What a wonderful old stone house. I came across this beauty as I was driving near Ayr, stopped and asked if I could take a few photos. Glad I did, I could look at this for hours.
So many good things, proportion, scale (rear addition doesn't overwhelm the original house) the texture and colors of the stone and wood, and best of all it's been wonderfully maintained. Rarely does one see these wonderful old homes still sporting all their chimneys, shutters, porches and woodwork.
There was a nice two store stone farmhouse across the road too... which leads me to think there is a great story about some talented masons settling in this area. Planning to go for a drive around this area with my camera and hope to have more interesting pics to share!
