Embedded in the heart of South Ayrshire, on the edge of Symington
village, lies Coodham. The ninety acre estate grounds, stunning lake
and splendid house have fornearly two hundred years attracted immense local
and national interest, both historical and
horticultural. Restoration combined with the
newly constructed interior has created a luxury
classic contemporary living in harmony with nature.
All within easy reach of business and leisure pursuits.
Every aspect designed to create space, time and peace of mind.

HISTORICAL ASPECT

The widow of William Fairlie built the property in 1826, and called it ‘Williamfield’ in honour of her late husband. The Fairlie’s son James Ogilvy Fairlie takes his place in golfing history as the founder of both Prestwick golf course and the inaugural British Open. SirWilliam Holdsworth took over Coodham and significantly improved the house and its surroundings. As a result Coodham became a visitor attraction and a local centre for relaxation with the public making use of the gardens for weekend walks and the frozen lake for curling and skating during the winter.
STRUCTURAL ASPECT

The original A-listed external walls of Coodham House have been fully restoredto their former glory. Within that façade sits a totally new structure designed around the existing windows and other features but which has created luxury contemporary living space, arranged as four luxury apartments and two luxury duplex apartments. The East Wing, Chapel and West Wing creating a further three very individual designer homes. Large windows feature on all sides and over the fourfloors, including the lower ground floor. They flood the interior with light and reveal the exterior and prompt a sense of harmony with rural South West Scotland; framing the picturesque sprawling open aspect which extends to over ninety acres. Lawns to the rear roll down to the lakeside, whilst planning ensures that the open aspect will be retained.
