Media Release: CKD Galbraith offer for sale unique country homes in Ayrshire


LEADING Scottish independent property consultancy, CKD Galbraith, are marketing three unique properties, each offering the opportunity to create a lovely rural family home in Ayrshire, deep in the heart of the picturesque Girvan and Stinchar Valleys.

The beautiful South Ayrshire countryside is a popular destination for those seeking outdoor pursuits. To the west are the stunning beaches and landmarks of the Ayrshire coastline, including the renowned Culzean Castle and Country Park.

To the north is the market town of Ayr, and historic ‘Burns Country’.

The beautiful Loch Doon and Galloway Forest Park are to the south. There are golf courses such as Turnberry, which also boasts a world renowned hotel and spa, yachting facilities at Troon and Maidens, and opportunities for game sports as well as trout and salmon fishing in the area’s rivers and lochs.

South Ayrshire is well connected for commuter travel, with the A/M77 giving a direct link from Ayr to Glasgow, and the railway station in Girvan providing regular services to Ayr, Glasgow and Stranraer.

Drummuck Farm, about four miles from Turnberry, is a charming traditional farmhouse with adjoining two-bed cottage, mature garden, woodlands and a grazing paddock. It is a great opportunity for someone looking for additional family accommodation, or a letting business, and is on the market at offers over £295,000.

To the south, Stable Cottage (pictured above) is a recently refurbished and extended country cottage, in a particularly picturesque setting along the banks of the Water of Gregg, close to the conservation village of Barr. The house is set in a sheltered garden with a bothy and range of outbuildings, and about 6.2 acres of land. It lies at the edge of the Galloway Forest Park, a hotspot for cycling and hiking enthusiasts, and is being marketed at offers over £265,000.

Threave Farm near Crosshill is a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking for a substantial, traditional farmhouse which could also be extended to form a substantial family home. Centred around an enclosed courtyard, it includes the traditional steading range of buildings. There is also a grazing paddock of around 11 acres. It is on the market at offers over £295,000.
