Stun­ning home is pas­toral per­fec­tion

Ayrshire Post - - PROPERTY - Stephen Hous­ton

While a salmon river doesn’t quite run through it, it does flow quickly past at the bot­tom of the gar­den.

The Duisk is the big­gest trib­u­tary of the St­in­char, where some big beauties are be­ing hooked this sea­son.

The ad­dress of 1 Main Street, Bar­rhill doesn’t quite give you a clue to the mag­nif­i­cence of this set­ting.

A five dou­ble bed roomed villa sits in the mid­dle of a 2.5 acre spread and is next door to the for­mer church, of which it was once manse.

The home has been given the name “De­seret” which is cer­tainly not Church of Scot­land ter­ri­tory.

Mor­mon set­tlers in Utah ap­plied for state­hood in 1849 un­der the name De­seret, a word from the sa­cred Book of Mor­mon mean­ing “hon­ey­bee” and sig­ni­fy­ing in­dus­try.

The house is set far back from the road, down a pri­vate drive, right on the parochial fringe of the vil­lage.

And, of course, liv­ing in the wilder parts of South Ayr­shire means you get in­cred­i­ble value for money.

Agents Don­ald Ross are seek­ing of­fers above £ 270,000, the price of a de­cent Ayr bun­ga­low.

In­side there are some nice in­te­rior de­sign fea­tures, but the tra­di­tional feel of the old manse re­mains.

The agents re­veal: “The ven­dors have metic­u­lously up­graded the prop­erty to an ex­cep­tional stan­dard with its taste­ful in­te­rior, creat­ing a won­der­ful blend of con­tem­po­rary and tra­di­tional fea­tures.

“The prop­erty is ap­proached via a pri­vate en­trance drive­way to a grav­elled sweep at the front and side of the house.”

The for­mal lounge has a log burner and the din­ing room has pa­tio doors to the back, with lovely views over the grounds.

The din­ing room ap­pears vast, and at 15ft 3ins by 22ft 3ins it is.

The kitchen is off the din­ing room and is packed with mod­ern units.

The five bed­rooms are all up­stairs, with the mas­ter ben­e­fit­ing from en- suite bath­room and com­mand­ing fine views over the gar­dens and sur­round­ing coun­try­side.

The gar­dens are more nat­u­ral and wild, rather than for­mal and ma­ture shrubs and trees are found through­out.

If you are in­ter­ested in view­ing this stun­ning prop­erty and its sur­rounds, please call Don­ald Ross on Ayr 288222.

Of­fers in ex­cess of £ 270,000 are be­ing sought.
