This traditional detached house in Corstorphine enjoys three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a breakfasting kitchen, and a bathroom, and offers potential for modernisation and cosmetic upgrades. The house is accompanied by lo maintenance gardens, an integral single garage, and a private driveway.
The front door opens into an entrance vestibule flowing through to a hall, with both areas accompanied by built-in storage and the latter incorporating a space that would be great as a study area - ideal for those who work or study from home. Immediately on your left you step into a living room, where a spacious footprint allows for various layouts of lounge furniture, and dual-aspect windows (including one with a charming stained-glass detail) capture natural light throughout the day. Across the hall, a formal dining room enjoys similar proportions and presents a perfect setting for seated family meals and entertaining with guests, whilst also incorporating built-in storage. Set to the rear of the property is a kitchen, which, with some reconfiguration, could accommodate a bistro table and chairs or a breakfast bar. The kitchen is currently fitted with wall and base cabinets, spacious worktops, and splashback tiling, and affords access to a porch (with storage) which leads to the garage and the garden.
Also found on the ground floor are one of the property's three bedrooms (a spacious double with built-in storage) and a bathroom, replete with a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a pedestal basin, a WC, and a mirrored vanity cabinet.
On the first floor, you will find the remaining two bedrooms. Both bedrooms enjoy a wealth of built- in/fitted storage, with the principal benefiting from a walk-in wardrobe. Gas central heating and double glazing (except two small single-glazed windows) ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. Externally, the house is accompanied by low-maintenance gardens, all paved and chipped for easy upkeep and presenting sunny outdoor space for relaxing during summer. Excellent off-street parking is provided by a private driveway leading to an integral single garage. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, and kitchen appliances will be included in the sale. EPC E.
