Enviably set on leafy Duddingston Avenue, enjoying views of iconic Arthur’s Seat, this three-bedroom (plus a box bedroom) two-bathroom semi-detached house promises an outstanding family home, with versatile, modern interiors and a contemporary, open-plan dining kitchen. The spacious, traditional property further benefits from extensive, mature gardens and a mono-blocked front driveway and enjoys a sought-after city location with access to excellent amenities and schools, and within easy reach of first-class road and rail links.
Set quietly back from the road, the front door opens into an entrance hall which is airy and welcoming, with crisp-white décor, and modern, wood-styled flooring. From here, you step into a well-proportioned living room (with storage), extended by a wide bay window and enhanced by a characterful, log-burning stove, framed by a chunky timber mantle and flanked by open display shelving. Accessed from here, a double bedroom, with garden access, is currently being utilised as additional, flexible living space.
Also leading off the living room, and supplemented by further storage, an impressive, open-plan area stretches to the rear of the property, incorporating a contemporary kitchen, a sociable breakfast bar, and a generous space for seated dining, enjoying a backdrop of triple-aspect garden views.
The kitchen area features gloss-white cabinetry, a modern range cooker, an American-style fridge/freezer and an integrated dishwasher (with a washing machine discreetly housed in the cupboard), and the area extends onto the garden for easy al fresco dining. A shower room completes the ground-floor accommodation.
Upstairs, two double bedrooms (one with display shelving) enjoy generous dimensions, whilst a box bedroom provides a goodsized, versatile setting for a nursery or a study. Completing the accommodation, a family bathroom features a bathtub with an overhead shower, a WC, and a pedestal sink. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout. Externally, the home enjoys an extensive rear garden. Full-enclosed, and bordered by a selection of established trees and shrubs, the garden is mostly laid to lawn, and features a large, paved patio and a garden shed. A monoblock front driveway provides convenient, private parking
Nestled at the foot of majestic Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags, Duddingston offers a unique village setting, yet is just over two miles east of the city centre. With the vast open spaces of Holyrood Park and Duddingston Loch to the west, and the golden sands of Portobello Beach to the east, residents have some of the capital’s most outstanding natural landscapes and views right on their doorstep
