Since 1984 Bell Craig has been a popular family run Guest House and is brought to the market due to the retirement of the current owners. This beautifully presented, impressive and substantial villa has been maintained to the highest standard, carefully blending the original period features with contemporary finishes and décor. The adaptable accommodation would also make a fantastic family home located in the heart of the picturesque town of St Andrews a stone’s throw away from the West Sands Beach and right on the doorstep of the Old Course.
The property itself provides particularly light, bright and spacious rooms which have retained a host of lovey period features including cornices, picture rails, stripped back wooden doors and surrounds, deep window sills and a beautiful Oregon pine balustrade providing a warm welcome to the upper levels.
On the ground floor there is a welcoming entrance vestibule with beautiful, traditional tiled flooring giving access to the reception hallway with solid oak flooring.
To the front of the property there is a generous and bright room which is currently utilised for guest dining with feature alcove and shelving.
There is a further reception room on the ground floor, currently used as a private, owners lounge and this features a marble fire-place with living flame gas fire, double storage cupboard, shelving and access to both the manager’s accommodation and kitchen.
The kitchen is fully equipped with base and wall mounted units, Zanussi electric oven, hob and hood, 1
½ bowl sink with side drainer, tiled to splash-back with a large larder cupboard to the rear and external door to the courtyard.
The manager’s accommodation comprises a single bedroom with a pleasant outlook over the courtyard area and an en-suite shower.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms with en-suite facilities and a convenient walk-in linen store with shelving.
Room One is currently utilised as a double room with an en-suite bathroom comprising free-standing WHB, WC and bath with mains shower over. Shaver point.
Room Two is currently utilised as a triple room with a feature Bay Window and en-suite shower room with free-standing WHB, WC and Mira Zest shower. Shaver point.
Room Three is currently utilised as a twin room with sliding door access, from a small entrance hallway, into a shower room with free-standing WHB, WC and Mira Zest electric shower. Shaver point.
On the second floor there are three further bedrooms, again enjoying en-suite facilities.
Room Five is a generously proportioned triple room to the rear of the property with ample space for free-standing furniture, feature alcove with power and light. The en-suite facility of this room is equipped with a fitted WHB with storage underneath, a corner WC and a Mira Go electric shower.
Room Six is also a spacious triple room with deep, inset window, WHB with storage, vanity mirror and shaver point. A sliding door gives access to the en-suite with Mira Zest electric shower and WC.
The third floor is completed by Room Seven which is a beautifully bright double bedroom with inset window and open hanging space with additional shelving. En-suite shower with fitted WHB and WC and a Mira Jump electric shower.
Bell Craig is rather unique in many ways and is one of the few properties in Murray Park that has retained a basement. This additional space provides an excellent laundry facility and office space. Finally, an absolute must for all properties in the Home of Golf is the secure golf club store.
The current owners of Bell Craig have gone to considerable lengths to ensure that the property has been modernised and maintained with on-going re-decoration, re-carpeting and re-vamping of all rooms. Each en-suite facility has been upgraded to a very high standard with a combination of wet-wall, ceramic tiling and modern sanitary ware.
The central heating system, radiators and double glazing have also been renewed with the roof being professionally checked annually.
Bell Craig Guest house currently employs a live-in manager with a wealth of experience in the running of the business and a well-established relationship with local contractors who would be willing to negotiate continued employment with the new owners should this be required.
