Hole-in-one for house-hunting golfers 175


By Alexander Lawrie
A GOLFER’S dream flat has just gone on the market – complete with a golf course in its back garden.
The rare property is set within a 100-acre 18-hole course, has plenty of car parking and boasts its very own 19th hole clubhouse just a short putt away from the front door.
The three-bedroom upper villa flat is situated above the Craigentinny Golf Club in Edinburgh and is up for sale at offers over £135,000.
Overlooking the 18th green of the course, the house commands stunning views of the nearby Arthur’s Seat.
And the new owners won’t have far to go for a quick refreshment as the golf club bar is situated just next door.
To the rear of the property is a private courtyard garden along with an informal parking allocation that has been agreed with the owners of the golf club for the residents use.
Scott Brown, Estate Agency Partner at Warners, said that the property was a rare find.
He said: “You won’t find many flats with a 97-acre back garden like this.
“It’s located right above the club shop, overlooking the 18th green, which means you can’t live closer to a golf course than this. 
“And for added appeal it has a pub literally on the doorstep – thanks to the local clubhouse as well as plenty of free parking.
“But even if you weren’t a golfer, the views are about as spectacular as you could find in Edinburgh.
“Although the interior is in need of a complete renovation, there is so much potential here. With the right kind of investment, you could create a perfect three-bedroom home with a golf course for your back garden.”
The flat is in need of full modernisation, but it is hoped that its three bedrooms, kitchen/dining room and spacious living room will attract investors interested in renovating it into the perfect golfer’s haven.
