Aside from the vast expanse of gardens, fields and woodland, Hallmark Stud comes complete with Sidehead Farm and Sidehead Farm Cottage. Both homes are as individual as a set of fingerprints and offer farmhouse comforts and cottage charm respectively.
Original features abound in the farmhouse, with its cow byre now stylishly converted into a comfortable lounge. There’s a traditional kitchen and large dining room, as well as a cosy family room and home office. Add in the drawing room and an oh-so-bright sun room, and you’ll find you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to space.
The farmhouse has two large double bedrooms on the ground floor, one with en suite and an additional shower room, and a wonderful principal en suite bedroom on the first floor, with private access. There’s even a teenage crib with its very own staircase too.
The cottage, meanwhile, oozes countryside chic with a stunning double height entrance hallway, peaceful lounge and study. There’s a dining kitchen, which family and friends will make a beeline for, and a utility and handy downstairs cloakroom.
On the ground floor you’ll find the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, as well as a large double bedroom and family bathroom. And upstairs, there’s a further generous bedroom with en suite.
The mature gardens are large and manicured, and together with extensive farmland and woodland areas, they provide an incredible 28 acres of outside space – and gallons of fresh air! Professional standard equestrian facilities, including multiple stables and paddocks, offer endless possibilities and you can live The Good Life with your own flock of chickens and ample space for the finest kitchen garden.
Views stretch panoramically across endless countryside towards the Ayrshire coast, Ailsa Craig, Isle of Arran and Ayr Bay to the south. And to the north, the vista extends to the Trossachs National Park. You may even catch a glimpse of Ben Lomond on a clear day. It’s a rural idyll, tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Yet, walk into the nearby conservation village of Dunlop and be whisked into Glasgow City Centre in around 30 minutes by train.
