Dalmorton House, By Straiton – An exceptionally rare opportunity for those seeking a Detached Country Home set amidst truly picturesque countryside, approx 2 miles beyond the charming conservation village of Straiton. Dalmorton House originally formed part of the adjacent Dalmorton Farm, being the main house, subsequently sold and now entirely independent from the Farm. This most appealing home retains considerable character and charm reflecting the owners commitment/expenditure, during their period of ownership, to modernise the property whilst retaining its “country” feel. The present owners completed an extension to the main house in 1999 which blends naturally with the original building, with the property now providing superb family accommodation extending to 7 main apartments over two levels, offering considerable flexibility of use.

Dalmorton House is accessed from a single track country road (approx 0.7 miles) just 1.5 miles south of Straiton Village, turning off the B7045/Newton Stewart Road. From the front it commands spectacular elevated views over the surrounding countryside with the property itself set amidst a plot extending to approx 1.5 acres (exact boundaries/dimensions to be confirmed from the title deeds) with a mixture of formal/informal gardens, mature/semi mature trees, duck pond and pony paddock.

The main entrance is by the original half pillared front entrance (with single glazed porch) although the owners mostly use the rear entrance, both having reception halls. On ground floor the accommodation comprises, charming family/sitting room with multi-fuel fire, substantial dining kitchen with “Aga”, an “Artists Studio” with patio doors onto the front gardens – this room easily utilised as a third public room or 5th bedroom if required, utility room (note – present owners use part of the rear reception hall as a utility area also) linking through to an informal study/work room, useful “downstairs” wc, bedroom No 1. The main reception hall has a staircase which passes a “half-level” landing off which is located a “walk-through” dressing area which leads to bedroom No 2 (the “master” bedroom) which has an en-suite, thereafter the main staircase leads to the upper hallway where 2 further bedrooms, the 5 piece family bathroom and an impressive lounge (with oil fuelled fire) are all located.

The specification includes both oil fired central heating and double glazing. Attic storage is available. The property has its own private septic tank, mains electricity, whilst there is a private water supply, shared with the adjacent Dalmorton Farm and nearby Dalrowan Cottage. The access road, from the single track road, which leads directly to Dalmorton House is shared with the farm. Private parking is available to the rear of the property (Dalmorton House has a vehicular right only for turning, over part of the parking area).

Dalmorton House will undoubtedly be of instant appeal to those seeking a tranquil country home in a spectacular setting, which is still in commuting distance (by car) of Ayr/Kilmarnock, or indeed Glasgow. Our own estate agency valuer Graeme Lumsden comments – “Once again I have the pleasure of marketing a charming country home in a wonderful setting that re-affirms why I left Glasgow to live in the country. I am extremely fortunate over my 20 years in the estate agency business to have sold all types of property, however I find this location truly unique, indeed, for me, the surrounding countryside has a truly magical feel……. one day I might finally get to live here!”
