Enjoying a tranquil residential setting, this traditional bungalow offers wonderfully bright and spacious interiors, delightful views to Holyrood Park, a beautifully landscaped and sunny garden, two/three bedrooms with two/three reception rooms, plus private off-street parking by means of a private drive and garage.
Although the property would now benefit from cosmetic updating, it offers a fantastic family home where the new owners can put their own stamp on it, or even extend, if the necessary permissions are obtained.
Set back from the road behind a walled front garden, a pathway leads to the front door. A handy vestibule welcomes you in, giving access to an L-shaped hallway, with built-in storage. Overlooking the front garden from its large bow window, is the spacious living room, arranged around a focal living flame gas fireplace. This room could also be used as a master bedroom, as this property comes with another two reception rooms. Situated at the rear, with direct access to a wonderfully sunny conservatory, is a formal dining room. The generous footprint of the conservatory makes it ideal as a third reception room, with garden access via large French doors. The lovingly maintained galley-style kitchen offers fitted wall and base units, a freestanding cooker, space for undercounter appliances and two built-in cupboards. It also comes with a back door leading to the side garden. The first bedroom boasts a tranquil and sunny rear garden aspect from its bowed window, a generous size, and a fitted cupboard, whilst the second bedroom (overlooking the front garden) is also a comfortable double bedroom. Completing the internal accommodation is an airy three-piece shower room. The bungalow benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, in addition to the front garden, this property enjoys a sunny, landscaped rear garden. The fully enclosed garden offers a large lawn, supplemented by colourful planting, walkways, and a garden hut. Private parking is by means of a gated drive, leading to a single garage.
Extras: included in the sale are all the fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, cooker, and the garden hut.
