Graeme Lumsden, our Estate Agency Director at BLACK HAY Estate Agents, comments…
“Arriving outside The NEUK ….pause for a moment. This striking home appears to have emerged organically from the soil, flanked either side by its strong yet subtle buttress walls, centrally your eye is drawn to the 7 frame oriel window detail, then upwards from the impressive roofline the chimneys rise dramatically emphasising that this is a very special home …one which the successful purchaser will have the joy of owning.
I’ve been very lucky over my 30+ years in the estate agency industry to sell thousands of homes, a handful being very special, and not always because of their high value or location/specification etc ….indeed, for me, it is the simplicity of a home which can be its strongest asset.
This historically noteworthy home relied on its original owner who over a century ago was blessed with a substantial purse to finance the construction of this unique home, yet without the selection of its then relatively young architect Alexander Caldwell Thomson (1873 to 1925) who arrived from Glasgow to open his own architectural practice in Ayr, The NEUK could have simply been another Bungalow style home.
As luck would have it Thomson’s architectural studies/career developed through the period of “The Glasgow Style”, led by the celebrated Charles Rennie Mackintosh, responsible for some of Scotland’s most iconic buildings of that remarkable period when a new style of modern architecture was being driven by Mackintosh and his close associates. The style was striking, because it was not overladen with excessive detail. At the core of this new architectural movement was an organic free flowing style which allowed architectural details that could have become over complicated to simply flow with the design, taking the eye on a natural journey of detail notable for its simplicity.
Visiting The NEUK one can see and feel the influence of that powerful yet short period of Glasgow Style which Mackintosh led, and which undoubtedly influenced the young Alexander Caldwell Thomson during his time studying at Glasgow School of Art. Take a visual tour of Glasgow including its world famous School of Art (now very sadly damaged by 2 fires), The Willow Tea Rooms (now Mackintosh at The Willow), House for an Art Lover or to The Hill House in Helensburgh, then consider The NEUK, enjoy the subtle details which Thomson designed, reflecting many of those details for which those iconic Mackintosh Designed Buildings are widely admired.
In my view, The NEUK undoubtedly displays many of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s iconic architectural design details however it is Alexander Caldwell Thomson who, as in life, took those influences from his early studies/career and created his signature details at The NEUK which now serves as a tribute to both Mackintosh and the appreciation that Thomson had for the enduring Glasgow Style.
As is often the case of noteworthy homes, each owner is only a ”custodian” during their period of ownership, however what a pleasurable way to serve your role as custodian – owning & living in The NEUK. It will be a lucky buyer indeed that is handed the keys from the current owners.”
The Virtual Tour & Digital Brochure/Floorplan will be available to view shortly on our website - blackhay.co.uk

The most appealing accommodation is featured over 2 levels, comprising on ground floor, welcoming reception hall, stunning formal lounge, impressive dining room, a fabulous/substantial extension styled open-plan as a family/living/breakfasting room with “snug” area, split-level kitchen (integrated appliances), bedroom No 1 with en-suite shower room/wc, bedroom No 2 featuring fitted dressing room & en-suite shower room/wc, useful study/alternative 5th bedroom. A central hallway features a striking staircase (useful guests wc understair) which rises to a gallery style upper hallway off which the “master” bedroom (No 3) is located together with a 4th bedroom which is currently utilised as a dressing room, the main bathroom (4 piece with small sauna) is also on the upper level.
Gas central heating & double glazing are featured. EPC - C. During their long period of ownership the current owners have been careful to retain the rich character of this unique home, whilst investing both personally & financially enhancing The NEUK - for example, full re-roofing, the professional design/build of the fabulous extension & the design/build of a substantial detached double garage block with studio style accommodation above.
In addition new fitments/further improvements have been made by the owners.
Hard-standing parking to the front is by way of a monobloc driveway (sliding gate) within the landscaped gardens, whilst to the left twin remote control doors lead through a secure carport & garage, in-turn a monobloc driveway across the rear landscaped gardens to the detached double garage (heated, again remote control doors). The private gardens are landscaped/picturesque incorporating a luxuriously styled “Barbecue House”.
Internal period/character features believed to date back to the original build include impressive fireplaces, ironmongery, stunning staircase & galleried upper hallway, decorative timberwork, whilst externally the porthole windows, oriel window, chimneys, buttress walls etc are also believed to date back to the original build.
Quite simply - The NEUK is a wonderful example of an early 20th century home which reflects classic details of the iconic “Glasgow Style” made famous by the celebrated Charles Rennie Mackintosh - The Glasgow Style displaying elements of the decorative Art Nouveau period.

Graeme Lumsden, Estate Agency Director/Valuer at BLACK HAY comments – “ The perception of a Luxury Home can appear to be easily satisfied by those 2 words - Luxury Home. In reality, to the discerning buyer, luxury means much more than just the word.
With 35 Years in the property industry I know that Cala Homes are still highly regarded as a Builder of Luxury/High Quality Homes. No 1 Shanter Wynd has been owned from new by its current owners, featuring Cala’s original luxury specification. Today’s specification will undoubtedly be different however No 1 retains its rare sizeable accommodation, secluded setting, prestigious address …and of course it’s still a Cala Home …one can imagine if it was being built today ...what sale price would Cala set?
In my view, quite simply an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a fabulous Detached Luxury Home.”

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * “ Firbrae ” - A charming Character Home enjoying prime seafront position on Troon’s prestigious South Beach. This Traditional Detached Sandstone Home is believed to originally date circa early 19th Century, of immense appeal with its distinctive Tudor-Gothic architectural details, generous array of 11/12 main apartment accommodation over 2 levels, all set amidst a larger plot adjacent to Troon’s sweeping beachfront.
A very comfortable home to its current owner since the mid 1950’s, noting that during their ownership the property was a combination of Doctor’s Surgery and private home. Although a much loved home over the years it is fair to say that it does now need modernisation (noting that the property is offered For Sale "Sold as Seen"). However, for the successful purchaser it is a wonderful opportunity to secure a unique property with real potential to create a spectacular seafront home.
Set amidst a larger plot/gardens, with tarmacadam “horseshoe” style driveway to the front (facing South Beach road) whilst to the rear larger size lawned gardens, enclosed with stone boundary wall and gate to rear leading to the beachfront. The extended rear garden area provides excellent scope to develop the property further, subject to required planning permission etc.
The accommodation comprises on ground floor, 3/4 public rooms, 4 bedrooms (Nos 1 to 4), kitchen, utility, sun room & downstairs wc. A discrete staircase from the reception hall leads to the upper level which features 4 further bedrooms (Nos 5 to 8), a small boxroom and the main bathroom.
Partial electric heating is featured. EPC - G. The hardstanding driveway to the front provides private parking whilst also providing access to a garage to the side. On-street parking is also available. The larger lawned rear gardens are enclosed with a period stone boundary wall for privacy whilst a rear gate allows easy access to the beach/seafront.
Firbrae occupies a truly favoured position within highly regarded South Beach, Troon, a most desirable "Seaside Town" with its own marina, on Ayrshire's sweeping coastline, itself notable for its world renowned golf courses. Troon is of broad appeal, popular with locals and commuters alike, Glasgow Buyers particularly favouring its wonderful seafront location whilst being only approx' 35 minutes commute by car from Glasgow City Centre (both train & bus services aid those commuting) whilst Edinburgh/East Coast Buyers favour the better weather of Troon on the West Coast.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“After nearly 4 decades in the property industry I still marvel at the sheer joy of owning a seafront home.
I live in the countryside and enjoy the seasons changing around me however in my heart it is a seafront home with its seascape changing by the minute that is my dream home and indeed the dream home of so many.
Firbrae has clearly been a much loved family home, of substantial proportion (circa 2800 sq ft) with an abundance of character & charm …enjoying a truly sought after beach/seafront location.
Undoubtedly the successful purchaser will have to spend a considerable sum to deliver their very special Dream Home however the end result will easily justify the hard work/financial commitment …when one settles down knowing that the beach/seafront is indeed literally a stone’s throw away, instead of loading up your car to go to the beach, it’s there every day when you wake up. “

" In my view the allure of a seafront home and its ever changing sea views remains unmatched. After 35 years in the property industry my heart still skips a beat when I arrive at a seafront home and catch sight of the sea views which the owners can sometimes grow familiar with ...yet, perhaps with my family connection to the Mull of Kintyre I yearn to live by-the-sea ...many an hour immersed in the changing seascape ...and when you need to actually feel/breathe the sea at Cladach ...unlock the gate at the end of the garden and literally a pebble's throw away... the sand dunes beckon, and you are there ...walking the beach, whatever the weather ...water rippling or white-horses racing ashore on stormy days.
I live in the country with wonderful views, cows with their inquisitive heads looking over the hedges and a red squirrel that visits most days ...yet, what would I give for a home by-the-sea? The successful buyer of Cladach will, in my humble opinion ...be living their dream (and mine!) "

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * The Dhorlin, Prestwick - A fabulous opportunity to acquire a substantial Traditional Detached Cottage Style Bungalow featuring superb 7/8 Main Apartment accommodation. This desirable home is deceptive externally, the front elevation of subtle "Cottage Style". Internal viewing reveals a professionally extended home with well proportioned apartments throughout whilst the very substantial extended breakfasting kitchen/dining/family area to the rear is a spectacular focal point. In addition, the formal bay windowed lounge is now open-plan to the rear (with the former 5th bedroom), making a striking public room of very substantial proportion.
The property enjoys a favoured setting on the "seafront" side of Prestwick Main Street with Montgomerie Road being just off Links Road where one can stroll past Prestwick Golf Club to the sweeping promenade/seafront. Parking for the property is "on-street" however the current owners instantly appreciated the quality/size of The Dhorlin and were laser focused on where they intended living rather than parking their car.
The most appealing accommodation is entered via the welcoming reception hall where one can visibly appreciate the length through to the open-plan extended family area. From the hallway, access onto the remaining ground floor apartments whilst a discretely positioned staircase provides access to the upper level. A useful small understair utility together with a stylish separate "downstairs" shower room/wc are located off the reception hall. The aforementioned formal lounge extends substantially in length as it now incorporates the former 5th bedroom however this could be returned to two separate apartments (by the successful purchaser) if a separate 5th bedroom was required. Two spacious double bedrooms are featured (Nos 1 & 2, to the front & rear respectively) with No 2 currently being used as a "craft/hobby room".
As one moves through to the rear extension, the hugely appealing open-plan breakfasting kitchen/dining/living room features extensive windowing including full width bi-fold doors which open or closed provide a striking focal point as the subtle mixed colour slate floor extends from within to the elevated external sun terrace which overlooks the still larger sized gardens. The kitchen is fitted with very stylish high quality floor/wall cabinets, integrated appliances and a centrepiece breakfasting island whilst both the dining & living room areas are on an L-shape adjacent - this layout encouraging family gatherings or entertaining with friends. On the upper level, 2 further double bedrooms are provided (Nos 3 & 4) whilst a stylish central bathroom serves this level.
The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC - D. Neatly presented private gardens are provided to the front & rear, the front easily maintained with a gated pathway to the side leading to the rear - the rear of larger size, mainly lawned with stone boundary walls, useful outbuildings provide valued external storage. The elevated sun terrace projects from the rear extension whilst a further paved patio area is situated to the side, adjacent to the side entrance/exit door.
Prestwick remains Ayrshire's "property hotspot", with its well established mixed main street shopping/restaurants/amenities, whilst the sweeping promenade/seafront is within walking distance or a cycle/car journey. Public transport includes bus & train. Prestwick Airport is nearby whilst the property is also convenient for access to the A77/A78. Of broad appeal, valued locally by family buyers in particular, together with couples & retired/semi-retired clients, whilst further afield of interest to Glasgow based buyers/those relocating from South of the Border, seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside ...and a better work/life balance.
Graeme Lumsden, BLACK HAY Estate Agency Director/Valuer comments... " Even after 36 Years in the estate agency industry I know that I am blessed to do the job that I do ...helping home sellers & buyers on their property journey through their lives.
The added bonus is also visiting/valuing & indeed selling all sorts of different styles/values of home ...including some very Special Homes which instantly catch my attention, indeed it can be hard not to imagine myself buying/living in a particular home.
The Dhorlin is one such home, a spectacular home, yet for me it's the magical combination of the subtle traditional exterior which conceals the spectacular contemporary interior, one which can accommodate couples or families and offers sought after flexibility ...one that you won't want to leave when you come home ...a Special Home that the successful purchaser should be over the moon to own!
