Property Description

Afton Lodge was built circa 1790 and is an impressive country house approached via a long, 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), and the designation of the site adjacent to the house as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The property retains a wealth of period features including original staircase, fine traditional fireplaces, large Georgian windows, fan lights allowing natural light to spill into hallways, textured ceilings and decorative cornice work.

The accommodation within the North Wing 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.

Externally the property is set in approximately 1.35 acres of garden grounds with sweeping lawns, specimen trees, greenhouse, feature borders, large patio and ample gravelled parking space for several cars.
