Full description

Classical 18th century country house in Ayrshire, exquisite walled & riverside garden. Parkland, policies and farmland. Various estate houses and cottages. Over 1.8 miles of double bank fishing on the River Doon. In all about 192 acres

Skeldon is a delightfully private and beautiful residential estate extending to about 192 acres of designed landscape gardens, parks and woodland policies lying in the embrace of the River Doon. It is a truly magical place.

Skeldon House is a classical, late 18th century, Georgian country house, thought to have been built to plans by the Adam brothers, with later additions thought to be by James Miller including the dome roofed entrance portico and south side conservatory. Its scale and proportions are particularly pleasing, being neither too big nor unmanageable and is by all accounts a lovely family home.

Skeldon is beautifully cared for, making the most of its stunning landscapes. It is approached over the old north drive, through a stone pillared gateway, with the resurfaced road winding through mixed woodland and lined with rhododendrons and laurels. It ends in a gravel sweep in front of the house with a large area of lawn bounded by a ha-ha. The estate is very diverse.

Ayr 7 miles, Glasgow Prestwick Airport 12 miles, Glasgow 40 miles.
It lies in particularly beautiful rolling countryside surrounded by parkland, woodland and embraced by the River Doon. Ayr and Glasgow Prestwick Airport a short distance away.
