Perfect family home

Everyone is looking for “real value” in the property market – but nobody wants to invest in a home that turns out to be a false economy.

And that is perhaps why properties such as this two-storey three-bedroomed home in Abronhill are enjoying their share of the limelight, perhaps more so now than any other time since the start of the recession.

It is arguably a classic example of a property that has been developed to superb, premium condition by a couple who aimed to extract every inch of value from the house during their own stay there.

Stephen and Mary Brown are moving from the area reluctantly, and are certain the place which meant so much to them will prove a brilliant buy for another lucky couple.

The Lilac Home property doesn’t have to be a family home, of course, but people looking to start a family, or with one already underway, are among those most likely to be impressed at first sight.

“This really is a great area,” said Mrs Brown. “It is friendly, family-orientated but also quiet – meaning you can actually relax at home and enjoy its advantages.”

These include a very substantial enclosed outdoor area, which is not a “garden” in the usual sense and can be maintained very easily.

It is a built-in bonus for anyone who enjoys private outdoor space, whether as a children’s play area or place for convivial summer gatherings, and doesn’t need the work and expense that would be required to manage the upkeep of a similarly sized garden full of plants, shrubs and blooms.

The decking is in excellent condition, and the “boardwalk” surround to the building creates an instant and lasting positive impression – which is then instantly confirmed by the quality of the decor and fittings indoors.

Downstairs you can enjoy the roomy comfort of the lounge and dining room, with French doors to the rear, and the amenity of a smart modern fitted kitchen.

Upstairs are the three generously-sized bedrooms, including one with large, free standing mirrored wardrobes.

Everything is completed in excellent taste and to a high specification, and the phrase “walk in condition” perfectly sums up what is on offer.

The starting price is competitive for what is involved, and pitched at a level designed to engage interest from a wide variety of potential buyers – but in fact the true quality of this home only becomes apparent when all of its considerable strongpoints are viewed and understood as a single concept.

It’s the sort of property likely to do well in a market where everyone is looking for extra value, and an early visit to view is recommended.
