When I tell you that I absolutely stopped in my tracks when I spotted this Scottish gem, I am not kidding. This charming two-bedroom luxury apartment is set back from Kilmarnock's Dundonald Road, inside the historic 'B' listed Georgian Mansion known as "Mount House." It's not just a home; it's an experience, and I’m here to spill the tea on why it's a must-see!


Built-in 1793 for John Guthrie of Riccarton, a big shot in the mining industry, Mount House is a throwback to an era of elegance. Picture stunning ornate cornices, Grecian-inspired pillars, and all those fancy finishes that'll make your jaw drop. The entrance is at the back, and once you're in, get ready for a journey through history mixed with a dash of modern comfort.


The kitchen is the heart of any home, right? Well, this one's got it all – base and wall units, a dishwasher, electric hob, oven – the whole shebang!

Wander through the lobby, and bam! You're in the sitting room/bedroom, complete with a fireplace that screams, "Curl up with a book here!"

The lounge is where the magic happens. Ornate cornicing, archways, pillars – it's like you've stepped into a movie set.

Prepare to be wowed by the main bedroom - those high ceilings and ornate features continue throughout the room, every intricate detail an homage to the history of the home. The bathroom is a marble mix of classic and cool, with a bath, a shower cubicle with all the bells and whistles. The sleek lines ooze opulence befitting a throne.

But wait, there's more! Seven acres of garden grounds surround this slice of history, and are absolute GARDEN GOALS. Lush lawns and wandering paths make it the ultimate chill spot. Even the entrance to the home is situated in the back, allowing you to enjoy the gardens with every entrance and exit to your home. It's like having your own personal oasis right in town – who wouldn't want that?


Now, let's talk Location, Location, Location! Dundonald Road is where it's at! Kilmarnock town center is a hop, skip, and a jump away and is peak convenience, offering all the shops, eats, treats, and fun stuff you could wish for. Need to zip into Glasgow? The M77 is your new best friend. And if public transport is more your speed, there are rail and bus stations just around the corner.


So, there you have it – Mount House is not just a house; it's a Scottish vibe. Whether you're into the regal charm of Georgian architecture or just want to soak up the serenity of those seven acres, this place has it all. Pack your kilts and get ready to ring in the New Year and sing Auld Lang Syne in your new Scottish stunner of a home.
