Promising a delightful suburban home with a peaceful setting, private gardens, and a driveway, this three-bedroom lower villa in sought-after Colinton lies just 20 minutes’ commute from Edinburgh city centre and conveniently close to the Bypass for travelling further afield. The home’s attractively decorated interiors are brightly lit by picture windows and enhanced by characterful pine finishings throughout.
Welcoming you into the home is a neutrally-decorated hall with useful built-in storage and a practical wood-styled floor. Leading off the hall is a bright reception area enjoying tasteful décor, further wood-styled flooring and French doors opening onto a private decked terrace. The inviting room promises space for both lounge and dining furniture and is supplemented by two handy storage cupboards. Conveniently accessed from the living area is a stylish fitted kitchen featuring gloss-white cabinets paired with illuminated wood-toned worktops and scarlet-red subway tiling. The room benefits from a large window and is further equipped with a range of freestanding appliances. These comprise an electric cooker (with an integrated feature hood), a fridge, a freezer, and a dishwasher, with plumbing provided for a washing machine. Also accessed from the reception area and similarly decorated is one of the home’s three bedrooms – a single bedroom currently utilised as a home study and featuring a traditional ceiling-hung clothes pulley. The remaining bedrooms are both doubles, accessed from the hall and favourably south-facing. These sunny bedrooms are presented with subtle décor, with the master bedroom benefiting from built-in storage and the added comfort of fitted carpeting and the second bedroom featuring wood-styled flooring. Finally, a modern, attractively-tiled bathroom comes complete with a WC and basin, wall-mounted vanity storage and a chrome towel radiator, and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen. The villa is heated via efficient gas central heating and double glazed throughout.
Externally, the villa is accompanied by private outdoor areas comprising a south-facing front garden, neatly laid to lawn, and a decked terrace to the rear, fully enclosed for added privacy and ideal for alfresco dining. Located to the front of the property is a private driveway providing convenient off-street parking.
