* NEW to Market - Available to View Now * “ Firbrae ” - A charming Character Home enjoying prime seafront position on Troon’s prestigious South Beach. This Traditional Detached Sandstone Home is believed to originally date circa early 19th Century, of immense appeal with its distinctive Tudor-Gothic architectural details, generous array of 11/12 main apartment accommodation over 2 levels, all set amidst a larger plot adjacent to Troon’s sweeping beachfront.
A very comfortable home to its current owner since the mid 1950’s, noting that during their ownership the property was a combination of Doctor’s Surgery and private home. Although a much loved home over the years it is fair to say that it does now need modernisation (noting that the property is offered For Sale "Sold as Seen"). However, for the successful purchaser it is a wonderful opportunity to secure a unique property with real potential to create a spectacular seafront home.
Set amidst a larger plot/gardens, with tarmacadam “horseshoe” style driveway to the front (facing South Beach road) whilst to the rear larger size lawned gardens, enclosed with stone boundary wall and gate to rear leading to the beachfront. The extended rear garden area provides excellent scope to develop the property further, subject to required planning permission etc.
The accommodation comprises on ground floor, 3/4 public rooms, 4 bedrooms (Nos 1 to 4), kitchen, utility, sun room & downstairs wc. A discrete staircase from the reception hall leads to the upper level which features 4 further bedrooms (Nos 5 to 8), a small boxroom and the main bathroom.
Partial electric heating is featured. EPC - G. The hardstanding driveway to the front provides private parking whilst also providing access to a garage to the side. On-street parking is also available. The larger lawned rear gardens are enclosed with a period stone boundary wall for privacy whilst a rear gate allows easy access to the beach/seafront.
Firbrae occupies a truly favoured position within highly regarded South Beach, Troon, a most desirable "Seaside Town" with its own marina, on Ayrshire's sweeping coastline, itself notable for its world renowned golf courses. Troon is of broad appeal, popular with locals and commuters alike, Glasgow Buyers particularly favouring its wonderful seafront location whilst being only approx' 35 minutes commute by car from Glasgow City Centre (both train & bus services aid those commuting) whilst Edinburgh/East Coast Buyers favour the better weather of Troon on the West Coast.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments…
“After nearly 4 decades in the property industry I still marvel at the sheer joy of owning a seafront home.
I live in the countryside and enjoy the seasons changing around me however in my heart it is a seafront home with its seascape changing by the minute that is my dream home and indeed the dream home of so many.
Firbrae has clearly been a much loved family home, of substantial proportion (circa 2800 sq ft) with an abundance of character & charm …enjoying a truly sought after beach/seafront location.
Undoubtedly the successful purchaser will have to spend a considerable sum to deliver their very special Dream Home however the end result will easily justify the hard work/financial commitment …when one settles down knowing that the beach/seafront is indeed literally a stone’s throw away, instead of loading up your car to go to the beach, it’s there every day when you wake up. “
