Ideal for those seeking a semi-rural setting, with scenic surroundings and excellent commuting links, this two-bedroom end-terrace cottage enjoys tranquil views and is conveniently situated close to the City Bypass and just 20 minutes' commute from the heart of Edinburgh. The traditional stone-built property could benefit from some internal modernisation, allowing the new owner the exciting opportunity to put their stamp on the interiors. Externally, the cottage is accompanied by low-maintenance gardens, a driveway, and a detached garage.
Reached via a paved garden, the front door opens into a practical vestibule housing a handy cupboard for coats and shoes. Leading of the vestibule is a generous, southerly-facing reception area, extending the full depth of the cottage with a bright, dual-aspect outlook and access onto the rear garden. This sunny and spacious room can easily accommodate both comfortable seating and dining furniture and is presented with fitted carpeting, neutral décor, and characterful natural wood finishings. Bringing warmth to the room in colder months is a multi-fuel burning stove nestled into a rustic stone surround, whilst two built-in cupboards (one housing the hot water tank) provide hidden storage. Handily reached from both the vestibule and the reception room, is a galley-style kitchen (with garden access) fitted to one side with mahogany-styled cabinetry and a countertop, and, to the other, a casual breakfasting bar set beneath a handy serving hatch to the living area. Integrated appliances comprise an eye-level oven and an electric hob, whilst a freestanding washing machine is discreetly housed within an adjoining utility area. Under counter space for a fridge freezer is also provided. Ascending stairs from the reception area, you reach a bright landing affording access to a double bedroom and a good-sized single bedroom, both comfortably carpeted and benefiting from a sunny southerly-facing aspect. The double bedroom is supplemented by a built-in store cupboard and a deep fitted wardrobe. Finally, completing the accommodation on offer is a bathroom, well-lit by a large skylight and appointed with a WC, a basin set into excellent vanity storage, and a bathtub with an overhead shower. The property benefits from oil fire heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the cottage enjoys a rear garden, with unspoilt country views, laid with gravel for easy upkeep and incorporating a partially enclosed patio and an attached external boiler store. The paved front garden is favourably south-facing and includes a gated parking area and a detached single garage.
