Bonnyton House is conveniently located two miles south of the village of Drongan in Ayrshire. The dwelling is completely enclosed within its own private grounds with off-road parking for several vehicles. Bonnyton House has recently been partially re-roofed and although the property retains many original traditional features it may benefit from a degree of cosmetic modernisation.
Bonnyton House is a substantial Victorian property (1850’s) set over three floors. Already a comfortable family home, it could also offer potential for commercial development, given the diversity of the property which includes a detached cottage and stable. Ideal tourist-based industry options include B&B, self-catering holidays with or without horses and creative retreats. There is about 9.91 acres of grazing land, woodland and a wild flower meadow encouraging a diversity of species including well established orchids, knapweed and yellow rattle.
Bonnyton House is located on a quiet country road two miles from Drongan and within easy commuting distance to Ayr and major road networks. Drongan is a friendly community and offers a range of local services, with primary schooling available locally. A wider range of services can be found in nearby Ayr. There is a bus service between Ayr and Cumnock which goes past the front gates of Bonnyton House. Beautiful sandy beaches are within a 20 minute drive from the property.
A feature of the area is the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory near Dalmellington on the edge of the UK’s first Dark Sky Observatory and Park is ideal for individuals, groups, clubs and all with an interest in astronomy. Bonnyton House itself benefits from little light pollution and provides fantastic observation potential for the amateur astronomer.
The garden grounds at Bonnyton are well established and have been cleverly sectioned off with a wide variety of mature trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and ponds. These garden features attract birds and other wildlife. Included within the garden grounds, and again cleverly screened and sectioned off, are three stables and a foaling box.
There are three stables and a foaling box with hardstanding aprons. These stables have been built and used over the years for the owners’ own equestrian purposes, but could be developed to encourage tourist based or personal enterprises such as, equestrian holidays or liveries.
