A YOUNG Ayr couple have spoken of their delight at purchasing their first home together - even if it came with a hefty price tag.

Ryan and Jennifer grew up in Ayr, and after meeting while they were pupils at the nearby Belmont Academy, the pair were set on building a life together in the town, surrounded by their friends and family.

In April, the pair discovered Cala’s Florence Wynd development in the south-west suburb of Doonfoot, just 2.5 miles south of Ayr.

Ryan said: “I was so impressed by the kerb appeal of Cala’s homes and how they stood out compared to the other builders in the community.

Ayr Advertiser:

“The size and layout of the Bryce is perfect for us."

After an appointment with the Cala Homes sales team at Florence Wynd, the couple reserved their own four-bedroom Bryce housetype.

Just nine months later, in January 2023, they were handed their keys and moved into their very first home together.

“The open plan living, kitchen and family area and the generous lounge space gives us plenty of room for hosting our friends and family, whilst the bi-fold doors into our private garden gives our home a real airy and spacious feel," Ryan continued.

Ayr Advertiser:

“We chose this particular plot as it has an excellent private position in the development at the top of the hill, with off-street parking and uninterrupted views of the Carrick Hills and just a short walk to the beach.

"We like how tucked-away the house feels and the tranquillity that comes with that, all while being just moments away from our friends and family in Ayr.”

Ryan and Jennifer are the first family to move into the second phase, Florence Wynd following the sell out of phase one, Florence Gardens.

Prices now start from £529,995.
