Holmston House Care Home to Be Converted Into a 66-Bed Facility
Holmston house care home – Primesite Developments have bought Holmston House, a former poorhouse in Ayr, Scotland. Listed as a Grade II* building, it is set to be converted into a 66-bed care home. It is expected to open in 2019.
66 bedroom care home to be built on site of former poorhouse
A new 66 bedroom care home has been submitted to Burnley Borough Council as part of the regeneration of the area. The site of the former Bull and Butcher pub stood until it was torched in 2016 by arsonists. There was extensive structural damage, so the proposed development will be significantly bigger than the minimum number of bedrooms. The development will feature 66 bedrooms and 24 car parking spaces, including two for electric vehicles.
The new development would bring 40 to 50 jobs for local people and would also generate economic benefits for the town. The main entrance to the care home would be located on Cranes Meadow Way, a new road within the development. A developer statement details the benefits of the new development and its size and design. Comments are welcome until December 23. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that the care home will only be able to accommodate a maximum of 66 residents.
It was converted to a care home in 2017

The building, built in 1857, has a B-listed status and stands on 3.37 acres of grounds. Its conversion into a care home took place in 2017. The site is conveniently located off the A77, close to the town centre and railway station.

The former Holmston House care home in Ayr is set to undergo a transformation as a 66-bed facility. The Victorian building was built in 1856 and is listed, and Primesite Developments plans to turn it into a residential dwelling. As well as providing a homely environment, the property will also provide high-quality care for those who need it. Primesite will make the transformation happen in a matter of months.
It is in Holmston Road, Ayr
The B-listed building on the site of Holmston House is situated on the main road into Ayr and sits in grounds of 3.37 acres. It was originally a poor house and hospital and was converted to a care home in 2017. Located off the A77, Holmston House is a popular option for those requiring dementia care. Residents can walk to the town centre and train station within a few minutes.
The Ayr County Hospital, designed by local architect John Murdoch, was constructed on a hilltop near the River Tay. The hospital’s three-bay main facade featured fluted Ionic pilasters and a varied skyline. Its imposing Victorian façade was completed in 1890 and was opened in January 1911. It has since become a home for elderly and disabled people who need assistance with their daily lives.
