About this property

  • Chalfont is an exceptional mansion house that has been renovated and upgraded to the highest of standards since its conception in the early 1900s. This elegant home sits in an enviable position surrounded by lush green lawns, mature gardens and trees. It was designed to take full advantage of the prime location and topography with sought after sea views over the Firth of Clyde and the surrounding golf courses.

    Approached by a long driveway and accessed by secure twin wrought iron gates, the drive curves towards and round the property to the main entrance. This has been well planned to include a turning circle and ample parking both external and internal with garage parking for three cars.

    The principal accommodation is substantial and extends to approximately 5479 sq ft over two floors including a self-contained two bedroom apartment. Chalfont is brimming with original features including wooden staircases, period fireplaces and wood panelling in some rooms.

    The accommodation begins with the reception hall and main staircase to the upper landing. Off the reception hall the main drawing room features dual aspect views over the garden and countryside with French doors providing access out onto the terrace. The dining room has a large picture window looking onto the garden and two sets of French doors onto the terrace and patio. The study has a beautiful bay window and focal fireplace.

    The stunning open plan kitchen and family room is finished beautifully with stone worktops and high quality wall and floor mounted fitted cabinets along with high spec appliances including an programmable Everhot range. French doors onto the patio, gas stove and space for a large dining table make this a fantastic social area and the heart of the home. A utility room, cloakroom/WC, pantry and office/storage complete the ground floor accommodation.

    The first floor comprises an exquisite master bedroom with a luxurious en suite shower room and balcony looking across to Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran. A further five well-proportioned bedrooms and wonderful family bathroom with freestanding bath have all been designed and finished to an impeccable standard. Completing the first floor accommodation is the self-contained apartment consisting of games room/sitting room with kitchen, two bedrooms (one of which is currently set up as a gym), shower room and sauna.

    The gardens surrounding Chalfont are immaculately maintained and a credit to the current owners, with large expanses of lawn and a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs with evergreen hedging providing additional privacy. To the rear of the property are various sitting areas, fishpond complete with bridge and a useful potting shed.

Local information

  • Troon is one of Scotland's finest towns and world famous for the Royal Troon Golf Course which was founded in 1878 and has hosted the British Open on numerous occasions. Developed through the 18th century by the Duke of Portland, the coming of the Glasgow, Paisley and Ayr railway encouraged further growth in the mid 19th century with the town continuing to establish itself as a superior resort for holidaymakers drawn to the sandy beaches and the quality of its golf.
  • Southwood is an exclusive enclave of houses laid out by the Duke of Portland's plans between 1890 and 1914 and became popular with merchants due to the easy access to Glasgow by rail and its famed golf courses. Southwood is similar in many ways to developments of the same era at North Berwick, Gullane or indeed Sunningdale in Berkshire.
  • Troon lies approximately 8 miles north of Ayr and has a bustling town centre and a wide variety of shops, supermarkets, renowned restaurants and excellent boutique shopping. Prestwick Airport is approximately 3 miles away and Glasgow is easily commutable by rail from Troon railway station (journey time approximately 42 minutes) or by car via the A77 / M77.
  • Troon and Ayr provide excellent primary and secondary schooling with the local secondary school, Marr College, and the private Wellington school in Ayr, each having good reputations for both academic and sporting achievements. There is an additional wide range of private schools in the southside of Glasgow including Hutchesons' Grammar School, Craigholme and Belmont High School.
  • Royal Troon last hosted the British Open golf championship in 2016 and Prestwick Golf Club is the original home of the Open. Troon marina offers a sheltered harbour and the waters around Troon are renowned for some of the best racing waters in Europe.
