Property prices in Largs and the surrounding area are still proving buoyant, according to newly-released figures.

The ever popular seafront view is proving to be a popular draw despite concerns last year that property prices could see a dip.

According to figures provided by ESPC, a property at Sandringham, close to Largs town centre, sold for £175,000 just before Christmas, having changed hands for £91,567 in July 2020 - an increase of 97 per cent.

Meanwhile, a property in the town's Raillies Avenue, having fetched £118,000 when it was last put on the market in 2014, brought in £205,000 for its owners when it was sold in December, a rise of more than 73 per cent.

And the trend is evident with smaller properties in the town, too. 

In Seamore Street, a flat which sold for £25,000 in 2017 was purchased for £55,000 in December - an increase of 120 per cent.


A flat close to the town centre in Frazer Street also doubled in price, from £51,000 to £103,500, and a property in John Clark Street was sold for £105,000, compared to £75,225 in 2020.

Sea views are also proving an irresistible attraction in Millport, with a house in Marine Parade increasing in value by 44 per cent, from £85,000 in 2021 to £150,000 when it sold last year.

But one of the area's biggest increases was at a property in St Maura's Gardens, also in Millport, which has seen its value jump from £40,000 to £320,000 - a leap of 700 per cent, albeit over a much longer time period of 17 years, from 2006 to 2023.

Fairlie, too, has seen some significant rises in property prices, with two properties in Marine Court showing substantial increases - one from £130,000 in 2018 to £185,000 in 2023, and another from £160,000 in 2021 to £221,607 last year.

A property in The Causeway sold for £70,000 in September 2017, according to the figures, before changing hands for £160,000 last year, a rise of 57 per cent.


Meanwhile, a property in Shuma Court in Skelmorlie which sold for £107,000 in  2019 went for £200,000 in November 2023.
