Irvine is located approximately 30 miles to the south west of Glasgow and 7 miles west of Kilmarnock. The town benefits from good transport connections, being adjacent to the A78, A736, A737 and A71 trunk roads, the latter providing direct access to the M77 motorway which connects with Glasgow. The A78 also provides access north to Greenock, and south to Ayr and to the ferry terminals at Troon and Stranraer. The property is located on the north side of Townhead (B7081) some 70m west of the junction with East Road, from which it also has rear access. The location is 300m east of the traditional town centre and 200m east of The Portal, a new leisure centre operated by North Ayrshire Council’s KA Leisure arm. Townhead is a main vehicular route into the town centre from the south east, crossing over the A78 bypass just north of the Warrix Interchange, which is accessed 300m south via the A71. Surrounding land uses are mixed, but there is a predominance of traditional residential accommodation and some commercial businesses such as Coast Estate Agents, Irvine Pool Club, The Salvation Army and Balmoral Funeral Directors. The rear, secondary access is from East Road, this being a quiet , relatively narrow and mainly residential street.


The Property comprises a traditionally styled 2-storey, terraced, rendered and painted stone building under a timber pitched and slated roof with extensions added to the rear. These extensions are single storey in nature, likely to be built in blockwork, then roughcast and rendered, under a variety of roofs. The first two are smaller extensions having flat roofs, with the main rear extension (added around 2009) having a tiled mono-pitched roof and rendered elevations. The rear elevation is built up to East Road at the rear. The Property was previously used as a limited service guest house, and is laid out to provide entrance hall with controlled entry door, opening to a service desk, this leading to the 9 letting bedrooms of varying sizes and configurations. Only two do not have en-suite facilities. The original 2-storey building has 2 bedrooms on the ground floor (Rooms 1 & 3 – both en-suite), a laundry/utility room and 2 bedrooms on the upper floor (Rooms 3 & 4), these accessed via a central stairway and having small kitchen and utility area plus shower room and toilet. A ground level corridor leads to a sink/prep area, the rear extensions, and a single letting room at the rear of the corridor (Room 5). A cupboard off the corridor contains a gas fired boiler. A rear door leads to the external walkway that provides access to 4 en-suite rooms (Rooms 6, 7, 8 & 9) all within the 2009 extension. All have private entry external UPVC doors and windows and can be accessed from the rear off East Road.
