Viewing is highly recommended for this extensive family home offering flexible accommodation. The property is well located to take advantage of good shopping facilities at both Fort Kinnaird Retail Park and Portobello. Local recreational facilities include several golf courses, Holyrood Park, Portobello beach with promenade, multi-screen cinema and fitness gyms. There is easy access to the city centre from a good public transport service along with park and ride train stations also available nearby. The A1, City Bypass and motorway networks are also within easy reach.
The property has been well maintained over the 50 years the current seller has owned it however it would now benefit from modernisation and upgrading. Entered through a vestibule the property opens to a welcoming entrance hall with a large understairs storage cupboard and a shelved linen cupboard. The bay windowed lounge is to the front with a plain cornice and a storage cupboard. The open plan living/dining room is to the rear with a gas fire within a Scottish quarried stone fireplace and windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen is off the living/dining room with a range of wall and base units, gas hob, oven and grill, under counter fridge and dishwasher. Bedroom one is to the front mirroring the lounge with a bay window and wash hand basin. Bedroom two is to the rear with fitted wardrobes along one wall. A partially tiled bathroom with 4-piece coloured suite comprising bath, wash hand basin, W.C. and shower off the mains completes the downstairs of the property.
A staircase from the living/dining room takes you to upstairs to the further three bedrooms with two to the front and another to the rear which could be used as a home office/study. A W.C. off the landing with 2-piece suite and linen cupboard off completes this property.
The property is situated within a large plot with generous outside space. To the front there is a lawn area with mature shrubs and a single car driveway. To the rear the garden is divided into two separate areas. The garden features a manicured lawn and patio for al fresco dining with a vegetable plot to the side of the property. At the bottom of the garden there is a hard stand with access from Duddingston Rise with space for multiple cars or a variety of uses. There is also a garage/workshop with an up and over door in addition to a storage lockup ideal for those who like to tinker. The space would be excellent as storage, for cars/vans and could be developed further subject to planning and consents.
