Situated in the very heart of picturesque Brodick, this two-bedroom, double upper flat enjoys a spectacular beachfront position on the Isle of Arran, offering stunning panoramic views of Brodick Bay to the distinctive peak of Goatfell mountain.
Furthermore, this charming first/second-floor flat is part of a historic villa built in 1816, which was reputedly a holiday home for the First Lord Kelvin, an eminent nineteenth century scientist known for inventing the international system of absolute temperature which bears his name. With its highly desirable location, the property remains a superb holiday home, whether as a second property or for the rental market, and thanks to its excellent starting price it is also ideal for first-time buyers.
Accessed via a secure shared entrance and stairway, the flat’s front door opens to a central hall that flows into the living room. Here, there is floorspace for a choice of relaxing lounge furniture, with the neutral décor and snug carpet enhancing an airy ambience. The room is finished by a shelved recess and a window that frames sublime views over the beach to Goatfell.
Next door, the dining room shares the same awe-inspiring outlook, offering versatile dimensions for alternate use as a second bedroom. In the wellappointed breakfasting kitchen, white cabinets and black granite-style worktops provide ample storage and workspace, housing an integrated oven and ceramic hob, with space for an undercounter fridge, dishwasher, and washing machine. A bright three-piece shower room, enveloped in metro-style tiles, completes the first floor.
Upstairs leads to the timber-clad second floor, where there is built-in storage, a private study with open wardrobe fixtures, and the flat’s main bedroom, which is a well proportioned double supplemented by a built-in wardrobe.
The property has electric heating, double glazing, and skylights. According to the seller, the front and rear pitches of the roof were replaced in 2015. Outside, the flat provides unfettered access to all Brodick has to offer, including the beach, idyllic coastal walks, and the surrounding countryside. Ample on-street parking and a car park opposite are also available.
Please note: Some of the rooms in the property have been virtually staged from actual photographs of the rooms.
Brodick, Isle of Arran
Castleview is located in the heart of Brodick on the beautiful Isle of Arran. The Isle of Arran
(aka “Scotland in Miniature”) has everything to offer – a welcoming community, forest trails and mountain peaks, sheltered beaches, and a vast range of local heritage, crafts and produce.
Brodick, Arran’s capital, has two Co-op supermarkets, a great selection of individual shops, restaurants, cafés and a full range of services including a primary school, nursery, library and medical centre. Brodick hosts the island’s main ferry terminal from which there are regular sailings throughout the day, serviced by Caledonian MacBrayne, to the mainland at Ardrossan.
Commuters and travellers now benefit from Road Equivalent Tariff (RET) ferry fares. The port of Ardrossan has a mainline rail station, with direct trains to Glasgow that connect with the ferry times, and is approximately 30 miles from Glasgow City Centre. Prestwick International Airport is 16 miles to the south of Ardrossan, with Glasgow International Airport 24 miles east of Ardrossan.
The village of Lamlash, only a short drive from Brodick, is home to the Island’s High School and hospital. It also offers a range of shops, restaurants and cafés. A frequent bus service runs around and across the island and, at Lochranza, there is a ferry terminal that allows quick access to the stunning West of Scotland via Claonaig. Kintyre here we come!
