Nestled at the foot of the Pentland Hills Nature Reserve and within strolling distance to the shops, eateries, schools and Curriehill train station, 38 Riccarton Crescent will appeal to families looking for a relaxed lifestyle, surrounded by unspoilt nature, within an easy commute to the city centre. Perched on a hill, the house comes with vast garden grounds, beautifully landscaped to create a wonderful outdoor haven for those with green fingers, children, and pets. Although lovingly maintained over the years, the house now requires modernisation and offers its new owners an opportunity to create their dream family home. Set back from the road behind a front garden and drive, the front door opens into a porch, which in turn gives way to the reception hallway. Located at front of the property is a generous living room with a large bay window. From here, double doors open into the dining room. Accessed from either the dining room or the hallway, is the kitchen, with direct garden access. Upstairs, the house comes with three bedrooms (all with built-in cupboards) and a family bathroom with a three-piece suite. Double glazing and electric central heating are found throughout. Externally, in addition to the private drive and large garage, the property benefits a versatile room which could be used as a workshop or drying area. In addition to the private front garden, the particularly large sunny rear garden is landscaped to create terraces and a patio area. The grounds boast a greenhouse, a summerhouse and two handy garden sheds. Close to the Pentland Hills and the Water of Leith, Currie borders the historic village of Balerno. Surrounded by lush woodland, and with rivers and reservoirs right on its doorstep, it is hard to believe that Edinburgh city centre is only six miles away. Currie, and the neighbouring villages, cater for all your daily needs with two mini supermarkets, independent retailers, restaurants, traditional pubs, cafes, hairdressers, beauty salons and a library. The Balerno Farmers Market promises takes place every second Saturday of the month. The area has a local primary and secondary school and private education is on offer a short drive away; it is also ideally situated for Heriot-Watt University. Home Report £315,000 EPC: E
