This stylishly presented and modernised 1930s detached bungalow, boasts delightful views, magnificent landscaped gardens, four double bedrooms, a garage and private drive, plus potential to further extend if desired.
Offering an idyllic family-friendly setting between Arthur’s Seat and Edinburgh’s sandy beaches, this spacious four-bedroom traditional detached bungalow (over two floors) enjoys beautifully modernised interiors, with hardwood flooring and contemporary fixtures, making it an ideal move-in ready family home.
Nestled behind a manicured front lawn, the entrance to the charming sandstone property opens into a handy vestibule, which in turns gives access to an L-shaped hall with an open staircase. Overlooking the front garden from its large bay window is the sunny living room. At its focal point is a recently installed gas-fire with a polished mantelpiece and hearth, beautifully complemented by crisp décor, decorative coving, an open Edinburgh Press with glass shelving (lit by integrated lights), and hardwood flooring.
At the rear of the property, with lovely garden views and direct access to the garden, is a family-sized dining kitchen. The stylish kitchen has been fitted with an outstanding range of wall and base units, framed by large Corian worktops and neatly integrated with a recently installed 5-ring ceramic hob, a double eye-level oven, a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher, and a washing machine. With space for a large table and chairs, it is the ideal space to relax, dine and entertain in.
The ground floor houses two of the four bedrooms – both spacious double bedrooms (one fitted with a mirrored wardrobe). A luxury four-piece bathroom, with electric underfloor heating and contemporary fixtures completes the accommodation on this floor.
Upstairs, leading off a central landing fitted with a WC, are the two remaining double bedrooms. Both have been fitted with comfortable carpets and offer delightful views from large windows, with the fourth bedroom further benefiting from excellent fitted storage space. Gas central heating (via a combi-boiler under warranty) and double glazing throughout ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally, the walled rear garden enjoys lots of privacy and sunlight and an expansive manicured lawn. Beautifully landscaped with flower beds and leafy greens, the garden also includes two patio areas to enjoy al fresco dining and summer barbecues. It is a large enough space to provide excellent scope for a generous rear extension (with the necessary planning consents). At the front of the home, an attached single garage and a monoblock driveway provide off-street parking for two.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings and window blinds, light fittings, integrated appliances, and a bike shed to be included in the sale.
