Enjoying lovely views towards Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat, this traditional semi-detached villa is arranged over two floors and offers a most comfortable family home. Built during the early 1920’s the easily managed interior has been pleasantly modernised and is tastefully decorated throughout, complementing the lovely natural Scottish Douglas Fir doors. The bright interior includes a front facing sitting room with a feature marble fireplace housing a coal effect living flame fire, a generous dining room with French doors to the back garden, two double bedrooms plus a single bedroom, a fitted/equipped kitchen, and a superb fully Porcelanosa tiled bathroom displaying a shower fitting and glazed screen over the bath, a vanity wash basin, and a concealed cistern w.c.. The house benefits from gas central heating fired by a Combi boiler, double glazed windows with uPVC frames, and two leaded stain glass windows, one lighting the staircase, the other within the entrance vestibule. Further character is on display within the master bedroom and the dining room with their exposed ceiling beams There is a fully enclosed garden to the rear of the house which includes a large area of paved patio, a small ‘L’ shaped lawn, and a shrub border. The easily kept garden can enjoy long hours of sunshine The property has a deep driveway at the side of the house which leads to a detached Single Garage: Approximately 13’5 x 7’9 (4.09m x 2.36m). This has electric power and light, and three windows. The driveway can accommodate 2/3 vehicles. Surrounding streets incorporate marked spaces for Resident Parking between certain times of day, to discourage use by commuters The popular Newington district lies on the south side of the city, around three miles from Princes Street, close to Grange and Blackford. Regular bus services within the surrounding area run to and from the city centre and other parts of Edinburgh, and easy access can be gained to the city bypass, linking with East Lothian and the M8 and M9 motorway systems, together with Edinburgh International Airport. Many University buildings are close by, while the open spaces of Holyrood Park which surround Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags, are only minutes away, together with the well-known Scottish Parliament building. Such a convenient location affords easy access to many commercial amenities including a wide range of shops, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and bars. The renovated Royal Commonwealth Pool is also within easy reach, while the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre is a short drive away.
