Tower Farm is an attractive traditional farmhouse in a pleasant rural situation south of Dalry, North Ayrshire. It has fine views over open countryside and is well located for easy access to Glasgow and Ayr. Glasgow (about 40 minutes) is easily reached via the A737 and both Kilwinning (4 miles) and Dalry (3 miles) have a regular train service to Glasgow. Both Prestwick and Glasgow Airports are within easy distance and are 17 miles and 20 miles away respectively. The towns of Dalry, Saltcoats, Kilwinning and Irvine provide useful local amenities including a variety of shops and leisure facilities. There are good state schools available locally and private schooling at Wellington in Ayr and St Columba's in Kilmacolm.

Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including Royal Troon, Western Gailes, Irvine and an 18 hole course is available at West Kilbride Golf Club. There is a popular Racecourse in Ayr and excellent yachting facilities at the Marinas at Largs, Ardrossan and Troon. Fishing is available locally at Kilbirnie Loch, by Glengarnock which is stocked with rainbow and brown trout and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are a short drive away. For outdoor nature enthusiasts there are country parks at Castle Semple Loch, Lochwinnoch and Eglinton Country Park, Irvine. The scenic west coast is around 4 miles from Tower Farm and Largs has everything you would expect from a Scottish seaside resort, including a Victorian promenade, ice cream parlours and there are regular ferry crossings to the isle of Cumbrae which is just a mile offshore. The Isle of Arran, one of Scotland's most southerly islands with beautiful coastlines is just a short ferry crossing from Ardrossan.

Tower Farm is a substantial farmhouse built on two storeys of stone and slate, with adjoining outbuildings, sheds and a bothy. It has accommodation on two floors including a sitting room, living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, bedroom with ensuite shower room on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. The farmhouse requires considerable upgrading and refurbishment.

The adjoining buildings have great potential for extending the existing house or as further separate dwellings subject to planning permission for conversion being obtained.
