A wonderful opportunity to acquire a much-loved home set amidst picturesque gardens, truly delightful to explore, extending to an expansive circa 1.3 acre. No 1 is a Charming Period Cottage believed to pre-date 1900 (it may be in the region of 200 years old although we cannot confirm this accurately), occupying the end position of Burnside Cottages, a short row of similar style cottage homes set within desirable Sundrum Estate on the outskirts of Ayr.
This delightful Character Home has been occupied by its present owner since the late 1970’s, with the owner having enhanced the energy efficiency of the property by way of insulation/solar panel heating etc whilst the expansive garden has been a much enjoyed labour of love with an emphasis on eco friendly/organic/productivity together with its undoubted attraction as a magical environment for children to explore & play hide n’ seek with the garden wildlife.
Internal viewing reveals a comfortable home which is rich with character & charm, period features including fireplaces with solid fuel fires, exposed stonework, all complemented by the magical garden views hidden to the rear. The property was extended in the past, unusually it retains two separate staircases which over time reveal their convenience of use as they are situated towards either end and encourage an easier flow between the ground & upper floors.
On the ground floor, the focal point being a substantial conservatory which stretches along the rear of the cottage providing twin areas - living & dining respectively both enjoying wonderful garden views, a formal character lounge is centrally positioned whilst a very spacious dining kitchen is positioned at the gable end with functioning pantry and useful separate utility room, in addition, the bathroom, useful separate shower room/wc & bedroom No 1 which serves as the “downstairs” bedroom. On the upper level, 3 spacious bedrooms with the twin staircases/hallways providing convenient access.
The specification includes oil central heating, solar panels (currently providing additional income), double glazing. The water supply is a private connection to the cottages from Castle Drive mains supply. A private septic tank is within the boundaries of the cottage. EPC – D.
The property enjoys a favoured corner site just off Castle Drive, at a crossroads adjacent to the partly visible Residential Caravan Site. The expansive garden grounds are heavily screened for added privacy, with formal/informal areas, a well established woodland and a small burn running through a lower section of the garden. A detached triple garage block on the corner of the garden boundary provides both private/secure parking & storage with a floored/lined area together with useful utility.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS comments…
“ There is so much I could write with regards to this unique character home, its wonderful expansive gardens and its enthusiastic owner who clearly adores and has adored her home & garden over the years …however, it’s the viewing of this magical home & garden which replaces the written word.
I found it genuinely magical and I have no doubt that the successful buyer will be over-the-moon when they collect their keys on removal day and open the door for the 1st time …it’s the day that the dream becomes a wonderful reality. ”
