EAST Black Byres Farm is an at­trac­tive farm­house in five acres, two miles from Fen­wick in Ayr­shire. This is a sub­stan­tial home with ac­com­mo­da­tion ex­tend­ing to al­most 6,000sq ft as well as an at­tached two bed­roomed cot­tage and a stable block.

Built in 1862, the elon­gated three­sided farm­house in­te­rior fea­tures the pre­dictable – red Aga in the 29ft fam­ily din­ing kitchen, rus­tic stone fire­place wall and a ter­ra­cotta-tiled con­ser­va­tory – and the un­ex­pected, namely a games room, a guest/teenager’s apart­ment with sit­ting room with French doors to the court­yard, wet room-style shower room with sauna, and a spi­ral stair­case to a bed­room. There is a draw­ing room, study, sit­ting room, shower room, two dou­ble bed­rooms, util­ity and cloak­room.

The house has two stair­cases in ad­di­tion to the spi­ral stair­case in the guest apart­ment, lead­ing to five fur­ther dou­ble bed­rooms – three par­tic­u­larly size­able rooms over 20ft in length with re­cessed dormer win­dows and French doors to Juliet-style bal­conies, while one of the bed­rooms also has a dress­ing room large enough to be an­other bed­room – fam­ily bath­room with free­stand­ing roll-top bath and sep­a­rate shower.

Out­side, the main gar­den has a decked ter­race and or­na­men­tal pond in ad­di­tion to lawns, while a tar­mac court­yard pro­vides park­ing for nu­mer­ous ve­hi­cles. An ad­join­ing 17-acre field is also avail­able for sale by sep­a­rate ne­go­ti­a­tion if re­quired. Of­fers over £675,000 are in­vited by Ni­col Es­tate Agents.
