‘Kelpie Cottage’ is beautifully positioned in a tranquil and remote location near the foreshore at the mouth of Sliddery Water. The property is a unique and renovated, three/four-bedroom, stone-built cottage. The property has been upgraded both internally and externally, to create fantastic and flexible accommodation, which only a viewing will qualify. Great emphasis has been placed on the creation of easily managed and free-flowing space on a bright layout. The property sits within a working farm with animals grazing at most times of the year and it is therefore subject to the normal precautions one would anticipate in such a setting! Although there are appended agricultural buildings, these are not included in the sale.
The remainder of the first floor offers thoughtfully-planned accommodation. The two double bedrooms both have space for additional free-standing furniture and offer fantastic countryside and sea views to the front.
For additional comfort, the property benefits from (oil-fired central heating) and part double glazing. Drainage is to a private septic tank.
To the front of the property is an enclosed garden with stone wall and gate leading to the adjacent fields. The rear garden has a timber shed and offers off-road parking. The property sits amidst grazing land through which there is access to the river and the foreshore.

A door opens from here into the welcoming hallway, with the main set of stairs leading to the first floor. Immediately impressive lounge, which has a range of furniture configurations and a picture window to the front aspect flooding the room with natural light and offering views of Ailsa Craig.
