* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * 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 that individual flat style remains the same today.
Access to No 7 is by way of its private driveway to the left hand side, this leading to its own private main door porch entrance, whilst access continues to the small rear garden & shared drying area. Importantly, the entire front garden area is believed to be 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 off 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 – Tbc. Private gardens are situated to the front & rear, noting that the rear garden is smaller (a shared drying area – with the owner of the upper flat, is accessed adjacent). 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 much 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.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments… “ After 35 Years in the property industry I’m still as excited by the property market as I was from Day 1. Originally from Glasgow’s West End I fully appreciate the opportunity that No 7 The Crescent offers – a very substantial almost conversion style home, yet actually an original as-built Traditional Character Flat occupying the entire ground floor of a Charming Detached Villa.
Purchasing a home in Prestwick positively encourages one to embrace seaside living, making the most of walking the promenade with its spectacular panoramic sea views …whether waves are just gently rippling ashore or on wild winter days the white-horses race off the sea to douse beach/promenade walkers with sea spray.
The canny Glaswegian in me keeps ticking all the positive boxes when looking at this splendid home …the location, style, size, flexibility, potential, character/charm, convenience, commuting …and it all comes with that magical attraction of the seaside …not getting in the car to travel to the seaside …simply walking out of your front door and within a few minutes you are at the seaside. This Glaswegian says …save yourself several hundred thousand pounds and buy this wonderful home in Prestwick …and on your commute to Glasgow …smile contently knowing you’ve swapped the city for the seaside. ”
