Morrison House, 2 Racecourse View, Ayr KA7


8 Bedrooms
8 Bathrooms

Morrison House was constructed around 1880 and is without doubt one of Ayrshire’s very finest and most imposing mansions ever built. Enjoying glorious views over Ayr’s old racecourse and towards the seafront, the property offers scale, grandeur and period detail rarely available.

The property is accessed via a secure gated entrance onto a sweep gravel driveway which provides extensive parking for numerous vehicles. Entering the property is via a marble and stone carved entrance vestibule which provides access into the centrepiece of this beautiful home, a truly magnificent 45’ reception hall complete with cantilever staircase, original oak marquetry flooring, feature fireplace and beautiful arched windows.

The ground floor accommodation is arranged around the reception hall. There is a beautiful drawing room with a bow window towards the front. The formal dining room is found at the opposite side of the reception hall. An inner hallway gives access to a bar, study, library and a breath taking ballroom. The 44ft ballroom is a masterpiece of Victorian craftsmanship and comprises many unique features, including; a barrel vaulted ceiling with ornate cornice, carved stone pillars, leaded windows set into stone mullions plus an outstanding carved timber feature fireplace. To the east side of the property there is a sitting room, playroom and cloakroom/ WC with access to the kitchen at the rear of the hall. The 27 foot kitchen is modern, fully fitted and includes a dining area. There is a utility room plus access to a pantry, two larders and wine store.

The bedroom accommodation is equally impressive and is arranged around a beautiful galleried landing. In all there are eight double bedrooms plus four separate bathrooms. The master suite offers beautiful views over the racecourse towards the Carrick hills and the seafront and also benefits from a dressing room and ensuite bathroom.

To the rear of the property is Orchard Cottage, a self contained two bedroom property. There are wonderful mature gardens further complementing this outstanding property with several species of mature trees, shrubs and seasonal planting. Very rarely do homes of this stature become available to the open market and this is without question one of the most impressive period properties we have ever inspected.
