“ALDERBANK” – A unique opportunity to acquire an individually designed Detached Country Home, set amidst circa 3.9 acres of formal gardens/woodland, enjoying a splendid countryside setting near to Kirkoswald Village with the A77 providing convenient access north or south.

Designed/built in the early 1960’s for its existing and only owners with a further extension being completed in 1974. The owners of Alderbank have carefully developed the extensive grounds with tree planting to the east/west boundaries which now form well established woodlands, whilst the remaining gardens are laid out in a formal manner to ensure Alderbank is the focal point from which the splendid gardens/woodlands and views to the north/south can be fully enjoyed. On a clear day Ailsa Craig and the coastline can easily be seen from the south garden area and careful sculpting of the west woodlands (by the successful purchaser) could also ensure similar views.

The property itself provides a convenient layout of well proportioned accommodation, all on the one level, with the public rooms and kitchen situated in the west wing and the bedrooms, bathroom/shower room situated in the east wing (single step up to the east wing). Alderbank was designed to take full advantage of its tranquil surroundings with delightful views available from all the apartments. The successful purchaser perhaps has the option of further development of the property (subject to required planning permission/building warrant etc) with a substantial floored/lined attic area within the east wing whilst further development of both wings is a possibility. The period in which the property was built has ensured well proportioned rooms/windows and excellent internal storage. The current specification is of modern style although it is perhaps fair to comment that the successful purchaser may wish to update the kitchen and bathrooms areas. The services include, oil central heating, modern double glazing, mains water/electricity and a private septic tank.

The excellent accommodation comprises, spacious entrance porch and reception hall, superbly proportioned formal lounge with feature picture style windows and patio door enjoying outstanding views, separate formal dining room, generously appointed dining/kitchen, four bedrooms (three of double proportion, one single), family bathroom and additional shower room/wc. A substantial private driveway with turning point leads to a detached timber built double garage which provides secure parking/storage.

The property is set amidst circa 3.9 acres of well established grounds comprising formal gardens, lawned with display flower/shrubs beds/trees whilst to the east & west boundaries are mature woodlands with informal woodland paths to the west which also conceal a “hidden” summerhouse. A greenhouse and timber tool shed/sheltered store are also provided.

Viewing is strictly by private appointment through Black Hay Estate Agents, telephoning either Paula Haworth or Graeme Lumsden on 01292 283606.


Graeme Lumsden of Black Hay comments –

“Internal viewing of Alderbank and its gardens/woodland will confirm that it has the rare attribute of being a home that one can retreat to and enjoy the peace & tranquillity that its wonderful setting affords.

The owners have enjoyed their unique home since it was built in the 1960’s and in my opinion the passage of over 45 years to 2008 emphasises that they built & have undoubtedly enjoyed their perfect home taking maximum advantage of the wonderful setting which is both discreet and accessible.

A home which you can retreat to and switch off from the world is actually quite rare, indeed in my 21 years of estate agency they are rarer than you think. The successful purchaser of Alderbank will be lucky enough to drive home and truly appreciate that Alderbank is their new home!”
