CKD Galbraith offer superb Victorian House
near Robert Burns birthplace
SCOTLAND'S leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith’s Ayr office is marketing a superb Victorian house, situated on the outskirts of Alloway village, occupying a convenient location close to the county town of Ayr.
Dating from around 1887, the house has been extensively remodelled and extended by the current owners who purchased the house in 2001, and they have created a magnificent family home on two storeys. Drumbarr is constructed of blonde sandstone under a slated roof with large windows giving light and access to the lovely gardens and views.
Internally, the rooms are spacious and well proportioned. With the accommodation arranged over two floors, each part of the house has been beautifully designed and restored. The principal rooms have considerable character and incorporate many fine features including a wonderful open fireplace and gorgeous luxurious bathrooms and both the Main Hall and Drawing Room include “Timorous Beasties” wallpaper. There are five bedrooms, while a self-contained annex flat has excellent letting potential. From the Family Room, which is a light, bright and airy room, there leads a lovely decked terrace which gives access to the gardens below.
From the outside, Drumbarr stands in attractive mature gardens of about 1.6 acres with carefully designed features whilst offering interest and colour at all times of the year. There is also extensive garaging and kennelling.
With the lovely village of Alloway steeped in Burns history only minutes away including Burns Cottage, the Tam O’ Shanter Experience and the Old Alloway Kirk, Drumbarr presents a rare opportunity to purchase an outstanding, substantial country house set in beautiful private garden grounds.
Offers in excess of the Guide Price £1,000,000 are being sought.
