Nestled peacefully within the delightful and popular Leith Links colonies, this three-bedroom end terrace double upper villa represents a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful period home, brimming with unrivalled charm, in simply stunning move-in condition.
The property is accessed via a wrought-iron gate and a private west-facing front garden (which is screened by high privet hedge), with a pathway leading to the front door. On entering, you are greeted by a traditional entrance vestibule complete with original floor tiles, from here a staircase ascends to a welcoming reception hall. The spacious sitting room is bathed in natural light from recessed windows and oozes period charm - from the rustic stripped floorboards, working wooden shutters to the ornate ceiling rose. At the focal point of this elegant room is a sought-after working fireplace flanked by a traditional Edinburgh Press cupboard. The wonderful kitchen/dining room boasts a wealth of space for cooking and socialising, as well as an array of gloss-white cabinets framed by solid timber worktops, a full range of integrated appliances, a useful pantry and a convivial peninsula unit. The generous dining area can easily accommodate a large dining table and chairs and also features a contemporary wall mounted living flame gas fire and a delightful window seat. The spacious office enjoys an abundance of natural light and would also lend itself to various configurations. Completing the first floor level is a delightful bedroom and a desirable WC. The master bedroom enjoys a dormer bay window and substantial floor space.

Completing the accommodation is a contemporary fully tiled four-piece bathroom. The property benefits from gas central heating, double glazing, ample unrestricted on-street parking and an enclosed private garden to the front of the property.
