Property Summary

* NEW to Market - Available to View Soon * In every sense, an opportunity for the enthusiastic DIY’er or professional… “Laurels” is a formerly Charming Traditional Detached Cottage, of Red Sandstone finish …which although having been a comfortable home to its owner over previous years, the very competitive price signals that it now requires extensive modernisation, some of which is detailed in the Home Report (available to view exclusively on our website only). The property sits amidst private corner gardens which again require attention. Parking is available on-street.

Its position is favourable with a mix of New Homes to the rear whilst elsewhere there are well established traditional homes of varying style/size, an appealing countryside backdrop also sits on the rear horizon, whilst walking approx’ ½ mile from the property one can enjoy elevated views across the fields to the Firth of Clyde.

The property is accessed via a main door entrance to the front (noting there is only a single entrance/exit) whilst the accommodation which is all on-the-level comprises, L-shaped reception hall, good sized lounge with solid fuel fireplace (not tested), two bedrooms, a separate kitchen, bathroom & wc closet – all of which require re-fitment. Heating is by electric (again untested).

Despite the extensive works required there is a clear opportunity for the successful purchaser to create a home to suit their style/specification, hopefully enhancing its future value. It is fair to say the property will perhaps be of particular appeal to those clients seeking a “project” whether utilising their DIY skills or employing their own professional skills or relevant trades to carry out upgrading works.

The Home Report Mortgage Valuation is £90,000 in its current condition, the report gives a clear indication of the current condition/likely works required, noting the property is offered for sale at Offers Over £75,000 – Sold as Seen, with no guarantees or warranties.

“Every picture tells a story”, so the saying goes …”Laurels” is certainly presented in “Before” condition however it is only fair to reflect on its potential/favoured location and how the “After” pictures might look. The property will perhaps be of particular appeal to those clients seeking a “project” whether utilising their DIY skills or employing relevant trades to carry out upgrading works. Equally of broad appeal, whether as 1st Home or for the retired/semi-retired client or as a “bolt-hole”/holiday home.

At the indicated price this is undoubtedly an excellent opportunity however please only view having taken into account the information provided here and in the Home Report. Serious potential purchasers are welcome to discuss matters in more detail with our Director/Valuer Graeme Lumsden on 01292 283606.
