''Auchinlee'', High Askomil, Campbeltown, PA28 6EN
''Auchinlee'' is an Italianate style 3 storey B Listed former villa with a modern two storey extension to the east. Approached via an attractive driveway, leading to a visitors/staff car park, the building overlooks a generally level grassed front garden, with an extensive area of sloping ground to the rear, which has been previously largely cultivated by a community garden organisation.
This former care home provided 24 en-suite residents bedrooms, arranged over three floors, all serviced by a lift. A resident’s lounge and dining room overlooked the front garden and the building also provided extensive ancillary accommodation as well as staff facilities.
