Property highlight: Two bedroom ground floor colony flat in Lochend.
Closing date set for Tuesday 30th March 2021 at 12 noon.
Part of the attractive Lochend Colonies conservation area, where quaint cobbled streets meet traditional stone-built properties, this stylish ground-floor colony flat is beautifully presented throughout, with striking interior design and delightful period features. It offers two bedrooms, a spacious living/dining room, and a contemporary kitchen, along with a private front garden and a superb location in the city of Edinburgh.
The front entrance to 11 Woodbine Terrace opens into a handy vestibule for coats and shoes, leading directly into a welcoming hall lined with four-panel wooden doors. On the right is the living/dining room which is enlivened by a wealth of period details, from the smooth coving and intricate ceiling rose, to the handsome feature fireplace that frames the room with an exquisite focal point. Here, pale mint decoration and white detailing enrich the traditional character of the property, the classic style further complemented by a neat picture rail and varnished timber floorboards. It is a spacious room that accommodates comfortable furnishings, as well as a table for sociable meals. A southerly-facing window bathes the area in natural light, whilst a built-in cupboard completes. In the kitchen, a contemporary design incorporates olive décor, white handle-less cabinets with timber trim, and wooden worktops. The sophisticated look is finished with fashionable metro splashback tiles and under-cabinet lighting, with integrated appliances for those sleek lines (ceramic hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, and washing machine).
The two bedrooms are sat side-by-side to the rear. Both enjoy appealing décor with bold colours, as well as low-maintenance flooring. The first bedroom is a good-size double with a built-in cupboard, whilst the second bedroom is a versatile single currently arranged as a nursery, yet equally viable as a office. Finishing the property is a modern three-piece shower room with a delightful mix of aqua-hued décor and white tiling. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, the home has a sizeable front garden that offers a good level of privacy and a southwest-facing aspect, plus a well-maintained lawn, a shed, and paved areas for potting plants and dining in the sun. Unrestricted on-street parking is available in close vicinity.
