Externally, the land extends to about 4.1 acres (1.65 hectares) and includes a range of useful modern and traditional farm
Downan Farmhouse has a northwesterly aspect and spectacular views over the scenic Ayrshire coast towards Ailsa Craig, Arran, the Mull of Kintyre and even Ireland on a clear day. The house is a two storey (full height) dwelling of traditional stone construction with a slate roof; the accommodation is arranged over two floors as shown on the accompanying floorplans.
The front door opens into a small vestibule which in turn accesses the ground floor hall. Situated at the front of the house, the northwestern facing living room and dining room benefit from coastal views, with the living room also having a large Clearview wood burning stove. A good sized study also has an open fireplace and could be utilised as a television room/snug.
The farmhouse kitchen is located towards the rear of the house with fitted units, an integrated electric cooker and a small Rayburn utilised principally for domestic hot water. There is a spacious utility room with additional storage units and a sink as well as external access to the rear of the property.
A large modern family bathroom with bath, large shower unit, WC, wash hand basin and vanity unit is located next to the laundry room where the oil fired boiler is also positioned. Upstairs
there are five bedrooms, with bedrooms 4 and 5 requiring some upgrading.
The farmhouse benefits from UPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating (via boiler) and domestic hot water (via oil Rayburn), a private water supply (shared with the neighbouring farm), mains electricity and drainage to a septic tank. Externally there is a large enclosed garden laid to grass with a gravelled driveway and parking area to the front of the house. To the side there is an extensive area of hardstanding with parking.
FARM BUILDINGS AND LAND
Adjacent to the farmhouse there is a small range of former farm buildings, of mixed construction, which complement the grazing
land and provide useful storage space. Please note, additional buildings (to the west of the farmhouse) are available by separate negotiation. In close proximity to the farmhouse there are two enclosed paddocks, extending to 4 acres, ideally suited for grazing horses or other livestock.
