The home, which dates back to 1901, boasts beautiful bay windows, an original working fireplace and a spacious garden is on the market for offers over £137,000.

The flat would be perfect for a couple looking to buy their first home or those looking to relocate to a dream tenement home.

The home consists of a large kitchen and dining area, a large living room, two good sized bedrooms, a bathroom, two cupboards and a utility closet for your washing machine and tumble dryer.

Oakshaw Street East is a three-minute walk from Paisley Town Centre and seven minutes away from Paisley Gilmore Street Station.

The area is currently seeing heavy investment from the local council too with Paisley's high-street set for a revamp with proposals for a cinema and food halls.

The Thomas Coats Observatory is a one minute walk away and the Paisley Museum, which is currently undergoing a £42m makeover, is only minutes away too by foot.

Local estate agents in Paisley report that access to nature and green spaces may have contributed to the rising prices.

Both of these attributes are said to have become more important to some home movers during coronavirus lockdowns.

Curtis Chisholm, director at a major estate agency, said: "The demand for Paisley can be attributed to the fact that you can get more for your money here than in Glasgow’s West End or South Side, especially with the ease of commuting coupled with quality homes in very desirable addresses.

"Paisley is a very historical town with fabulous culture."

You can book a viewing here or by phoning Purplebricks estate agent Lesley McKirdy on 07923933541.

Viewing of this property comes highly recommended as properties in this part of Paisley often sell quickly due to its dreamy homes and idyllic location.
