Tenure Freehold

An opportunity has arisen to purchase a delightful semi-detached villa built some 27 years ago in the Kings Ridings Estate by Wimpey Homes and located within a very quiet yet central situation. This well maintained property forms a delightful family home within easy reach of excellent local facilities. Situated within this sought after area of Prestonfield, the house is some two miles from the historical and business centre of Edinburgh and is very convenient and within walking distance of Cameron Toll which offers a variety of outlets including Sainsburys, Boots, Aldi and many other shops and local banks. A short drive away is Kinnaird Park with Marks & Spencer, Boots, Currys, Pets at Home, W.H. Smith, a variety of coffee shops and cafes and the popular Odeon Cinema. The property is also convenient for access to the Royal Infirmary and to the Scottish Parliament. For leisure and sporting facilities the house is near Peffermill playing fields and Prestonfield and Duddingston golf courses are within the area and the Royal Commonwealth swimming pool a short distance away. From the property, views can be enjoyed to nearby Arthur's Seat where lovely walks can be enjoyed and also in the Queen's Park beside Duddingston Loch which is a popular bird sanctuary. Travelling in a southerly direction access can be gained to the Edinburgh City Bypass and from there to the central motorway network to Edinburgh International Airport and Queensferry Crossing. Many buses serve this area leading into the city centre and other parts of the town, and Edinburgh Waverley Station is approximately two miles away and the same distance away are Brunstane and Newcraighall Stations. The Kings Riding Estate has open spaces and whilst being in a convenient location does not have passing traffic allowing peaceful living within the area. The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule with a downstairs cloakroom with a WC. The lounge has a picture window to the front and is open to a dining-room with views to the rear garden. The fitted kitchen with appliances is located quietly at the rear of the property and has access to the garden.
