Property description

If you are not afraid of some light, external structural works in return for a potentially good uplift then this property is perfect for you. If you are a first time buyer, novice property developer or afraid of anything structural then the property definitely isn’t for you. The property is in good order internally and a structural survey is in place along with a builders quote for £2500 for the ‘bulge’ on the front of the building which is referred to in the home report, so these works are fairly moderate. The neighbouring building also requires some structural works and it is not known what plans are in place to address these, however on completion of works to this property and the neighbouring one, it is estimated by the RICS surveyor that this flat could reach as much as £60,000 plus, dependant on internal finishing’s and extent of external works completed.

Located in Windygates which is a small and sought after village. Windygates has local shopping, services and primary school. The village is well placed for commuting to nearby towns, Leven, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes.
