* 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.

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. "
