Spotlight on: Hawkswood House
If you love Scotland, and you love golf, you are bound to love Hawkswood House, close to St Andrews in the Kingdom of Fife. Even if you never had a second thought about either Scotland or golf, you are still going to be swept away by this five-star homestead.
A broad driveway sweeps in front of several handsome, contemporary stone buildings, with red tiled roofs, an enormous conservatory and an extravagant outdoor balcony. To the front of the property lies a professionally designed, short golfing green. As far as the eye can see is undulating unspoilt countryside. Under the balcony is a hydro-spa facility that can accommodate all ten house guests in a whirlpool bath. And the patio boats a huge Mediterranean barbecue pit.
Two generous reception rooms are flooded with light, filled with comfortable stylish furniture and made cosy with log burning fires. Sky TV is available throughout, extending into the conservatory. There are five deluxe double bedrooms with individual ensuite facilities. The superbly appointed kitchen boasts two of everything (dishwashers, fridge-freezers, sinks) as well as a steam oven, induction hob and everything you could possibly need for dining and entertaining, including a large table. There’s a boot room for clubs and damp clothing, and a terraced balcony, for evening drinks or sunrise breakfasts.
If You Can Bear to Tear Yourselves Away
There is so much to do in this area. St Andrews is the world-renowned home of golf, and a charming seaside cathedral city, filled with wonderful galleries and museums, botanic gardens, and fabulous places to eat.
