Located in sought-after Barnton, this three-bedroom, semi-detached house is brought to market in true move-in condition, following extensive refurbishment that has been completed to very high standards. The outstanding home is accompanied by generous gardens and private parking, and boasts newly-installed fixtures and fittings, including a high-spec kitchen and two quality bathrooms.
Inside 25 Barntongate Drive, you are welcomed by a naturally-lit hall that is defined by attractive décor and sanded wooden floorboards. It offers under-stair storage and leads directly ahead into the kitchen and living room, which share a spacious open-plan layout spanning the width of the home. The living area, lovingly decorated in white and with tasteful accent walls, features a decorative open fireplace and French doors to the garden – perfect for summer entertaining. Meanwhile, the newly-fitted kitchen is brimming with sophistication, enjoying a stylish design that pairs dark blue cabinets with chunky wooden worktops and fashionable metro-style splashbacks. The on-trend look is further enhanced by a breakfast peninsula and a range of seamlessly integrated appliances (ceramic hob, oven, concealed extractor, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher). Located on opposite sides of the hall, at the front of the property, are two double bedroom that enjoy crisp neutral décor and varnished wooden floorboards. Both rooms are bright and airy and well-proportioned. Furthermore, one of the bedrooms has the versatility to be used as a formal dining room, if desired. Finishing the ground floor is a contemporary three-piece shower room, equipped with a double walk-in shower enclosure. Upstairs leads to a store and the principal bedroom, which has a generous king-size footprint and suave interior design. Bathed in dual-aspect light, this impressive room also enjoys lovely garden views and a chic en-suite bathroom. An efficient gas central heating system and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, the home is flanked by manicured gardens to the front and rear. The latter is an idyllic haven for families, coming fully enclosed and featuring a sweeping lawn, a timber deck for relaxing in the sun, and a stone area for summer dining. Also to the front, there is a multi-car driveway and an attached single garage, which has been fitted out with lights, power sockets, hot and cold running water, and plumbing for a washer and dryer.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated appliances to be included in the sale.

Drumbrae Park is home to Drumbrae Leisure Centre – a state-of-the-art sport and fitness hub with a pool, a gym, and fabulous views across the Firth of Forth.
