Water's Edge, Harbour Road, Maidens.

Exceptional architect designed 4-bedroom house in a dramatic coastal location with spectacular sea views

The Knowes, a rocky outcrop just south of Maidens in Ayrshire, was once the site of a shipyard owned by The Marquess of Ailsa, owner of Culzean Castle and chief of Clan Kennedy.

For many years a fisherman’s cottage stood there but it was demolished and in its place rose Water’s Edge, a modern masterpiece of inspiring design with a dominating position close to the shoreline, breath-taking views over The Firth of Clyde, and striking use of glass, particularly the full height window wall of the formal lounge and galleried landing.

With a huge amount of imagination and attention to detail, the house is arranged over three levels, with the ground floor comprising stunning reception hall, beautifully equipped kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, lounge, bedroom with en-suite, office, and a cloakroom/WC.

Even the stairs make the most of the views and lead to the upper floor which features a snug with its own day kitchen, library/seating area with rear balcony, and three large bedrooms, all with en-suites and balconies with sea views, while the basement level encompasses a barbecue area (which opens to the sea and hot tub), fantastic home cinema, shower room, wine storage, integral triple garage, utility room, and a garden store. A lift serves all three floors.

Externally, the property is entered through double gates and a drive that leads to a block paved parking area, while the grounds, which extend to around four acres, include a landscaped garden at the rear with feature lighting, specimen trees and is designed to enhance the sense of seclusion and wildness of the sea.
