Vivien Wright of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said:
Gateside Farm represents an excellent opportunity and we expect considerable interest from a wide range of buyers. The house itself has been modernized and refurbished to the highest standard, including three lovely reception rooms, an impressive master bedroom suite and a premium kitchen.
The two self-contained apartments would be ideal for extended family members or could be let, if desired. There is a landscaped enclosed garden to the front of the house, over 20 acres of grazing land and the owners have created a purpose-built riding arena as well as a spacious gym in one of the outbuildings. Gateside Farm is positioned in a tranquil rural setting and enjoys lovely views over the surrounding Ayrshire countryside. The flexibility offered by the property is second to none.
The accommodation in the main house extends to over 5,400 square feet and includes: kitchen, dining room, sitting room, living room, five bedrooms (one en-suite), bathroom and shower room. The two apartments each have their own kitchen, sitting room, shower room or bathroom and two bedrooms. One of the apartments also has a conservatory and one has a study area. Either of these could be let on a residential or short-term basis, as they are self-contained, with their own access.
The former farm buildings are all in good order and include 15 brick-built stables, a large secure workshop, gym, hayshed and other stores. There is a riding arena and about 23 acres of good grazing land divided into convenient paddocks.
The south facing gardens sit to the front of the house with colourful plants and areas of lawn all sheltered by mature beech hedging. To complete the beautiful gardens is a decked area, perfect to enjoy al fresco dining.
The land at Gateside Farm extends to approximately 23.45 acres and is principally classified as Grade 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute with the fields all benefiting from a southerly aspect.
The nearest village Galston (2 miles) has local shopping including a superstore. Kilmarnock (6 miles away) offers a wider range of facilities including a retail park and cinema whilst Glasgow is about 22 miles distant.
Gateside Farm is on the market through Galbraith for offers over £800,000.
