50 Edinburgh Road, Peebles has been sympathetically upgraded and modernised, with works including a new kitchen and shower room, new flooring and decor, and extensive garden landscaping. Owing to its elevated plot, the bungalow boasts terraced gardens to the front and rear and yields views of the scenic countryside.
Positioned behind a manicured lawn, the bungalow instantly endears with its twin bay windows and natural stone facade. Welcoming you inside is a tiled vestibule with a glazed door into the hall. Here high ceilings, panelled doors, classic cornices and picture rails instantly set a traditional tone for the accommodation to follow. The living room on the right enjoys the evening sun, as well as countryside views from its west-facing bay window. Its feature fireplace is flanked by a built-in display cabinet and storage, which is supplemented with a press cupboard. The equally-spacious dining kitchen to the rear benefits from dual-aspect windows to the south and east, and allows access to the enclosed rear garden. The space has been recently remodelled with Shaker-inspired cabinetry, oak-effect worktops and hexagonal splashback tiles, and is replete with a full range of appliances.
The bungalow accommodates two large double bedrooms, both of which boast a feature fireplace and a press cupboard. Completing the accommodation is the bright and airy shower room. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round home comfort and efficiency.
The west-facing front garden accommodates a shed and a secure side gate leading to the enclosed, non-overlooked rear garden, which has been landscaped to include a lawn/drying green, a sundeck and second shed. Unrestricted on-street parking is available on Edinburgh Road.
The Royal Burgh of Peebles is a hidden jewel in the beautiful Scottish Borders, renowned for its picturesque setting on the River Tweed. The historic market town has retained an increasingly rare and unspoiled ambience, and has become something of a destination for shopping, arts and culture. The quaint town centre boasts a wide range of independent shops and business, which are supplemented with a select few high-street stores and supermarkets. There is no shortage of everyday essentials, including banks, pharmacies and a post office, plus a choice of restaurants, bars and cafés frequented by locals and visitors alike.
Popular with families, Peebles is served by three primary schools and a high school, and is also well-placed for excellent private childcare and independent schooling options. Peebles is just over twenty miles from Edinburgh and thus represents an attractive location for those looking to escape to the country. Commuters are just thirty minutes’ drive from Edinburgh City Bypass, which in turn allows easy access to other major road networks, Edinburgh Airport and the Forth Road Bridge.
