CKD Galbraith market Victorian home set within mature private grounds

From: Fame Publicity Services
Published: Sat May 29 2010

Scotland’s leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is marketing a charming Victorian House with 3.3 acres occupying a peaceful private setting with attractive wooded garden grounds in the popular town of Beith, North Ayrshire.

The Mount was constructed in the late 1800s for a wealthy local family. The property is capable of providing extremely flexible and comfortable family living accommodation with well lit spacious reception rooms including original cornicing and many fine features. On two storeys, the house has 5 reception rooms, kitchen, cloakroom, shower room, utility area and pantry on the ground floor, with 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

Outside, the charming wooded grounds are most attractive and provide considerable privacy and seclusion. There is an unusual detached stable block with loft which could be used as a workshop and garage with conversion potential. A further acre of land has potential for residential development subject to necessary planning being obtained.

From the mid 1800s until the 1980’s Beith had the honour of being the most important furniture manufacturing town in Scotland with a reputation for high quality furniture making. The town was also once served by two railway stations: Beith North, commonly referred to as the "Low station" and Beith Town.

With it’s close proximity to both Glasgow Airport and the City Centre, The Mount is probably one of the "hidden gems" of Beith, and it is rare for such a property to come on the market.

Pricing is as follows:

Lot 1 House, Stable Block and 2.3 acres: Offers Over £380,000
Lot 2 Development Land (about 1 acre): Offers Over £145,000
As a Whole: Offers Over £525,000

For sale as a Whole or in 2 lots.
