CKD Galbraith offer country homes within commuting distance of Glasgow

The town of Stewarton has always proved popular with families looking to move out of town and seek the rural idyll, whilst still being within comfortable commuting distance of Glasgow. It also has the advantage of being set in some of North Ayrshire’s prettiest countryside, and its history of artisan and rural industries is reflected in the rich variety of traditional local architecture, much of which is retained in the area today.

Formerly known as “The Bonnet Toun”, Stewarton retains a range of local businesses and services, as well as well regarded primary and secondary schools. Around a 30 minute drive away are the bright lights of the new Silverburn Shopping Centre and Glasgow’s south side.

Two unique examples of lovely country family homes are being marketed through CKD Galbraith’s Ayr office.

Cutstraw Cottage (pictured above) is a delightful listed property, a short distance from the edge of the village. Formerly comprised two cottages, it was once believed to have been home to the village bonnet maker, lending it a further historic connection to the “Bonnet Toun”. Now extended and modernized, the owners have created a comfortable family home with an element of contemporary design whilst still retaining the original character and charm. There are three main reception rooms and three bedrooms within the main house, and a separate self-contained building, currently used as an artist’s studio. A garden with lovely views towards Arran and a 2.7 acre grazing paddock complete this delightful rural holding. It is being marketed at offers over £380,000.

For larger families, Kirkmuir Farm (pictured above) is a fine refurbished farmhouse with adjoining traditional steading, which has been comprehensively refurbished by the present owners to create a lovely family home. The farmhouse has three reception rooms, conservatory, study and four bedrooms, with flexible accommodation including a self-contained office/guest room. The extensive gardens which surround the house have been professionally landscaped and are a particularly fine feature of the farm. There are a number of outbuildings, including a traditional steading offering considerable potential for a variety of uses. In addition there is a useful area of hard standing, and, for equestrian enthusiasts, up to 22 acres of grazing land. Kirkmuir Farm is for sale at offers over £450,000.
