Aspire to Ayrshire living at Ladykirk Place
An outstanding collection of family homes.
West Scotland is proud to be creating Ladykirk Place - a new community of stylish homes in the South Ayrshire village of Monkton. Drawing on decades of expertise in house building and home making, we are building an immediately appealing estate featuring some of our most popular styles ranging up to 5 beds in size on three hectares of greenfield land surrounded by open countryside. Arranged along a looping residential avenue, this collection of 58 smart and sophisticated home styles create a village-style green, giving residents a place to come together and enjoy their rarefied surroundings.
Lifestyle, Out and about
South Ayrshire is a county rich in residential appeal, but even by these high standards, Monkton enjoys an enviable setting. This village combines the best elements of rural charm and urban convenience, retaining a sense of community and a distinct character, yet providing its residents with a primary school and hotels. The village's main street is home to a disparate blend of established cottages and villas, and the enduring demand for homes here is reflected in the sold-out status of the village's previous new housing developments.
In truth, Monkton doesn't need to be a self-contained community, since Prestwick is quite literally on the doorstep. Amenities here include various bars and restaurants and a surprisingly lengthy high street, with a variety of boutique stores and household-name retailers including a choice of banks and chemists. Venture a little further south along Prestwick's eponymous main street, and you reach Ayr - a considerably bigger conurbation with a bustling town centre, a university campus and plentiful leisure attractions.
Residents at Ladykirk Place will be able to enjoy the best of town and country, all in one sought-after setting.
This development occupies three hectares of greenfield land, and it is surrounded by open countryside, ensuring that almost every property has open outlooks to either the front or rear.
The homes themselves stand along a winding central avenue, with 58 stylish and sophisticated villas overlooking a communal green, where residents can come together and socialise, walk their dogs or simply enjoy their refined surroundings.
Places of interest
People visit South Ayrshire for numerous reasons, and local residents are able to take full advantage of the region's eclectic roster of attractions. As the county's largest population centre, Ayr boasts a renowned racecourse, while Culzean Castle and Country Park is a flagship National Trust location, and Heads of Ayr Farm Park at Doonfoot is an enjoyable place to spend clement afternoons.
Ayr is perhaps most famous as the home of the Bard, and the interactive Burns Museum is set within beautifully landscaped gardens that reach the banks of the river Doon - one of several tributaries that extend into the Firth of Clyde. Sandy beaches are never far away in this part of the world, and the same is true of acclaimed golf courses, with Troon renowned internationally for its connections with the Open championship
Other notable places of interest to the north of Monkton include Largs, with its bustling promenade and the Vikingar! museum. Ardrossan has ferry links to the beautiful island of Arran, and Irvine is home to various museums and leisure attractions. Kilwinning's 400-hectare country park at Eglinton contains woodland walks, a ruined castle and one of the region's largest play areas for children.

Thanks to its position on the northern edge of Prestwick, the village of Monkton has a centrality and convenience that makes it the envy of many other towns. A brace of dual carriageways (the A77 and A78) makes it easy to travel freely throughout west central Scotland, and Glasgow is only around 30 miles away. The A77 becomes a motorway north of Kilmarnock, from which point it leads directly into Glasgow and onto the M8 towards Edinburgh and the north. The Glasgow Southern Orbital dual carriageway also channels traffic onto the M74, which extends south to Carlisle and the M6.
Mention of Prestwick naturally invokes connotations of air travel, and Prestwick International Airport is within walking distance of Monkton, offering direct flights to destinations all over Europe. The airport's train station also connects directly into Glasgow Central, with some journeys taking just 40 minutes to reach the centre of Scotland's largest city.
It's even possible to reach Ireland from nearby Troon, with direct ferry services to Larne. The conclusion is obvious - Ladykirk Place provides an ideal base of operations, whether you're travelling by road, rail, sea or air.
