Westfield Farm enjoys a tranquil, rural location overlooking unspoilt countryside and its own beautifully landscaped gardens. The property is located less than a mile outside the village of Tarbolton which has a range of amenities including local convenience stores, a newly constructed primary school, doctors surgery, chemist as well as an award winning bar and restaurant.
The seaside town of Ayr is a ten minute drive away and has a good range of high street shops, department stores, bars and restaurants as well as excellent recreational and professional services. There is a regular train service to Glasgow city centre and Prestwick Airport is just a ten minute drive away.
The surrounding area offers many interesting country walks and is extremely well placed to enjoy all the benefits of a rural yet highly accessible location.
Westfield Farm is an immaculate country house which has been sympathetically and carefully modernised creating a wonderful family home. The property was built in the mid 1800s of sandstone quarried locally and offers generously proportioned accommodation with a blend of traditional character and modern open plan living.
The living space is designed to overlook and open out to the gardens ensuring the rooms are bright and take full advantage of the country views. The reception hall, sitting room and dining room form part of the original farmhouse and have retained many period features including detailed plasterwork, picture rails and woodwork. The more recent addition of a conservatory, accessed from the dining room, provides a relaxing seating area and a door out to the gardens. The master bedroom is on the ground floor and has been cleverly re-designed with a modern en suite shower room and dressing room.
Former outbuildings at the rear were converted in 2005 creating an open plan living room, kitchen and utility room which flow seamlessly from old to new. Original exposed beams and double height ceilings are reminders of the past and a large log burning stove is set within an impressive Inglenook. The kitchen is modern and well planned with an excellent range of fitted units and integrated appliances. A door opens into a pergola which, whilst forming an integral part of the house, is a delightful area for alfresco dining. The utility room is adjacent and there is also a boot room at the rear. Doors lead out from both the kitchen and utility and sky light windows draw in additional light and warmth. A downstairs WC completes the accommodation of the ground floor. There are three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom on the first floor.
GARDENS AND LAND
The gardens and grazing land of Westfield are of particular note and like the house are well planned and carefully maintained. A level lawn is bordered by well stocked borders and sheltered by a number of mature trees. A beautiful flood lit pond provides added interest and is often visited by a variety of wildlife. There are sheltered terraces overlooking the gardens and a west facing pergola. South Ayrshire Planning Department have indicated to the present owners that planning permission may be forthcoming for a further residential dwelling within the gardens between Westfield Farm and Westfield Cottage.
Grazing land of approximately 11 acres surrounds the farmhouse and is well fenced and drained. Access to the land is provided both from the roadside and from the gardens.
