Media Release: CKD Galbraith launch award-winning Hendry Homes 2011 Portfolio

CKD Galbraith

ONE of Scotland’s leading independent property consultancies, CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is pleased to announce that Piperston House, an outstanding country house in a fabulous rural location near Ayr, is the first house to be launched of the Hendry Homes 2011 Portfolio.

This is one of several superb country homes which will be completed to order in 2012.

Says a spokesperson: “Hendry Homes managing director Iain Hendry has years of experience of building stunning homes using his trademark green oak frames, such as at Purclewan Mill, an outstanding award winning (‘Best Property Scotland 2008”’) hamlet of traditional country homes. Subsequent Hendry Homes’ 2009 Barquhey and 2010 High Abbothill offerings have sold within weeks, whilst Gadgirth House, Iain’s own house, was recently featured in ’25 Beautiful Homes’.”

Enjoying unrivalled and uninterrupted views across the Carrick Hills to the Isle of Arran, Piperston House is a stunning and individual five bedroom country house, being created using the walls of a former stone cottage, on an outstanding site close to the hamlet of Hollybush.

The house is designed to take advantage of its exceptional location. The ground floor reception rooms are linked by a central hall with picture windows and patio doors offering a spacious and bright living area, complemented by exposed oak frames, and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. There are five bedrooms, including a stunning master bedroom suite with vaulted beamed ceiling, and four beautifully appointed bathrooms. A large kitchen, cloakroom, utility room and study complete this thoughtfully designed family home.

Finishes are to the highest specification, with oak doors, double glazed windows in natural oak finished PVC-u, flooring including oak, natural travertine or porcelain tiles, and kitchens by Alno with Siemens/Neff appliances.

Externally natural stone finishes are complemented by external cedar cladding. There will be a double garage with covered BBQ area and gardens landscaped to the same high specification.

There is a choice of heating by air or ground source heat pump – marvellous carbon neutral solutions, widely used in Scandinavia. In addition are photovoltaic electricity production and solar thermal hot water options and a heat recovery ventilation system. This is therefore a truly thermally efficient home keeping energy costs to the minimum. Thermagraphic imagery is carried out during and after completion, ensuring this home performs exactly how it should.

The 2011 Hendry Homes Portfolio is being launched at an open day at Gadgirth House on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June from 11.00 am – 3.00 pm. Details of Piperston House and the other houses being launched in 2011 will be available.

Piperston House is being marketed at a Fixed Price of £695,000.
