Fairway to heaven
South Craig is not only an impressive family home in its own right, it also boasts a location that is the envy of golf fans everywhere
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
