CKD Galbraith offer outstanding country home in quality small development near Ayr

Leading Scottish property consultants CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is offering for sale Mallard Cottage, the last remaining country home in this quality small development which CKD Galbraith are marketing at offers over £299,000.

Occupying a fabulous rural location, on the edge of the Carrick Hills just south of Ayr, Burton Farm is a group of substantial, high quality homes constructed by Dawn Developments, who have converted and re-built this traditional stone steading to create a group of six wonderful family homes. 

This excellent detached house has been created from the former Burton Farm steading.

It is an ideal family home within the school catchment areas for Doonfoot Primary and Belmont Academy. 

The location of the farm just south of Doonfoot is a wonderful area for families. Ayr Beach is within walking distance whilst a local cycling trail goes straight into the heart of Alloway. The house has a small easily maintained private garden and allocated parking. The elevated setting offers panoramic views of Ayr, Arran and the Firth of Clyde. 

Dawn Developments have drawn on their many years of experience to create homes with exceptional attention to detail and the finest quality finishes.  

The house is heated by an air source heat pump by Worcester – an eco-friendly solution, widely used in Scandinavia. In addition it benefits from underfloor heating and high performance insulation.
