Magnificent Ayrshire manor house to rent from CKD Galbraith
A magnificent Grade C listed country house located in Mauchline, East Ayrshire, Scotland, has just been placed onto the lettings market through leading Scottish property consultants CKD Galbraith.
Kingencleugh House which boasts private grounds extending to 3.87 acres, offers flexible accommodation, including eight bedrooms and five reception rooms, and presents a fantastic opportunity to live in a spectacular listed building at a fraction of the price.
This magnificent manor house was erected around 1765 and later rebuilt to plans by Scottish architect, Mervyn Noad as a dower house to Ballochmyle in 1957. To this day the family crest, an elephant, is displayed above the property’s front door.
The property would be ideal as a family home, having recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The house is entered through a set of wooden double doors, this leads to the spacious porch with flagstone floor. After arriving in the entrance hallway with attractive polished wooden flooring you can then explore the lounge, newly fitted kitchen and dining room connected to the kitchen by a traditional hatch and boasting an open fireplace. Additional public rooms include a sitting room, further reception room and utility room.
Located on the Ballochmyle Estate, on the outskirts of the quiet village of Mauchline, Kingencleugh House is surrounded by beautiful countryside and delightful gardens. It was this area that Scotland's National Poet, Robert Burns came to live, on the outskirts of Mauchline at Mossgiel farm in 1784. Many of his poems are believed to have been inspired by the picturesque countryside and written whilst he lived in Mauchline, notably The Holy Fair, To a Mouse, and Holy Willie's Prayer.
Joanna Graham, handling the let of the property for CKD Galbraith, said: “Kingencleugh presents a fantastic opportunity to rent a truly unique Grade C listed house offering modern day living in a spectacular rural setting and steeped in Scottish history.
“This property would be the ideal home for a large family looking for something spacious and impressive but also with the benefits of flexibility and the value for money that renting such a historic building allows for.”
East Ayrshire’s rich countryside offers a wealth of opportunity for leisure activities, from walking the tranquil moorlands to exploring Dean Castle Country Park. For the golfing enthusiast there are several world class facilities within a short drive of the Estate.
Mauchline village itself offers a range of local amenities including several shops, school, post office and bank. The A76 gives direct access to Kilmarnock and Glasgow Prestwick airport is a mere 13 miles away.
Kingencleugh House is available for rent at £1,700 PCM.
