Enjoying a superb location for family life, within walking distance to schools, close to Portobello beach, the magnificent Holyrood Park and within easy reach of the city centre, this semi-detached bungalow with extensive private parking and gardens, offers generous accommodation with excellent potential for upgrading or extending with the necessary planning consents.
Set back from the road, behind a tarmacked drive bordered by lawn and cheerful flowerbeds, a porch and vestibule welcomes into a central hallway, flowing into the living/dining room; a beautifully proportioned space with ample room for comfortable seating and dining furniture, centred around a hearth with gas fire. Double width glazed sliding doors open into the adjoining garden facing conservatory, with windows on all sides flooding the space with natural light. Together, these two rooms offer a generous open plan family layout ideal for socialising and relaxing. The kitchen is located conveniently adjacent. With a sunny, south-facing aspect, and handy door leading to the rear, it boasts a broad expanse of fitted floor and wall mounted units, incorporating a hob and double oven, with neutral toned worktops and splashbacks. Ample space is available for a dining table and freestanding white goods.
The master bedroom, located to the front, is distinguished by a deep bay window with an easterly aspect, giving rise to a bright and warm room, benefiting from the morning sun. This versatile room, alternatively a third reception room, is furnished with a hearth and gas fire. There are two further bedrooms, one to the front, one to the rear, each cosily carpeted and with built in wardrobes. Finally, a natural lit family bathroom, located off the hall, is appointed with a bath with shower-over, pedestal basin and WC. The property benefits from exceptional storage, by way of a floored loft accessed via a hatch from the hall. This could offer potential for extending the house, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. Completing the property, gas central heating and double-glazing offer year-round warmth and comfort.
In addition to the landscaped front garden, the enclosed west-facing rear garden has separate informal and formal areas, landscaped with a lawn and planted borders, creating an ideal and easily maintained outdoor space. There is useful gated drive for several cars and a garage adjoins the side of the house.
