This desirable home enjoys a very convenient town centre location with easy access to a wide variety of amenities/shopping/public transport whilst Ayr’s sweeping promenade/seafront is within eyesight/a short walk - noting the elevated views from the attic apartment, across the rooftops with the coastline stretching out along the horizon.
The current owner has undertaken refurbishment works over an extended period of time, gradually nearing completion, with the extensive attic level a particular focal point - formally converted with the necessary planning permission etc. Some minor works are required however the competitive price allows scope for the successful purchaser to finalise the interior to suit their own style/budget (noting the positive Home Report mortgage valuation of £220,000). The accommodation is featured over the elevated ground & first floors with a further staircase rising to the very substantial attic level. The garden level flat & a mews-style single storey building to the rear are under separate ownership and not offered for sale.

*NEW to Market - Available to View Now* A most appealing Semi Detached “Cottage” Style Bungalow of particular appeal to the client seeking a small garden/patio area which encourages outdoor relaxation on the best of days, rather than deciding whether to mow the lawn, do the weeding or maintain the flower beds – it positively welcomes the non-gardener :-))
Tucked within St John Street, just off Caerlaverock Road, within easy walking distance of Prestwick’s thriving Town Centre ……and from there to its sweeping promenade/seafront with its wonderful panoramic sea views. Monobloc wraps around the front/side and rear of the property ensuring minimal maintenance whilst the front garden area has been adapted to provide preferred private off-street parking.
Internal viewing reveals flexible 4 Main Apartment Accommodation over 2 levels, comprising - entrance porch opening onto the reception hall, an attractive front facing lounge, separate open-plan dining/kitchen to the rear together with an additional room to the rear which currently serves as a 2nd public room however was previously a 3rd bedroom, a stylish modern bathroom is situated off the reception hall. A semi-hidden staircase to the side of the lounge leads to the upper hallway off which 2 further bedrooms are featured, whilst an additional bathroom (shower rather than bath) serves these upper bedrooms.
Gas central heating & double glazing are featured. EPC – D. Private off-street parking via the monobloc hardstanding parking area within the front garden, whilst on-street parking is also available.

In our view… a much rarer opportunity to acquire a home which can serve those not wishing to be tied to garden maintenance, perhaps a “bolthole” for those seeking a 2nd home within walking distance of the seafront or the investor perhaps looking for an “Air BNB” style opportunity. Deceptive externally, the property features flexible accommodation which will be of broad appeal …and all within a short distance of Prestwick’s ever popular Town Centre.

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * A rare opportunity to purchase a Charming Traditional Flat enjoying an attractive open outlook, located centrally in Maybole, very convenient for both train & bus. This particular property occupies favoured upper position with shared close entrance (with “downstairs” neighbour) leading to an external stone staircase at the rear which leads to the main door entrance of this favoured upper position flat.
Most likely this “compact” home will be of particular appeal to the 1st-time or solo buyer, or perhaps those looking for a buy-to-let opportunity. A comfortable home to its owner over many years the property has undergone refurbishment internally which is not quite completed, hence the realistic price allows scope for the successful purchaser to complete the property to their own style/budget. Noting the property is offered For Sale “Sold as Seen".
It’s “cosy/compact” feel & layout are undoubtedly part of its charm with traditional exposed stone walls further enhancing its appeal. The main door entrance (“tired” front door) opens onto the entrance vestibule which in-turn leads onto the reception hall, the bedroom enjoys attractive open views to the front whilst to the rear, a separate living room with kitchen area incorporated (basic layout), an internal style bathroom is located off the hallway.
There is no fixed heating although the electricity supply will facilitate electric forms of heating. The current hot water supply is via an immersion heater with the hot water tank believed to be within the attic (to be confirmed). EPC – E. We understand that there may be share of a private garden area to the rear – however if so, details would have to be confirmed from the Title Plan, likewise whether the attic space is private to this flat. On-street parking is usually available.
Maybole has recently benefitted from the opening of the A77 Bypass which removed the heavy flow (at times) of traffic moving through the "town" centre. It is approx' 9 miles (15 - 20 mins) by car to Ayr. The A77 provides a convenient major road link north or south whilst the popular Galloway Forest/Dark Sky Park is approx' 10 miles away, the A75 from Girvan to Stranraer is approx' 13 miles away. This particular property benefits from charming open views to the park opposite whilst the train station is a very short walk enabling easy commuting.
In our view… an excellent opportunity to acquire a Charming “Compact” Flat with real character, with the realistic price allowing one to create their own Special Home.
