Craigard – A truly exceptional individually designed Detached Villa discreetly set amidst circa 0.75 acre of private gardens in the village of Craigie, approx. 2.5 miles from the A77, 30 miles from Glasgow and 11/9/8 miles from Ayr/Prestwick/Prestwick Airport respectively. Built circa 1974 for its original owners viewers will note that Craigard is thoughtfully positioned amidst its wonderful almost woodland style landscaped gardens giving it a balanced position from which to enjoy the splendid surrounding garden views which are undoubtedly one of the particularly appealing features of the property.

The central feature is perhaps the well proportioned 8/9 main apartments (3/4 public rooms & 5 bedrooms) provided over 2 levels which have been sensibly laid out to offer a central core of living apartments with the majority of the bedroom accommodation situated to the right and the option of the single storey portion to the left being available for semi-independent use, whether as a granny-style wing, teenagers studio or clearly defined guests accommodation.

The current owners have thoughtfully enhanced the property further creating additional accommodation and a striking elevated terrace style balcony which is accessed from the upper lounge and enjoys wonderful sweeping garden views and glimpses of the surrounding countryside. On viewing one can appreciate the very stylish accommodation which is complemented by quality finishes and fittings together with careful use of natural wood including oak, maple and walnut. The extensive use of glazing cleverly captures the splendid garden views and there is a clear sense of calm and space which is not evident in manufactured modern executive style homes in this price range. Of particular note is the stunning “Hollijon & Phillips” true luxury kitchen with high quality German soft-closing cabinets, sweeping granite worktops and quality Siemens integrated appliances including an extra wide induction hob. The limestone flooring in the 2nd lounge features underfloor heating which extends into the adjacent wet room.

In particular the accommodation comprises as follows – on the ground floor entering through the main door from the entrance porch onto the reception hall with feature staircase and full double height glazing enjoying splendid gardens views, to the left of the hall bedroom No 4 enjoys garden views to the front, moving forward from the hall into a striking larger proportioned open-plan family/dining room which has three quarter length full drop double glazing (including patio door) to one side capturing sweeping garden views whilst the family area has an inviting multi-fuel stove fire. From the family/dining room an open doorway leads onto a stunning luxury kitchen - bespoke designed & installed for the present owners at very considerable expense, a useful utility room is situated off.

A doorway from the utility room leads onto the single storey left hand wing which is easily adaptable for use as semi–independent accommodation, at present featuring a very stylish 2nd lounge with the outer wall being virtually full width double glazing with patio doors onto the gardens, from this room one walks through to a short hallway which links onto a very stylish wet room (thereafter access is gained onto the double garage and its attic storage).

Moving into the right wing from the reception hall one finds three bedrooms (Nos 1, 2 & 3 - two double plus a single bedroom which is currently used as a study) together with a stylish family bathroom (shower instead of bath) and useful separate wc. The staircase from the reception hall leads to the upper hallway off which a most impressive and relaxing formal lounge awaits with the visual bonus of triple aspects, a feature real fire on the main wall and the focal point perhaps being the patio door which leads onto the superb elevated terrace style balcony which undoubtedly captures the attention with its fabulous sweeping views. The “master” bedroom suite is located on the opposite side of the upper hallway with a spacious bedroom (No 5) enjoying dual aspects and the added benefit of a stylish en-suite bathroom and separate dressing room.

The overall specification includes double glazing and oil fired central heating with mains electricity, water and a septic tank. EPC Rating - E

A sweeping tarmacadam driveway from the main street at the outer edge of the village discreetly leads to Craigard with a substantial hardstanding area offering private parking for several vehicles whilst also leading to an integral double garage which provides secure parking/storage with additional attic storage also available.

The gardens are well established with a very wide array of mature, semi-mature trees, conifers, shrubs, flowers etc offering favoured privacy with neatly presented lawns to the front and rear creating a landscaped garden which radiates a subtle almost woodland feel to it.

Graeme Lumsden, Director of Black Hay Estate Agents comments....

“ It’s said don’t judge a book by its cover, that it makes sense to open the pages and study more carefully……….similarly Craigard has to be viewed internally to appreciate that this is indeed a unique home which subtly radiates interior style, displaying quality fittings with thoughtful use of quality natural timber finishes including maple, walnut & oak to compliment the extensive glazing which draws the delightful garden views back into the interior enhancing the sense of calm, a valuable yet hard to find feature in modern homes.

Craigard is an individually designed home which conceals its distinctive modern architectural style to the rear where one can fully appreciate it privately from the substantial & peaceful private gardens which although landscaped retain a gentle woodland feel. The well planned accommodation invites families or creative use from those yearning for a home that is a world away from the repetitive modern executive villas which are touted by well established builders who have forgotten that many of their clients want to live in an individual home rather than an almost manufactured product.

I would urge those that are tired with such unimaginative modern homes, where you can almost touch the house next door, to view Craigard as it offers something special by way of its enticing & calm interior, creative design and peaceful setting amidst wonderful gardens extending to circa 0.75 acre. Today’s builders or developers would try to squeeze several houses onto the grounds of Craigard....... thankfully this is a home created for the owner and not a product of the builder. “
