Characterised by appealing proportions and period features, not to mention vast garden grounds and off- street parking, this traditional detached villa promises a wonderful family home in popular Craigentinny. The three-bedroom home has already been extended, however, offers tremendous scope for further development or internal reconfiguration, subject to obtaining planning consent. Tranquil Goff Avenue is just seconds' drive from Sir Harry Lauder Road for swift access to the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass, and is a short ten-minute stroll to Portobello Beach. Set behind a walled front garden, the villa endears with its attractive stone fade and bay window. The welcoming vestibule provides practical space for coats and shoes and flows into the hall via a stained-glass panelled door. At the end of the hall you reach the spacious living room, which enjoys west- facing windows onto the rear garden and a fireplace fitted with a stove. The dining kitchen adjacent is fitted with ample storage and workspace, plus an integrated gas hob, double oven/grill and extractor hood. There is also scope for freestanding appliances and a central dining area. The dining kitchen affords access to both the rear garden and the garage, which in turn can be accessed via a small enclosed yard to the front. All three double bedrooms benefit from generous proportions and wonderful natural light, particularly the master bedroom owing to its charming bay window. The three-piece bathroom completes the accommodation, and features a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen and a pedestal basin and toilet suite. The property is equipped with a combination of double-glazed UPVC windows and traditional single-glazed timber windows. Gas central heating ensures year-round comfort and efficiency. The villa benefits from generous enclosed gardens to the front and rear; the west-facing rear garden is particularly large and provides plenty of space for a rear extension, subject to obtaining planning consent. The rear garden also accommodates two garden sheds, a summerhouse and a greenhouse. The single garage and gated driveway allow off-street parking for two vehicles. EPC Rating - D. Extras: all fitted carpets and floor coverings, window coverings and light fixtures to be included in the sale. Lying in the north-east of Edinburgh, the tranquil suburb of Craigentinny is located less than three miles from the city centre and neighbours the seaside town of Portobello, with its much-loved sandy seafront. The area is within easy reach of numerous well-stocked shopping areas, including Meadowbank Shopping Park, which boasts a large supermarket and an array of other high-street retail outlets, and Portobello's delightful range of independent shops, cafes and eateries. Its enviable coastal location offers a scenic setting for water sports and outdoor recreation, including a relaxed round of golf at nearby Craigentinny Golf Course. Furthermore, next year residents of Craigentinny will also be able to enjoy state-of-the-art sport and fitness facilities at the new Meadowbank Sports Centre, which is set to re-open in autumn 2020 following a multi-million-pound refurbishment. Craigentinny is served by excellent transport links in and out of the city, including 24-hour bus services, and is conveniently-placed for access to Edinburgh City Bypass and the motorway network. The property falls within the catchment area for Craigentinny Primary School and well-regarded Leith Academy, whilst many of the capital's reputable independent schools are also easily accessible.
