23 Parkgrove offers spacious accommodation neutrally presented throughout, representing an ideal home for families, first-time buyers, and commuting professionals alike.
The front door opens into a hall with storage and a crisp palette of décor, enhanced by timber-effect flooring. It is an inviting entrance that leads into the living/dining room on the left. This generous reception area has a broad footprint for a selection of lounge and dining furniture. It is also fronted by a large picture window that floods the space in warm sunlight, whilst a charming mantelpiece frames the room with a focal point for arranging furniture. Double doors lead into the neighbouring kitchen, which comes well appointed with white base and wall cabinets, arranged in an L-shape, and chunky wood-toned worktops, backed by colourful mosaic splashbacks. It offers garden access, a handy recess, and a range of appliances.
A carpeted staircase leads up to a bright three-piece bathroom, before reaching the first-floor landing, where there is concealed storage and the three spacious double bedrooms. To the front, the principal bedroom has the more generous proportions and a tasteful accent wall, as well as soft carpeting for comfort. Meanwhile, bedroom two, with low-maintenance flooring, and the softly carpeted bedroom three are both to the rear with peaceful garden outlooks. Accessed from the landing via a Ramsay-type ladder is the attic, which provides excellent storage. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, the home benefits from enclosed gardens to the front and rear, with the latter enjoying a well-tended lawn, a shed, and a timber-decked bay for alfresco dining in the sun. Unrestricted on-street parking is also available to the front.
Nestled between expansive woodland areas, various golf courses, a marina, and a sandy beach at nearby Cramond, yet only 5 miles from the city centre, Barnton is one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after residential areas. It boasts outstanding outdoor nature trails at Hillwood Park, along the River Almond, beach walks at Cramond and Cramond Island, and at Cammo Estate Park. Furthermore, there is nearby Lauriston Castle set within a historic garden that offers magnificent views over the Firth of Forth and Cramond Island.
The area enjoys a high concentration of golf courses within brisk walking distance. Barnton’s renowned tennis club and Drumbrae Leisure Centre are both close by. The surrounding area conveniently offers a variety of shops (including the newly built Parkgrove Shopping Centre), including a supermarket, mini supermarket, Post Office, chemist, bakers, and a bank. For more substantial shopping, the nearby Hermiston Gait and the Gyle shopping centres can be easily reached by car. There is also a very good selection of eateries and pubs in the wider area. Schooling is well catered for from nursery to secondary level with both primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Transport facilities are excellent in the area with regular bus services taking you to and from the city centre and beyond. It is also well positioned for access to the airport, Queensferry Crossing, the city bypass, and the M8 to Glasgow.
