TENURE: To be advised
Ellanbank is arguably one of the finest examples of a red sandstone late Victorian Detached Villa to grace the market. Perfectly positioned within Upper Skelmorlie on the scenic North Ayrshire coastline and encompassing breath taking Firth Of Clyde views from an elevated position. A former Church of Scotland Manse and designed by the renowned Glasgow architect John Honeyman, this enormously distinctive and imposing Detached Residence is equally impressive internally as it is from an external perspective. In more recent years Ellanbank has been carefully modernised in a manner sympathetic to the period, with many traditional qualities retained and indeed enhanced such as ceiling plaster work, splendid fire places and superb original timber work.
Tucked away and accessed from a sweeping, gated red -chipped driveway, in more detail viewing reveals: vestibule, magnificent reception hall with stained glass window, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, study/home office, breakfasting kitchen with appliances, ancilliary rooms such as Butlers Pantry, store and cloakroom. There is also a quite magnificent, large conservatory with a pleasant light and airy feel viewing over the rear gardens on the lower level. Upstairs is accessed via a grand sweeping staircase and leads to all five bedrooms, (or four bedrooms and games room/teenagers den), bathroom and shower room. Ellanbank has a modern gas central heating system. Externally, there is a garage ample driveway parking and generous, mature, garden grounds front and rear. Skelmorlie is a small coastal village which offers village amenities and primary schooling. Those seeking independent schooling can find this in Glasgow and Kilmacolm. For the commuter Skelmorlie offers an ideal base to access all major road networks and is in close proximity to both international airports at Glasgow and Prestwick. Train services are also available at close by Wemyss Bay (one of the finest Victorian designed stations in Scotland) and Largs direct to Glasgow Central Station and destinations further afield. The in shore waters of The Firth of Clyde offer fantastic sailing with a number of marinas in the locality including Kip Marina at Inverkip and Largs Yacht Haven to the south.
