A striking refurbished farmhouse set in around 5 acres


In the undulating, unspoilt landscape of rural Ayrshire, Braehead Farm is well situated for easy access to Glasgow which is approximately 21 miles away. The attractive conservation village of Dunlop is also close by providing excellent local facilities including a primary school and a newly rebuilt mainline railway station with an express service to Glasgow. Glasgow and Prestwick Airports are approximately 25 minutes drive away with both regular domestic and International flights. Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including Turnberry and The Royal Troon. There are excellent yachting facilities at the marinas in Troon, Largs, Ardrossan and Inverkip. Ayr's popular racecourse hosts the Scottish Grand National.


Braehead Farmhouse is a stunning, restored Listed farmhouse which has been rebuilt by the current owners to a particularly high standard. It occupies a picturesque position overlooking farmland, and the property is itself surrounded by approximately 5 acres of mature, mainly lawned gardens with a wildlife pond. There are beautiful open aspects to the rear of the house over the rolling Ayrshire countryside. In its restoration, considerable sensitivity and effort has been put in combining contemporary elements with the original 19th century features to create an exceptionally comfortable and surprisingly spacious farmhouse with efficient underfloor heating, double glazing and traditional sash windows. The accommodation on the ground floor begins with a bright reception hallway with underfloor heating which leads into the beautiful, open plan kitchen/sitting room which has a double height ceiling with Velux windows, a free standing wood burning stove, and a wide range of modern cabinets in the kitchen area. Off the kitchen there is a dining room / living room with a log burner set into an original fireplace. There is a good sized utility room off the kitchen with additional base and wall mounted units. Off the open plan kitchen/sitting room is a mezzanine level room, currently used as a study, reached by a steel spiral staircase. There is also a cloakroom/toilet on the ground floor. To the west side of Braehead Farm on the ground floor there is the master bedroom with double glazed windows to the front and rear with a large dressing room off. There is an additional double sized bedroom with barrel vault ceiling and the family bathroom is a magnificent four piece suite which includes a central bath, wet room style open shower and exposed stone fragments on the walls. The first floor accommodation comprises two well proportioned double sized bedrooms with beautiful countryside views.

The extensive gardens do much to complement Braehead Farm; they are imaginatively laid out and well maintained, with a wildlife pond, terraced areas, fire pit and lawns, with lovely open aspects to the back of the house. There is a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs including chestnut, silver birch, paper birch and copper beech. There is an additional paddock to the rear of the property.

Within the grounds of Braehead Farm is a former stone built barn with pitched slated roof which has been externally refurbished and internally there is power and light. The barn is currently used as a large workshop/storage area.

Square Footage: 2,546 sq ft
