Laurelbank House – Arguably one of the most noteworthy residence within Maybole. This splendid Traditional Sandstone Detached Edwardian Villa enjoys an enviable elevated position commanding panoramic views across Maybole to the breathtaking countryside/hills beyond. Laurelbank House is set amidst circa 2.5 acres of private grounds with a substantial private driveway sweeping to the impressive front elevation which is surrounded by formal established gardens. In addition the property retains further private ground including a paddock field which is linked to the rear to a detached stable block with stabling for 4 horses and a separate courtyard with an independent private driveway.

This impressive property is believed to have been built for the local doctor, circa 1820’s, with the current home still retaining the immense character/charm of the original house/period with superb decorative/detailed cornicing, moulded/panelled doors, veined marble fireplaces, stained/leaded glass and a rare/intact period conservatory. The property has been owned within the same family since the late 1960’s during which time the owners have been careful to retain the distinctive character whilst introducing a degree of modern specification.

The substantial family proportioned accommodation comprises on ground floor, main entrance through external vestibule onto most appealing reception hall, two fine public rooms with the impressive twin bay windowed formal drawing room and separate bay windowed dining room commanding splendid elevated views to the front, a useful study offers flexibility of use, a superbly proportioned breakfasting/dining kitchen by renowned “Moben” with integrated appliances (boiler room off), a secondary hallway features a cloakroom/wc, utility and work room off.

From the main reception hall an impressive staircase features a striking stained/leaded laylight whilst leading to a split level upper hallway off which are located five bedrooms (most of which enjoy splendid elevated views across the surrounding area), the family bathroom/wc closet and an informal study with staircase leading to the attic level. The main upper hallway features four bedrooms, one of which (Bedroom No 1) is currently being utilised as an informal living room, whilst a walk-through study includes the staircase to the attic area. On the remaining upper hallway area a further bedroom (No 5) is located together with a separate “Art Deco” bathroom and wc closet which both retain the original and distinctive vitrolite wall tiles.

An undoubtedly eyecatching feature is the original conservatory which can be accessed internally or externally, this retaining immense character, being regularly used by the present owners and perhaps offering the opportunity of occasional more formal use. The services include mains gas central heating, water and electricity. Private vehicular parking is available within the grounds and the rear courtyard area whilst a concealed garage is situated to the rear of the property providing secure parking for 2 (or possibly more) cars together with storage.

The current owners have successfully obtained outline planning consent for a separate residential development within the grounds which would occupy approx 1.75 acres, however the essential character and commanding position/views of Laurelbank House would be retained. It is the intention of the owners to sell their property as one entire lot, however they reserve the right to sell Laurelbank House separately from the area of ground which has been granted outline planning consent for residential development. The owners also reserve the right to apply a “future development bonus” clause within any legally binding contract they formally agree. A deposit may be payable by the successful purchaser, terms to be agreed prior to concluding missives.

Viewing is strictly by private appointment only and our Valuer/Manager Graeme Lumsden or Senior Negotiator Paula Haworth are happy to assist with any queries prospective purchasers may have – telephone 01292 283606
