Media Release: CKD Galbraith offer for sale delightful listed cottage in Alloway


ONE of Scotland’s leading independent property consultancies, CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office has announced that an opportunity has arisen to purchase a charming former gate lodge, conveniently situated close to the popular village of Alloway, a sought after residential suburb of Ayr.

Cambusdoon Lodge was the original gatehouse to Cambusdoon House, built for James Baird and latterly a prep school.

Nowadays, only the ruins of an arch remain of the imposing house, along with this strikingly pretty single storey gabled lodge, which is situated at the former entrance gates and boundary wall leading off Greenfield Avenue.

The original sandstone cottage dates from 1807 and is similar in style to nearby lodge houses of the same era, with beautiful Jacobean-style detailing including crow stepped gables and carved stonework.

It has been extended over the years to create a delightful home with accommodation on one level.

There is a formal living room with bay window and adjoining dining room, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom, and a sunny south west facing conservatory.

To the rear are terraced gardens overlooking Belleisle Golf Course.

The village of Alloway is known for its historic connections with Robert Burns, and the location of Cambusdoon Lodge has strong associations with the Bard 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.

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a delightful home of historic local interest, close to the heart of Alloway.

Offers Over £170,000 are being sought.
