Braefoot is a charming detached cottage built around 1860, privately situated in enclosed grounds and gardens set back from the public road. It is in the picturesque conservation village of Straiton in South Ayrshire. Glasgow City Centre can be reached in a little over an hour's drive. There is a regular train service to Ayr, Glasgow and beyond from the railway station in Maybole (about 8 miles) and a bus service from the village (every 90 minutes) to Maybole and Ayr. Glasgow Prestwick Airport is only 18 miles away offering regular flights to mainland Europe. The pretty village of Straiton offers a good range of local amenities including a shop, post office, public house, café, an excellent primary school and a well attended Church of Scotland, whilst Maybole offers a wide range of local shops and secondary schooling. The county town of Ayr (14 miles) provides a wider range of facilities including excellent shopping, private schooling, an extensive choice of restaurants and many sports and leisure facilities.

Nestled in the Girvan Valley, Straiton is a popular destination for those seeking outdoor pursuits. The Bennan Hill Walk at Straiton has lovely views to Ben Lomond, Arran and Ailsa Craig, and there are many country walks and excellent cycling paths in the nearby Galloway Forest. For horse riding the peaceful country lanes around Straiton provide quiet off road hacking in stunning upland landscapes. There is quality shooting available on some of the surrounding estates. Brown trout and river fishing is available close by at Loch Bradan. There are many golf courses including Royal Troon and Turnberry and Maybole has a delightful 9 hole town course (8 miles).

Braefoot is a single storey stone built cottage under a slate roof. The property has been tastefully and sympathetically refurbished and comprises front hall with storage cupboard, living/dining room with triple aspect windows, picture rail and wood burning stove set in a brick surround with timber mantle. The kitchen has floor and wall mounted units, gas hob, electric oven, extractor fan and washing machine. There are two double bedrooms and shower room with tiled flooring, a Triton shower, wash hand basin, wc and heated towel rail. A pleasant sun room overlooks the rear garden.

The mature gardens to the front and rear are well stock with a variety of trees and shrubs and have well tended lawns. There is a gravel drive surrounding the cottage with parking for several cars both at the front and rear of the cottage. There is a timber garden shed with power and light.
