Delightful small Ayrshire estate

Barskaig is a perfectly formed small Scottish estate with a handsome Georgian house dating back to 1802 at its heart. The property, alongside the stables and outbuildings, has been completely refurbished and now provides a stunning country house in a beautiful setting.

The property offers spacious reception rooms including a large drawing room with log-burner, a cosy snug, and a more formal dining room, while the kitchen is well equipped for more informal dining.

Upstairs the first floor has three bedrooms including the master suite and a family bathroom, while bedrooms four and five are on the second floor, alongside a shower room.

Outside the gardens consist of landscaped parkland with over 450 trees with the stable block located off the driveway, offering three stables plus a tack room, feed store and a hay store. Other outbuildings include an outhouse and three hen houses, plus a barn and a summer house.

The gardens and grounds, including paddocks, extend to around 11 acres, with one paddock to the front of the house and three to the rear. An area to the western boundary of the paddocks is given over to woodland which leads down to the banks of the River Stinchar. Included in the sale is about 750 yards of the east bank of the river, which is predominantly a spate river.

The house is located in the pretty Ayrshire village of Barr. There are marinas and chandlery services at Troon, Ardrossan and Largs. Golf is equally well catered for – the course, hotel and spa at Turnberry is just 12 miles.

The guide price is £695,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 0141 225 3883 or visit
