Set in Edinburgh's increasingly popular northern quarter alongside desirable Trinity and vibrant Granton, Boswall offers a wide range of housing options to suit all stages of life. Residents enjoy excellent local services and amenities right on their doorstep, including an express supermarket, a post office and a newsagent, plus a large Morrisons supermarket just five minutes' drive away. Ferry Road is lined with a charming selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, all the way to trendy Leith and The Shore. For sport and fitness enthusiasts, Ainslie Park Leisure Centre boasts a 25-metre pool, a gym, a multi-purpose sports hall and a programme of fitness classes for all ages and abilities. For those who prefer to exercise outdoors, Boswall Green is just a few seconds' walk from the property and is home to Wardie Bowling Club. Inverleith Park and Granton waterfront are also within easy walking distance. Nursery and primary schooling is provided at Wardie Primary School, followed by secondary education at highly-regarded Trinity Academy. Thanks to its close proximity to the Ferry Road thoroughfare, Boswall allows easy access to Edinburgh City Bypass, the Queensferry Crossing and the M8/M9 motorway network. The area is also served by convenient public bus routes and pedestrian/cycle paths.
Enjoying a tranquil setting in established Boswall, opposite a public green and within easy walking distance of excellent local amenities and transport links, this traditional semi-detached villa offers a prime renovation project for young families and professionals.
The three-bedroom property now requires extensive upgrading to realise its full potential and may allow scope for extension, subject to obtaining planning and building consent. The villa boasts a low-maintenance garden and driveway to the front, plus a secluded, south-facing garden to the rear.
The property is approached via the low- maintenance front garden and driveway, which is walled and gated for privacy and peace of mind. Welcoming you inside is a good-sized hall with built-in storage. On the left, the spacious living/dining room is bathed in light from dual- aspect windows, including south-facing glazed doors onto the rear suntrap patio. The generous kitchen adjacent also enjoys a sunny, south- facing aspect to the rear and flows into the triple-aspect sunroom, which represents an ideal dining space with direct access to the garden. Alternatively, there may be potential to replace the sunroom with a new extension, subject to obtaining planning and building consent. The kitchen is currently equipped with ample fitted cabinetry and workspace, plus an integrated electric oven and hob. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a three-piece bathroom. Upstairs the property boasts two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The master bedroom features dual-aspect windows to the front and rear, as well as substantial fitted wardrobes. The property is equipped with double-glazed windows and is heated by way of electric storage heaters, plus an electric fire in the living/dining room.
The walled front garden is chipped for minimal maintenance and extends along the side of the property. The front garden also incorporates a single (gated) driveway, which is supplemented with ample, unrestricted parking on Boswall Crescent. The enclosed rear garden enjoys an enviable south-facing aspect and would now benefit from some attention, however, has been also been chipped for easy upkeep and features a selection of mature shrubs and trees, plus a garden shed and a handy covered area for storing bikes, outdoor equipment etc. The public green opposite also provides a fantastic space for playing, relaxing and exercising outdoors.
Extras: the property is to be sold as seen, including all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fixtures and white goods.
