Main Street, Prestwick, KA9 1NXSeptember 1, 2023 9:00 am
* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * These well presented former Offices are sited within an attractive Traditional Sandstone fronted Building sited above commercial premises on Prestwick’s thriving main street/town centre. With a central security door entry (between the ground floor premises), an internal staircase leads to the upper landing off which a private main door provides access into the main reception hall. The current layout/accommodation comprises 5 main apartments, in particular 2 separate bay windowed rooms (Nos 1 & 3) to the front with a further central room (No 2), whilst to the rear, 2 further rooms (Nos 4 & 5) plus a small kitchenette & bathroom. The specification includes gas central heating. Attic storage is available and we understand that the attic level/area may well be private to this flat however potential buyers are advised to confirm the legal position (regarding the attic) with their solicitor. The “status” of the attic area does not form part of the value of the property at this time. The apportionment of common charges shared between the building’s owners (or tenants) is still to be formally confirmed. Internal viewing confirms both the well proportioned rooms/apartments together with the high standard of presentation. We are advised by the owner/seller that preliminary discussions with South Ayrshire Council were positive regarding the possibility of “Change of Use” to residential (from office use) however at this early stage there is no formal confirmation therefore the property is “Sold as Seen” with the value reflecting its current office use status. Prestwick remains Ayrshire’s “property hotspot”, with its well established mixed main street shopping/restaurants/amenities, whilst the delightful/sweeping promenade & seafront are within walking distance. Public transport includes bus & train. Prestwick Airport is nearby whilst the property is also convenient for access to the A77/A78. Of broad appeal… from a commercial perspective one can see the success of the town centre with a high percentage of occupied premises whilst from a residential perspective Prestwick is valued by local buyers 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. In our view, this well presented property is appealing both in its current format for business use or offers flexibility of use, subject to formal confirmation with South Ayrshire Council. In addition there is perhaps a thought towards change of use to residential in which case that will attract a different type of buyer, however South Ayrshire Council would need to approve residential use.
