CKD Galbraith offers for sale secluded Ayrshire country house in its own grounds with views over Carrick Hills
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Knoweholm, a secluded Ayrshire country house situated within its own grounds of some 21 acres with far reaching views towards the Carrick Hills.
The property lies about one mile from the village of Minishant – a small yet thriving village formed along the A77. The village was known historically for its blanket weaving factories but is now a popular base for commuters to both Ayr and Glasgow. There is a general store and post office in the village as well as a small primary school and two well regarded family run restaurants.
The property was built in the mid-sixties and is a sprawling ranch style country house designed with light and space in mind. The driveway winds upwards towards the house and the elevation is sufficient to afford wonderful views across the countryside to the Carrick Hills. The stables are located adjacent to the house and were originally built for thoroughbred racehorses. There are six good sized loose boxes and two larger boxes of approximately 16 foot square. The stables are currently being used as a cattery and the current owners run a profitable business with a license to house 26 cats.
Internally the accommodation is well planned and predominantly on ground level. There are three good sized bedrooms with the fourth bedroom or home office being the only room upstairs.
The drawing room is of particular note with its open beamed ceiling and wall of windows looking over the garden.
The kitchen was recently replaced and the adjacent dining room is also a bright room with a large picture window. There is a cosy sitting room with patio doors which open to the courtyard and joined to the house by a covered portico is a laundry room.
The gardens of Knoweholm are mature and provide natural seclusion and shelter. A well tended lawn lies on either side of a tarmac drive and an area of mixed woodland marks the southern boundary. The lands of Knoweholm extend to about 21 acres with the grazing in two large well fenced fields. There is also a double garage.
Offers Over £590,000 are being sought.
