The superb red sandstone house is situated in a peaceful, rural setting on the outskirts of the hamlet of Hollybush and enjoys lovely south westerly views over the surrounding countryside and towards the Carrick Hills.
Balgreen Lodge has retained many original period features including marble fireplaces, ornate cornices, Victorian tiles in the vestibule and a beautiful Oregon pine staircase.
Fiona Fulton of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
“Balgreen Lodge is a superb traditional property set in a beautiful rural part of Ayrshire but easily accessible to Ayr and Glasgow.
“The house has retained the quality of the Victorian period and offers impressive accommodation. There is a private garden as well as a good amount of grazing land, offering huge appeal for families as well as purchasers with equestrian or perhaps smallholding interests as additional land, if required, may be purchased by (and subject to) separate negotiation with the sellers.
The spacious accommodation includes: porch, cloakroom, kitchen, utility room, dining room, study, drawing room, five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Of particular note the impressive dining room overlooking the garden has a bay window with wooden shutters, decorative cornicing and ceiling rose, and an open fire set in a marble surround. The bright dining kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and period tiled floor. The study with dual aspect windows is fitted with bespoke shelving and has an open fire set in a brick fireplace, ornate cornicing and ceiling rose. There is one bedroom on the ground floor with dual aspect windows and an open fire.
The magnificent drawing room on the first floor provides lovely views. There are four further spacious bedrooms upstairs, three of which overlook the courtyard whilst the fourth has countryside views.
The house adjoins a Victorian farm steading which has recently been converted to private housing. The rear of the property overlooks the pretty courtyard of Balgreen Steading. The easily maintained private garden to the front is laid to lawn, fringed by mature trees.
Hollybush has a well-regarded local inn and a range of village amenities are available at Dalrymple (about 2.5 miles) including primary school, post office and shops. This part of Ayrshire has several scenic towns and villages set amongst rolling hills and panoramic coastal landscapes.
The county town of Ayr is about 7 miles from Balgreen Lodge, offering a comprehensive range of services including restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and a private co-educational school. Glasgow city centre is about 41 miles.
