubs, restaurants, and takeaways, as well as a number of community centres and various interest groups/classes for all ages and abilities. Nearby Viewfield Manor Holiday Park also offers facilities such as a shop, a swimming pool, a gym, and a sauna, with additional leisure and exercise facilities available in Kilwinning and Irvine. Education from nursery to secondary level is provided locally, with Ayr College and the University of the West of Scotland (Ayr Campus) offering tertiary education. The area is well-connected to the rest of the county and further afield owing to nearby major road links, bus links, and train stations in Kilwinning and Irvine, whilst international airports (Prestwick and Glasgow) are a short drive away.
