Cosses Country House is a unique, attractively built, detached family home with business potential. The house and garden are south facing and sheltered from prevailing winds. Two miles from the sea and peacefully situated in a hidden valley within the spectacular coastal area of the UNESCO Galloway and Ayrshire Biosphere and Dark Sky Park. The south-facing gardens give way to woodland and river-side walks, a communal pond with a communal boathouse. Cosses Country House is cottage style and much of the character is defined by the sweet chestnut wood throughout, especially the doors and skirting boards, the fitted kitchen, the dining room with wide timber floor, dado and picture rails and wide window ledges. The unusual hexagonal shaped main sitting room reflected in the hexagonal quarry tiled floor has an ornate French stone antique fireplace and 4 feature windows. The hexagonal theme is transposed into the entrance hall and cloakroom, too. The front door gives access, via an entrance vestibule, into the entrance hall, off which there is the cloakroom with WC and wash basin. This hall leads to the main sitting room. From there an inner hall leads to a fitted mini bar with sink, downstairs bedroom with dressing room and the stairs to the upper floor. At first floor level there are two fully fitted bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Also, off the main entrance hall is the dining room which leads to a fully fitted kitchen with ample space for informal dining. French quarry tiles and hand painted wall tiles are a feature and there is a walk-in pantry and a separate wine store. There is a pull-down loft ladder with access to a wooden floored loft, the length of the house. Beyond the kitchen there is a rear entrance hall with access to the courtyard, garden and a family sitting room. This lovely room with wood burning stove, has a large feature bay window overlooking the garden and historic bridge over Crailoch Burn. A ground floor bedroom overlooking the garden and burn has an en-suite bathroom and is accessed via the family room. The gardens at Cosses are a particular feature and include lawns, shrubbery and colourful perennial borders, fine specimen plants, recently planted arboretum and mature trees. The grounds also comprise a large productive kitchen garden and orchard with fruit cage. A large fitted storage shed for machinery and tools and a large lean-to greenhouse were constructed in 2011. Cosses Country House is situated just south of the coastal village of Ballantrae, which is approximately one and a half hours travelling time south of Glasgow. From the south and east, the house is approximately two and a half hours west of the M6 at Gretna Green along the A75 and the A77. South Ayrshire is a county of rolling hills, wonderful rivers, harbours and beautiful beaches. The area is famous for golf and boasts four championship courses, Royal Troon, Prestwick, Western Gailes and Turnberry. Other local courses include Girvan, Stanraer (Creachmore), Dunskey and Glenluce. Fishing is available on the Rivers Stinchar, Luce, Bladnoch, Cree and Urr. All of these rivers are within an hour of the house and there are a number of trout fishing lochs within easy reach. Juvenile salmon and trout are found in Crailoch Burn at Cosses and the pond has carp amongst its aquatic species. Cosses has its own shooting rights and shooting is available on neighbouring estates. Prestwick Airport is approximately one hour by car with cheap European flights and Glasgow International Airport is approximately one and a half hours and provides flights to the London airports and worldwide destinations. The nearest railway station is at Girvan, approximately twenty minutes from the house from where there are regular trains to Glasgow Central via Ayr. There is an excellent Primary school with approximately 60 children and Ballantrae is a very vibrant community with good local services including petrol station, Co-op and post office, award winning Glenapp Castle Hotel.
