ONE of Scotland’s leading independent property consultancies, CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is marketing a lovely example of a traditional farmhouse with original courtyard steading, set quietly in the rolling Irvine Valley in East Ayrshire.
Less than four miles from Newmilns, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside, is Eastfield, a charming four bedroom farmhouse with adjoining outbuildings surrounding an enclosed courtyard.
The local area is steeped in history and industrial heritage. The nearby towns of Newmilns and Darvel, once known as ‘The Lace Town’, were historically the centre of the Ayrshire lace-making industry and well known for their exports throughout the world.
There are also connections with the Earls of Loudon and with Robert the Bruce, who fought and won the battle of nearby Loudon Hill in 1307.
Eastfield dates from around 1863 and retains much of its original character and appeal. There are four bedrooms, including a stunning loft bedroom with lovely views, three reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen and ancillary utility areas. The present owners have done much to modernise the house whilst retaining it’s intrinsic charm and taking care to retain as much as possible of the original and sometimes eclectic features of the property.
From the courtyard at the rear can be gained a sense of the original working farm. Stone walls enclose the yard and outline the ruins of a former piggery and cattle byre. The present layout includes a range of barns, currently utilised as stables and storage sheds. The substantial byre to the eastern wing of the house could, subject to planning consent, be incorporated into the house to extend the existing accommodation. In addition, planning permission exists for the conversion of the western side of the yard to create a separate two bedroom house.
The courtyard overlooks grounds of around 1.8 acres, attractively laid out to include a mature copse and a substantial pond which provides an attractive focal point.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a delightful traditional farm steading in this quiet and picturesque part of Ayrshire. Offers Over £310,000 are being sought.
