Quietly positioned within an exclusive modern development on the banks of the River Esk, this traditionally-styled four-bedroom, two-bathroom house promises a tranquil semi-rural setting that is conveniently located on the doorstep of excellent local amenities and schooling, and within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh.
Tucked within a sheltered portico entrance, the front door opens into a practical vestibule with storage. Leading further into the home, a welcoming hallway neatly conceals additional storage and a handy WC and, accompanied by sleek timber-effect flooring and airy décor, flows into a living room on the right. Impressively spanning the entire depth of the property and filled with an abundance of natural light, the reception room’s tasteful neutral backdrop serves to heighten its generous proportions, whilst versatile floorspace provides a wonderful setting for comfortable lounge furniture arrangements. Across the hall, and synchronising perfectly with the home’s streamlined, contemporary presentation, a spacious kitchen is configured to incorporate a generous seated dining area, bathed in afternoon sunlight from a west-facing aspect and creating a perfect setting for family meals and formal entertaining. Beautifully appointed with stylish wood-inspired cabinets, the sophisticated design discreetly integrates an oven, a gas hob, a statement extractor hood, a microwave, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, whilst an adjoining utility room (with garden access) houses further cabinetry and a washer/dryer. Upstairs, leading off a bright central landing with storage, four double bedrooms are carpeted for comfort, supplemented by built-in storage and echo the generous, versatile proportions which characterise this appealing family home. The front-facing master bedroom additionally enjoys the luxury of its own en-suite shower room, featuring a glazed shower cubicle and a contemporary WC-suite. Finally, a family bathroom, appointed to the exacting standard of the en-suite, houses a modern three-piece suite with a shower-over-bath. Gas central heating, double glazing and a solar panelled roof ensure optimal comfort and cost-effective living.
Externally, the home sits within well-tended private gardens. The enclosed rear garden is favourably east-facing and mostly laid to lawn. A detached single garage and a driveway provide private, secure parking.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances and the washer/dryer.
