A rare opportunity has come along to buy a property with its own pool on a seaside suburb road where the last home sold almost a decade ago.
The substantial house is located on Mossgiel Avenue in Ainsdale and is set on a half acre plot with picturesque gardens and its own pond. As well as five bedrooms and three bathrooms, it also features a detached barn and a garden room with a 40ft indoor swimming pool.
The home has been occupied by the same family for more than half a century and is on a road where homes rarely go up for sale. Guests are welcomed through decorative iron gates onto a sweeping gravel driveway to take in the majesty of the double-fronted period home.

Downstairs features a sitting room with a bay window and another huge kitchen, living and dining space that runs the length of the house. The décor is in need of some modernisation, but original features such as ornate coving and large windows give the home a charming touch.
The huge kitchen has plenty of storage space and a breakfast bar for additional seating. The room leads on to the garden room, where the pool is located. A shower room and a utility room makes up the remainder of the ground floor.
Upstairs are five decent sized bedrooms and a family bathroom featuring quirky burgundy patterned tiles.
The property is on the market with Ball & Percival for offers above £725,000.
The listing said: "The home has been with the same family for over fifty years. The current vendors feel that now is the time for a new family to put their own stamp onto a much loved home and create their own memories here."
Houses don't go up for sale often on Mossgiel Avenue. The last one sold in 2013.
House prices in Ainsdale overall were 1% higher in the last year than the previous period, and are 14% up on the 2019 peak of £224,721.
