Overlooking Musselburgh racecourse and enjoying proximity to the coast, shops and convenient transport links, this duplex upper forms part of a handsome Victorian Terraced Villa and includes four bedrooms with flexible accommodation. Retaining its period charm and grandeur, this home enjoys tasteful and contemporary interiors with high ceilings and original cornices.
The villa is accessed via a ground floor vestibule leading up to a double ceiling first floor hall which benefits from natural lighting through the feature cupola. Wood effect flooring flows into the spacious lounge which is neutrally decorated and yields panoramic views of Musselburgh Racecourse and Musselburgh Links Golf Course. This impressive room features a magnificent period inspired fireplace with a coal-effect fire, Edinburgh press, cornicing and centre rose.
Enjoying a sunny south-facing aspect and classic cornicing, the exceptionally stylish kitchen incorporates a family breakfast bar and is equipped with modern, newly fitted units and worktops with ample storage. The kitchen includes integrated double oven and microwave, five ring induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
Boasting elegant decorative features, the dining room could easily be converted to a double bedroom and benefits from a window seat overlooking the south facing garden. The front facing bedroom is currently being utilised as a home office and has open views to the front of the property and overlooks the racecourse and golf course. The family bathroom is fully tiled, comprising a WC, inset basin, vanity storage, towel radiator and bath with overhead shower.
On the second floor, a landing provides access to the two remaining spacious double bedrooms, which are both generously proportioned, neutrally decorated and carpeted. Integrated wardrobes and access to useful eaves storage also feature, whilst the master bedroom further benefits from the property's south-facing aspect.
The property benefits from gas central heating and secondary/double glazing.
Externally, the villa enjoys access to a front garden area as well as a private well kept, south-facing rear garden incorporating a lawn, attractively bordered by established plant beds, a sizeable patio and a garden shed. Unrestricted on-street parking can be found outside the property.
Excellent educational facilities from nursery to secondary level, including Loretto School (Juniors and Seniors), Scotland's oldest Independent School, are within walking distance. Queen Margaret University is close by on the outskirts of town.
Edinburgh city centre is easily accessible either via the A1 trunk road or by rail from nearby Wallyford or Musselburgh stations. The A1 connects with the City Bypass and in turn with the national motorway network providing excellent road connections to the rest of the country and easy access to Edinburgh Airport, which has a wide range of regular flights to UK, European and international destinations.
