CKD Galbraith offer delightful cottage with beautiful views in peaceful Ayrshire conservation village

Leading independent Scottish property consultants CKD Galbraith are offering for sale a lovely detached cottage in the conservation village of Barr in the South Ayrshire hills.

Rowantree Cottage sits in a picturesque and quiet location benefiting from wonderful rural views.

The village of Barr is believed to have been established in the 17th century by smugglers who needed a safe place close to the secluded bays of the Ayrshire coast while having access to the Raiders Road which runs close by. The village has a well regarded primary school, shop and a village pub, and is about 8 miles east from the seaside town of Girvan.

Originally built in the mid 1800s, with flexible accommodation, the rooms are light and bright and there is a lovely landscaped colourful cottage garden with an assortment of outbuildings, ideal for buyers looking to be self sufficient by growing vegetables in the kitchen garden complete with polytunnel.

Nestled in the Stinchar Valley, Barr is a popular destination for those seeking outdoor pursuits.  There are country walks and excellent cycling paths around Barr with the Changue Forest Trail (13km) being one of the may designated cycling routes in the area. The River Stinchar passes through the village, is a famous salmon fishery and is renowned for its autumn run.

 Rowantree Cottage has been completely renovated and extended to create a lovely home with living room with multi-fuel stove, kitchen, conservatory, shower room and three bedrooms (one of which is presently a sitting room), the cottage is charming in layout and presentation.
