About this property

  • Corraith House is a substantial property built of stone under a slate roof with construction dating back to the early 1900s. It extends to approximately 4916 sq ft of well organised living accommodation over two floors designed to take advantage of the views over the beautiful Ayrshire countryside. The surrounding gardens extend to approximately 3 acres and include an impressive walled garden and separate bothy (outhouse). The house is in need of upgrading and offers an excellent refurbishment opportunity for the next owner. The main body of the property is a traditional detached long house that was extended a number of years ago. The ground floor accommodation includes a reception hallway with beautiful oak flooring, elegant drawing room with fireplace and French doors leading out to the paved terrace, formal dining room and a sitting room. The kitchen has plenty of space for dining and has double doors leading through to a useful study/home office with access out to the garden. Also with its separate entrance on the ground floor is a self-contained annexe comprising sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room. This apartment could be used for multi-generational or au pair accommodation. It could also be reincorporated into the original house.

    The first floor is home to the principal suite benefiting from a dressing room and en suite bathroom; there are four further bedrooms, a good sized play room and two additional bathrooms.

    Externally the views and grounds are stunning and are comprised mainly of lush green lawns, mature shrubs, hedges and trees. The walled garden is perfectly secluded and offers a superb opportunity for keen gardeners or those looking to create something special.

    The outbuildings of Corraith House include a fantastic Coach House which currently has planning permission for conversion. The Bothy is an excellent outbuilding that could be converted or used as a summerhouse or BBQ hut. Finally, a beautiful dovecot that could be a quirky home office completes the external outbuildings.
