Scottish Field advertorial
Laurel Homes is down to the final five apartments at its award winning Dunlop Manor development in Ayrshire. The A listed Baronial Tower House, set in picturesque countryside just outside the village of Dunlop, recently won Best Renovation of the Year in Scotland at the Scottish Home Awards 2016.
Properties on offer include a mix of two bedroom apartments and three bedroom Duplex apartments, from £255,000 to £355,000
Wowing buyers with its high specification, luxury finishing and attention to detail, the development reflects the Scottish baronial splendour and Georgian craftsmanship evident in the original Dunlop Mansion House. A truly stunning refurbishment of the building’s original centrepiece – the atrium – has been sympathetically completed to offer a 50 foot high opulent space with square pyramid glass roof, flooding the building with natural light.
Add to this a mix of apartments which are all individually styled and ready for entry Autumn 2016, and you have some of the most desirable accommodation in a unique setting to be found anywhere in Scotland.
Currently remaining for sale at Dunlop Manor is a ground floor property (apartment 1) with two en-suite bedrooms (£255,000), a second floor two-bedroom property (apartment 9) with master en-suite (£295,000), and two truly impressive duplex apartments set over the second and third floors. The smaller of these (apartment 6) at £270,000, covers circa 1,400 square feet, and generously boasts a stunning open plan lounge/dining/kitchen on one level whilst on the upper level, there is a bedroom/study, a WC, and two further spacious bedrooms, one of which is master en-suite. The larger duplex property (apartment 8) at £355,000 covers circa 1,900 square feet and has no less than three en-suite bedrooms, two of them complete with dressing rooms.
An additional property (apartment 7), a 1,500 square feet three-bedroom duplex with master en-suite bedroom, is still to be released for sale.
Laurel Homes has skillfully worked with the fabric and features of the original grand building to create nine apartments in total, with no two properties exactly the same. Included as standard are luxurious, top of the range Poggenpohl kitchens with built in appliances, Porcelanosa tiling and sanitary ware, quality carpeting and Amtico flooring to the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite areas. The development also offers oak finish ladder effect doors with chrome ironmongery and a decorative period finish to main rooms. Bi–zonal gas central heating is included and each property comes with a 10 year Premier guarantee. Two allocated car parking spaces are provided with each property, with ample visitor spaces also available.
Kathy McFarlane from Laurel Homes said: ‘We are very pleased with how sales have gone so far here at Dunlop Manor, and are confident that the rest of the summer will be very busy indeed. We are now able to offer buyers five highly individual apartments, from just £255,000, which will be ready for entry by September.
‘They offer a superior look and specification in keeping with the overall interior of the building which certainly has what you would call a wow factor.’
Kathy cited the spectacular refurbished atrium, which casts the eye upwards with its glass roof, as a feature to take one’s breath away.
‘From the entrance porch with its original mosaic floor, to the bespoke glass and oak balustrade on the staircase to the pyramid glass roof, every feature in the atrium is designed to impress,’ said Kathy. ‘We are delighted to have recreated a magnificent centrepiece to this House which can now be enjoyed every day by those living here, along with friends and family visiting them.
‘As all of the apartments are unique we would urge prospective buyers to secure the property of their choice without delay. We have had strong interest from market sectors such as retired and semi retired downsizers, moving from large family homes, as well as young professionals attracted by the individuality and character features of the development and the easy commuting links into Glasgow Central train station. Our room sizes are generous with plenty of space for treasured pieces of furniture. The development offers safety and security with visual/video door entry systems and a lift to all floors.’
