Property description

Presenting to the market Langdale House, without doubt one of the most unique properties to grace the market in recent years situated within the manicured grounds of the historic Lanfine House and Estate on the outskirts of the villages of Newmilns and Darvel. An individually designed detached villa of some distinction with a high specification of finish and set within approximately 5 acres of garden and grazing grounds with stable block, outbuilding and double garage. Constructed circa 2002 to a unique design this impressive property takes perfect advantage of the plot and provides an expansive layout of accommodation with an extremely private position however neighbouring properties provide a sense of security. The Mansion House at Lanfine Estate was built in the 1700’s to a design by Robert Armour, father in law to the renowned Scottish bard Robert Burns and unlike most of Ayrshire’s remaining Mansions is currently privately owned with the grounds operating as a fully functioning country estate.

Entry to Langdale House is via the main gated entrance from Brown’s Road, Newmilns with remote controlled electronic gates at the front. The long sweeping tree lined driveway leads through the estate grounds and towards Lanfine House with access to Langdale House on the right hand side with its own private driveway leading to the property sitting on an elevated position. Externally the house is striking in nature with a design sympathetic to the surroundings and a useful double garage to the side together with extensive garden grounds/grazing land extending to approximately 5 acres. There are various areas of gardens which have been well tended by the one and only owner including a completely secluded ‘secret garden’ which is fully hedge lined and south facing benefitting from all day long sunshine, a real sun trap in the summer months providing an unrivalled external space in which to entertain guests or simply relax. There is a fully functional stable block with tack room leading directly onto a large grazing field suitable for several horses or other animals. At the southerly boundary there is an extensive woodland area bordering the adjacent fields which provides seclusion to the gardens in addition to offering huge potential for further development such as summer house/log cabin to take advantage of the spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and on towards Arran.

Upon entry you are immediately aware of the sense of space within this unique and well designed bungalow style home. The hallway is both bright and spacious and provides access to the main apartments within the house. These include the main public space, an impressive open plan arrangement extending to some 33 feet in length incorporating the lounge with attractive fireplace and inset wood burner, formal dining area and modern fitted kitchen. A particular feature of this extraordinary living space is the full length Georgian bar doors which run the length of the room allowing an exceptional amount of natural light to flood through. To the rear of the kitchen is a useful utility room with back door in turn leading through an external pathway to the stable block and tack room. Also from the hallway to the opposite end of the house is a WC/cloakroom in addition to a luxurious family bathroom complete with four piece suite incorporating WC, double wash hand basins, shower enclosure and claw foot bath together with contrasting tiling to the floor and walls. There are two spacious bedrooms which complete the accommodation. Additionally there is a large boiler room which houses the state of the art gas central heating system.

Viewing is essential to fully appreciate not only this impressive property but the unique and tranquil position within one of Ayrshires iconic country estates. A true ‘one of a kind’ offering a superb opportunity to the discerning buyer looking for an incomparable country residence within the heart of rural Ayrshire yet a mere 40 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Glasgow City. Transport links within the area are excellent with a regular bus & train service to Glasgow from Kilmarnock (9 miles). The immediate area has popular schooling at both primary and secondary levels with Private schooling also available at Wellington in Ayr and Belmont, Newton Mearns. Kilmarnock has a wider range of amenities including restaurants, theatre, hospital, cinema and various sports facilities.
