Property highlight: Beautifully presented main door double upper villa with garden
Full of character, this Victorian double upper (Listed Category B) is located in a traditional terraced row with private entrance and its own garden. The property is presented to a very high standard throughout and maintains a host of attractive features including original wood flooring, panelled doors and sash and case windows. Once a three bedroom property, the current layout has been adapted by previous owners and now offers comfortable accommodation that lends itself to modern living. There is a beautifully bright living room to front with an open fire and surround, and a large open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear. The kitchen is fitted with shaker style units, integrated appliances and under cabinet lighting. A sizeable dining area offers ample room for full table and chairs and also features a recessed office space with built-in desk. Upstairs is a most impressive master bedroom which spans the full width of the property and benefits from mirrored wardrobes. There is a further double bedroom with bay window and a lovely bathroom with both bath and separate shower cubicle. Storage is available on the first floor, in the attic and in the outside under stair store. Gas central heating is operated by a combi boiler.
Douglas Terrace forms part of the Dalry Colonies which is a quaint cobbled enclave in a protected Conservation Area set back from Dalry Road. It is just yards away from Haymarket Rail Station and will soon benefit from the new ‘Qmile’ development which is set to feature exciting retail and leisure space. There are a range of excellent bars, delicatessens and restaurants in the immediate area and the location is most convenient for commuters accessing Edinburgh Park via bus or tram. Several local shops (including a Co-op and Marks & Spencer’s food hall) cater for everyday needs. Fountain Park Leisure, Union Canal and access to cycle paths are all close by.
