CKD Galbraith market charming courtyard
house in attractive rural setting
SCOTLAND'S leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is marketing a charming attached country house in an attractive setting with fine westerly views.
Commoncraig Cottage, an attached Courtyard House forms part of Commoncraig Farm, which is quietly situated in open fields close to the popular village of Dunlop, East Ayrshire.
The Cottage, whilst already a substantial house, offers an excellent opportunity to create a stunning family home, planning permission has been obtained for a major alteration to form a detached house and for conversion of the existing stables to further accommodation. The house presently comprises spacious breakfasting kitchen, lounge with French windows leading to the extensive garden, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is an attractive private garden and a paddock of about 1 acre.
On top of the Commoncraigs or Common Crags overlooking Dunlop and the Glazert is a large procumbent boulder known on the OS map as the ‘Carlin’s Stone or Stane’. More commonly the name Carlin was used as a derogatory term for a woman meaning an ‘old hag’. It is also said to be a corruption or Scots equivalent of the Gaelic word ‘Cailleach’, meaning a witch or the ‘old Hag’, the Goddess of Winter. This would therefore be the Witch’s or Hag’s Stone, one of several in Scotland with this name.
Commoncraig Cottage presents a rare opportunity for purchasers to create a wonderful family home, in a delightful rural situation.
Offers over £275,000 are being sought.
