The Old Byres is located at High McGowanston Farm, Turnberry, South Ayrshire.  Along the coast from the property is the pretty coastal village of Maidens which has a lovely long sandy beach and a very well-regarded restaurant. The harbour at Maidens was originally built for fishing but is mainly used by those who sail for pleasure.

The three-bedroom property benefits from an air source heat pump and solar panels making it highly energy efficient with low running costs. 

Included in the sale is an additional and adjoining byre which comes with planning permission to convert into additional accommodation, either to expand the existing property, use as an annex or establish a holiday let, subject to all necessary consents.

The accommodation, all on one level, comprises a large dining kitchen fitted with bespoke handmade wooden cabinets and a Rangemaster. Beautiful oak flooring extends from the kitchen to both the living room and the garden room. With dual aspect windows, a wood burning stove and painted original stone wall, the living room is a particularly appealing and cosy room.  The garden room has full height sliding doors fitted with electric blinds and a sky light window allowing light to flood the room whist enjoying stunning views over the garden and countryside beyond. 

Fiona Fulton, handling the sale for Galbraith, said: “This byre conversion has been carried out to the highest standard and presents a beautiful house in a picturesque setting. Being highly energy efficient and offering a development opportunity with the adjoining byre project, this is a very exciting prospect for those seeking their own rural idyll with added potential to create an income, if desired.”

The mature gardens at The Old Byre have a variety of trees including Alder, Canadian Maple, Picea Pungens, Fir, Apple and Victoria Plum along with mixed hedging and beautiful colours when the Rosa Rugosa and Forsythia are in bloom. There is a small, decked area from which to enjoy al fresco dining whilst taking in the stunning view towards the Ailsa Craig.

Maybole is eight miles distant and has a selection of small convenience shops, primary and secondary schools. Ayrshire is a fantastic location for those enjoying the outdoors, renowned for its excellent golf courses as well as the Ayr racecourse, host to the Scottish Grand National. For sailing enthusiasts, Scotland’s most testing waters lie around the Ayrshire coast with marinas in Troon, Largs and Inverkip.
