CKD Galbraith offers for sale a lovely Ayrshire Georgian farmhouse with stables and land
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Midton of Balgay, by Kilmarnock, a traditional farmhouse built of white rendered stone under a pitched slate roof.
It is thought to date from the late 1700s, but has been thoroughly modernised and extended to create a modern day family home with a sensible layout, well-proportioned rooms and an attention to detail throughout.
The property overlooks its own grounds of some 9 acres and enjoys total seclusion and panoramic country views, yet is just a few miles from the main town of Kilmarnock.
Internally the property is well equipped for country life with tiled floors and a shower room off the utility room.
The kitchen is undoubtedly the hub of the house and is fitted with a range of soft cream units complemented by wooden worktops and a cream range. Natural light floods the room from two ceiling windows and an internal window draws light in from the hallway.
The drawing room is also worthy of note. Almost 40 feet in length, the feeling of space is further enhanced with the wonderful high ceiling and triple aspect windows. There is an elevated seating area within the room with a polished oak floor.
A conservatory and sitting room provide more informal living space and there is also a separate dining room.
Three bedrooms are located on the first floor. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There is a further bedroom and adjacent bathroom on the ground floor.
The attention to detail continues outside and the grounds of Midton complement the house beautifully. A level lawn at the rear is interspersed with mature trees and is a haven for playing children.
The tarmac courtyard at the front is a practical, easily maintained area with access to the large adjoining barn and garage. Additional outbuildings include stables, a general purpose shed and a hay shed - all are well maintained. The grazing land is well fenced and divided into 4 paddocks.
Offers Over £520,000 are being sought.
