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.

With its own private main door entrance to the front and a small private garden area to the rear, this charming home is of broad appeal, whether as main residence, holiday “bolthole” (which it has been for the current owner) or perhaps the buy-to-let/air bnb investor seeking an investment property for both income & potential capital growth. Very convenient for access to Ayr Town Centre or within walking distance of Ayr's sweeping promenade/seafront.

Much valued character is retained with traditional features including cornicing & fine panelled apartment doors.
