The first million pound plus home in Prestwick

There was, by miles, only one property to choose to feature this week.

 This is Prestwick’s most expensive ever home, on the market at offers over a cool £1,195,000.

The Beach House is simply spectacular, on a private rocky headland perched above the Firth and backed by St Nicholas Golf Course.

In the seven years I have been writing this column I have featured all sorts of quirky home features.

But never one with its own observatory, an angled glassy roost perched above the drawing room.

The perfect spot to watch the ships, seabirds and weather go by.

Agents Corum say of the house: “A once in a generation opportunity to acquire a very special home in the rarest of private sea front locations.”

Indeed it is, at the foot of quiet Maryborough Road in a little pocket of a few beachfront homes.

There are six bedrooms – two on the  ground floor – with some fine reception areas.

These include a hexagonal drawing room with a red sandstone feature fire surround, sitting room, dining room, conservatory and dining-sized kitchen.

 A handcrafted oak staircase leads to that observatory.

The Beach House spans 4,556.5 square feet and is an architectural one off, designed to take full advantage of the views.

The drawing room with its feature  wood ceiling is certainly the star attraction.

The bespoke kitchen is dining sized  and has French sea facing doors to access the broad expanse of lawn.

A wood-lined study with built in desk is like something out of a London gentlemens club – but with views over the waves.

The entrance behind high walls is via electric gates with landscaped turning circle leading to a double integral garage.

This area includes a sheltered timber patio deck, ideal when the wind is a bit blowy. A conservatory leads directly onto this area.

However the beach-side terrace boasts a fully enclosed Lexan wind break.

If you have got the cash be fast. Or there is also the next Lottery draw.
