A five-bedroom estate in Aberdeen, Scotland, owned by professional golfer Paul “Chippy” Lawrie and his wife, Marian, hit the market this month for £2.2 million (US$2.81 million).
Mr. Lawrie, 49, is downsizing to another Aberdeen property after living in Brackenhill for 18 years, according to Fiona Gormley of Savills, the listing agent for the property.
The 5,135-square-foot home boasts a putting and chipping green certified by the United States Golf Association, vaulted ceilings, paneled doors, open fireplaces, stained glass windows, a library with a corner turret, and ornate oak woodwork throughout, including the staircase.
The property officially hit the market on Aug. 11, according to Ms. Gormley.
Occupying two-and-a-half acres, the estate also features a separate, two-bedroom cottage with ancillary accommodations, perfect for multi-generational living, according to Ms. Gormley. The estate also has a greenhouse, potting shed, and a gazebo-covered patio garden.
Located in the village of Bieldside, Ms. Gormley described the property’s location as “a prime…leafy and green residential area.”

The property is located on the road that leads to Balmoral Castle, a Scottish summer getaway for the royal family.
Mr. Lawrie, a native Aberdonian, finished in the top 25 in the 2003 masters tournament, won the British Open in 1999, and was the co-captain of the European Ryder Cup team in 2016. According to Ms. Gormley, Mr. Lawrie will be spending less time competing to focus on expanding the efforts of his foundation, the Paul Lawrie Foundation, which provides opportunities for juniors of any age to start playing golf.
A spokesperson for Mr. Lawrie’s foundation did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
