South Bank is a most attractive farm with stone-built farmhouse, well maintained gardens, traditional courtyard steading and a mixture of good quality grazing land and hill ground. South Bank is currently run as a productive sheep farm and in the past the present owners successfully ran it as farm park with sheep dog trials as an attraction. There is a bothy and former art studio adjoining the outbuildings. Given its close
proximity to the road it was ideally located for passing trade. Extends to approximately 121.55 ha (300 acres).
Lot 1 – House, Steading and approximately 7acres
Extremely well situated the farmhouse enjoys uninterrupted sea views towards Ailsa Craig and the Ayrshire coast. South Bank farmhouse is stone built and well presented with well-proportioned rooms. It has a good sized dining kitchen with useful utility room off, living room with log burning stove, study, bathroom and conservatory overlooking the gardens towards the sea . At upper floor level there are three bedrooms,
boxroom and w.c. The steading lies at the rear of the house forming a sheltered courtyard. It comprises a bothy which has its own front and rear entrance with kitchen, separate living area and shower room with separate w.c.. This
could have potential to provide possible rental income subject to appropriate consents. There is a former studio/gallery which leads to large workshop and a variety of sheds for multi-purpose use including garage, log store and tool shed. To the side of the steading is sheep handling pens.
