Recently refurbished throughout, this traditional two-bedroom lower villa represents a prime opportunity for first-time buyers, young families and downsizers to acquire a pristine home in Pilton. The property enjoys a favourable southerly aspect, private gardens, ideal off-street parking and is just seconds’ walk from Ainslie Park Leisure Centre.
The front door is tucked to the side of the property and opens into a good-sized hall with a walk-in store. Grey oak-effect flooring and fresh white walls instantly set the tone for the immaculate accommodation to follow. The semi-open-plan living/dining room and kitchen stretches the entire rear width of the property and provides a fantastic setting for everyday life and entertaining. The living/dining room boasts a charming fireplace flanked by recessed storage and shelving, and in the warmer months can be extended onto the rear garden via patio doors. The brand-new fitted kitchen comprises contemporary timber-effect cabinetry and white worktops, plus an integrated four-burner gas hob, a chimney-style hood and an electric single oven/grill. Further space is made for an undercounter and freestanding appliance. The property enjoys two double bedrooms and a generous box room, which would lend itself to various uses such as a home office, study or nursery. The bright bathroom is styled in grey hues and features an electric shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, an inset basin with storage and a close-coupled toilet. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally, to the front there is a gravelled driveway bordered by established hedges and a small lawn. To the rear there is a raised deck and a small patio area with a handy storage unit and a wooden bench. The property also has access to a shared drying green. As well as the sought-after driveway, there is also ample unrestricted on-street parking available.
Pilton is an established residential area northwest of the city centre. The area offers an array of affordable housing and due to its proximity to the city centre (4.5 miles) and easy access to the A90 and the city bypass, the location is an ideal choice for first time buyers and investors. There are local amenities, including banks, a post office, library and health centre and two Morrison’s supermarkets, along with extensive shopping at nearby Craigleith Retail Park. Schooling is available from primary to secondary level and Edinburgh College can be easily reached on nearby West Granton Road. Home Report: £145,000. EPC BAND: C.
