CKD Galbraith offers for sale rural hideaway in Ayrshire
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Newhouse of Auchmannoch, a farmhouse enjoying an enchantingly private situation amidst its own land of some 86 acres surrounded by rural farmland, yet close to the hamlet of Auchencloigh and the neighbouring village of Sorn in Ayrshire.
The farmhouse originates from the 1700s, extended in 1872, and more recently upgraded by the current owners, creating a practical family home yet retaining much of its original rustic charm.
The accommodation is spacious and well planned. Original features are aplenty with oak beams, stone fire surrounds, flagstone flooring and window seating set into the thickness of the walls.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and has a rustic feel with its royal green Rayburn stove and Belfast sinks.
Beyond the kitchen is a utility room and office and the more recent addition of a wonderful family room, formed from an adjoining outbuilding, adds a contrasting modern twist.
Bi-folding oak doors ensure the room is naturally bright and open to a sheltered decked terrace and the gardens beyond.
The master bedroom with its ensuite bathroom and a second bedroom are also a more recent addition – converted from adjoining outbuildings and finished to the same exacting standard. Three further bedrooms are located on the first floor. One room is ensuite and all have uninterrupted country views.
The gardens of Newhouse are mainly lawn and are a natural playground for children and animals.
A large decked area is ideal for alfresco dining and the pond at the rear is often visited by wildlife.
The lands of Newhouse extend to some 86 acres and provide both mixed grazing and woodland. The house itself sits centrally within the land. Outbuildings include a wooden stable block with five loose boxes, a workshop, chicken coop and a field shelter.
Newhouse of Auchmannoch is a wonderful family home which seamlessly combines traditional and modern features alike. Perfect for hobby farming or just a uniquely private residence to sit back and enjoy nature’s ways.
Offers Over £575,000 are being sought.
