Compact Ayrshire farm boasts superb equestrian facilities

Just launched to the market last week is Bennan’s Farm, a traditional farmhouse with courtyard and equestrian facilities on 21.4ac. The property is located at Straiton, South Ayrshire, Scotland.

Its idyllic position in the picturesque Girvan Valley provides spectacular scenery, as well as being located around 30 minutes from the town of Ayr.

The village provides a variety of amenities such as schools; shops; cafes; and a popular pub, The Kirkmichael Arms.

In terms of accessibility, there are regular trains to Glasgow and beyond; 21 miles away is Prestwick Airport. The A/M77 lies close and is accessible to other towns and villages.

Bennan farmhouse

The farmhouse is a two-storey, stone building and, according to the estate agents, Galbraith, it has been significantly improved and upgraded by the current owners.

The residence contains: An entrance hall; a living room; a large kitchen/dining room; a games room; a utility room; five bedrooms; and a family bathroom.

The house benefits from oil-fired central heating and double glazing. Outside is a superb traditional courtyard.

The facilities

There are a variety of useful outbuildings, ideal for equestrian use. Included is a wood store and an additional store within the courtyard.

There is also a 10-block stable area, which is built of stone and slate with concrete floors. Adjoining this is a 4-stall piggery.

Lastly, is a workshop and a general purpose building.

The grazing land comprises 20ac, split into two large enclosures. The area is adjacent to the meandering Water of Girvan, with access to water. The land also provides field shelter.

There is good road accessibility, as a footpath leads from Straiton village, over Bennan Bridge, and travels across the north edge of the field to the Bennan road.

There is a public footpath across the northwest field from the footbridge to the road and along the road.

Additional information

The property provides development potential, subject to planning permission. The guide price is £465,000.
