A wonderful detached cottage in a tranquil setting with stunning views over the rolling countryside.
Stable House is a beautiful 1 ½ storey cottage with self contained annexe which sits within the desirable hamlet of Barkip, between the towns of Dalry and Beith, North Ayrshire. The fantastic plot is approximately half an acre and has stunning views from all aspects over the rolling countryside.
Originally built in the 1800s and cherished by the current owner for nearly 30 years, Stable House offer extremely versatile living space.
The main accommodation is set over one floor with a mezzanine above the main living room and is designed to take advantage of the surrounding views and countryside. An entrance porch leads to the main hallway, off which is the bright and airy L shaped garden room with reclaimed Maplewood flooring. From here French doors open into the contemporary drawing room which has splendid oak flooring, floor to ceiling red brick fireplace with wood burning stove and hemlock turned staircase leading up to a bedroom and home office on the mezzanine level. Also located off the main hallway is a characterful kitchen with a range of storage options and a black AGA . Two further spacious bedrooms include the master which benefits from built in storage and a stylish en suite bathroom and finally a shower room completes the main body of the house.
The connected annexe is a fantastic addition to the property and is currently being used as a short term rental, offering an excellent lifestyle business opportunity. The annexe consists of an open plan living room/ kitchen, two double bedrooms and separate shower room. The annexe benefits from its own private access but can also be entered from the hallway of the main house giving the option to continue with short term rental or incorporate this into the main accommodation taking the total property to approximately 2290 square feet.
There is an adjoining gym which houses the subsidised biomass boiler and solar power converters and, further adding to the energy efficiency of the property, there is double glazing throughout.
Within the gardens, a hot tub is surrounded by expanses of lawn, mature trees and shrubs, with uninterrupted views of the lush countryside. The courtyard has parking for multiple cars and is a versatile and functional space.
