Full description

Kensal Towers is a magnificent C-listed Italianate detached villa, circa 1887 that sits in fabulous mature walled garden grounds and enjoys a prominent position on the corner of Bellevue Crescent and Racecourse Road.

"Bellevue" translates in French as 'beautiful river' and there is no doubt that this charming tree lined crescent is one of Ayr’s foremost residential locations and an outstanding area in which to reside. The location is ideal for families given its proximity to a wide range of Ayr’s amenities and a short walk to the sea front and esplanade.

The subjects present a most impressive facade of blonde sandstone under a pitched slate roof complete with square tower and dramatic sash and case bay window formations. The house is surrounded by mature gardens all enclosed by a high coped boundary wall and has a private drive and parking area to the front plus double garage accessed from Bellevue Crescent.

The accommodation is most impressive extending to around 4500 sq.ft. across four levels. There are five bedrooms and three reception rooms including a superb snooker/games room at basement level. The square tower is currently utilised as a small library and the large fitted kitchen easily has plenty of space for dining.

In addition to the main house there is an extremely useful self-contained cottage located to the rear which comprises an open plan lounge/kitchen area, separate bedroom and bathroom.

In detail the accommodation comprises entrance vestibule, broad reception hall, cloaks/WC, formal bay window lounge, family/sitting room, dining room, snooker/games room, fully fitted dining kitchen, utility, four double bedrooms (2 en-suite), two bathrooms, tower room/library, excellent storage.

Outside the gardens are without doubt a key feature of the property. Bounded and enclosed by mature walling there is a large parking area to the front surrounded by mature trees and borders. The rear garden offers a large lawn with stocked borders, paths and patio. A private driveway from Bellevue Crescent provides access to a double garage.
