This spacious modern detached house is located on a working sheep farm down a quiet country lane with stunning views over open countryside to the Island of Arran. The small village of Kilmaurs is a short walk and has shops and a restaurant.
Ayrshire offers unspoilt scenery and a varying coastline with villages, sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore while inland there are gardens and castles to visit, along with activities such as riding and racing. For the keen golfer, there is also an excellent choice of courses in the area. Culzean Castle (National Trust) and Dumfries House are one of the most popular days out.
The seaside towns of Ayr, Prestwick and Troon are all close by with beautiful sandy beaches and stunning views across the sea. Day trips can be taken to Arran and Cumbrae and are well worth the effort.
