Property Description

Culdoch Cottage occupies an enviable and generous plot only a mile from the amenities of the village of Straiton, with a stunning rural setting that looks out over rolling Ayrshire countryside. This picturesque country cottage has been extended to create a substantial family home, with three large bedrooms and ample modern living spaces that are all on-the-level. The property is surrounded by a mixture of manicured and decorative garden grounds and mature wooded areas that continue into more wild and open countryside leading up the hill to a secluded waterfall with a summer house. From several elevated positions within the plot there are incredible views and the rural setting creates an unrivalled amount of privacy. There is also off-road parking, a large outbuilding and potential to add further accommodation on the plot, subject to the normal planning consents.

In more detail, the internal accommodation extends to an entrance hallway, a spacious bay windowed lounge / dining area with a feature fireplace, log burner and patio doors out to the rear, a fitted kitchen with ample wall and base units and patio doors to the side, a master bedroom with a fitted en suite shower room, an inner hallway leading to two further double bedrooms with fireplaces and log burners, a family bathroom suite and stairs leading up to a floored and lined attic, with Velux windows and a separate attic store.

Externally there is off road parking at the side for a number of vehicles and a large stone outbuilding, currently housing the boiler and with a pitched roof for additional storage. There are two separate garden grounds, surrounded by mature woodland and highlighted by decorative pebbles and shrubs. The plot extends beyond the gardens up the hill towards a tranquil waterfall with a hidden summer house and stone open fire. There is an orchard, native hardwoods, a winding burn and stunning views across open countryside from all areas of the plot.

The conservation village of Straiton lies around 12 miles south-east of Ayr on the River Girvan. It is a beautiful area in which to reside, being surrounded by farmland, hills and valleys and near the Galloway Forest. Local attractions include Blairquhan Castle, Loch Bradan, Glen Trool, Culzean Castle and the seacoast. The village has a community shop, a part-time cafe, a church and primary school, as well as a bus service to Maybole and Ayr.

From Ayr proceed south of the A77 passing through Minishant and turning left at the signpost for Straiton. Follow this road through Kirkmichael and continue on to Straiton. Continue through the village, past the school and two further cottages, and Culdoch Cottage can be found on the left-hand side.
