Green light for residential conversion of former South Ayrshire care home
A former care home will be turned into 11 new residential properties after plans for a change of use at the site were approved by South Ayrshire Council.
Rozelle Holm Farm in Alloway will be transformed into a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes, while the original cottages will be retained.
Among the changes, which are necessary to reconfigure the site into the new homes, will be the removal of a large conservatory, while a glazed link, storage shed and various small extensions are also expected to be removed.
The buildings will then be subdivided and upgraded.
According to the design statement from LMA Architects, the aim is to convert and upgrade the existing buildings to form 11 “high quality residential mews-style units” along with associated car parking, gardens and amenity spaces.
Rozelle was sold for housing in April in a seven-figure deal, changing hands for around £1.25 million.
The former 38-bed care home closed permanently at the beginning of 2021 following the impact of Covid.
New owner Jab Property Developments Ltd said it will “tastefully” redevelop the site.
