CKD Galbraith offer former Victorian coach house requiring complete refurbishment

Leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is marketing a fine substantial Victorian coach house now requiring complete refurbishment, close to the pretty village of Fairfield by Mauchline in Ayrshire.

An imposing property, Nether Failford is an impressive 4 bedroom family house standing in about 2.7 acres. The house surrounds a central courtyard with stabling and garaging with potential for a variety of uses – stabling, studio, a restorer’s workshop or valuable storage.

The house has suffered water damage due to burst pipes and there is also extensive rot problems, as a result the interior of the building requires comprehensive restoration. The accommodation is extensive with about 2066 sq ft on two floors including sitting room, living room, 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), kitchen and utility. There is garaging and stables which can easily be converted to create a substantial country house. Planning permission has been obtained for the conversion of the house and outbuildings to 4 houses for redevelopment.

From the grounds there are fabulous views over rolling countryside. The sides and rear of the house are enclosed by mature gardens, including rhododendrons and a range of mature trees including beech and conifer providing shelter and privacy. There is also a small paddock.

In the late 1800s, the coach house had 2 upper floor flats which were used as living quarters for staff and farm workers working on the estate. Towards the rear of the house, a ewe shrubbery avenue previously lead to the walled garden of the original Failford House.

The impressive Mauchline gorge viaduct over the River Ayr is nearby, and the award-winning public house “The Failford Inn” is just on the doorstep.

The house will attract considerable interest and Nether Failford is an outstanding opportunity to re-create what will be a superb country house.

Offers over £180,000 are being sought.
