Burnhouse, Galston, KA4 8LL







An immediately impressive country home with adjoining cottage, various outbuildings and extensive well established garden grounds.

Burnhouse dates back to the 17th century and enjoys a fine position on the outskirts of Galston benefitting from a high degree of privacy with the adjoining cottage providing luxurious self-contained accommodation and excellent rental income.

Burnhouse formed part of the Cessnock Estate and was once a series of cottages, stables and grain mill and retains many period features.

The property has been in the family for some sixty plus years with recent upgrading ensuring the house and cottage are offered to the market in true walk-in style condition.


Certainly Burnhouse is of a size and style seldom available within the market hence internal viewing is essential to appreciate fully this wonderful family home.
