Tarfessock is a unique property nestled within a quiet and secluded location in the heart of the Galloway Forest Park at Glentrool and benefits from stunning views over the surrounding woodland and countryside. Tarfessock is of traditional Galloway construction and does require full refurbishment, however, the current owners have partially rewired, installed new plumbing to include a new oil-fired boiler, installed multi-fuel stoves and partially connected a new private water supply. Tarfessock could be developed into a lovely family home with huge potential for smallscale agricultural, equestrian or tourism enterprises.

A feature of Tarfessock is the traditional farm buildings, with one having permission for alterations and change of use to a dwellinghouse. Any interested party wishing to pursue this should make their own enquiries with South Ayrshire Council in this respect. (planning ref: 17/00046/APP – https://www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/planning/) The property extends in total to about 1.83 acres to include the areas occupied by the dwellinghouse, farm buildings, access tracks, etc.

THE GROUNDS & OUTBUILDINGS
Tarfessock is enclosed within its own grounds, in total amounting to about 1.83 acres. There are a range of traditional stone outbuildings and as mentioned earlier, one benefiting from change of use to a residential dwelling. At present, these buildings are utilised for general storage of logs, machinery, etc. and there is also a useful corrugated pole barn.

HOME REPORT
