Lochend, Edinburgh Located just two miles from the centre of Edinburgh, the largely residential district of Lochend boasts a fantastic setting just off bustling Easter Road, and bordering the thriving area of Leith. Residents enjoy an outstanding range of local amenities, including a wonderful mix of bars, cafes and eateries, and a diverse range of shops, from small independent stores to high-street retailers. The area is also in close proximity to several supermarkets and excellent shopping facilities at Meadowbank Shopping Park. Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice by the number of parks and green spaces nearby, including Lochend Park, Leith Links and beautiful Holyrood Park, home to iconic and imposing Arthur's Seat. For sport and fitness, Meadowbank Sports Centre is set to re-open in 2020, following a multi-million-pound redevelopment, and will host a state-of-the-art gym, sports halls and indoor/outdoor athletics facilities. The property falls within the catchment area for Hermitage Park Primary School and the Leith Academy. Lochend is served by convenient transport links into the centre of Edinburgh and further afield, with the city bypass and motorway network also accessible. This appealing three-bedroom semi-detached house offers a quiet, yet central location in Lochend, less than two miles from the city centre and close to the area's delightful country-style park. The extended modern home enjoys stylish interiors, two good-sized living areas, a low-maintenance garden, and excellent private parking with a large driveway. On opening the front door, you step into a bright hall affording access to a sunny and spacious living room. Benefiting from a southwest-facing aspect and flexible floor space for furniture, this congenial sitting area is attractively presented with subtle decor, enhanced by rich wood-styled flooring and decorative feature wallpaper. The room also boasts useful built-in storage and is conveniently connected to the kitchen. Appointed in chic monochrome tones, the modern kitchen comes fitted with a good selection of white cabinets with granite-style countertops, framed by gloss-black metro wall tiles. The space has been designed with an integrated electric oven and hob (including a concealed hood), a dishwasher, and a washing machine, whilst a freestanding American-style fridge-freezer (in stylish silver) is also included. An internal window pleasantly overlooks an additional reception area, reached from the kitchen via a glazed door. This versatile family room, with space for formal dining and comfortable seating, boasts a ceiling skylight for an airy ambience and access to the rear garden, handy for summer entertaining. On the first floor, a landing, with built- in storage and access to the loft via a pull-down ladder, leads to three well-presented bedrooms. These comprise two doubles with incorporated storage and a versatile single bedroom, which is also ideal as a home study. The bedrooms to the front of the property both enjoy a sunny, southerly- facing aspect, whilst the sumptuously decorated master bedroom, with a mirrored fitted wardrobe, is peacefully located to the rear. Finally, completing this appealing city home is a bright, three-piece bathroom with tasteful tiling, complete with a contemporary WC suite, a double-ended bathtub, an overhead rainfall shower, and a glazed screen. The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system, with a Nest thermostat, and is double glazed throughout for outstanding year round comfort and efficiency. Externally, the house is accompanied by a rear garden with handy gated access from the side of the property. The garden is paved for easy up-keep and proves perfect as a barbequing and dining area.
