AT ANY time of the year South Craig is an im­pres­sive prop­erty, po­si­tioned as it is in se­cluded gar­den grounds at the south­ern end of Bentinck Drive, one of Troon’s most cov­eted ad­dresses. But with the 2016 Open Cham­pi­onship still fresh in the mem­ory South Craig has another ace card to play – a set­ting which, ac­cord­ing to the es­tate agent, is “only a pitch­ing wedge from Royal Troon Golf Club and Troon beach”.

The house is im­pres­sive on many lev­els, not least be­ing its dis­tinc­tive red brick façade with match­ing gar­den walls.

In­side is a two-storey lay­out that in­cludes a spa­cious re­cep­tion hall with cloak­room off and dou­ble doors into an el­e­gantly pro­por­tioned draw­ing room with a fea­ture fire­place and Liv­ing Flame fire.

The re­main­ing ground floor rooms are po­si­tioned on ei­ther side of a long cen­tral in­ner hall­way – study, bath­room (with sep­a­rate shower), util­ity, din­ing room, bay win­dowed sit­ting room, open-plan 26ft kitchen/break­fast­ing room, en suite master bed­room with fit­ted wardrobes, plus a de­light­ful gar­den room and ad­join­ing gym/fit­ness room with French doors to the gar­den. An oak stair­case in the en­trance hall leads up to two ad­di­tional bath­rooms and four dou­ble bed­rooms, in ad­di­tion to ex­ten­sive built-in land­ing stor­age.

Stand­out fea­tures in­clude the din­ing kitchen, a su­perb fam­i­lymily space with ex­ter­nal ac­cess toto anan ad­join­ing pa­tio, while e the con­tem­po­rary kitchen has in­te­grated d ap­pli­ances, is­land/break­fast bar, Amer­i­canstyle fridge freezer and plenty of space for din­ing fur­ni­ture. The con­ser­va­tory/gar­den room is also notable, fin­ished with an eye for de­tail that in­cludes a prac­ti­cal tiled floor and be­spoke roof blinds. Next door in the fit­ness room, the French doors open to a hot tub on a paved base – a su­perb way to eend a work-out or sim­ply rel­re­lax in a beau­ti­fully land­scaped­land­sca half-acre walled gar­den­gard that en­sures to­tal pri­vacy.priv

The prop­erty also has a black-sur­faced drive­way, de­tached dou­ble garage and two stores and a green­house. Ar­guably the most af­flu­ent and sought af­ter town on the Ayr­shire coast due to Royal Troon’s sta­tus as one of the top golf cour­ses in the world, Troon also has ex­cel­lent lo­cal ameni­ties, highly re­garded schools and of­fers con­ve­nient rail and road ac­cess via the A77/ M77 to Glas­gow Air­port and the city cen­tre.

South Craig is for sale with Robb Res­i­den­tial’s Glas­gow of­fice at of­fers over £725,000.

AN AYR­SHIRE GEM: From the rolling lawn to the be­spoke gym room and open plan kitchen, South Craig has lots to of­fer – in­clud­ing a lo­ca­tion next to Royal Troon Golf Club and Troon beach.
