Full descriptionThe Sergeants Mess is a breath-taking luxury detached home, which was formerly a regimental building within the Winston Barracks, Lanark.
This substantial property was originally constructed in the late 1930s as part of the barracks which was home to the Cameronians Regiment between 1941 and 1968. Externally the property is bold and striking with "Old English" architectural features such as sweeping Rosemary tiled roof, tall imposing chimney stacks and bright red, brick facings. Set within approximately three quarters of an acre of ground, the property boasts extensive driveway and garden space, which wrap around the villa and are enclosed within attractive combinations of wall, fence and gates. Within the grounds is a wonderful detached double garage complete with it's own kitchen area and staircase leading to the converted attic space which forms a fully functional office.
The internal conversion of the property has created a highly spacious five bedroom executive home with impressive open plan public areas, individual bedroom suites and a selection of inspirational original features. The stunning specification and charm of The Sergeant's Mess instantly capture one's imagination and bring to mind the property's rich history as a regimental home. Having personally visited the property in it's previous form as an abandoned and derelict building, I have to say that the transformation is nothing short of miraculous. On my first visit, I found The Sergeant's Mess as an empty, un-lit structure complete with a family of resident pigeons, nesting high in the roof space. At that time, I struggled to see the full potential and was perhaps put-off by the lack of heat, windows or proper floor coverings. Nonetheless and testament to their abilities, the present owners have transformed the property into their home as you see it today. Their vision and great efforts to restore and improve this historical villa have culminated in what has to be one of South Lanarkshire's most impressive detached villas.
As noted, the internal specification is quite astonishing. As such the provided photographs and HD video footage only elude to a degree of the property's true quality and character. The rest will only be appreciated through internal viewing. Accommodation on both levels is of exceptional proportions and is complimented by attractive decor, beautiful parquet flooring or fitted carpets, charming open fireplace and two lovely wood-burning stoves. The kitchen is of an attractive cream shaker style with butcher block work-surfaces and granite surrounding the belfast sink. It also benefits from a full array of integrated appliances with range-cooker set beneath a fully formed chimney-style hood with oak trim. Bathrooms are of a contemporary style and have been furbished with stylish tiling from Porcelanosa and sanitary wares from 'Roca'. The accommodation is completed by a recently erected glass house with prism sky-light, which is adjoined to the rear of the property to form a wonderful additional public space which would be fabulous for intimate family parties, being all too handy for the integral wine cellar.
