Within strolling distance of the beach, this traditional semi-detached villa is located on a leafy residential street in a sought-after district of Ayr, enjoying easy access to fabulous local amenities, reputable schooling, and excellent commuter links.
Brimming with excellent potential and versatility, the appealing home represents an exciting opportunity for modernisation and further development, boasting three main bedrooms (plus a floored attic room), two reception rooms, and an extensive floored loft, in addition to an enclosed garden and a detached single garage.
On stepping through the front door, a vestibule opens into a welcoming hall (with storage), resplendent with wood-panelled walls, exposed ceiling beams, and traditional tartan carpeting. It sets the scene for the wonderful proportions and homely feel of the accommodation to follow. On your left is the living room, which is flooded with natural light from a south-westerly facing bay window. The room displays a number of charming details, including a feature stained-glass window, a traditional alcove, and a high ceiling with smooth coving work. A focal point fireplace creates a cosy ambience, whilst a broad footprint allows for a generous arrangement of lounge furniture. Enjoying delightful rear garden views is the dining room. Also enhanced by a feature fireplace, this second reception room provides space for a large table, as well as comfortable lounge furniture, creating a wonderful setting for dining, entertaining, and socialising.
Next door, the breakfasting kitchen comes replete with a good range of classic-design timber cabinets and ample worktop space, incorporating a Belling range cooker, a dishwasher, a fridge-freezer, and a washing machine. Furthermore, it accommodates room for a breakfast table for morning coffee. A porch for muddy boots affords handy access to the rear garden. Serving the ground floor is a good-size family bathroom, housing a three-piece suite with a shower-over-bath.
Located on this level are the three main bedrooms. The front-facing master bedroom is extended by a bay window, benefitting from a built-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room.
The second double bedroom, with a pedestal washbasin, is an equally generous space, whilst a large single bedroom with flexible proportions completes the ground floor. Upstairs, a vast loft, floored including power and light, spans the entire depth of the property. With the appropriate permissions, it could be converted into further living or sleeping accommodation. Here, there is also a floored loft room, which is spacious and airy, bathed in light from a large Velux window. It represents a wonderfully versatile space for creative use. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout
Externally, the home is accompanied by well-maintained gardens.
