6 Redford Drive, Edinburgh EH13 0BL
Situated within a quiet residential area in one of Edinburgh's most sought after districts, this charming detached chalet-style bungalow offers spacious accommodation over two levels including three double bedrooms, two impressive bay-windowed reception rooms, delightful private gardens, and a detached garage/ workshop and driveway.
Well placed for local amenities, schools, and transport links, the property represents an excellent family home; although it requires a degree of modernisation, it allows new buyers the chance to add their own touch and finish.
Set quietly back from the road behind a gated front garden, the main door opens into a handy vestibule with practical terracotta floor tiles and then into a welcoming L-shaped entrance hall with under-stair storage. Here, a homely impression is immediately created by cosy carpeting and traditional styling, which flows throughout the rest of this appealing home. On the right, the impressively proportioned living room is filled with light from a large bay window overlooking the south-facing front garden. Sat adjacent to useful storage and a display space, a cosy fire with a traditional surround provides a lovely focal point in this comfortable reception room, where there is ample floor space for a generous arrangement of both lounge and dining furniture, providing a congenial setting for relaxing and socialising. On the opposite side of the hall is a wonderful dining room with a bay window framing tranquil garden views, creating a peaceful setting for formal dinner parties and sociable family meals. With garden access, the well-appointed kitchen is conveniently adjacent, housing a good range of base and wall cabinets and generous worktops, incorporating a freestanding cooker, washing machine, and fridge. Practical wood-styled flooring completes this bright and functional space. Two of the three double bedrooms (one with convenient storage) are located on this level: both are elegantly proportioned and characterised by a different aspect, offering various configurations for freestanding bedroom furniture and wonderful scope for creative styling.
A good-size family bathroom completes the ground-floor accommodation. A carpeted staircase winds up to the notable master bedroom where twin dormer windows yield inspiring views toward the Pentland Hills. It creates an extra dimension in this sunny and spacious bedroom, which is supplemented by generous eaves storage. Gas central heating ensures year-round comfort.
Externally, the property is nestled within attractive gardens. The south-facing front garden features a well-tended lawn, whilst the rear garden offers an expansive lawn and a drying green, framed at the bottom by an array of mature trees and shrubs an idyllic setting for summer socialising and alfresco dining. A gated chipped driveway and a single detached garage/workshop, with an attached shed for storage, provide off-street parking for multiple cars.
