Detached Bungalow for Sale in Edinburgh
3 Bedrooms, Offers Over £500,000
55 Milton Road West, Edinburgh EH15 1QX
Features & Description
Nestled between Portobello High School and Duddingston Golf Course, this beautifully upgraded and stylishly presented detached bungalow offers its new owners an ideal family home with three bedrooms, garden office, and a garage. It further comes with a floored attic with full planning permission and a building warrant in place to extend.
Set behind a front garden, the traditional twin bay property makes a wonderful first impression. A vestibule welcomes you in which gives way to a generous hallway lit by a skylight. Once inside, the quality upgrades are immediately visible, and the property enjoys a wonderful balance between period features and stylish, contemporary family living.
Overlooking the front is a welcoming living room with a bay window (fitted with wooden shutters) and a fireplace, ideal for cosy winter nights.
At the rear is the true heart of this home: a magnificent open plan breakfasting kitchen with a separate dining area, where bi-fold doors lead to the sunny south-facing rear garden.
The kitchen has been fitted with contemporary wall and base units and an island, neatly hiding a range of integrated appliances including a double oven, a microwave/grill oven, gas hob with extractor hood, a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, wine fridge, and washing machine.
The home features three bedrooms: a generous principal bedroom with a bay window (fitted with wooden shutters), a traditional fireplace and wardrobe space. The second bedroom, overlooking the rear garden, is a double, while the third and sunny bedroom is a generous single. A fabulous four-piece contemporary bathroom, with a freestanding bath, a corner shower and a WC-suite completes the internal accommodation.
Externally, this house keeps on giving. From the bi-fold kitchen doors you access a deck and a paved patio, which in turn gives access to a large and fully enclosed garden all south-facing. In the corner of the garden is a stylish home office (which is fully insulated and features with mains electricity, internet cable hardwire connection to the main house, and external plug points), and the zoned garden comes with lawned areas, pathways, flowers, shrubs, raised vegetable beds, and scented herbs, as well as a children's play area currently housing a sunken trampoline. The garden also comes with a lovely greenhouse and a garden storeroom. Parking is well-catered for by a private drive and a single garage, with a small storeroom.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings (excluding lampshades), and integrated kitchen appliances will be included in the sale.
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. And of course there is no shortage of outdoor pursuits, from walking, cycling and hiking in Holyrood Park, to a round of golf at Duddingston Golf Club. The area is served by fantastic local services and amenities, particularly on nearby Portobello High Street, which is lined with an array of traditional shops and business, plus a handful of thriving cafes, pubs and restaurants. Popular with families looking for a more relaxed lifestyle (without leaving the city limits), Duddingston is within the catchment area for excellent local schools, and its close proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass and the A1 allows swift and convenient travel across the city and further afield. Nearby Brunstane train station and several bus routes also provide comprehensive public transport links, day and night.Read more
