Property highlight: Beautifully refurbished semi-detached villa with private gardens, driveway and garage
Situated within walking distance of outstanding amenities and the much-loved green spaces of Holyrood Park and Lochend Park, this stylish, two-bedroom, semi-detached house has been completely refurbished to provide impressive contemporary accommodation. The home is comprised of a bay-windowed living/dining room, a brand-new integrated kitchen, two double bedrooms, and a brand-new bathroom, as well as landscaped gardens to the front and rear, and private parking for two cars via a garage and driveway. Furthermore, the property is presented throughout in fresh neutral decor allowing new buyers to easily add their own style. It also has full planning permission granted for a wraparound front and rear extension (the plans of which can be seen via the vendor or Edinburgh Planning).
Tucked behind a low-maintenance front garden, the home’s main door opens into an inviting hall that sets the scene for the following accommodation with its white walls and wood-textured flooring. This attractive theme of décor continues into the south-facing living/dining room, creating a truly contemporary environment for everyday use. It has a spacious footprint for a great selection of comfortable furnishings and it features a bay window for an abundance of natural light. There is also a log-burning stove, nestled beside display shelving, which forms a cosy focal point for arranging the space. The new kitchen has a stylish contemporary design, fitted with generous worktop space and handle-less cabinets presented in different colours for the base and wall units. Two built-in cupboards provide pantry-style storage, whilst a gas range cooker and seamlessly integrated appliances finish the ultra-modern aesthetic (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine). Upstairs, the naturally-lit landing illuminates the way to the two double bedrooms. Both rooms are well-proportioned and attractively presented and laid with timber-toned flooring for easy maintenance. Finishing the home is an exquisite contemporary bathroom with a three-piece suite and overhead shower. An efficient gas central heating system and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, there is a fully-enclosed landscaped garden to the rear, which has a sweep of lawn, a timber dining terrace, and a chipped bay for relaxing in the sun. A driveway and attached single garage provide off-street parking.
