"CRAIGOWER", Prestwick. A rare opportunity to acquire a highly desirable larger proportioned Traditional Sandstone Semi Detached Villa enjoying a sought after "near seafront" location on Marina Road, literally moments walk from Prestwick's sweeping promenade/seafront. Substantial traditional homes of this style remain rare to the market and are particularly valued by family buyers and Glasgow based buyers seeking a change of lifestyle from city to seaside.
Rarely available of this proportion, "Craigower" retains considerable character with the spacious apartments throughout being of immense appeal, easily accommodating a growing family, or equally suited to those wishing more space in which to relax/entertain. The property has served its current owners as a comfortable family home and the opportunity exists for the successful purchaser to re-style to suit their own taste/budget with the 3 level accommodation layout offering flexibility - currently utilised as 3 Public/4 Bedrooms however can revert to 2 Public/5 Bedrooms (the room not pictured is used as a temporary home office/study).
The property stands neatly on Marina Road with its painted stone front, pebbled gardens and driveway which leads to an attached angular garage (noting its angular shape will limit vehicle use however its "tandem" style offers superb extended storage). To the rear, twin paved patio areas sit adjacent to an enclosed lawned garden in which to relax or let children play securely. 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 bay windowed upper "master" bedroom (No 1), across adjacent residence, with glimpses of the Isle of Arran on the horizon.
In particular the accommodation comprises, on ground floor, most welcoming character reception hall (cloakroom off), formal bay windowed lounge, separate dining/family room, breakfasting kitchen with open utility area and short hallway to rear door (useful wc off), a 3rd public room nestles between the lounge & dining/family rooms - offering flexibility of use. A fine period bannister staircase rises from the reception hall, passing the half-level landing which features a stylish modern main bathroom & spacious bedroom No 4 (presently undecorated awaiting decorator). Moving on to the upper hallway, 3 bedrooms are featured including the "master" bedroom with its elevated bay window views, noting that bedroom No 3 has a useful corner shower cubicle and vanity/wash-hand basin allowing semi en-suite style use. Excellent attic storage is provided. Both gas central heating & double glazing are featured. EPC - E. On-street parking is also available.
Prestwick is very popular with its thriving town centre and coastal location. With Glasgow approx' 30 miles away Prestwick properties are particularly popular with Glasgow based buyers relocating (knowing the value of these style of homes in Glasgow!) ...those commuting to Glasgow either by car (the A77 easily accessible from Prestwick) or by the popular train/bus service from Prestwick to Glasgow ...and of course local buyers seeking to move nearer to the seafront & requiring a larger family proportioned home.
Graeme Lumsden, Director/Valuer of BLACK HAY Estate Agents comments...
" With 35 years working in the property industry across Scotland, that iconic phrase location, location & location remains one of the key desirability factors. In addition, post-lockdown has delivered a notable increase in buyers seeking a more relaxed style of living, work/life balance and who value highly the magic ingredient of a near-seafront location.
Craigower ticks so many boxes for a wide variety of buyers - its desirable location with partial sea view, plus ...substantial accommodation, private parking, character/charm, being located in Prestwick which is undoubtedly a sought after & thriving coastal town.
If you are reading this and want to buy/live in Prestwick then you probably already appreciate everything Craigower has to offer ...and no doubt you also appreciate this is indeed a wonderful opportunity. The successful buyer will surely enjoy celebrating when they collect their keys on removal day ...when their dream becomes reality."
