Redwood House description

This stunning, custom-built detached house is set along a quiet country lane with fantastic views, in addition, it has its own large, private, landscaped garden, including a pond. This property was both designed and built by the owner, and includes large windows to showcase the views outside, with careful attention to detail in the design of the rooms to maximise space and give a romantic, yet practical feel. It is set in glorious Ayrshire, home of Robert Burns - the spectacular Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, Burns Cottage, Brig O’Doon and Auld Kirk are all close by. It is only a short drive to Culzean Castle with its country park, magnificent gardens, acres of trails, dramatic coastline and beaches. Dumfries House is just 2 miles away. There are many golf courses nearby for all abilities, including the world-famous Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick. Turnberry offers a spa, off-road driving, quad biking, trampolines and astro-turf slides. Visit Galloway Forest for off-road cycling, walking and fishing lochs set in breathtaking scenery. A short ferry trip takes you to the Isle of Arran, where you can visit Lochranza Distillery. From nearby Troon take a day trip to Ireland on the ferry. Enjoy the Ayrshire Coastal Path or the River Ayr Walk, which is on the doorstep. Anglers are spoilt for choice for rivers (permit fishing salmon and sea trout) and sea fishing, with 5 popular fresh water fisheries within just a few miles. Ayr, 14 miles, offers shops, markets, boutiques, swimming, tennis, 10-pin bowling, go-karting, an equestrian centre and skating. Visit Ayr Racecourse, Heads of Ayr Farm Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
