A luxury four-star country house hotel situated within reach of the famous Trump Turnberry resort has gone on the market with an asking price of £1.48m.
Enterkine House, which overlooks the valley of the River Ayr, has built up a strong reputation with its 2 AA Rosette restaurant headed up by Paul Moffat winning wide acclaim from visitors.
The country house hotel includes farmland, woodland, a walled garden, ruined cottage, events marquee with its own bar and two residential properties.
The hotel is located within the grounds of the Enterkine rural estate in Ayrshire, which is also home to Kirk House and Steading, a six-bedroom traditional farmhouse, currently used as overspill accommodation for the hotel.
The Lodge is a Victorian gate lodge with views over the adjacent countryside and a 2.5-acre area of land suitable for use as a pony paddock.
Within the grounds of Enterkine, there is an extensive range of modern and traditional buildings which offers potential for development under a new owner.
Bob Cherry, a partner with Galbraith, comments: “The purchaser of Enterkine would find it relatively straightforward to continue the current business, which is well-established, and there are further opportunities for diversification or expansion of the tourism and events facilities on the estate, subject to the necessary consents. This is a beautiful estate with a thriving hotel business and potential for further development.”
Brian Sheldon, regional director at Christie & Co’s Glasgow office, who is handling the sale, adds, “The market for country house hotels such as Enterkine House has vastly improved in recent years. Its location in South Ayrshire and within the such an enviable estate and countryside will attract local, regional and potentially international operators. Whilst the business is trading well, there is certainly scope for further growth.”
Enterkine is for sale as a whole with offers over £1.48m considered, or in eight separate lots.
