Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The main house dating back to 1606 has a cottage feel about it. It was completely rebuilt in 1974 and has had further conversions in 1985 and 1996. The kitchen, dining room (wide timber floor being a feature), hall and main reception room have matching sweet chestnut wood throughout.

The unusual six sided main reception room has an ornate French stone antique fireplace. All the bathrooms have been recently updated and all except one have walk in showers and separate baths.

The house sits in private grounds of about 13 acres hidden in a valley on the edge of Crailoch Burn, a tributary of the famous River Stinchar.

The main house and garden are south facing.
There are two spacious suites across the courtyard which have views of the garden and woodlands. Each suite comprises a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.
The gardens at Cosses are a particular feature and include colourful borders, fine specimen plants and mature trees. The grounds also comprise a large productive kitchen garden and orchard with fruit cage, large fitted storage shed for machinery and tools and a large lean-to greenhouse.

A paddock with access to a small burn is adjacent to open-fronted stables and storage sheds. There are walks through beautiful natural bluebell woodlands and along Crailoch Burn to a most attractive large pond. Adjacent to the pond is a timber boathouse.

Burnside Cottage was built about 10 years ago on a single storey with a large floored loft with pull down ladder access from the hall. The accommodation comprises hall, walk in store cupboard, open plan dining kitchen, sitting room with French doors to the decking, 2 bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom, and a further bathroom.

Cosses Country House is situated within 13 acres of beautiful Scottish countryside, just south of the village of Ballantrae in South Ayrshire. which is approximately one and a half hours travelling time south of Glasgow, within 2 hours of Glasgow airport, and 20 minutes from the Irish ferry terminals.

The area is famous for golf and boasts four championship courses, Royal Troon, Prestwick, Western Gailes and Turnberry. Other local courses include Brunston Castle, Girvan, Creachmore, Stranraer, Dunskey and Glenluce.

South West Scotland is home to some of the most exciting and prolific salmon and sea trout fishing in the UK. Fishing is available on the Rivers Stinchar, Luce, Bladnoch, Cree and Urr. All of these rivers are within an hour of the house. Cosses has its own shooting rights and further shooting can be taken from neighbouring estates.
Prestwick Airport is approximately one hour by car.
