Located in the heart of the coastal village of Pirnmill on the west coast of Arran, Tuxedo enjoys spectacular uninterrupted panoramic views across Kilbrannan Sound to the Kintyre peninsula. It is a substantial detached villa constructed around 1930, by Jennie Currie of Pirnmill. Sending funds from abroad, she stipulated that the house should be named after Tuxedo Park in Orange County, New York where she had worked as a governess to a wealthy family. The location benefits from beautiful sunsets and breathtaking starry skies. Tuxedo offers versatile, flexible accommodation over two floors and can be adapted to suit any use. Accommodation comprises on the ground floor, entrance porch and vestibule, central hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen, large utility/ family room, shower room, double bedroom/ study. On the upper floor there is a family bathroom with separate toilet and a further three spacious double bedrooms and one single bedroom, all enjoying the panoramic views.

Tuxedo sits within relatively flat mature gardens. The grounds are mostly laid to lawn and have been beautifully designed and planted with mature shrubs, trees, an aged apple tree and flower beds. To the side there is a shared driveway leading to off-road parking for two or three cars to the rear of the house. To the rear there is a timber shed and space for a greenhouse and vegetable beds.

Tuxedo is a stunning period home which is absolutely bursting with character, charm, and personality, enjoying a shore front position in the heart of Pirnmill. Set just back from the main road, Tuxedo boasts a beautiful garden and outstanding panoramic sea views across the Kilbrannan Sound. The layout within offers plenty of flexibility for a family to enjoy life together. It is adaptable and wonderfully balanced, with large bright rooms.
Entrance is via the generous central sun porch, where a reclaimed timber inner front door leads and stain glass surrounds opens into the broad hallway and gives access to the ample accommodation.
The lounge enjoys the spectacular views to the front with a bay window and features a traditional open fire surrounded by a period mantle and Edinburgh press.
The large dining kitchen is to the rear of the house with glazed panel French doors opening into the formal dining room to the front.
The dining room too enjoys the hallmark decorative period fireplace and Edinburgh press as well as bay window and window seat taking in the spectacular view to the front. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary wall and base units with complementary work top, sink, modern induction hob, electric oven, and grill, under counter dishwasher and island unit and a handy pantry cupboard. A door to the rear of the kitchen leads into a utility/boot room at the rear. This functional separate room provides an abundance of storage and accommodates the fridge/ freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer as well as ample space for a seating area and benefits from two doors out to the rear garden.
To the rear of the lounge, there is a study / additional ground floor bedroom and shower room, offering flexibility to a modern family. This room too enjoys the hallmark decorative period fireplace and built in wardrobe.
The four bedrooms are on the first floor; three double bedrooms and one single bedroom, accessed by the original timber Art Deco staircase, with characteristic stain glass windows on the half landing.
All the bedrooms are substantial and some still have the original fire places and period built in wardrobes. All the bedrooms are bright and airy with large picture windows and well considered tasteful d├ęcor.
A spacious family bathroom with white suite and separate toilet completes the accommodation of this impressive villa.
Tuxedo is currently used for holiday letting and although not being sold as a business, all the fixtures and fittings, furniture and equipment may be available by separate negotiation.
