The development is professionally managed with the appointed factors ensuring consistent presentation/maintenance which is clearly evident as one enters the grounds of Fairfield Park. Entry is via a communal main door security entrance which leads onto a welcoming & notably more spacious (than typical new-build developments today) residents reception hall with either stair or elevator access to the equally spacious 2nd floor communal hallway, off which No 67 is accessed. Internal viewing reveals a pleasingly well proportioned/flexible home with the larger windows attracting both natural light & attractive views, In particular a lengthy reception hall (with good storage off, a stylish additional wc & a welcome fitted utility room) provides access onto the remaining apartments, comprising – a most appealing lounge with dual aspects & a private sheltered balcony which invites one to step outdoors & enjoy the wonderful sea views, a very stylish professionally re-fitted open-plan dining kitchen features an extensive array of high quality base/wall kitchen cabinets complemented by feature worktops & integrated appliances whilst adjacent is a formally separate dining room (previously a 4th bedroom), three further spacious double bedrooms are featured with stylish re-fitted wardrobe storage whilst a most appealing “glossy magazine” style main bathroom features white 2 piece fitments within vanity storage together & large walk-in shower cubicle.

Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments… “ Notwithstanding my 36 Years in the Property Industry and the thousands of properties sold on behalf of my clients ...I have also been fortunate to own/live in quite an array of different properties/locations over the years however Fairfield Park reminds me of Luxury Style Flats in Glasgow where I happily lived for a number of years. The external space of this development one would rarely witness today on similar New-Build Flats as the developers/builders simply cannot resist the lure of profit/more properties versus the unseen value that comes with living amidst a development that actually breathes because of the space in which it is set. Add to that an elevator & the magical sea view aspects (neither of which I had in Glasgow), encouraging one to embrace promenade walks on the best of days or wrap up for those bracing autumn/winter walks where one leans into the wind & rain yet enjoys the exhilaration that only a wild sea can deliver. In my view, No 67 Fairfield Park is an outstanding sea view home, of very rare 5 Main Apartment style, with its high quality/bespoke interior absolutely ready to move-in and embrace its new owners, offering the many benefits & welcome convenience that flat living provides …and when the New Owners want to do something else, simply lock up & leave …that’s the magic of flat living! ”
