Coodham House tees off
May 28 2009
Coodham’s A listed status meant that traditional lime mortars and putties were required and samples of stonework were taken to find an exact geographical match in Glasgow’s pink sandstone quarries.
Six apartments and three homes were thus created within the shell of Coodham, just minutes from Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick Golf Courses and overlooking the estates own private lake. This golfing heritage is no mere coincidence however as Fairlie is attributed with establishing Prestwick Golf Club and the first ever British Open Championship.
Fairlie himself would be at home in the Turkish marble lined hall and staircase which leads to private apartments each kitted out with timber floors, deep oak skirting, hand crafted doors & windows and ornate Georgian themed plasterwork although what the golf mad Victorian would have made of cable free audio visual facilities, lighting, satellite TV and a video-voice security system is less clear.
