Closing date: Thursday 20th August 2020 at 12:00 Nestled within idyllic, sheltered gardens and offering convenient off-road parking, this charming traditional four-bedroom bungalow lies in the sought-after suburb of Colinton, just over four miles from Edinburgh city centre and conveniently close to the City Bypass. The ideal family home promises generous, light and airy accommodation, including two south-facing reception rooms, and will appeal to those seeking a suburban retreat with huge development potential. The home is entered via a front vestibule or a side porch, both affording access to a spacious hall with useful built-in storage and a handy WC. The hall is pleasantly decorated in neutral tones and carpeted for an inviting impression. Leading off the hall is an elegant living room that is brightly lit by a south-facing box window, framing a leafy garden vista. Presented in classic ochre and adorned with a cornicing detail, this characterful sitting room provides a generous space for furniture and is supplemented by a stone fire surround and an Edinburgh Press for display items. Leading off the living room (benefiting from a south-facing position) is a sunroom with garden access – a delightful spot for relaxing on summer days. Adjacent to the main reception area is a kitchen, flowing into a wonderfully sunny dining room, with windows to three sides creating a congenial space for family meals and entertaining. The dining room boasts garden access and useful built-in shelving. Illuminated by triple windows, the bright kitchen (though requiring modernisation) is currently fitted with cabinets and a countertop, integrated with a dishwasher. A freestanding gas cooker (with an integrated hood), a fridge, and a washing machine. Located within the home are three double bedrooms and a large single bedroom, with three of the rooms (including the single) housing built-in storage. Feature fireplaces can be found in two of the double bedrooms, including the master which enjoys all-day sun via dual-aspect windows. Completing the accommodation on offer is a bright, aqua-panelled bathroom replete with a WC, a basin with a mirrored wall-mounted cabinet, and a walk-in bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen. The property is partially double-glazed and heated via gas central heating. Accessible from the hall, is an attic that provides extensive additional floored storage and huge potential for further development, subject to the appropriate permissions. Outside, beautifully maintained wraparound gardens promise a generous, sunny and secluded area for recreation. The gardens, with a greenhouse and useful shed, incorporate neat lawns, mature trees, established planting and flower beds. A gated, gravelled driveway provides parking for multiple vehicles.
