[UKPRwire, Mon Nov 16 2009] The Ayr office of independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith is offering for sale a well appointed country house in Ayrshire with attractive gardens and a large enclosed paddock.

Carston House is a superb refurbished and extended country house with grazing land in a secluded and attractive location lying close to the village of Drongan, approximately 8 miles from Ayr.

The property benefits from excellent views over the surrounding countryside and is in a convenient location for easy access to Ayr, Glasgow and beyond via the newly improved A77 and M77.

From Carston House, Glasgow city centre can be reached in approximately 50 minutes. In addition, there is a regular train service from Ayr to Glasgow, and Glasgow Prestwick Airport is only about a 20 minute drive away, offering regular domestic and international flights.

Carston House, which is believed to have originally been constructed around 1850, offers substantial family accommodation over two storeys comprising a large well-appointed kitchen/dining room, lounge, utility room, shower room, office/bedroom 5, bedroom 4 and impressive hall on the ground floor, and a spacious upper hall, 3 bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor.

The property is in excellent order throughout and has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. A new kitchen has been installed in the last year. The property benefits from oil fired central heating and double glazing.

Adjacent to the house is a large garage, a small outhouse with fenced storage area, and a substantial glasshouse which extends to approximately 100 x 40. The grazing land extends to approximately 1.5 acres and sits adjacent to the house.

The garden is an excellent feature of the property with a fully enclosed and secluded landscaped sun trap garden to the rear of the property with a lawn, gravelled area, hedges and shrubs, gate with access to the paddock, and an extensive lawn to the front of the house which has been planted with a range of young trees, shrubs and hedges.

There is also a tarred drive and extensive gravelled sweep with spacious parking area for several cars. In addition, and adjacent to the house, there is a large glasshouse (approximately 100 x 40) with power, light and water and an uncovered gravelled working area. The glasshouse is of galvanised aluminium construction with dwarf block walls and hardcore floor.

There is also a detached garage (195 x 187) and a useful small brick outhouse with slate roof (127 x 97).

There is a paddock adjacent to the property of approximately 1.5 acres.

Carston House is a charming Country House offering substantial family accommodation in a secluded yet highly accessible location.
