Stunning six-bed oak-framed eco-house with 30ft pool and underfloor heating that draws warmth from the earth is for sale at £850,000.

This stunning eco-house complete with natural oak throughout and underfloor heating is on sale for £850,000 - £100,000 less than it cost four years ago. Gadgirth House also features a 30ft swimming pool, nine acres of land, huge panel windows and five bedrooms. The beautiful property was built in Annbank, South Ayrshire, 13 years ago and put up for sale in 2014 for £950,000. The home, which also boasts a 40ft barn, is now for sale for just £850,000. The property, which overlooks the River Ayr, is on an estate which dates from the 14th Century and was owned by the Chalmers family until 1761. It was then sold to a Colonel Joseph Burnett in 1800 who replaced on an old castle with a Georgian mansion. Iain and Karen Hendry, parents of Celtic star Jack, restored and regenerated the site including building the present Gadgirth house in 2005.
Stunning pictures from sellers Savills show how the green oak frame and exposed oak beams give the house a special character. Images of the interior of the house display a newly fitted designer kitchen in a room surrounded by large panel windows making the space bright and welcoming for possible guests. The property also benefits from six gorgeous bathrooms as well as the barn room having a gallery/library with a feature fireplace and french doors to the garden. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and also provides access to the gallery/library and also benefits from an en suite bathroom with spa bath and rain shower.
Its other bedrooms have an en suite shower and have been recently renovated. From the hallway, access is provided to the 10m x 5m heated indoor swimming pool and beyond this is a separate gym. The house has a heat pump which extracts warmth from the soil in a ring system. This then heats the indoor pool and powers the property's underfloor heating. In a newspaper interview in 2014, Iain Hendry, who built the property with his wife, said all of his family members, including daughters Zara and Melissa and Celtic defender Jack, played a part in what the house should look like. He said: 'It was developed around the family. Everyone made their own contribution to what it should look like. We ended up with a home that pleases everyone and provides a fantastic place to entertain friends and family.'He also outlined how he loves the master bedroom of the house. He added: 'In the 1990s, I admired a number of projects carried out by a specialist in green oak frames. I think it gives the house a character of its own, creating a special feel.'If you're an Art Deco lover or a fan of contemporary design then it's probably not for you. But if you love a blend of traditional and modern features, you will adore it.'A spokesman for Savills described the property as 'one of the finest modern houses in Ayrshire, built-in green oak to an uncompromising standard'.
