* NEW to Market - Available to View Soon * “ The CHASE ”, By Knockentiber… A Charming Cottage Style Detached Bungalow enjoying a wonderful countryside setting. This much loved home was purchased 33 years ago by the current owners, fulfilling their desire for an equestrian property which would allow them to be “hands-on” with their horses. Initially purchased with its large garden plus circa 2 acres, the owners' purchased a further circa 2 acres to provide an ideal setting for their horses to graze adjacent to their home whilst being conveniently stabled within their own property grounds.
The property is approached by a private (good quality surface) tarmacadam road shared with 2 adjoining owners. Private gated access leads into the rear of the property with hardstanding parking, the house and the outbuildings (Stables/Office/Garage/Tack-room) formed on L-shape whilst the front/side of the property overlooks open countryside including the fields owned by the Sellers. Services include mains power & water, a private septic tank and lpg (gas) heating. An undeveloped attic provides excellent additional storage. Both the paddock/grazing fields have independent gated access.
The current owners had the property professionally extended in 2013 now providing flexible 5 Main Apartment Accommodation which is all on-the-level, normally 2 public/3 bedrooms however it could be utilised as 1 public/4 bedrooms if required, noting that there are 2 bathrooms. Internal viewing reveals an attractively presented home with well proportioned rooms complemented by a quality specification reflecting the owners' attention to detail.
A main door access is provided to the front of the property albeit the rear porch entrance from the courtyard is the natural entrance. In particular comprising, separate entrance porch opening onto a reception hall area which in-turn forms part of the well appointed dining/kitchen (all situated to the rear), a central inner hallway leads to the main accommodation – the front right hand side features a most appealing lounge enjoying picturesque views, directly behind a 2nd public room (family room) which could be an alternative 4th bedroom whilst on the left hand side, the “master” bedroom (No 1) enjoys similar views as the lounge, directly behind is bedroom No 2, a fabulous “luxury” larger style bathroom with very stylish 4 piece suite/fitments functions as the main bathroom with a useful 2nd/guest bathroom adjacent, finally to the rear a flexible room – the 3rd bedroom, currently a tv/living room.
As stated the fields are immediately adjacent to the front of the property, set on an L-shape with gated access from within the property itself or an additional “field gate” on an external road leading to the property. The outbuildings are joined “back to back” with the pitched roof section overlooking the courtyard divided into 3 sections - an informal office (with small wc – requires attention), a central garage and a separate tack room …whilst the flat roofed building adjoining the rear has flexible stabling for 3 – 4 horses/ponies (currently not in use, serving as a secure storage area). The neatly presented private gardens are formed on a u-shape, an inviting area in which to potter or relax outdoors and keep an eye on any four legged friends grazing in the fields.
The property sits just off a semi-rural road on the outskirts of Knockentiber/Crosshouse, Kilmarnock with mixed style country style properties dotted around. To discuss your interest in this particular property please contact Graeme Lumsden, our Director/Valuer, who is handling this particular sale – 01292 283606.

Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS comments…
“ The CHASE was my clients' Dream Home, fulfilling their longing for an equestrian property which would be a comfortable/practical retreat for them and their much loved horses. It is a reluctant sale however as my clients no longer have horses it seems right to move on and let someone else fulfil their dream.
I am lucky that after 37 years in the property industry I still enjoy being part of the home moving process helping Sellers & Buyers along their property journey. Every so often I market a Dream Home that stirs my property soul, one which I would happily buy and look forward to pottering or relaxing. If I purchased The CHASE the stables would be full of motorbikes to keep me occupied, and it is fair to say that it will be of wider appeal than just the equestrian Buyer.
So, if you are genuinely looking to move and want a Special Home, get in touch and we can have a chat. "

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * A wonderful opportunity for those yearning to immerse themselves in “Country Living”, this Charming Detached Cottage Style Bungalow enjoys a truly picturesque setting with countryside unfolding in all directions. “Little Camlarg” was originally the site of the former Shepherd’s Cottage for Craigengillan Estate, replaced circa 1970’s with the Cottage Style Bungalow that awaits its lucky new owner.
Entering through its private driveway the Cottage nestles almost magically with a babbling burn curving around the outer edges of its delightful partially wooded main gardens, a bridge beckoning one to cross by vehicle or foot …prepare to utter the word… “Wow” …because it is. Beyond the cottage and main garden (circa 2 acres), an additional circa 14 acres of rough grazing/land invites one to ponder their options or simply enjoy the additional space/extended views that it provides, noting that a separate/private access is also available to the additional land (at the far end, off the main road).
Little Camlarg is approx' 1 mile east on the B741 from Dalmellington Village which is part of the renowned “Dark Sky Park” which provides a dazzling starscape on clear nights that town/city dwellers never experience. Turn right (signposted) into the shared driveway, pass a Detached Bungalow at driveway entrance), travel a short distance to be met by a farm gate through which one enters the property.
The current owners have upgraded the property during their period of ownership and it is fair to say that they are very reluctant sellers, only moving to accommodate the needs of their daughter.
The comfortable accommodation which enjoys panoramic views comprises, reception hall, spacious lounge with patio doors, open-plan kitchen adjacent, 3 bedrooms and a modern bathroom. The specification includes both central heating (renewed & powered from the multi-fuel fire, plus back-up immersion heater) & double glazing. EPC – D. There is a private septic tank within the boundaries of the property (renewed), mains water & electricity are provided. There is an abundance of parking space within the garden grounds.

“ Having marketed & sold a myriad of properties over my 35 Years as an estate agent there is a category of property which one will never see professionally mentioned
…these are properties that make most potential buyers utter the word – Wow!
…whether it is the super luxury spec’, huge size, amazing location, spectacular views etc’
…there are also the subtle properties where the location just makes you go …Wow
Little Camlarg… simply Wow! What a lucky buyer will surely say, especially the day they arrive with the keys proudly in their hands, because they bought it! “

* NEW to Market - Available to View * Enjoying favoured locale, this ever popular stone fronted Detached Bungalow will be of immense interest to clients seeking a much larger garden, which in this case is concealed to the rear. A comfortable home for over 30 years to its current owners, the splendid gardens can easily accommodate a range of interests, from families seeking safe outdoor space, the keen gardener wishing to expand their floral artistry or add a productive veg/fruit area, those yearning to add a summer house/workshop will welcome the extra space. Clearly the opportunity also exists to extend the property further (subject to the required planning permission etc) whilst not impacting such a large garden area …so many ideas to consider.
Conveniently positioned for Ayr Town Centre, local amenities including shopping & public transport whilst local schools are also easily accessible. A short journey takes one to the A77 which provides links north & south.
The property features on-the-level accommodation which has been extended already to the rear whilst the attic area features floored/lined additional storage. In particular comprising, entrance vestibule onto the reception hall, lounge to the front which could be used as a 3rd bedroom if required, extended family/dining room privately situated to the rear with pleasing garden views/access via patio doors, centrally positioned “Galley” style kitchen with breakfasting room beyond and further utility storage thereafter, 2 bedrooms (to the front & rear respectively – Nos 1 & 2) with bedroom No1 featuring a small en-suite. What is now a useful study had been the original bathroom however the current owners elected to create a much larger bathroom by taking some space from the rear family/dining room.
The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC – D. Neatly maintained private gardens are located to the front & rear, noting the very substantial rear gardens. A private driveway provides off-street parking, this leading to the rear with a paved vehicular turning space available. On-street parking is also available.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“ After 35 years working in the property industry across Scotland, Bungalows have remained a firm favourite for homebuyers …today it’s not just retired/semi retired buyers that want a bungalow as their final home, younger buyers are switching away from tightly packed modern homes, appreciating the flexibility of a bungalow and the opportunities that are often available to extend.
This is an exciting opportunity with its secret garden, one that a New Homes Builder today would almost refuse to allocate to just one house. If they wish… the successful purchasers will have the opportunity to extend their indoor lifestyle outdoors, without running out of space.
One can just imagine what can be created in such a wonderful outdoor space. ”

Situated on Oswald Road surrounded by mixed style homes, convenient for access to the main arterial road running between Ayr & Prestwick or connecting through Heathfield to the A77. On-street parking is available whilst the rear gardens are favourably West facing to make the most of those sunny/brighter days.

In addition, a curtained stairway discretely positioned to the side of the breakfasting kitchen leads to a very useful floored/lined attic storage area with velux window commanding wonderful elevated views. The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC – D.
Both Ayr & Prestwick are well established with mixed main street shopping, restaurants, amenities, whilst the sweeping promenade/seafront is within walking distance or cycle/car journey. Public transport includes bus & train. Prestwick Airport is nearby whilst the property is also convenient for access to the A77. This desirable home is of broad appeal, valued by local buyers, retired/semi-retired client/s, whilst further afield it will likely be of particular interest to Glasgow based buyers or those relocating from South of the Border, seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside ...and a better work/life balance.
This ever popular Bungalow Style home is well worthy of internal viewing to appreciate the charm/proportion of its existing accommodation, plus the real potential afforded by the substantial rear garden – whether to the property itself (noting nearby properties which have been developed – subject to required planning permission etc) …or those keen on gardening, pottering in sheds/workshops …or children who will revel in the wonderful outdoor space.

*NEW to Market - Available to View Now* An excellent opportunity to acquire a continually sought after Semi Detached Bungalow within favoured Prestwick locale. Of broad appeal this neatly presented home has been a comfortable haven for its owners over many decades. The property is competitively priced to reflect that the successful purchaser will no doubt take the opportunity to modernise to their own style/budget. The much larger than expected private gardens are in our opinion a real positive (although overgrown in some areas), previously a combination of an outdoor area to enjoy when the good weather beckons together with the added attraction of a (now disused) productive vegetable area. In addition a private gated driveway provides off-street parking.
Prestwick remains Ayrshire’s “property hotspot”, with its well established mixed main street shopping/restaurants/amenities, whilst the sweeping promenade/seafront is within walking distance or a short cycle/car journey. Bungalow Homes of this style are much in demand and although of broad appeal are valued particularly by retired/semi retired clients & Glasgow based buyers/those relocating from South of the Border, seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside ...and a better work/life balance.
Access is via a main door entrance to the side from the driveway, the entrance vestibule opening onto the reception hall which leads onto the remaining apartments of… spacious lounge with space for small dining table/chairs, separate kitchen (“dated” style), two double bedrooms and bathroom (again “dated” style).
The specification includes both electric heating and double glazing. EPC – E. An undeveloped attic area is available. Mature private gardens wrap around the property, of larger size, of appeal to both the keen gardener or family buyer seeking more space for children to enjoy the outdoors. Parking is available off-street within the gated driveway whilst on-street parking is also available.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“ With 35 years working in the property industry across Scotland, that iconic phrase location, location & location remains one of the key factors about a particular property’s desirability. In addition, post-lockdown has delivered a much increased flow of buyers who yearn for a more relaxed style of living, particularly moving from bustling city life in Glasgow to a coastal location that offers relaxing seafront/beach walks, encouraging one to enjoy the outdoor life.
In my view… this is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a very desirable Semi Detached Bungalow, a home that offers real potential, both internally & externally with its larger private gardens. One can easily imagine how it will be transformed by the successful buyer into a comfortable home from which to enjoy the thriving coastal town of Prestwick. “
