CKD Galbraith offer unique small Ayrshire estate with handsome Georgian house set amidst landscaped gardens with stabling, fishings and grazing land
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Barskaig, a beautiful small estate situated on the banks of the River Stinchar – one of the most productive salmon fishing rivers in Ayrshire.
The property dates from 1802 and has been lovingly maintained by the present owners in keeping with the original Georgian character and charm.
The accommodation is formed over 3 levels, and includes a wonderfully proportioned drawing room, formal dining room with bay window, a charming snug and a fully fitted kitchen with Aga.
A useful utility room opens to the rear gardens and there is also a cloakroom and WC.
Three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the first floor with two further bedrooms and a shower room on the second floor.
Barskaig extends to approximately 11 acres and is naturally sheltered by the surrounding rolling countryside and some policy woodland.
The house overlooks a formal lawn and the gardens have been carefully planted to provide year round colour and interest. There are over fifty specimen Acers as well as various conifers, exotic ferns and palms.
In addition Barskaig offers excellent stabling within a traditional stone and slate building, a tack room, feedstore, garage and garden equipment store. An all-weather riding arena lies to the north of the house as well as a general purpose shed, summerhouse and large greenhouse. Five excellent paddocks are all well drained and fenced with an electrical connection.
Fishing rights along a 250 yard stretch of the east bank of the River Stinchar offers a reliable run of sea trout and salmon. The river forms the western boundary of the property and the Barskaig beat has two good holding pools.
Barskaig offers the complete sporting package with a wonderful Georgian country house at the heart and is available at offers over £775,000.
