The property takes its name from the Lady Burn that meanders through the garden’s border, where a family of otters are often spotted along with an array of wildlife. The house is in a private and peaceful location south of Ayr on the west coast of Scotland.
The main house has three reception rooms, nine en-suite bedrooms, kitchen, utility, two pantries, study/children’s play room, and games room, as well as a spa-room with sauna and hot tub. There is also a self-contained two bedroom apartment with enclosed garden and an undeveloped bothy in the grounds which offers potential for a variety of uses.
Ladyburn House has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment programme whilst retaining many of its period features including ornate cornice work and ceiling roses, picture and dado rails and traditional radiators in the reception rooms and stunning hall.
The wonderful and sizeable dining room has a wood-burning stove set in brick with a wooden mantelpiece. The windows with original shutters overlook the garden and surrounding Ayrshire countryside. The drawing room is a particularly appealing room with large bay window complete with window seats, a contrasting exposed stone wall and wood-burning stove, and original features.
In addition to the main house there is a two-bedroom annexe with separate access and private enclosed garden. The former stable block has been converted into a games room and spa which comprises a six-person sauna and seven-seater hot tub. There is also a stone bothy with development potential, subject to planning permission.
Fiona Fulton, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “Ladyburn House has recently been used as a successful holiday let and would thus appeal to buyers keen to continue this as a business. Alternatively, it would make for a wonderful family home, ideal for multigenerational living given the wealth of accommodation on offer as well as the separate annexe. The stone bothy also presents an exciting opportunity for buyers working from home or perhaps develop it into further letting accommodation, subject to consent.
“There is a wrap-around deck and patio area ideal for enjoying some alfresco dining in the warmer months and the garden also boasts a small pond which attracts local wildlife as well as the former tennis court currently being used as a croquet lawn.”
