£1million Georgian house with fantastic facilities near Ayr


OUR final property of the week is a breathtaking Georgian country house in Ayr with five charming courtyard cottages, an indoor swimming pool and an all-weather tennis court – all set in approximately seven acres of land.

The property enjoys an enviable, elevated position with open views over rolling farmland to the Firth of Clyde and the Arran mountains of the Jura beyond.

The location is perfectly placed for easy access via the A77/M77 north of Glasgow and south of Troon and Ayr, while Kilmarnock is approximately five miles away and offers a number of supermarkets and department stores.

‘House of Craigie’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful Georgian country house and five courtyard cottages surrounded by exquisite gardens and generous pasture paddock. The current owners have meticulously maintained and modernized the main house and created the five charming cottages from the original outbuildings adjacent to the main house.

The property was owned by the Duke of Portland, Sir James Finlay Muir of Braco Castle, Perthshire and in the late 20th century Lady Sarah Collins of the publishing family.

The main house offers large and flexible accommodation over three levels with notable features and benefits including the indoor swimming pool, bespoke kitchen with Aga, open fires in the lounge and formal dining room and Jet Master open fires in the games room and the family room.

In summary, the main house accommodation spans, on the ground floor, a welcoming reception hall with cloakroom and wc, lounge, formal dining room, kitchen, family room, games room, utility room and hall rear giving access to the swimming pool with two toilets and showers. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have a Jack ‘n’ Jill bathroom. On the second floor there are four more bedrooms and two more bathrooms.

Outside there is a gated driveway which approaches the front of the house. The gardens and grounds are approximately 7 acres in total with a pasture paddock of approximately 4.5 acres. The gardens are a credit to the current owners with flowing lawns, mature trees and well-stocked shrub borders. At the western edge of the grounds is an all-weather tennis court in excellent condition. The five lodgings have an independent entrance and parking.

Should the potential buyer wish to expand further there is also planning permission in place for an additional terrace of 3 two bedroom cottages at the end of the courtyard which could provide further accommodation
