Full description

Dating from approximately the early 18th century, Abbothill enjoys complete privacy and a breath-taking elevated position overlooking rich Ayrshire countryside.

Set in delightful mature grounds of nearly five acres complete with an all-weather tennis court, this wonderful traditional farmhouse is formed around a sheltered courtyard that includes a large play barn, games room, two bedroom bothy, garages and separate office.

Located two miles to the South East of Ayr town centre this is the quintessential country house and one in which the present owners have lived for the last 25 years. The original farmhouse was successfully extended to create a substantial family home of approximately 2500 sq. ft.

The approach to Abbothill is along a charming single track road that has been recently resurfaced. The house forms part of a rectangular courtyard which has a gravel driveway that provides ample standing for multiple vehicles.

The main house has a grand reception hall with three principal reception rooms and upstairs four bedrooms and family bathroom, in addition to a super-sized master bedroom complete with modern en-suite bathroom and dressing room. The traditional kitchen has a working Aga and island unit with an open plan dining arrangement and French doors to the front garden. To the rear there is a useful rear hall complete with toilet and utility room.

The outbuildings, which make the other three sides of the courtyard, comprise a large play barn with excellent potential for development, subject to planning consent. A block of 3 former looseboxes. A wood panelled games room. Separate two bedroom self-contained bothy with its own kitchen, shower and WC, with a separate home office adjacent. There is a large log store at the far end of the bothy and a separate double garage at the entrance to the courtyard.

The grounds are mature and extensive, including 2 acres of woodland. Sheltered to the front by a magnificent old stone wall, they comprise sweeping lawns and mature borders, stone patios and pathways plus a superb collection of mature shrubs and trees. On the far side of the house is an all-weather tennis court.
