**UNDER OFFER** Enjoying a tranquil yet convenient setting in the popular residential district of Craigentinny, and just ten minutes’ walk to Portobello beach and promenade, this traditional three bedroom mid-terraced villa has been meticulously modernised to create a contemporary family home.
The property boasts the appealing proportions and period features synonymous with the era, including classic 1930s internal doors, stripped floorboards and a stunning original fireplace. To the rear is a vast private garden with a versatile summerhouse and to the front the villa enjoys a low maintenance garden and unrestricted on-street parking.
The traditional mid-terraced villa instantly impresses with its stone façade and wide bay windows. Welcoming you inside is a practical entrance vestibule, followed by an inviting reception hall. Here stripped floorboards and crisp white walls create a fresh and contemporary feel. The west-facing living room is flooded with light from a large bay window and a dark grey feature wall provides a striking backdrop for the exquisite original fireplace, which is flanked by a traditional press. At the heart of this family home is the magnificent dining kitchen with patio doors opening onto a sunny rear deck. The gloss-white fitted kitchen conceals a wealth of storage, and houses a range of integrated appliances. The convivial space is supplemented with a dual-aspect utility room plus a generous two-piece WC/cloakroom. The mid-level landing is bathed in light from a cupola and accommodates a stylish three-piece family bathroom. Ascending to the upper landing, here there are three double bedrooms to the front and rear respectively. The principal double bedroom to the front enjoys a westerly aspect and views towards Arthur’s seat, while the second to the rear is equipped with extensive fitted wardrobes plus views towards the sea, and the third bedroom enjoys plenty of floor space for bedroom furniture. Also on this level are two generous landing cupboards. The villa benefits from an intruder alarm, gas central heating powered by a modern combi boiler and double glazing throughout. The low-maintenance front garden is enclosed and boasts a useful garden store; the long suntrap garden to the rear is afforded maximum privacy and seclusion by tall fencing, and offers scope to extend the property to the rear (subject to relevant planning consents). The rear garden is landscaped to include two decked seating areas at either end of a vast manicured lawn, two sheds, plus a charming summerhouse with light and power.
