A sweeping, tree-lined driveway sets a grand stage for Kennoch House. Dating back to 1823, this former manse is steeped in history being adjacent to St Quivox Church which was restored by Lord Cathcart of Auchincruive in 1595.

Set in 5 acres of spectacular land, you can’t help but be utterly bewitched by the Georgian Country House set amidst the rolling Ayrshire Countryside. This house is a treasure-trove of antiquity; The perfect marriage of period splendour and traditional charm ; all fall under the one spell.

Split over two levels, the manor provides extensive accommodation.

On this level you’ll discover space at every turn; to start,

A formal lounge/drawing which is of palatial proportions with both high ceilings and intricate ceiling cornicing with a feature fire and surround as its focal point. Beyond the Drawing Room there is a small 'snug' which is a great place to relax in and have some 'me time'. The kitchen has been fitted to include a good range of floor and wall mounted units, with striking work surfaces, providing a fashionable and efficient work space. The central island is popular when mums breakfast is on the go! A useful utility room is found next to the kitchen. In addition to the kitchen, there is a 'morning room' which is flooded with natural light and has a real peaceful feel to it. This room is a sheer delight when enjoying a coffee and a read of the Sunday papers. Access to the wine cellar is from this zone. The study, formerly known as the butler's pantry is perfect for those requiring working from home arrangements or can be utilised as a 'homework room' for the kids. The classic dining room has a real 'cosy' feel to it - with the feature fire and marble surround, it’s easy to imagine the fabulous evenings and good company the magnificent space has played host to. Two handy WC's can also be found on this level.

Journey upstairs and you’ll first discover the quintessential period charm of the staircase - before encountering six/seven expansive bedrooms all with delightful country views. One of the rooms has an en-suite to include an envious corner bath - the perfect ambience in which to unwind after a hard day! Bedroom two is complimented with an original 'Adam Fireplace'. The remaining four/five bedrooms are bright and airy with a range of furniture configurations and space for additional free standing furniture if required. Bedroom seven is accessed from bedroom six. Over the years, this room has been transformed into a wide variety of things such as a nursery, a dressing room or a 'teenagers zone' - where they can have additional space for some 'me time'. The first floor has been thoughtfully planned out to accommodate guests and as the added bonus of a shower room and a separate family bathroom.

Outside, generous grounds synonymous with the luxury inside complete this tranquil country estate. Vast manicured lawns and trees frame the house, with a sizeable grazing paddock available for horses. Watching the sunlight glance through the trees, Kennoch House provides more beauty than even a postcard could hold.
