49 Lockharton Avenue, Edinburgh EH14 1BB
Promising an idyllic suburban setting just three miles from the heart of Edinburgh, this traditional two- bedroom, two reception room upper villa lies on the edge of Craiglockhart Nature Reserve and comes with a private sunny balcony promising tranquil pond views.
The villa boasts well-presented, generous and flexible accommodation, with the potential to adapt the home to a three-bedroom property, and is further supplemented by a private front garden and access to unrestricted on-street parking.
The front door affords access to a ground floor vestibule laid with practical wood-styled flooring, where stairs lead up to the first-floor accommodation, leading off a spacious entrance hall. This welcoming hall is neutrally decorated and carpeted and adorned with a coving detail and a picture rail; a finish reflected in the home's two reception areas. Immediately on the left, you step into a generous living room extended by a bay window. In addition to excellent space for comfortable furniture, the room boasts an understated fireplace, with a homely fire, and access to a useful deep store cupboard. Across the hall, a southerly-facing kitchen is conveniently adjoined to a formal dining room. With a charming original sash window framing wonderfully leafy views, the bright kitchen comes equipped with fitted cabinet storage, workspace, a freestanding electric cooker, a washing machine, and a tall fridge freezer. A practical clothes pulley and a built- in pantry cupboard are also included. The large, equally sunny dining room, also accessible from the hall, is heightened by more delightful views and a living flame fire, set into an attractive classically styled surround. Perfect for entertaining in the summer months, the dining room opens onto an expansive southerly-facing balcony. With a scenic waterside position and ample space for a table and chairs, the sunny balcony (with access to a handy outdoor store) offers a lovely area for relaxing and taking in the home's natural surroundings, abundant with birds and wildlife.
Featuring comfortable fitted carpeting and a coving detail are two double bedrooms. The larger bedroom is appointed with wall-to-wall bespoke fitted wardrobes, whilst the second bedroom benefits from a built-in store cupboard and a quiet rear-facing position, with a southerly-facing original sash window offering further pleasant views. Finally, an aqua-panelled wet room includes a modern WC-suite and an easily accessible shower area. The property is heated via electric heating and is partially double-glazed.
Externally, the villa is accompanied by a private front garden, whilst on- street parking on Lockharton Avenue is unrestricted. EPC Rating - G.
