Prestwick, The Crescent, Monkton Road, KA9 1BQ

May 8, 2022 2:34 pm Published by

* NEW to Market  -  Available to View Now *   No 7 The Crescent – A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial 6 Main Apartment Traditional Flat which forms the entire Ground Floor of a charming Detached Red Sandstone Villa, itself within most favoured horseshoe style crescent near to Prestwick Cross. Externally the property initially appears to be a pair of Semi Detached Villas however we understand from the owners that is it believed to have been originally built as separate ground & upper flats (perhaps more visually reminiscent of a upper & lower conversion) and that individual flat style remains the same today. Access to No 7 is by way of its private driveway to the left hand side, this leading to its own private main door porch entrance, whilst access continues to the small rear garden & shared drying area. Importantly, the entire front garden area is believed to be wholly owned by the ground floor flat (exact details/boundaries to be confirmed from the title deeds). Entering through the private porch, the main door opens onto a lengthy reception hall with on-the-level apartments off comprising, a most appealing bay windowed lounge to the front with garden/crescent views,  a separate dining room to the side/rear which leads onto a modern style rear facing kitchen (door to garden), bedroom Nos 1 & 2 are located to the front whilst Nos 3 & 4 are located to the rear, with the bathroom situated midway off the reception hall. The specification includes both gas central heating & double glazing. EPC – Tbc. Private gardens are situated to the front & rear, noting that the rear garden is smaller (a shared drying area – with the owner of the upper flat, is accessed adjacent). The private driveway provides off-crescent parking. The property was purchased by its most recent owner as both their private home & to function as a guest house which it did so until the owner latterly retired from business and lived comfortably in this substantial yet very flexible home. The competitive price allows scope for the successful purchase to modernise to their own style/budget and the 6 Main Apartments are entirely flexible, perhaps serving as a family home or for a couple looking for space to relax/entertain and perhaps work from home. 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 short cycle/car journey. Traditional Style Homes remain much in demand, of broad appeal and valued by local homebuyers whilst further afield this particular style of home tends to attract Glasgow based buyers who are seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside ...and a better work/life balance. Interestingly a similar size of traditional flat in Glasgow’s West End will easily exceed £500,000 …yet Prestwick provides that magical by-the-seaside location, with easy commuting to/from Glasgow. Homemovers relocating from South of the Border continue to seek out coastal locations/properties with the attraction of added “value for money” in relocating from south to north. Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments… “ After 35 Years in the property industry I’m still as excited by the property market as I was from Day 1. Originally from Glasgow’s West End I fully appreciate the opportunity that No 7 The Crescent offers – a very substantial almost conversion style home,  yet actually an original as-built Traditional Character Flat occupying the entire ground floor of a Charming Detached Villa. Purchasing a home in Prestwick positively encourages one to embrace seaside living, making the most of walking the promenade with its spectacular panoramic sea views …whether waves are just gently rippling ashore or on wild winter days the white-horses race off the sea to douse beach/promenade walkers with sea spray. The canny Glaswegian in me keeps ticking all the positive boxes when looking at this splendid home …the location, style, size, flexibility, potential, character/charm, convenience, commuting …and it all comes with that magical attraction of the seaside …not getting in the car to travel to the seaside …simply walking out of your front door and within a few minutes you are at the seaside. This Glaswegian says …save yourself several hundred thousand pounds and buy this wonderful home in Prestwick …and on your commute to Glasgow …smile contently knowing you’ve swapped the city for the seaside. ” To view, please telephone BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS direct on 01292 283606.

Prestwick, Marina Road, KA9 1QZ

June 17, 2022 3:01 pm Published by

*NEW to Market - Available to View Now*  Easily missed within its cul de sac just off Marina Road, this Modern Style Detached Bungalow would normally be particularly sought after due to its near seafront location, however in this instance every picture does indeed tell a story …on this occasion it’s clear that the property does require modernisation both internally/externally, however the competitive price allows scope for the successful purchaser to re-style to their own taste/budget. The property was privately built new for its current & only owner, latterly however the maintenance/upkeep has fallen behind, hence the property is now offered for sale on a “Sold as Seen” basis. The property will likely be of broad appeal to a range of buyers and one can easily envisage how the successful purchaser will enhance both the property and its value following modernisation. 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 short cycle/car journey. Bungalow Homes of this style are much in demand and although of broad appeal are valued particularly by retired/semi retired clients & 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. Access is via a main door entrance & vestibule to the front of the property, then opening onto a very spacious L-shaped lounge/dining which one can imagine being the focal point following refurbishment, a corridor style hallway off leads onto the kitchen, 2 bedrooms and bathroom. A gas supply/gas central heating system is present however this is untested & sold-as-seen. There is an untested solid-fuel fire in the lounge/dining, again sold-as-seen. EPC – D. Private gardens are featured however these clearly will require considerable attention, noting that there is disused caravan in the rear garden and this will be left for the new owner to deal with/remove. Parking is available off-street within the driveway to the side of the property. Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments… “ With 35 years working in the property industry across Scotland, that iconic phrase location, location & location remains one of the key factors about a particular property’s desirability. In addition, post-lockdown has delivered a much increased flow of buyers who yearn for a more relaxed style of living, particularly moving from bustling city life in Glasgow to a coastal location that offers relaxing seafront/beach walks, encouraging one to enjoy the outdoor life. In my view… although 37A Marina Road is clearly a challenge, it is equally an opportunity to acquire a Detached Bungalow with real potential in a highly favoured near seafront location. One can easily imagine how it will be transformed by the successful buyer into a comfortable home from which to enjoy the thriving coastal town of Prestwick. “ To view, please telephone BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS direct on 01292 283606.
