Detached House for Sale in Edinburgh
4 Bedrooms | Offers Over £580,000
161 Craigcrook Road, Edinburgh EH4 7SY
Occupying a prime plot on the corner of Craigcrook Road and Hillpark Terrace, this charming detached house boasts four double bedrooms, two reception rooms and two bathrooms, as well as a breakfasting kitchen with an adjoining utility room. The exceptionally bright, spacious and flexible accommodation would now benefit from a degree of upgrading to suit modern standards and may also allow scope for reconfiguration, subject to obtaining the correct planning and building consents. The property is within easy walking distance of the state catchment schools Blackhall Primary School and The Royal High, as well as the private Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools, and is therefore an attractive proposition for young and growing families looking for their forever home. Bounded by established evergreen hedges, the extra-large private garden extends to the front, side and rear of the property, and also accommodates a double garage/workshop and a two-car driveway.
Nestled on a tranquil residential street, the house sits back from the road behind manicured lawns framed by mature rose bushes. The front door is sheltered within a stone porch and opens into a generous reception hall. To the right is the vast living room, which stretches the entire depth of the property and offers almost 34m2 of flexible space to suit endless configurations. The room boasts triple-aspect windows, including patio doors onto the rear garden, as well as a living-flame gas fire flanked by a built-in cupboard and display recess. The living room is supplemented with a formal dining room to the front, which benefits from a convenient serving hatch into the large breakfasting kitchen to the rear. Well-appointed with extensive fitted storage and workspace, the breakfasting kitchen is supplemented with a generous utility room, which houses a selection of freestanding appliances and a utility sink. Dual external doors in the utility room allow access to the rear garden and the garage via a small rear yard. A good-sized three-piece shower room and a useful under-stair cupboard complete the ground floor.
Upstairs, the light-filled landing features four exceptionally bright, well-proportioned double bedrooms and an airy three-piece bathroom with a shower-over-bath. The master bedroom boasts twin fitted wardrobes, while the second and third bedrooms incorporate walk-in wardrobes. Double-glazed windows, gas central heating and cavity wall insulation ensure excellent home efficiency. The property also benefits from an intruder alarm.
The well-tended wraparound gardens have been beautifully landscaped to include expanses of lawn, established rose bushes and mature hedges. The southwest-facing rear garden is particularly private and secluded, providing a secure outdoor space for children and pets. Accessed from the utility room or living room via patio doors, the rear garden features a suntrap patio and a manicured lawn that is perfect for relaxing and entertaining al fresco in the summer months.
The property enjoys off-street parking for four cars by way of a two-car driveway (with scope for enlargement) and a double garage/workshop with an automatic door and water/power supplies. EPC D
