School House – Knockdon. A most impressive Cottage Style Conversion within a select courtyard development of the former Knockdon Farm and its outbuildings. Knockdown enjoys a superb elevated rural setting amidst open countryside whilst being only 4 miles (approx) from Alloway, on the edge of Ayr Town.

This charming development was undertaken by Brae Homes with this property, latterly believed to have been the School House, completed circa 2002. The School House is similar in style perhaps to a Detached Cottage however is attached at the far end to another similar style property. The external finish is of most appealing Traditional Red Sandstone with a slate roof, whilst internally the specification is of a high standard reflected in the quality of the kitchen (Alno) and bathroom whilst the choice of most attractive internal doors demonstrates the attention to detail that is often overlooked by developers/builders. This particular property features its own private garden/patio area with a private driveway leading thereto offering parking for up to 3 (average sized) vehicles.

Internal viewing reveals superbly proportioned accommodation, all on the one level, with the overall length of the undeveloped attic area extending to approx 75’. The impressive accommodation comprises, porch style reception hall, splendid lounge which could easily be utilised as a combined lounge/dining, separate dining/kitchen which is also of spacious proportion with a stylish “Alno” kitchen and integrated appliances (additional external entrance/exit door off this area), a spacious corridor style secondary hallway leads to two double bedrooms with the “master” bedroom (No 1) featuring a most stylish en-suite shower room/wc.

As mentioned earlier, an extensive undeveloped attic area offers superb additional storage with overall (maximum) dimensions of 75’ length by 15’ wide. Oil central heating and modern double glazing are provided whilst the lounge features a (lpg) traditional solid fuel style “living flame” gas fire. There is mains electricity, water and currently, a broadband connection. A communal septic tank is located within the development. The development is believed to be self-managed with common areas maintained at residents shared costs (exact details to be confirmed via the seller and their solicitor).

Internal viewing is strongly recommended for the client seeking “something different” which enjoys a superb rural setting, albeit perhaps with the comfort/security of neighbours provided by the courtyard style setting of Knockdon and the convenience of a short car journey to a major town nearby. Please note that the “countryside view” photos featured in our sales particulars are views of the countryside surrounding the development generally and are NOT intended to portray that the property itself has these views available from its windows.
