ARDMORE, Prestwick. What a wonderful opportunity! …a chance to own a substantial Traditional Sandstone Semi Detached Villa enjoying a highly sought after “near seafront” location on Marina Road, literally moments walk from Prestwick’s sweeping promenade/seafront. Rarely available of this proportion, Ardmore features 7 Main Apartments over 2 levels, ideally suited to the family buyer seeking a character home which can accommodate a growing family, equally suited to those wishing more space in which to relax/entertain with the well proportioned accommodation over 2 levels offering flexibility of use.
Ardmore is attractively set amidst private landscaped gardens on a favourable corner site which provides a highly sought after driveway/garage. The rear gardens are particularly private/enclosed and a safe haven for children’s play or adults relaxing on those sought after sunny days. The sweeping seafront being literally 1 minute’s walk encourages one to explore/enjoy the magical attraction of Prestwick’s beach/seafront. Partial seascape views can be enjoyed from the “master” bedroom, across adjacent residence, with glimpses of the Isle of Arran on the horizon.
In particular the accommodation comprises, on ground floor, most welcoming reception hall (useful downstairs wc off), formal bay windowed lounge (currently this has been willingly surrendered to the owner’s children as their very own playroom), separate family/tv room, dining room, dining or breakfasting kitchen. An attractive bannister staircase rises from the reception hall, passing the half-level landing which features the main bathroom & bedroom No 4. Moving on to the upper hallway, 3 bedrooms are featured including the “master” bedroom with its elevated bay window views & a very stylish en-suite shower room/wc.

On-street parking is also available. Prestwick is very popular with its thriving town centre and coastline location, with Glasgow approx’ 30 miles away, hence Prestwick properties are popular with those commuting to Glasgow either by car (the A77 easily accessible from Prestwick) or by the popular train/bus service from Prestwick to Glasgow.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“ With over 33 years working in the property industry, that iconic phrase location, location & location ....is still what property professionals recall when describing one of the key factors about property ….location, location, location! Ardmore has the magic location factor, plus… substantial accommodation, private parking, enjoys a near seafront position, retains character/charm, is positioned in Prestwick - a sought after/thriving coastline town ….If you are reading this and want to buy/live in Prestwick, you probably already appreciate everything No 51 Marina Road has to offer...... In short, this is a wonderful opportunity! ....I need say no more. ”

*NEW to Market - Available to View Now* Doonvale Drive, Alloway – An excellent opportunity to acquire a desirable Modern Detached Villa by well regarded Stewart Milne Homes. This particular style “The Thorntonhall” featuring ideal family accommodation of 7/8 Main Apartments, noting that this is the original specification without the integral double garage having been converted – rather than apparently similar size homes which have sacrificed the double garage to extend their accommodation. The property enjoys an attractive setting within favoured residential development of mixed style modern family/executive homes on the outskirts of Ayr, itself on the South West Coast of Scotland.
Well proportioned apartments are featured over 2 levels, easily accommodating a growing family. Larger style Detached Villas are particularly popular with local buyers looking to upsize, with Glasgow buyers who continue to re-locate from city to the coast/seaside for a more relaxed lifestyle/work balance, whilst clients re-locating from England to Scotland remain strong contenders for larger modern luxury style homes. The well proportioned apartments are laid out over 2 levels, offering flexibility as required – normally utilised as 2/3 Public & 5 Bedrooms. If required, the integral double garage also allows further expansion within the footprint of the existing property (less expensive than add-on accommodation) – subject to required planning permission etc.
Internal viewing reveals a comfortable & adaptable family home, comprising on the ground floor, the reception hall with useful “downstairs” wc off, bay windowed lounge to the front with a separate dining room to the rear featuring connecting “French style” doors, also to the rear a semi open-plan style integrated kitchen/dining/breakfasting room (patio doors from here onto private rear gardens) with a useful separate utility room (access from here to the integral double garage).
All the bedrooms, easily accommodating a growing family, are featured on the upper level with a staircase from the reception hall leading to the upper hallway – the master bedroom (No 5) to the front with en-suite whilst bedroom No 1 (presently a large games room) is a large bedroom which could easily be utilised as a childrens living/games room or teenager’s bedroom/living room, 3 further bedrooms are located to the rear (Nos 2, 3 & 4) with bedroom No 2 featuring an en-suite. The main bathroom is also situated on the upper level.
The specification includes both gas central heating and double glazing. Private gardens are featured to the front & rear, neatly presented/landscaped with the rear fenced for privacy providing a safe/enclosed child-friendly play area or outdoor space in which to relax on better weather days. The private driveway provides off-street parking for several vehicles whilst also leading to a much-valued integral double garage which provides secure parking/storage. A wonderful Summer House is located within the rear garden allowing one to enjoy sheltered outdoor time, either to relax or entertain.
In our view… of huge appeal to those clients seeking a larger Modern Luxury Style Detached Home with the flexibility to accommodate an existing/growing family or provide more space in which to entertain/enjoy, support homeworking etc.
To discuss your interest in No 51 Doonvale Drive please contact Graeme Lumsden, our Director/Valuer, who is handling this particular sale – 01292 283606 or email@example.com Internal Viewing is invited by contacting BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS on 01292 283606.

This property has served its current owners as a comfortable family home with the twin level accommodation layout offering considerable flexibility – currently utilised as 3 Public/4 Bedrooms however it could revert to 2 Public/5 Bedrooms if required.
Typical modern/new build homes are often located within tightly packed residential developments which can often feel claustrophobic due to the lack of amenity or garden space. Bruach House nestles within attractive larger landscaped private gardens (noting the driveway has a right of access for the owner of the field & adjacent property), sloping down from the main roadway to the level area surrounding the property. The gardens will attract those wishing to potter or indeed relax whilst a family buyer will enjoy the outdoor area which children can enjoy. The river to the rear is on a lower level and is screened by hedging/mature trees etc.
In particular, the accommodation on the ground floor comprises, a striking reception hall …a fabulous feature when welcoming guests – the central stair rising to a very spacious upper hallway which offers an open “snug” area whilst also leading to the upper bedroom apartments, the most appealing lounge is accessed through twin doors from the reception hall, a useful family room (alt' 5th bedroom) is on the opposite side of the hallway with an en-suite bedroom (No 1) located adjacent, a stylish breakfasting/dining kitchen is very well appointed with access from here to a charming larger conservatory which can fairly be referred to/used as another public room, a utility room is also provided together with a useful downstairs wc.
The eye-catching staircase leads to the upper hallway/apartments which comprise – 3 further bedrooms (Nos 2, 3, & 4) with No 3 featuring an en-suite, whilst a useful additional room serves as an informal study (open stair from here to the attic). The family bathroom is situated off the upper hallway.
During their period of ownership the current owners have deliberately selected “eco” features when upgrading certain elements of their home – in particular solar panels (with a financial income – details upon request) together with the central heating which had been oil-fired however has now been replaced a very efficient “air-source” heat system (located externally to the rear). EPC – C. A substantial attic area offers excellent additional storage, accessed via ladder style stair within the upper study. The picturesque gardens that surround the property are a valued additional feature providing privacy and welcome outdoor space in which to relax on the best of days. A tarmacadam driveway leads down from the main road to the front of the property with parking available for several vehicles whilst a detached double garage provides secure parking/storage.
The expansive Ayrshire Countryside surrounds Catrine. Commuting from Bruach House – Ayr & Prestwick are approx’ a 25 minute journey by car whilst Glasgow is approx’ 45 minutes.

Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY ESTATE AGENTS comments…
“ This superb Family Home will be of particular appeal to the client seeking a larger luxury-style home in a picturesque setting with space in which to relax indoors & out …rather than returning home to a typical tightly packed modern development where the builder’s focus was simply to maximise the number of homes built on the available land.
Bruach House amidst its delightful setting will welcome its owners at the end of the working day …and bring a genuine sense of contentment as there is real space in which to breathe/live. “

“ALDERBANK”, Doonfoot – A Charming Traditional Detached Cottage Style Home set amidst larger mature private gardens, within admired residential locale. Historically believed to be the site of one of the earliest built properties locally (however this is based on 3rd party information). The current owners have been resident for approx’ 30 years during which time they have upgraded/extended the property. It is fair to say that the successful purchaser will modernise the property however the competitive price allows scope to upgrade/re-style to your own taste/budget.
ALDERBANK is discreetly positioned on Scaur O’ Doon Road, well screened from the roadway by hedging/fencing with a pedestrian gate to the front whilst a gated driveway provides vehicular access to the rear. The mature gardens are of larger size, undoubtedly an attractive feature of the property, albeit some attention is required to these. Woodland area to the far side slopes down to the River Doon.
Internal viewing reveals a cosy home retaining it’s Cottage Style character with accommodation featured over 2 levels, comprising 7 Main Apartments. In particular, on the ground floor, entrance vestibule leads onto the reception hall which provides access to ground floor apartments whilst a staircase to the rear leads to the upper apartments, spacious lounge with most attractive sun room overlooking private front gardens, breakfasting kitchen leads onto larger size conservatory styled dining room (noting this is slate roofed to match the main house), two bedrooms, “downstairs” wc. On upper level, 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom (noted coombed ceiling upstairs). A small attached garage has integral access through a store room (just off bedroom No 1).
The specification includes gas central heating & double glazing. EPC – E. Generous mature gardens are a feature of the property encouraging fantastic enclosed family use or offering the keen gardener/bird lover the opportunity to create a picturesque haven. The detached garage to the rear has been removed however there remains ample space to build a garage/store (subject to any required planning permission) whilst the gated driveway offers further private parking.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“I live on the edge of The Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, so I’m used to being surrounded by nature. When I first walked into the gardens of ALDERBANK it just seemed to be a delightful sheltered natural haven, one in which to relax, whether at the end of a busy day or as part of a gentle retirement. Yes, it needs work done. Yes, the gardens need work. However, as an Antique Dealer friend of mine often says – find me another! I think the successful buyer secures the opportunity to develop their own haven, yet it’s not miles away in the countryside (as I am, commuting 90 miles each day to/from work) …..and don’t forget, the sweeping promenade/seafront is only a short walk away.”

"Annfield Cottage & The Byre" - No 6 Belston Holdings - A fabulous opportunity to acquire a Unique Property comprising a superbly presented Detached Cottage Style Bungalow with stylish Annexe adjacent, both enjoying wonderful elevated views across the Ayrshire Countryside.
Belston Holdings is a small collection of 6 original homes (plus 1 New-Build), enjoying an elevated position off the A70 (which leads to Coylton & beyond) approx. 3 miles from Ayr (just a few minutes journey to the A77 which skirts the edge of Ayr Town). Historically the properties are believed to have been part of Auchincruive Estate with No 6 believed to date from circa 1930's, currently most of these individual homes have been re-styled or developed by their successive owners.
No 6 reflects the extensive input/expense over a 10 year period by its current owners with internal viewing essential to appreciate its enviable location/views, charming accommodation together with its attractive Annexe, converted from the original Stables by the owners to provide independent accommodation - clearly this offers flexibility of use for the successful purchaser whether as extended accommodation, perhaps as a self-contained "Granny" Cottage, separate Home Office literally a few steps from the main house or a Studio for those with an artistic background. Of course, there is also potential as Holiday or Letting accommodation for additional income (subject to any required permissions including any potential Mortgage Lender).
The Main Home "Annfield Cottage" is a most appealing Detached Bungalow which is deceptive when viewed externally from its rear facing approach along the country style single track road (well maintained/tarmacadam - shared ownership/maintenance), to the front the property enjoys picturesque countryside views with the wonderful larger conservatory commanding the best views. The accommodation comprises, reception hall, lounge with solid fuel stove style fire, the aforementioned conservatory which is a wonderfully inviting focal point, an open-plan dining kitchen with most useful separate utility room off, 3 comfortable bedrooms together with a stylish 4-piece bathroom.
The Annexe - "The Byre" is currently assessed as additional accommodation with its own private entrance onto the neatly presented accommodation comprising, small kitchenette, spacious lounge, separate bedroom & stylish shower room/wc.
Generally, the specification includes gas central heating in Annfield Cottage, electric heating in The Byre (The Annexe) and double glazing in both. Solar panels have been added to the Annexe. EPC - B.
Both properties feature private gated entrances with space for vehicular parking whilst a garage with very useful store is also included, attached to the Annexe. Charming landscaped gardens extend around the Bungalow and Annexe, these reflecting the owners keen interest in same, neatly presented, mature with a good variety of trees/shrubs/flowers/lawned areas/hedging/boundary fencing - the gardens allowing private outdoor space for occupiers of both the Bungalow & Annexe. In addition, the private gardens mostly overlook adjoining fields with panoramic countryside views. Services include mains power, water (note the water pipework from the A70 is privately maintained, cost shared by respective owners) and gas supply whilst a private septic tank is conveniently located with the property boundaries.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments -
" One could say that I am biased towards Country Living as that's where I have lived for many years, however rather than me telling you why No 6 Belston Holdings may well be your Dream Home I simply suggest that you view it …make your own mind up.
In my view, No 6 has many of the wonderful aspects of country living but without the 90 plus daily commute that I have from my home in Galloway. The successful purchaser will enjoy Country Living just a few minutes drive from Ayr/the A77. A Cottage Style Bungalow, an Annexe (The Byre), the very picturesque Ayrshire Countryside, a short commute to Ayr …that's just a few of its very appealing positives.
It's a Special Home and I envisage the very lucky new owners settling in on their first evening and realising that they are indeed living their dream! "

A superb Detached Family Home, situated within favoured Alloway residential locale, set amidst landscaped private gardens. This most appealing home has been re-styled/professionally extended by its present owners at considerable expense, now featuring 6/7 Main Apartments over 2 levels, ideally suited for family use.

Of undoubted appeal is the fabulous contemporary extension which provides a real family heart to this particular home, together with the benefit that one can move in and enjoy a contemporary family lifestyle from Day 1, rather than having to make plans/finance and endure the build of a large extension.

The present owners have extensively refurbished the property at substantial expense creating the fabulous Family Home that we see with "Strathken" whilst the Attached Cottage has been carefully re-developed to provide, in this instance, the opportunity to utilise as a successful Holiday Cottage (see Visitor Book comments).
Although The Cottage has its own independent entrance/garden/kitchen etc, it is linked internally and can easily be brought back into the main accommodation creating a 6 Bedroom Home with multiple public rooms. Its flexibility will also appeal to the buyer perhaps seeking "Granny" style accommodation which combines security/independence or for those wishing to work from home or have independent "teenager" accommodation.
Internal viewing of Strathken reveals a most appealing home of 7/8 main Apartments over 2 levels which has been extensively refurbished (only requiring minor finishing). In particular the well proportioned accommodation comprises on ground floor, reception hall, attractive lounge (featuring solid fuel fire) and separate dining room, a "dream" open-plan living/dining/kitchen which is simply breathtaking and demands attention with its scale/extensive glazing/views, a useful utility room & "downstairs" wc are also provided and there is internal access to/from The Cottage (via the utility).

The Cottage's specification includes both oil central heating and double glazing. EPC - to be confirmed. As noted there is a private garden area which is separated from the adjoining Strathken.
Dumfries & Galloway is picturesque in terms of its rolling countryside, the A75 serving as its main transport link south & north. Strathken itself By Crossmichael, and is approx' 4.5 miles from Castle Douglas which is very popular, being notable as a "Food Town" whilst the picturesque small harbour town of Kirkcudbright is particularly appealing, approx' 11 miles.
In our view an excellent opportunity to acquire a Unique Home with true flexibility. Internal Viewing will confirm its appeal and particular highlights such as the eyecatching living/dining/kitchen of Strathken whilst the most appealing Cottage offers flexible "additional" accommodation, or the opportunity to secure additional income from an easily managed attached property which is literally "next door".
