Enjoying a convenient location in Sighthill, close to local shops and schools and just five miles from the city centre, this two-bedroom lower villa offers a tempting proposition for first-time buyers, young families, city professionals, those looking to downsize and rental investors.

Set back from the road behind a low-maintenance garden, you are welcomed into the villa by an entrance vestibule flowing through to an L-shaped hallway with a large walk-in storage cupboard. To the left of the hall lies a generous living/dining room. Extended by a charming bay window, this reception area offers ample floor space for a variety of lounge and dining furniture configurations, and at the focal point of the room is an elegant fireplace with a cosy coal-effect fire inset. Next door, the south-facing kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base cabinets that have been designed to incorporate space for freestanding appliances, as well as a handy breakfast bar perfect for morning coffee! The villa houses two spacious double bedrooms. The larger bedroom benefits from a wonderfully sunny aspect and lovely garden views, whilst the remaining bedroom incorporates built-in storage. Completing the accommodation on offer is a bright bathroom, comprising a bathtub and a WC-suite. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency. Externally, in addition to a low-maintenance front garden, the villa enjoys a private, south-facing rear garden featuring a well- tended lawn, a shed and a patio.
