This two-reception room, four-bedroom (plus box room), detached house occupies an expansive footprint with equally generous wraparound gardens and ample private parking. It has a family-friendly setting in the Mauricewood area of Penicuik, in easy reach of the Pentland Hills, amenities, schooling, and transport links. Although the property requires refurbishing, the substantial home offers incredible scope for extensions and further development, subject to planning permission (STPP). Inside, you are first greeted by a vestibule and then a reception hall with a built-in cupboard and a WC. On the right is the very generous living room, which spans the entire depth of the home to provide floorspace for a wide choice of furnishings. It also enjoys a feature fireplace and dual-aspect windows to the northwest and southeast, flooding the room in all-day sun. On the opposite side of the hall, a southeast-facing dining room, with another feature fireplace, provides a second large reception area, which conveniently opens via double doors into the kitchen. Also accessible from the hall, the kitchen is light-filled and well-proportioned, offering plenty of scope for a contemporary upgrade. Upstairs, the naturally-lit landing has walk-in storage, a deep cupboard, and a box room with further built-in storage. The four bedrooms extend from the landing, comprised of three airy doubles (one with built-in wardrobes), and a versatile single. A bright three-piece bathroom finishes the home. Many of the rooms feature wooden floorboards that could be primed and varnished or laid with fitted carpets. Double-glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year-round comfort. Outside, the property sits within generous wraparound gardens, which are laid to lawn and offer fantastic scope to extend (STPP). A detached single garage and multi-car driveway provide off-street parking. Extras: to be sold as seen.
