CKD Galbraith market much admired family house in prime location

CKD Galbraith is marketing a substantial and imposing house set in a wonderful corner plot within one of the best residential areas in Ayr.

Monument Road lies between Ayr town centre and the historic village of Alloway. A fine house in an excellent location, No 52 dates from 1956 and was designed by Carrick Architects of Ayr for the current owners to an exceptionally high specification. It sits well back within a generous garden in a corner plot between Monument Road and the adjacent cul-de-sac.

The house has accommodation over three storeys, comprising formal living and dining rooms, kitchen, four bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom. In addition the second floor is used as an open plan sitting room and has a substantial adjacent attic storeroom. There is also a useful covered utility area with integral single garage and storage sheds. The gardens surround the house to the front and rear.

Having been designed for and occupied by a single family this has been a much loved home. A degree of modernisation is now required to upgrade the house which also offers considerable potential for extension on its large square site.

This house will appeal to families looking for a substantial property with considerable potential in a sought after area.

Offers over £450,000 are being sought for 52 Monument Road.

Make your mark and cast your vote!

ONE of South Ayrshire’s newest voters is urging people to make their vote count in the elections next week.

Drongan resident Lesley McGregor (pictured above) turned 18 in September last year and admits she can’t wait to cast her vote.

She said: “I’m looking forward to being a first time voter and, as I’d just turned 18, I wasn’t sure if I was on the Electoral Register, so I decided to phone up and check. I’m glad I did this as I’m now registered and have not lost my right to vote.

“I feel it is everybody’s responsibility to have their say in who forms the new government. If you don’t vote, then you really can’t complain how the country is run.

“Having never been in a polling station before, I’m really looking forward to learning about what goes on and how it all works. In some countries people do not automatically have the right to vote so that’s why I feel it is important we all have our say and make the most of this opportunity.”

The UK election takes place on 6 May 2010 and casting your vote is easy.

The following five steps explain how to vote at your polling station on election day.

1. Go to your local polling station, which will be shown on your poll card. Polling station opening hours are 7am - 10pm.

2. Tell the staff inside the polling station your name and address so they can check that you are on the electoral register. You can show them your poll card, but you do not need it to vote.

3. The staff at the polling station will give you a ballot paper listing the candidates you can vote for.

4. Take your ballot paper into a polling booth and read it carefully. Information in the polling booth will remind you how to cast your vote. Put ‘X’ in the box beside the name of the candidate you are voting for. Do this in secret. Do not write anything else on the paper or your vote may not be counted.

5. Finally, when you have marked your vote, fold the ballot paper in half and put it in the ballot box. Do not let anyone see your vote. If you are not clear on what to do, ask the staff at the polling station to help you.

Lesley concluded: “I’m going to have my say – make sure you do the same”.
