CKD Galbraith offers for sale beautiful Ayrshire country house with own grazing land
Leading independent Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale Holmestead, a beautiful country house, privately situated within manicured gardens and its own grazing land of approximately 18 acres.
The property lies about 8 miles south of Ayr and is just a few minutes drive from the village of Dalrymple which lies in the heart of the Doon Valley.
The property dates from the late 1800s but has been extended and sympathetically refurbished to create a wonderfully spacious family home with a lovely level of specification and two integral yet self-contained annexes.
Holmestead is formed around a gravelled courtyard and the accommodation is predominantly on one level with just two bedrooms on the first floor.
The drawing room is an impressive room with floor to ceiling windows and French doors which open to the gardens.
A wood burning stove is set within a large stone surround and the high ceiling has exposed beams.
The kitchen is generously proportioned and has farmhouse style units with a dark blue stove and exposed ceiling beams.
The dining room is sensibly located adjacent to the kitchen and overlooks the gardens.
The master bedroom has a dressing room and an ensuite bathroom which can be accessed from the hallway and there is a second bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor. Two bedrooms are located on the first floor.
The east wing annex can be accessed through the kitchen and provides a bedroom, cosy living room, a fully fitted kitchen with built in appliances and a shower room. A door to the side gardens ensures the annex can be completely self-contained.
The west wing annex gains access through the study and provides similar accommodation with an external door into the courtyard. Both are well finished and are a wonderful addition to the main house for entertaining guests or paying tenants.
In addition to the house itself Holmestead has six good sized stables, a feed store and a tack room as well as a good sized general purpose store. There is also a double garage.
The gardens are an array of seasonal colour and have been tended with much love and attention. A level lawn lies around the house at the rear and is sheltered by mature trees and well stocked borders. A patio opens from the drawing room and faces south. There is also grazing land in three paddocks of about 16 acres.
Despite sizable accommodation Holmestead is extremely energy efficient and has been installed with a Biomass Boiler which is not only cost-effective and eco-friendly but provides annual payments at rates which are guaranteed for 7 years. 16 solar panels have also been installed providing a further Feed in Tariffs for the next 22 years.
Offers Over £595,000 are being sought.
