4 bed house with land over one acre for sale in Arran

Balegra Farmhouse, Bennan, Shannochie, KA27 8SH
Total Floor Area 160m²
Energy Rating E

A traditional four/five-bedroom farmhouse with outbuildings (with potential to develop – STPP) and land extending to approximately ten acres, conveniently positioned in the friendly farming community of Shannochie. Displaying a stunning frontage, the farmhouse offers flexible accommodation, formed over a two-storey layout, on a plot of around ten acres. In essence, the front of the property belies the spacious accommodation internally. Although the farm is very much a traditional home, it has a comfortable feel and benefits from outstanding views towards the Firth of Clyde and Ailsa Craig. There is a spacious courtyard, which is surrounded on two sides by substantial agricultural buildings and to the front by the farmhouse and appended buildings. It would most certainly suit those with an equestrian interest or as an ideal base for a small-holding. The staircase rises to first floor level, revealing three, well-proportioned bedrooms. Two of these offer stunning views into the distance and all have storage facilities. All rooms on this level have use of a handy shower-room. Access to the loft space can be gained from the landing. The very real possibility exists that this area could be converted or extended into the byre for additional living accommodation (STPP) and add immediate value to this family home. Services

  • Additional Info

    The traditional building has been well maintained, both internally and externally, to create versatile accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. The flexible interior offers sophisticated living space, which is inherent with a home of this age and character. Being located at the south end of the island, the surrounding fields benefit from the softer climate and the property enjoys spectacular views towards adjacent farms and the sea beyond to the south and east. Most of the fields are fenced and many have hedging and some stone walls. Hard standing for a static caravan (with services) can also be found within the grounds. The farmhouse gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a wide variety of plants and trees to provide seasonal colour and benefit from tremendous views into the distance, which can be enjoyed from a number of vantage points. The feature patio is the perfect spot for al-fresco dining and has been used for this purpose on many an occasion. There is ample parking available within the courtyard. The subjects are entered via a bright, welcoming reception hallway, with a feature staircase off to the upper landing. Access can be gained to the family bathroom from here. Immediately impressive lounge, with picture windows to the front and rear aspect, flooding the room with natural light and providing stunning views. The feature fireplace, with multi-fuel stove, is the key focal point of this room. Access can be gained from here into the kitchen/diner, which has been fitted to include a good range of oak fronted floor and wall mounted units with a striking worktop, providing a fashionable and efficient workspace. It further benefits from a feature, oil-fired Rayburn cooker, along with an integrated oven, hob, extractor and dishwasher. There is further space for a compact fridge and freezer. There is adequate room for a table and chairs for more informal dining with friends and family and this zone is certain to become the very ‘heart’ of the home. Patio doors open from here onto the raised patio, which enjoys views over the gardens and towards the Firth of Clyde and Ailsa Craig. A handy utility room (with quarry tiled floor) is also located off the kitchen and is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has space for an upright fridge freezer. The useful boot room is located off the utility room and offers plenty of invaluable storage facilities and has a personal door opening into the courtyard and one into the byre. This i
