Ladyton Cottage enjoys a peaceful, secluded, rural location that is in easy commuting distance of Glasgow and Ayr. The accommodation, along with a number of outbuildings, is formed around a charming cobbled courtyard and is set in approximately 6 acres of land.
Constructed around 1850 the former steading has substantial sandstone walls and a slate roof. The outbuildings, currently used for storage, offer potential to further extend the accommodation, create a second dwelling or conversion to other usage; for example, stables.
Ladyton Cottage is accessed via a long sweeping driveway. Ample parking and the main entrance are within the enclosed courtyard.
On entering the property there is a porch area, which has plenty of space to store coats, shoes etc, before entering the main hallway that runs the length of the property.
The welcoming lounge has a great cottage feel with a log burning stove and views over the beautiful countryside. Doors lead directly to the garden and to the fabulous dining kitchen.
The dining kitchen is a great size and provides an excellent open plan family dining and entertaining space. Underfloor heating and natural stone floor ensure it is always warm and inviting. The superb bespoke kitchen is a mixture of painted and solid oak with granite worktops. It features an island unit and built in appliances by Neff. The garden can be accessed directly from the kitchen. A set of double doors open into a further public room (that could be used as a more formal dining room, an entertaining space or a second sitting room) and then onward to a large double bedroom and a bathroom. This public room can also be accessed, via a small lobby, from the main hallway.
Going back into the hallway provides access to the rest of the living accommodation. Adjacent to the front door/porch is a cloakroom area with a large built in wardrobe/storage space. Off the cloakroom there is a modern shower room with a large corner shower unit, wc and hand basin. All sanitary ware is white and the décor is neutral.
Bedrooms two and three are next along the hall. Both are double bedrooms with built in wardrobes and have views of the garden and beyond.
At the end of the hall is the master suite comprising a large double bedroom, dressing area and ensuite bathroom. The dressing area has a large built in wardrobe which runs the length of the wall. The ensuite bathroom is modern and tasteful, comprising a bath with overhead shower and glass shower screen, wc and vanity unit with basin. The master bedroom also benefits from overlooking the garden therefore takes full advantage of the views.
Back along the main hallway stairs access the fully floored lined and heated attic. The attic is very large and provides flexibility for a variety of uses. Currently it is used for storage and as an office space.
The outbuildings, that form the rest of the courtyard, are a large fully lined garage and three further areas that are currently used as storage. These former agricultural buildings provide huge potential for conversion into further accommodation, either as an extension to the main accommodation or as a second dwelling (granny flat?). Alternatively, they might be turned to other uses, for example the stabling of horses.
There are further detached outbuildings adjacent to the courtyard complex that were formally a pig sty, stables and large barn.
The approximately 6 acres of land is made up of gardens, a small field and woodland. The main garden is on the south-eastern side of the house and primarily laid to lawn, with established shrubs and flowerbeds and a small greenhouse. Beyond the garden the small field is bounded by a stream and woodland. The remainder of the land is predominately mixed woodland. The expanse of land accompanying this country home could be used in many ways depending on personal needs. The option to have a running farm or equestrian centre is possible.
Parking for several cars is available both within the courtyard and on the gravel area outside.
To fully appreciate the modern comfortable living offered within this beautiful and traditional country home, viewing is highly recommended. Note that to explore the grounds suitable footwear is recommended. Viewing is strictly by appointment only.
