CKD Galbraith market delightful Alloway
house with historic local connections
A RARE opportunity has arisen to purchase a privately situated home occupying a delightful picturesque plot within Alloway Village in Ayrshire.
Kilkee was built in the former school grounds of Cambusdoon Park prep school in Alloway, for a schoolmaster and his young family. All that is left of the school now is the former lodge house and grounds, however Kilkee has remained in the ownership of the same family who over the years have created a much loved home sitting in delightful gardens.
One of the few remaining houses of its type in the area, Kilkee is typical of a house of its era, with an element of the fairytale in its appearance, particularly at this time of year when it is shrouded in wisteria and clematis.
The house benefits from a wonderful situation within a large plot with a southerly aspect and views towards the Carrick Hills. The principal rooms overlook the gardens which surround the property and afford great privacy.
The village of Alloway is known for its historic connections with Robert Burns, and the location of Kilkee has strong associations as being on the route that Tam O’Shanter, in the poem of the same name, took from the local inn to nearby Brig O’ Doon.
Kilkee has considerable character and charm. The accommodation comprises 3 reception rooms, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. Although the house requires a degree of modernisation there is considerable potential for extension or complete redevelopment of an outstanding site subject to gaining the necessary planning permissions.
Opportunities to purchase a property like Kilkee are rare in Alloway.
Offers Over £450,000 are being sought.
