Woodside Castle is a wonderful Category A Listed baronial country home located within a private estate with up to 63 acres of mixed use land and surrounded by beautiful Ayrshire countryside. The earliest part of the property, mainly the tower portion, was constructed in 1551 and the building has been altered and extended considerably from its initial conception.
The house is entered through an imposing central doorway into a wide entrance hall which has an ornate stone fireplace, stone pillars and a staircase with iron balustrade directly ahead leading upstairs. Leading from the hall is a magnificent drawing room with detailed cornicing, ceiling rose and substantial fireplace with multi fuel stove. The formal dining room also has an impressive fireplace and along with the sitting room has views out onto the garden.
The large well-appointed kitchen is superb and offers plenty of space for dining and entertaining. It offers a range of built in storage options along with wooden worktops and integrated appliances. Features of note are the exposed ceiling joists and the original stone fireplace. Tandem French doors open out into the conservatory which is surrounded by lawns and mature trees. A utility room and WC complete the ground floor accommodation.
The staircase in the entrance hall rises to a beautiful bright landing with a further staircase leading to the second floor, allowing access to five bedrooms including the principal suite which incorporates a spacious en suite bathroom and separate dressing room. There are three further bath and shower rooms on this floor and all in close proximity to the bedrooms.
Upstairs the second floor has a further four bedrooms and a shower room with a spiral staircase leading to the final two bedrooms complete with beautiful turret alcoves with windows. In all there are eleven bedrooms.
Downstairs the basement level offers a fantastic area for socialising and entertaining complete with games room, family room with bar area, home office, kitchen, wine cellar, cold store and guest bedroom with en suite. Not to mention the authentic dungeon.
The gardens and grounds of Woodside Castle comprise some 63 acres and are enchanting. To the front of the house there are sweeping lawns and a summerhouse with mature trees and herbaceous borders; to the north there is extensive woodland with a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees providing year round greenery and texture. To the east of the property is a modern two car garage with potential to be converted or developed.
Woodside Castle enjoys a beautiful setting within its own 63 acre wooded estate just outside the traditional Ayrshire town of Beith, and is a short drive to Glasgow city centre and airport.
Beith is a historic town which originally relied on the textile trade as its main industry. Nowadays it is a popular base for commuters, enjoying easy access to Glasgow Airport, the M8 and Glasgow city centre. Local amenities include banks, supermarkets, a medical surgery and solicitors. A full range of high street shops and stores are available in Glasgow, Paisley and Ayr.
Close by there are a number of private and state schools and the surrounding area offers opportunities for field sports including shooting, as well as fishing, golf and sailing on the Firth of Clyde. There are yachting marinas at Largs, Inverkip and Troon, all within easy reach.
Glasgow Airport (12 miles) provides a wide range of domestic, European and international flights and Prestwick Airport (21.5 miles) has services to many European destinations.
