Property Description

Afton Lodge was built circa 1790 with major extensions around 1905 and 1920, and is an impressive country house approached via a tree-lined tarmac driveway revealing the house in striking elevation against a truly delightful setting. The current owners have investigated the extensive history attached to Afton Lodge, which also features in 'The Castles and Mansions of Ayrshire'. Notable among their findings are the Burns connections of Lady Afton (Catherine Stewart, for whom the house was built)
The property retains a wealth of period features including original staircases, fine traditional fireplaces, large Georgian windows and fan lights allowing natural light to spill into hallways, textured ceilings and decorative cornice work.

The principal accommodation is within the North Wing which comprises, on the elevated ground floor level, a broad and welcoming reception hallway, magnificent drawing room with bay window and Victorian fireplace, dining sized kitchen, sitting room and study. On the first floor there are five well-proportioned bedrooms including a master with en-suite bathroom, shower room and wc. On the lower level there is a stunning formal dining room, secondary kitchen, two further bedrooms, bathroom and wine cellar. A former lift shaft is, at present used for utility purposes on each floor.

The South Wing provides further accommodation extending to 9 principal apartments and could represent an excellent opportunity to earn rental income or to be utilised as home offices.
Externally the property is set in approximately 2.5 acres of garden grounds with sweeping lawns, specimen trees, feature borders, large patio and ample gravelled parking space for several cars.
