Property Summary

No 7 The Crescent - A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial 6 Main Apartment Traditional Flat which forms the entire Ground Floor of a charming Detached Red Sandstone Villa, itself within most favoured horseshoe style crescent near to Prestwick Cross. Externally the property initially appears to be a pair of Semi Detached Villas however we understand from the owners that is it believed to have been originally built as separate ground & upper flats (perhaps more visually reminiscent of a upper & lower conversion) and remaining the same style today.

Access is by way of a private driveway to the left hand side, with private main door porch entrance. The side pathway also leads to the private rear garden which extends across the rear with internal access from the kitchen. Two useful attached outhouses provide valued external storage space. We understand the entire front garden area is wholly owned by the ground floor flat (exact details/boundaries to be confirmed from the title deeds).

Entering through the private porch, the main door opens onto a lengthy reception hall with on-the-level apartments comprising, a most appealing bay windowed lounge to the front with garden/crescent views,  a separate dining room to the side/rear which leads onto a modern style rear facing kitchen (door to garden), bedroom Nos 1 & 2 are located to the front whilst Nos 3 & 4 are located to the rear, with the bathroom situated midway off the reception hall.

The specification includes both gas central heating & double glazing. EPC - D. Private gardens are situated to the front & rear with the rear providing much valued private outdoor space. The private driveway provides off-crescent parking.

The property was purchased by its most recent owner as both their private home & to function as a guest house which it did so until the owner latterly retired from business and lived comfortably in this substantial yet very flexible home. The competitive price allows scope for the successful purchase to modernise to their own style/budget and the 6 Main Apartments are entirely flexible, perhaps serving as a family home or for a couple looking for space to relax/entertain and perhaps work from home.

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 Style Homes remain in demand, of broad appeal and valued by local homebuyers whilst further afield this particular style of home tends to attract Glasgow based buyers who are seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside ...and a better work/life balance. Interestingly a similar size of traditional flat in Glasgow's West End will easily exceed £500,000 ...yet Prestwick provides that magical by-the-seaside location, with easy commuting to/from Glasgow. Homemovers relocating from South of the Border continue to seek out coastal locations/properties with the attraction of added "value for money" in relocating from south to north.
