Features & Description
Well-proportioned traditional semi- detached house in Barnton.
Enjoying a tranquil leafy setting on a quiet cul-de-sac in desirable Barnton, this well- proportioned traditional semi-detached house boasts three double bedrooms and generous semi open-plan living accommodation, plus an extensive southwest-facing rear garden, a multi-car driveway, a large floored attic and an attached single garage/workshop.
Benefiting from proximity to excellent local amenities, schools and transport links, enjoying swift access into the city centre, and offering exciting scope for modernisation and the opportunity to be purchased with all items of furniture, the conveniently-located property promises a fabulous family home within a sought-after city postcode.
Tucked quietly back from the road behind a walled front garden and a sweeping driveway, the front door opens into a bright entrance vestibule which leads, in turn, into a spacious hallway with under-stair storage and a handy WC. To the right of the hall, a reception room strikes the perfect balance between spacious and cosy.
Extended by a box window, generous proportions promise an abundance of floorspace for chosen configurations of comfortable lounge furniture, arranged around a focal point fireplace, flanked by traditional open shelving. Plush carpeting and soft-toned décor create a relaxing ambience and flow, through glazed double doors, into a dining room, conveniently connected to the kitchen by a serving hatch, and offering space for a family-sized dining table and chairs - perfect for both casual meals and formal entertaining. Glazed sliding doors provide a wonderful garden backdrop and extend the convivial area outdoors.
Separate hall access leads to the sunny, well- equipped kitchen. Supplemented by built-in pantry storage and appointed with a range of modern white cabinetry, an expanse of wood-styled worktops, and a background of understated tiling, the kitchen incorporates an integrated Stoves double oven, a ceramic hob, and a statement, stainless-steel extractor hood, along with a freestanding washing machine. Leading off the kitchen, a versatile utility cupboard houses a freestanding fridge/ freezer and yields handy garden access.
Accessed from a naturally-lit landing on the first floor, three double bedrooms echo the home's generous proportions. All three are carpeted for optimal comfort and accompanied by built-in storage. Serving the sleeping areas and completing the appealing accommodation, a good-sized family bathroom features attractive timber panelling and characterful tiling, and comes replete with a bathtub with an overhead shower, a pedestal sink, a WC, and a wall-mounted, mirrored vanity cabinet. There is also a large floored attic easily accessed by a three section folding ladder. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round efficiency and warmth.
Externally, the home is accompanied by an extensive, southwest-facing rear garden characterised by an expanse of lawn, mature trees, and a raised stone bed with colourful planting. Tucked behind an established hedge, and accessed via stone steps, a further generous area, with a greenhouse, is chipped for ease of maintenance, and could represent a wonderful kitchen garden or an ideal children's' play area. The walled front garden includes a paved multi-car driveway, bordered by an attractive array of mature trees and shrubs, leading to an attached single garage/workshop. EPC Rating: D.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, the freestanding washing machine, the fridge/ freezer and the greenhouse. All items of furniture can be included in the sale if desired.
