A really comfortable mix of the old and the new with this 1960s modernist property in Ayr, South Ayrshire, Scotland.
The house was built around 50 years ago for the ‘Provost of Ayr’ and at first glance, doesn’t look to have changed much in the subsequent decades. But that’s definitely not the case.
The distinctive architecture is still very much in the 1960s. A two-storey build with a steel frame, insulated walls and copper cladding. Love the overhanging entrance too, again original to the 1960s design.
But inside the house has been updated. Well, in parts anyway. Thankfully the large living room has been preserved, with its full height windows and wood-clad ceilings. A great place to take in the surrounding rural views.
Beyond that, much of the house looks to have been updated and we would guess, fairly recently too. Obviously we don’t know what the the house looked like pre-renovation, but the end result certainly works well – fairly neutral, but with the odd splash of colour (not least when it comes to the kitchen).
Good amount of living space here too. 3025 sq. ft. in total, kicking off with a hall with wood flooring, not to mention a lift and stairs, plus access to the fully fitted kitchen with floor to ceiling windows.
You can also access the dining room from the kitchen, as well as the garden room with patio doors out onto the garden. Also on this floor are two utility rooms, a cloakroom and a double bedroom with ensuite.
You will find five bedrooms on the first floor, two with en-suite. That main sitting room is here too, offering wiring for home cinema, beech hard wood flooring and full height window. There is a butler’s pantry and access to a balcony too.
Head outside and you will find a large carport, a single garage with remote controlled door and inspection pit, as well as a front garden with lawn and decking plus a back garden with lawn, shed and more decking.
It is also in a ‘prime residential area’ too, overlooking the Old Racecourse playing fields and beyond to the Isle of Arran.
If you see this as your next home, the house is up for offers over £585,000.
