The successful purchaser will perhaps wish to restyle to their own taste/budget however the competitive price allows scope to create your own special home with a spectacular sea view. Generally the property is entered from the rear elevation which faces onto the easily missed Bellfield Lane, just off Marina Road however the main door entrance to the front provides instant access to Prestwick's sweeping promenade/seafront and those fabulous views. A much valued private parking space together with a double garage are included with the sale, both located to the rear, either side of the rear entrance gate. In particular the most appealing & well proportioned accommodation comprises on ground floor, a welcoming reception hall, an impressive bay windowed lounge from which to enjoy the seafront views, a centrally positioned dining/kitchen - well equipped with integrated appliances, to the rear a most useful family/living room with patio doors serving as entrance to/from the rear garden (perhaps one could envisage a rear entrance porch being added here in the future to provide a designated rear entrance hall/porch - subject to planning permission being obtained). A charming period staircase provides access to the upper level, initially a half-landing leads to an attractive rear facing 4th bedroom and a very stylish modern 4 piece bathroom, whilst the main upper hallway features 3 bedrooms - Nos 1 & 2 seafront facing with the "master" No 1 commanding breathtaking elevated views from its 3 frame dormer window. Bedroom No 3 is also of double proportion and is rear facing. 3 of the 4 bedrooms are of spacious double proportion. The specification includes both gas central heating & double glazing. EPC - E. Private gardens are situated to the front and rear, the front with gate onto the promenade whilst the rear is enclosed for privacy with mixed shrubs/flowers and good seating areas. The rear gate opens onto Bellfield Lane (a T-shaped cul de sac lane). Of the 2 parking spaces when one views the property from the rear No 23 retains the right hand space together with the double garage to the left hand side (adjacent to No 23A which was formerly part of No 23 - noting from the front elevation, the single storey link to the right is not part of this property, it is No 23A and is not part of this property sale). Prestwick's thriving Town Centre remains a strong reason for its popularity with homeowners and visitors whilst the sweeping promenade/seafront views have a magnetic appeal. Prestwick Airport, the A79 & A77 are easily accessible whilst the popular train & bus service provide Glasgow bound commuters with easy public transport links. Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments - " After 30 years in the property industry I still enjoy the many varied property styles and locations which I visit daily as part of my job as an estate agent. Personally I live in the country however I have always said that if I move it would only be for a sea view. For myself, and many, many others the magic of a sea view remains its ever changing texture/colour/light - never mind the seasons or a particular month or week ….daily and almost by the minute the sea can change from mirror flat calm to gentle ripples, rhythmic waves to racing white horses galloping to the shore on stormy days. The countryside changes by the season, the sea changes by the hour. No 23 is a superb seafront family home that can entertain on its own however adding in that magical sea view elevates its appeal immensely. Imagine what a New Home builder would price this property at if they built it today? However in simple terms it comes down to those that seek a true seafront home and value the exceptional qualities of this location and of No 23 itself. It's a Special Home and I have no doubt that the very lucky new owners will settle down on their first evening, soak in the spectacular seafront views and realise that they are indeed living their dream!

Prestwick, Douglas Avenue, KA9 1SB

* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * Seldom available within favoured Prestwick locale, convenient easy walking distance of the seafront/promenade, No 10 Douglas Avenue has been a much-loved family home over decades, with the opportunity now for a new owner to acquire their next home to take them through their future years, whether with family or not. An attractively styled Traditional Semi Detached Villa externally, internally featuring 5 well proportioned/flexible apartments over 2 levels with the undeveloped attic perhaps beckoning further development potential, noting similar properties nearby and their individual attic developments (subject of course to acquiring planning permission etc). 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. Traditional Homes remain ever popular, of broad appeal and valued locally by family, professionals and retired/semi retired clients whilst further afield they attract 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. A very comfortable home to its family over many years. Internal viewing reveals a flexible layout of well proportioned accommodation comprising on ground floor, a welcoming reception hall with staircase to the side (with a useful “downstairs” wc adjacent) leading to the upper level, a most appealing formal bay windowed lounge to the front with equally spacious dining/family room directly behind – this could be a 4th bedroom, if required, whilst a separate “L-shaped Galley Style” kitchen wraps around partially to the rear with access onto the gardens from here. On the upper level a bay windowed “master” double bedroom (No 1) to the front enjoys attractive sea views on the skyline with the golf course just beyond the adjacent newer build properties, bedroom No 3 directly behind is again of spacious proportion, whilst the smaller bedroom No 2 is also situated to the front, the main bathroom is located off the upper hall to the rear. The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. EPC – D. Neatly presented mature private gardens are located to the front & rear, whilst a private gated driveway provides off-street parking and leads to a detached garage positioned to the rear. On-street parking is also available nearby. In our view, a rare opportunity to acquire a well proportioned desirable home which invites one to ponder …whether to switch the lounge to upstairs to enjoy those fantastic elevated views, use the existing lounge as a family/dining room and the remaining rooms serve as bedrooms over 2 levels …with the undeveloped attic tweaking one’s attention as to what it could be (subject to that planning permission of course). No doubt this Charming Home will attract interest whether in its current format or for the potential that it offers… To view, please telephone BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS direct on 01292 283606.
