Originally constructed around 1825, Ashcraig is a modern mansion, totalling 10,500 square feet on Skelmorlie's coastline, boasting additions by the renowned architect John Honeyman. Honeyman enhanced the property with an extension to the north side, turret and conservatory, allowing the property to feature spacious and superior living areas. The current owners purchased Ashcraig in 2003 from previous owners of 30 years residency.
Ashcraig is a stunning, detached, red sandstone mansion nestled within 11 acres of mature garden grounds, which were originally laid by Henry Watson for the original owner Mr A O Campbell, a West Indian Sugar Planter. Also erected was a small concrete chapel which now exists as a small dwelling house at the entrance to the grounds. The property's grounds also include a tennis court, paddock and 500 metres of private beach front, allowing it to be undoubtedly one of the finest examples of its type ever on the market. Meticulously restored to its former glory using a professional combination of modern and traditional materials, Ashcraig's current owners have spent eight years thoughtfully extending, developing and upgrading the property to include all aspects of luxury modern life. With an internal area extending to a huge 10,500 thousand square feet, Ashcraig boasts space and superiority whilst maintaining its charm and intimacy.
