CKD Galbraith offers for sale successful working Ayrshire stud farm
A purpose built South Ayrshire stud is now offering prospective buyers the chance to take the reins as it goes on the open market through Scotland’s leading property consultants, CKD Galbraith.
New Hall Stud, formerly known as Hall Farm Stud, was established in 1975 and has bred many winning race horses over the years, the most prolific being Donna Blini (Bertolini ex Cal Norma's Lady).
Starting with a handful of mares, the stud has grown to run a band of approximately 36 broodmares and their foals. In 2000 the stud relocated to its current location in Barbieston to concentrate solely on breeding quality, commercial racehorses. Along with the broodmares, facilities are also provided for yearlings, a number of recuperating horses out of training and resting broodmares.
The property’s outstanding facilities are ideally placed for the market town of Ayr and Ayr Racecourse and have numerous fixtures to allow new owners to continue operating as a stud farm or as an exceptional competition or livery yard.
The sale of New Hall Stud includes a beautifully presented three bedroom house completed in 2001. The property sits in a peaceful position and offers views of the surrounding gardens and grazing paddocks. The outlook is best enjoyed from the spacious kitchen and adjoining living room with double height oak beams, tiled underfloor heating and French doors opening out onto the enclosed rear garden.
The stud is well equipped for a range of equestrian uses with 27 loose boxes, including four foaling boxes, staff room, main office, a covered arena, horse walker and several yearling and foaling sheds. The land comprises 12 well fenced paddocks giving a total of around 66 acres of land, this has been divided into five nursery paddocks and seven smaller paddocks.
Vivien Wright, who is handling the sale of New Hall Stud from CKD Galbraith’s Ayr office, said: “It’s very rare for such a well-equipped and modern equestrian property to appear on the open Scottish property market and we expect a high level of interest from within the equestrian fraternity.
