OUR latest Ayrshire property of the week is an immaculate top floor apartment which extends to approximately 1,500 square feet.

With a luxurious level of finish, the traditional property is part of a well proportioned building of apartments which enjoy an idyllic semi-rural position close to Dunlop.

Dunlop Manor and Country Estate is set in unspoilt rural Ayrshire less than two miles from the picturesque village of Dunlop, which provides a range of excellent local facilities including a primary school, frequent direct rail link to Glasgow, whilst the wider amenities of Kilmarnock to the south are just 14 minutes away.

Dunlop lies on the A735 seven miles north of Kilmarnock and is ideally located for access to the M77 for onward road journeys to Glasgow, Edinburgh and the south. Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which offers flights to both domestic and international destinations is around 25 minutes drive away.

Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including Turnberry and Royal Troon and, with marinas in Troon, Largs, Ardrossan and Inverkip, there are excellent yachting facilities. In addition, the popular racecourse at Ayr, which annually hosts the Scottish Grand National and Scottish Gold Cup is also within easy access.

The property itself, Apartment 9, is a most impressive second floor conversion forming part of Dunlop Manor. The current house was constructed in 1834 for Sir James Dunlop by Glasgow architect James Hamilton.
