Scottish home combines classic and contemporary features
A newly available property in the Scottish village of Kilmacolm has been designed using classical architecture infused with modern features, including innovative underfloor heating.
Dubbed ‘Knockbuckle House’, the 5,640-square foot modern home has been extended to cope with the needs of the modern family and the flexibility required for remote working. The property is part of the premier Avenal development, which was devised by Adam Architecture’s Hugh Petter, who is renowned for his classical designs. The elegant property has been constructed to exacting specifications and features an arts and crafts design style.
The combination of character, space and luxury features like the radiant warmth beneath the floors has been used to maximum effect to create a traditional home with an internal design that is thoroughly modern.
From its five bedrooms to its spacious living areas, all parts of the property have been professionally designed and finished. Interiors boast exquisite natural materials, from smoked oak flooring to limestone tiling from Italy. The windows use bespoke double glazing, which works effectively with the underfloor heating and built-for-purpose heat recovery system to make the home incredibly energy efficient.
The house also has a dedicated network, with structured cabling providing control of data and computer systems, audio-visual systems and security.
Knockbuckle House sits within over an acre of landscaped gardens and boasts mature trees, sweeping lawns, beds filled with rhododendrons and a dedicated driveway featuring granite gravel and lit columns. As part of the Avenal development, future residents will also be able to enjoy exclusive access to the three acres of privately owned woodland.
