The White House, By Troon – Designed & built in the late 1930’s by Alex Mair for Dr John Rowan, subsequently owned by Lord McAndrew, The White House was originally a very substantial Detached Country Residence set amidst extensive private gardens with panoramic sea views to the south. An impressive home of understated elegance The White House was sympathetically converted into 3 individual homes in the 1980’s, formed around the privately owned courtyard which serves as the initial focal point on entering the grounds. This particular property deservedly retains The White House name as it is formed from the major portion of the original house and substantially retains the character, features and 7 Main Apartment Accommodation of the original house together with the extensive, circa 1.75 acres, private gardens/woodland, whilst still enjoying the best views, southerly/westerly to the sea/countryside.

Located just off the A79 (adjacent to renowned Troon) screened by private woodland, The White House is entered through a pillared entrance onto the courtyard which is exclusively owned by The White House (pedestrian access only for the adjacent owners). The focal point within the courtyard is the original art deco style geometric main door entrance providing access to The White House whilst the substantial private gardens to the front are hidden from view, again exclusively owned by The White House (entirely private with no access to adjacent owners). The boundary to the east features the private woodland adjacent to which is an entirely private driveway leading to a very substantial 8+ car garage/workshop/office whilst further private courtyard parking is also available.

The entrance vestibule welcomes visitors and owners alike with a main door from here leading onto an impressive reception hall which leads to the ground floor accommodation, all of which (excluding the wc/cloaks & utility hallway) enjoy southerly garden views. An elegant art deco style staircase is discreetly positioned to the side of the reception hall, this leading past a focal point half-landing to a spacious upper hallway which leads onto the main bedrooms (Nos 1, 2 & 3) – again all enjoying elevated southerly garden/sea views, whilst the shower room/wc overlooks the courtyard. Finally, a hidden staircase from the upper hallway leads to the attic level which accommodates a substantial room – currently a library/study, however easily adaptable for alternative use as 4th bedroom, “teenager’s den”, office etc

In detail, the well proportioned accommodation, which retains considerable character and charm comprises, on ground floor, charming reception hall with wc/cloaks off, splendid formal lounge with twin focal points of recessed fireplace on main wall and Ύ height picture windows enjoying delightful garden/sea views, a separate formal dining room leads onto the former loggia – now an enclosed sun/morning room enjoying garden views with French style doors leading across the large semi circular shaped patio to the gardens, the dining kitchen offers excellent potential for re-styling whilst a useful utility hallway adjacent features an additional door to the garden.

The upper hallway is of broad corridor style with all three bedrooms to the front - the “master” bedroom (No 1) of spacious proportion with splendid views from its picture style bay window, a “dual access” art deco style bathroom serves either as an en-suite or main bathroom if entered from the upper hallway, bedroom No 2 is currently an informal study whilst bedroom 3 enjoys a similar proportion/views to the master bedroom. A separate art deco style shower room & wc are situated off the upper hallway. A doorway located in an alcove (which leads to bedroom 2) off the upper hallway conceals the staircase which leads to the attic level, this featuring a very substantial room which is currently a split level library/study with a separate door leading onto a further undeveloped attic storage area.

Services include mains water, waste, and electricity. Double Glazing and Oil Fired Central Heating are featured. A long driveway adjacent to the private woodland provides parking whilst also leading to a very substantial detached garage/workshop, this extending to over 80’ in length, accommodating approx’ 8 cars with further storage/workshop area remaining. In addition the courtyard area provides private parking for The White House only.

The private garden grounds extend to circa 1.75 acres including the woodland area on the east boundary adjacent to the A79. The landscaped gardens are well established reflecting the owners keen interest in same with a substantial lawn and an array of flowers/shrubs and trees providing a picturesque setting for The White House. The southerly views include the sea/coastline and Arran on the horizon whilst the edge of Prestwick Airport is to the east, to the west are fields adjacent to Southwood Road which leads to Royal Troon Golf Course and Troon itself.

The White House is very convenient for access to the adjacent A79 which provides easy access across the Ayrshire Coastline, North to Glasgow and beyond or south to Dumfries & Galloway. Ayrshire is world renowned for its world class golf courses including nearby Royal Troon and Turnberry to the south. Prestwick Airport is minutes drive and provides air links within the UK, Europe whilst Glasgow Airport can be accessed via the A78 or A77 to the M8.

Graeme Lumsden, Estate Agency Director of Black Hay comments – “The White House is an exceptional home which will appeal to the client seeking “something a little bit different”. Its understated elegance has echoes of the earlier art deco period of the 1920’s/30’s with the simple design and occasional geometric features complimenting the well proportioned accommodation which enjoys delightful southerly aspects. Having sold a wide variety of fine character conversions, particularly in Pollokshields & Whitecraigs on the South Side of Glasgow, in my opinion The White House is easily comparable on many levels. Perhaps the “conversion” description is misleading as The White House has not been compromised, importantly it retains the substantial character, charm and accommodation of the original house together with the majority of the original garden grounds and southerly views whilst the substantial garage/workshop will perhaps be of particular appeal to the enthusiastic car owner!” Viewing by Private Appointment through Black Hay – telephone 01292 283606.
