Perfect for first-time buyers, city professionals, young families, downsizers and rental investors alike, this generous lower villa in Craiglockhart enjoys two bedrooms and spacious living areas, plus private front and rear gardens and access to unrestricted on-street parking. The villa offers an exciting blank canvas for its new owners to put their own stamp on and create a modern home to their own tastes and requirements.
Positioned back from the road behind a garden, the home's front door opens into a practical entrance vestibule flowing through to a spacious hall. Immediately on your right, you step into a living and dining room. Fronted by a southerly-facing box window flooding the room with natural light and framing leafy views, this well-proportioned reception area offers ample room for a selection of lounge furniture and a dining table and chairs, and features a brick-effect accent wall framing a decorative fireplace. Next door and quietly positioned to the rear of the property is a generous kitchen. This dual-aspect room is equipped with a wide range of cabinets, complemented by spacious worktops and splashback tiling, which have been designed to accommodate space for a selection of freestanding appliances: including an electric cooker, a fridge, a freezer, and a washing machine. A large built-in cupboard and a garden entrance also feature.
At the opposite side of the hall, two generously-proportioned double bedrooms await. Both sleeping areas benefit from built-in wardrobes and the larger of the two boasts the same sunny aspect as the reception room. Finally, a partially-tiled bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a bathtub, a pedestal basin, and a toilet. The villa is heated by an electric heating system and benefits from partial double glazing.
Externally, the home boasts private gardens to the front and rear, offering generous outdoor spaces for alfresco entertaining and dining with guests, and relaxing during the warmer months! Unrestricted on-street parking can be found on Craiglockhart Drive North. EPC Rating - E. Extras: Sold as seen.
