With the First Minister introducing new rules, we'll be all spending a bit more time outside seeing our loved ones in the coming weeks.

If you are fortunate enough to become the owner of this stunning five-bedroom house in Kilmacolm, your backdrop for a coffee and catch-up will mean nobody will ever want to leave.

Set within extensive mature woodland gardens with a stunning southeast-facing patio for al fresco dining, this home - known as 'Ladymuir' - is a real showstopper.

A real stand-out feature is the delightul pond with an ornamental timber bridge that looks straight out of a storybook.

The home was built by renowned local architect Austen Laird in the distinctive Arts and Crafts style and perfectly blends traditional country cottage charm with impressive, elegant proportions.

This desirable proposition boasts unrivalled reception space, inspiring interior design and exquisite period features.

Greenock Telegraph:
A sweeping gravelled drive flanked by tranquil woodland gardens provides a magnificent first impression and access to this exceptional, period home.

Imposing double storm doors open into an entrance porch with an original stained-glass door. This leads into a wide reception hall with original timber doors featuring stained-glass windows and plaques.

The ground floor is characterised by traditional leaded pane windows and locally sourced timber flooring. To the right of the hall, extended by a southwest-facing bay window, a handsome, triple-aspect drawing room is arranged around an original stone fireplace and incorporates space for a study area, alongside comfortable seated furnishings.

The dining kitchen features walk-in pantry storage and is sympathetically appointed with understated country-style cabinetry, solid timber worktops, a traditional Belfast sink and a traditional Aga set against a rustic tiled backdrop.

A spacious alcove, fitted with banquette seating, provides a charming space for family meals and gatherings, whilst an adjoining utility room offers space for appliances.

Greenock Telegraph:

Accessed from both the main hall and the hall off the dining kitchen, the dining room is perfect for formal entertaining: it displays timber beams, traditional alcoves and classic, sophisticated presentation, all set against a backdrop of delightful garden views.

A relaxing, triple-aspect family room has a wall-mounted Morso log burning stove as its striking centrepiece and extends into the garden via a set of southeast-facing French doors.

Greenock Telegraph:

Framed by a carved timber balustrade, a staircase rises up from the hall to a galleried landing where a windowed alcove, with bespoke monk’s bench seating, creates a cosy reading nook.

Accessed from the landing are four double bedrooms (three with built-in storage) all plushly carpeted and tastefully presented, whilst a versatile room, currently arranged as a study, could alternatively represent a good-sized single bedroom.

Completing the accommodation, a traditionally-styled four-piece shower room neighbours a four-piece family bathroom with excellent built-in storage. 

The home also offers scope, with the appropriate permissions, to extend into the loft or grounds.
