Media Release: CKD Galbraith offer attractive converted mill in excellent rural location


LEADING Scottish independent property consultancy, CKD Galbraith, is marketing No 1 Dykemill, by Symington in Ayrshire, a former mill which has been converted into a delightful family home.

It is situated in a sought after location close to the conservation village of Symington, and within a short drive of the A/M77 links to Glasgow.

Formerly the mill for Coodham Estate, Dykemill is believed to date from the mid-18thcentury, and is built mainly of stone on two storeys under a pitched slate roof. It was fully renovated and converted around 20 years ago.

One of two attached houses converted from the original mill, it has been carefully designed to preserve its outlook and privacy.

The main reception rooms on the ground floor and four bedrooms on the first floor face the front of the house, taking advantage of the south-easterly outlook over the private and enclosed garden.

There is a large kitchen/dining room, cloakroom, lounge and study/bedroom five on the ground floor and on the first floor, four bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom. The formal lounge has a deep set fireplace with multi-fuel stove, whilst the kitchen/dining room has been attractively fitted with farmhouse units, Belfast sink and range cooker. Both rooms benefit from glazed double doors opening onto a paved area in front of the house.

To the front is a tarmacked parking area, and a double garage. The landscaped gardens are to the front of the house, bordered to the south and west by woodland, through which a path leads to the Todrig Burn.

The workings of the former mill can still be seen at the top of the burn, including the former mill lade and sluice gate which, when operating, form a lovely woodland waterfall.

1 Dykemill is a delightful and well appointed home. It will appeal to anyone looking for a rural lifestyle in an extremely accessible location.

Offers over £320,000 are being sought for No 1 Dykemill.
