Spacious and bright period bungalow offering two substantial reception rooms, kitchen with garden access, three large double bedrooms, family bathroom and wet room, plus delightful sunny gardens, private gated drive, and a garage.
Nestled at the foot of the gigantic Holyrood Park and only a short commute to either the city centre or Edinburgh’s seaside, this spacious period bungalow offers its new owners an opportunity to create a modern family home to their own taste. Although already a good size, the property could even be extended or reconfigured (with the necessary planning consents) to create a dream home. Lovingly maintained over the years and now in need of some modernisation, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-reception room family home comes with light-filled interiors, a sunny garden, plus a drive and a garage.
Situated behind a walled front garden, the bungalow instantly endears with its stone façade and large box bay window. A vestibule welcomes you inside and in turn, gives access to a reception hallway. Overlooking the sunny rear gardens from its enormous windows is a generous living room with direct garden access, a fireplace, and a built-in cupboard. At the front of the property is the second spacious reception room, also filled with light from a large box bay window with front garden views, a fireplace, an Edinburgh Press, and a built-in cupboard. A kitchen, with side garden access, comes with two windows and ample wall and base units.
The ground floor houses two of three double bedrooms. Both ground floor bedrooms benefit from twin windows with garden views, generous footprints, and built-in cupboards. Completing the ground floor accommodation is wet room fitted with a WC-suite. Upstairs, a bright master bedroom awaits with double-aspect Dorma windows, built-in storage and a neighbouring bathroom fitted with a three-piece suite and a large window. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, in addition to the walled front garden, the property enjoys a large and sunny rear garden laid to lawn with mature colourful planting and shrubs. A long, gated driveway to the side of the property leads to a single garage, offering ample private off-street parking.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, light fittings and window coverings included in the sale.

Nestled at the foot of majestic Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags, Duddingston offers a unique village setting, yet is just two miles east of the city centre. With the vast open spaces of Holyrood Park and Duddingston Loch to the west and the golden sands of Portobello Beach to the east, residents have some of the capital’s most outstanding natural landscapes and views right on their doorstep. There is no shortage of outdoor pursuits, from walking, cycling, and hiking in Holyrood Park, to a round of golf at Duddingston Golf Club. The area is served by fantastic local amenities, particularly on nearby Portobello High Street, which is lined with an array of traditional shops and business, plus a handful of thriving cafés, pubs and restaurants. Popular with families looking for a more relaxed lifestyle (without leaving the city limits), Duddingston is within the catchment area for excellent local schools, including Parsons Green Primary School and Portobello High School, and its close proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass and the A1 allows swift and convenient travel across the city and further afield. Nearby Brunstane train station and several bus routes also provide comprehensive public transport links, day, and night.
