A Victorian villa in Eskbank
Craigerne is a substantial Victorian semi-detached villa in Eskbank which would really make an excellent family home.
This fantastic stone-built home has been extended into the attic space and its generous living accommodation is spread over three levels. You enter the home through attractive double doors into the entrance porch which leads to the welcoming reception hall, while carpeted stairs lead to the upper levels. The property maintains many of the original period features including the cornicing and fireplaces.
The generous lounge to the front of the property has a large bay window and a beautiful gas fire. The formal dining room which is located to the rear of the property also has an attractive fireplace as its focal point. The well-proportioned breakfasting kitchen benefits from dual aspect windows overlooking the rear garden.
On the first floor, the bright gallery style landing enjoys natural light from the large Velux sky light. The master bedroom is found on this floor, to the front of the property, and features a bay window and en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom three, which is currently used as a study, has stairs leading to the private roof garden.
The upper level of the property has been extended into the attic space and offers an additional two double bedrooms fitted with Velux windows and another bathroom with a three piece suite. There is plenty of storage on each level of the property and it has double glazing and gas central heating to keep it warm throughout.
Off street parking is available to the front of the property and a shared driveway leads to the rear garden which enjoys a private garden with small patio area and artificial grass. The garage is partly fitted with kennels and a door to the rear of the garage leads to the privately owned ‘secret’ gardens, which are used by the residents of Eskbank.
