Detached House for Sale in Edinburgh
4 Bedrooms | Offers Over £525,000
1 Craigcrook Square, Edinburgh EH4 3SH
Standing proud in a large corner plot this sunny south facing detached villa is situated in one of the most sought after peaceful streets in the heart of Blackhall. This classic 1930s property requires some updating and renovation but has amazing potential and would make a superb family home. The property is arranged on 2 floors with 4 double bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, a large kitchen, front and rear gardens and an attached garage.
Tucked back from the road behind an idyllic front garden, with a manicured lawn and bordering hedgerows, the main door to the home opens into a welcoming vestibule. A glazed door leads directly through to the hall for a bright and airy reception, reinforced by crisp white décor and classic timber panelling. It offers useful under-stair storage and (at the foot of the stairs) an enclosed cloakroom with lots of space for coats, before flowing into the very generous living/dining room, which has excellent proportions for a wide selection of comfortable lounge furniture.
The front-facing room is flooded with warm afternoon sun from a south-facing window, framing lovely garden views. Light neutral wallpaper, subtly patterned with an embossed motif, and snug carpeting add to the airy and cosy atmosphere. A fine gas fireplace, with a marble surround and carved mantelpiece, forms an attractive centrepiece to the room designating the living area, whilst a space beside internal glazing to the kitchen forms an ideal dining area for socialising with friends and family.
Also with a south-facing profile, a sitting room provides an additional reception area with more comfortable dimensions for a relaxed and intimate setting, ideal for spending time with the family. The room sees lots of natural light from a bay window and benefits from neutral décor, plus there is an electric fire with an ornate mantelpiece as a warming focal point for arranging furniture.
Conveniently beside the living/ dining room with a picturesque garden outlook, the dining kitchen enjoys a sizeable footprint with plenty of room for an 8-person dinner table and chairs ideal for sociable family meals and entertaining whilst cooking. With a U-shaped design to maximise space, the kitchen sports a classic monochrome look with light cream cabinetry and complementary splashback tiles, paired together with black granite-effect worktops. The setup houses a pantry-style cupboard and incorporates a freestanding fridge-freezer, dishwasher, gas cooker, and washing machine.
Located throughout the home are four generous double bedrooms, three of which come fitted with large wardrobe fixtures for convenience. All of the rooms are presented in light neutral tones, with two bedrooms situated on the ground floor for ease of use and the remaining bedrooms on the first floor, served by vast under-eaves storage, built-in cupboards, and attic space for rarely used belongings. Completing the spacious accommodation on offer is a good-size bathroom, which is located on the lower level, offering a bright outlook, mint green tiling, and a three-piece suite including a shower-over-bath. Double glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.
In addition to the front garden, the home benefits from a beautiful rear garden that is mostly laid to lawn and fringed by well- tended mature bushes and plants. It comes fully-enclosed for pets and playing children, and offers outstanding privacy. It is a very sunny space with a handy greenhouse for growing vegetables, a shed for storage, and a summerhouse for catching the sun whatever the weather. Additionally, an attached single garage and driveway provide off-street parking for two cars. EPC Rating: D.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, freestanding kitchen goods, a garden shed, greenhouse, and summerhouse to be included in the sale.
