Ravenswood bargain

The word “bargain” is seldom a good one to use in connection with property, as however reasonable the price may seem all sorts of other factors – for example location, interior decorative order – tend to conspire to make supposedly low prices quite realistic.

But this one (marketed through Homelink) is possibly an exception, because while the bidding may push the price up a little an offers over £69,000 starting price is remarkably competitive, given the quality of the property concerned.

Ravenswood itself needs no introduction to local people, and is exactly the sort of area many young families are keen to move into, for a variety of excellent lcoations.

But even in a market still shrugging off the vestiges of recession it’s surely a surprise to find a top floor maisonette of this quality pitched at such as a buyer-friendly opening price – and, no, there isn’t a catch.

The large spacious lounge is a pleasant and smartly-decorated centrepiece for an ensemble which includes three bedrooms, modern fitted kitchen and family bathroom.

Crucially, there is plenty of storage space – an important consideration for anyone, but perhaps particularly for a family whose belongings will inevitably mushroom as the years pass by.

Then there’s welcome assets included such as gas central heating and off road parking, so that besides the nice location there’s also a built-in comfort and convenience factor that adds extra value to the whole equation.

Ravenswood itself, meanwhile, offers easy access to local schools and is an easy walk from Cumbernauld town centre – nobody moving into this Skye Road address will feel remotely cut off or “out of the way” as regards all the amenities that make life in the area so worthwhile.

The new owner or owners needn’t be a couple planning or already raising a family, because this is the sort of property that could suit a wide range of buyers – those rooms could be put to various uses – but for anyone trying to get the best from a budget this one should be high on the list of places to visit over the summer weeks ahead.

Homelink, handling the sale from their handy town centre base, obviously have full details on just what this attractive gem of a property has to offer would-be buyers .

Even if you already had an idea that Ravenswood might be a good area to check out this one should be seen first – particularly if you are one of those couples aiming to bring up a family, and are looking for either a first home or a significant upgrade to present accommodation.

It could just be the “right” property that really is as good as it seems to be in every way.
