CKD Galbraith market period townhouse
in historic terrace near Ayr beach
SCOTLAND'S leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith’s Ayr Office is marketing a lovely example of a late 19th Century period townhouse, situated in arguably one of the prettiest terraces in Ayr.
Eglinton Terrace is situated in a quiet residential area within walking distance of both Ayr town centre and the beach front. This imposing group of houses was built on the site of the former Ayr Citadel, a substantial fort built in the 1650s on the orders of Oliver Cromwell.
Nowadays, this charming terrace has open frontage onto tennis courts which lie on the original parade grounds of the Fort. At the entrance to the street stands the remains of the Tower of St John, where the crown of Scotland was officially passed to Robert The Bruce, forming the first Parliament of Scotland.
A comfortable and beautifully proportioned example of later 19th century neo-classical architecture, 17 Eglinton Terrace has beautifully proportioned accommodation over three storeys, including three reception rooms and five bedrooms.
The owners have undertaken a painstaking programme of redecoration to create a beautifully presented family home, whilst retaining many original features such as open fireplaces, cornicing and working shutters. Eglinton Terrace is listed Category B as being of outstanding architectural and historic interest.
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a delightful family home within a convenient, attractive residential area of Ayr.
Offers over £375,000 are being sought for 17 Eglinton Terrace.
