A south-facing detached bungalow in affluent Ravelston, offering three double bedrooms, a generous living/dining room, two well-tended gardens, and a driveway and garage.
Whilst the property requires a modernising touch, the home's outstanding potential for contemporary living is self-evident. In addition, the large rear garden could easily accommodate a sizeable extension to increase the home's accommodation, if desired and subject to the relevant planning permissions. Furthermore, the property has a leafy green, family-friendly setting in a prime location, close to the fashionable stores of Craigleith Retail Park and superb transport links into Edinburgh city centre.
Set back from the road behind a south-facing front garden, the home's main door opens into a vestibule, leading to a hall with storage. On the right is the living/dining room, which has generous proportions for comfortable lounge furniture and a dinner table. It is a light-filled reception area that is flooded in warm afternoon sun from two south-facing windows. Plus, it features a built-in cupboard for on- hand storage.
In the adjacent kitchen, the spacious footprint has real potential to become a contemporary feature of the home. It offers garden access, and is currently fitted with wood-style base and wall cabinets and ample worktop space, housing a range of freestanding appliances (cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and washing machine). Furthermore, there are two built-in cupboards supplementing the kitchen with additional storage. Plus, it has direct access to the rear garden via a small flight of stone steps.
On the opposite side of the hall are three spacious and airy double bedrooms. With the largest proportions, the principal bedroom has an attractive colour palette and honey-coloured, wood-inspired flooring, as well as a bay window for natural light. The second bedroom has a peaceful rear garden aspect, with a handy washbasin and wooden floorboards that could be sanded and primed or carpeted, depending on the new owners' style and needs. The third bedroom, on the other hand, has versatile dimensions for alternative uses, such as a home office. Finishing the home is a bright bathroom with a three-piece suite and handheld shower. Double-glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year-round comfort and efficiency. For additional storage, there is an attic and a cellar (accessed from the rear garden.)
Outside, the fully-enclosed rear garden has excellent privacy and a sweeping lawn for summer enjoyment. It also offers a patio for summer barbecues and plenty of scope for an extension (subject to consent). A driveway and an attached single garage provide off-street parking. EPC Rating - D.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, and freestanding kitchen appliances are included in the sale.
