77 Chesser Crescent, Edinburgh EH14 1SW
With a swift and easy commute into Edinburgh city centre and excellent transport links, this traditional two-bedroom lower villa occupies a prime location in Chesser. It's within strolling distance of the Water of Leith, local shops, schools and supermarkets, and neighbours the popular areas of Slateford, Shandon and Gorgie.
Whilst the interior requires extensive refurbishment, 77 Chesser Crescent is characterised by outstanding proportions and natural light, and presents an exciting development project for those looking to create their ideal home in an ideal location.
Set back from the road behind a south-facing private garden, the faade of the property impresses from the outset with modern roughcast render and a softly curving roof with exposed eaves. Inside, the front door to the lower villa opens directly into a vestibule and then into a hall with built-in storage. To the right, you'll find a generous south-facing living/dining room, which boasts a traditional gas fire and a picture window with diamond- leaded toplights. Next door is the kitchen, which overlooks the rear garden. In need of full refurbishment, this space offers lots of potential: it's a good-size and also features a rear hall with a back door to the garden. Opposite the kitchen and the living/ dining room are two spacious double bedrooms. The larger, south-facing bedroom to the front also features a sizeable built- in wardrobe. Completing the property is a three-piece bathroom with a toilet, a pedestal basin with under-sink storage and a bathtub with an overhead electric shower. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure warmth and comfort all year round.
Outside, this lower villa benefits from a private, south-facing front garden that's beautifully landscaped and enclosed by established hedges, as well as a private rear garden that offers plenty of space for family get-togethers and summer barbecues. Ample on-street parking is also available. EPC Rating - E.
