Lower Villa Conversion.
The much sought after district of Polwarth lies to the south west of the city centre, just under two miles from Princes Street, close to Merchiston and Craiglockhart. This convenient location is within easy reach of good shopping and schooling facilities, with regular bus services running to and from the city centre and other areas. A fast route is available to Lothian Road and the Financial District, together with Princes Street and a wide selection of popular restaurants, bistros and bars. The open spaces of Harrison Park are well known while the Union Canal offers an alternative route on foot towards Fountainbridge and other surrounding districts. The Fountain Park Entertainment Centre is also within easy reach offering a further selection of restaurants, a Casino, a Multiplex Cinema, and Ten Pin Bowling.
Polwarth Terrace runs in an east to west direction joining Harrison Road with Colinton Road. Number 106A lies on the north-west side of the street.
The property for sale forms part of the ground and first floors of this handsome Victorian stone-fronted semi-detached villa, originally constructed around the end of the 19th century. Approached from a private entrance vestibule within the west gable of the building, the interesting layout is arranged around an 'L' shaped hallway, to offer a generously proportioned front facing bay windowed sitting room, a dining room, three bedrooms, a large fitted kitchen, and a modern fully tiled bathroom. The second bedroom is located on the first floor and is approached from a timber staircase within the dining room. Decorative cornice and frieze plasterwork are displayed within the sitting room and master bedroom, the latter also including a range of fitted wardrobes. The property would now benefit from some general upgrading.
There is a Lean-to Timber Garage (Approx 19'7 x 8'8 5.97m x 2.64m measured externally) located on the west gable wall, approached from a partially shared stone-chipped driveway, and hard standing for a further 3 vehicles. The attractive easily managed back garden is fully enclosed and offers a shaped lawn surrounded by stone walls and well stocked borders, together with a large paved patio.
