Charles Street, Largs


Full Description

Fabulous 4 bedroom, end terrace period home offer exciting opportunities for improvements and development.

Promising a generous family home with a desirable coastal setting less than an hour from Glasgow, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom traditional end-terraced house is centrally located in the quaint seaside town of Largs, with shops and leisure amenities, schools, the train station, and the beach all within easy walking distance. The home’s three storeys of bright, spacious, and versatile accommodation offer exciting opportunities for improvements and development and incorporate three reception areas, including a large floored attic, currently used as a family room, with sea views. A private driveway and a south-facing garden complete this highly-appealing proposition.

The front door opens into a foyer and is framed by a characterful arched window allowing plentiful natural light to flood into the airy entrance area which is laid with practical oak-styled flooring. To the left of the hall lies two of the three reception areas, benefiting from a sociable open layout. These comprise a bay-fronted living room, carpeted and arranged around a living flame fire with an elegantly understated surround, and a southerly-facing dining room with durable wood-style flooring and garden access – perfect for entertaining all year round! Returning through the hall, you reach a bright, dual-aspect kitchen allowing space for casual family dining. Though in need of some upgrading, the kitchen is equipped with good cabinet storage and workspace, with appliances comprising an integrated oven, a gas hob with a modern feature hood and an under-counter fridge. A built-in store cupboard provides additional pantry storage. To the rear of the kitchen, a hall (with built-in storage) leads handily onto the garden whilst also affording access to one of the four bedrooms on offer, a sunny double room with wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes, adjoined by a bright bathroom with a WC-suite and a shower-over-bath. These rooms, with their proximity to an external entrance, would potentially suit live-in relatives or guests. The first-floor accommodation fans off an airy landing approached via stairs from the entrance foyer, lit by a feature window with an attractive stained-glass detail. Located on this level are the remaining three double bedrooms served by no less than two modern shower rooms to cater for busy family life! The bedrooms comprise a bay-fronted master, a second bedroom heightened by a bright dual-aspect, and a third which benefits from a capacious built-in cupboard and a peaceful rear-facing position, with a sunny aspect. Finally, reached via stairs from the first-floor landing, is a comfortably carpeted, triple-aspect attic that is currently used as a family room occupying the entirety of the second/top-floor with enviable views towards the nearby seafront. This generous multi-purpose room (with access to useful eaves storage) represents a perfect space for hobbies, games or working from home. Efficient gas central heating and double glazing can be found throughout the property.

Externally, the home is accompanied by a rear garden, enclosed by stone walls with a gated side entrance, and therefore reassuringly secure for family recreation. Mainly laid to lawn, the garden enjoys sun throughout the day and an attached store provides handy external storage. Private parking for multiple vehicles is located to the front of the property with a neatly-paved driveway.

Extras: Included in the sale are all the fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated and freestanding kitchen appliances.
