It’s a quieter part of town that’s not out the loop but can also boast views of the fine greenery surrounding Cumbernauld. And this week’s property at Kingshill Avenue is an excellent example.

The three bedroom home is the biggest plot in the street. Its spacious driveway has a very particular claim to fame. Because a total of TEN cars can be parked there. And its elevated position at the end of the drive makes for some very attractive vistas.

Owners Kenny and Christine Nicholson are on the way as Kenny has a new job in the energy sector that’s based in Kilmarnock and want to move to Prestwick. Kenny (45) said: “This would be an ideal home for families with plenty of parking. It really is very peaceful as Broadwood Loch is five minutes away but I can walk to Croy Station in 20 minutes.’’

That connection to one of Scotland’s main transport hubs could be a real boon for you workwise but for those of you who work from home, there is a spacious study area. Which could be converted into another bedroom if that’s not of use. The neutral kitchen units also cleverly hide all the kitchen appliances meaning there’s no need for a separate utility room. The neutrally coloured space is walk- in condition and is just at the level any viewer wants to see. The same is true of the family bathroom and the bedrooms.

Gardeners will be interested in what lies outside. You could easily convert this roomy area back to grass as industrial drainage has been installed and the patio would be absolutely prefect for a barbecue. Viewing strongly advised.
