“Karuna”, Weir Avenue, Prestwick – A rare opportunity to acquire a most desirable Traditional Detached Bungalow within favoured Prestwick locale. Deceptive externally, the property has been professionally extended by its current owners in late 2019, with internal viewing revealing a delightful rear facing extension, L-shaped of open-plan style forming perhaps the new heart of this very comfortable home with the kitchen/dining & family room inviting one to relax & socially interact. This splendid home is of broad appeal, carefully maintained & upgraded with flexible 6/7 Main Apartment Accommodation featured over 2 levels. Set amidst neatly presented & colourful (when in season) landscaped gardens with the rear gardens in particular inviting one to enjoy the outdoors when the favourable weather beckons. 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. Homes of this style remain rare to the market and although of broad appeal are valued by family buyers, retired/semi clients and particularly so by 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. Internal viewing reveals a welcoming reception hall which leads onto the ground floor apartments which comprise, dual aspect formal lounge to the front, absolutely charming contemporary open-plan kitchen/dining/family room with triple window aspects, dual velux windows drawing natural overhead light and the picture style patio doors leading down to the mature gardens, 2 bedrooms (Nos 1 & 2 with No 2 used as a study at present) together with the main bathroom. A discreetly positioned staircase off the reception hall leads to the upper hallway which opens onto 2 further bedrooms (Nos 3 & 4) together with an upper shower room/wc serving either bedroom. The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC – D. Neatly presented private gardens are featured to the front and rear, reflecting the owners keen interest in same, the rear with sheltered patio area to welcome those wishing to relax outdoors. A narrow shared (with adjacent Bungalow) driveway is positioned to the right of the property, not suitable for a car however providing separate/convenient access from front to rear. Parking is available on-street.   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 Karuna is in some respects an understated home externally, open the door and one is met with a simply charming & comfortable home which can easily adapt its accommodation to meet the demanding family or a couple seeking space in which to relax. This is indeed a wonderful opportunity to acquire a very desirable Detached Bungalow which has been thoughtfully extended and will no doubt tick many of the Wish-List boxes of buyers hoping to secure their next home in the thriving coastal town of Prestwick. “

No 4 Greystones - A superb opportunity to acquire a Prestwick Promenade/Seafront Home, enjoying fabulous panoramic coastal/sea views with the Isles of Arran & Ailsa Craig on the horizon. Greystones was originally built, circa 1904, as a substantial Traditional Detached Sandstone Villa amidst a larger plot on the corner of Links Road/Ardayre Road with the West Elevation to the front enjoying panoramic sea views. Historically its former owners include Janie Allan (part of the successful Allan Shipping Line Family), notable for her strong involvement in the Scottish Womens Suffragette Movement which featured in the struggles of the early 20th Century. We understand that Greystones was the subject of a Residential Conversion in the 1960's, forming what we now see - 4   2-Storey Conversions. No 4 enjoys the favoured West Elevation capturing the wonderful seascape views from both its ground & upper front facing apartments. Undoubtedly the property will appeal to those clients seeking a seafront property, however although it does require modernisation, it offers the successful purchaser the opportunity to re-style/upgrade to their own specification/budget. The well proportioned accommodation is over 2 main levels with an undeveloped attic area perhaps offering further potential, subject to required planning permission etc. Access to the property is via a main door entrance from the promenade or shared access across the rear garden/pathway from the side (off Links Road) or the shared rear driveway (off Ardayre Road). A single garage to the rear is included together with a share of the communal rear gardens whilst the garden area directly in front facing the promenade is private to No 4. The ground floor comprises front & rear entrance hallways, spacious lounge/dining, separate living room (potential perhaps to open this room up with the adjoining kitchen - planning permission would be required), kitchen, useful understair wc, whilst on upper level, 4 bedrooms, shower room & separate wc. A floored/lined attic storage area is accessed via loft hatch located in bedroom No 1. The specification includes both gas central heating & double glazing. Off & On-street parking is available. The property is undoubtedly convenient for the adjacent sweeping promenade/seafront whilst the thriving Prestwick Town Centre provides a wide variety of amenities/shopping/public transport. In our view No 4 Greystones provides the successful purchaser with a very rare opportunity to a create a wonderful seafront home. Internal viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate both its potential & spectacular sea views. To arrange a Viewing Appointment please telephone BLACK HAY Estate Agents on 01292 283606. Outwith normal Office Hours our Call Centre is available 7 Days a Week on 0131 513 9477.

*NEW to Market - Available to View Now*  An excellent opportunity to acquire a continually sought after Semi Detached Bungalow within favoured Prestwick locale. Of broad appeal this neatly presented home has been a comfortable haven for its owners over many decades. The property is competitively priced to reflect that the successful purchaser will no doubt take the opportunity to modernise to their own style/budget.
