Characterised by the classic proportions and features synonymous with the era, this 1930s semi- detached house represents a rare opportunity to create a contemporary family home in Craigleith.
The four-bedroom property is just a short stroll from desirable Comely Bank and Stockbridge, as well as the catchment schools Flora Stevenson Primary School and Broughton High School.
Having retained a charming selection of original features, including timber-framed sash windows, the house would now benefit from refurbishment to suit modern lifestyles and may allow scope for internal reconfiguration or extension, subject to obtaining planning and building consent. The substantial wraparound gardens accommodate a detached single garage and further off-street parking for three cars, as well as a secluded south-facing garden to the rear.
Set back from the road behind a low-maintenance garden, the yellow-painted front door opens into a glazed entrance vestibule. Inside, the wide entrance hall instantly impresses with high ceilings and wonderful natural light. To the right, the living/dining room is bathed in light from dual-aspect windows: a bay window to the front and a southwest-facing window to the side. This elegant reception room measures almost 27 square metres and falls naturally into dedicated zones for relaxing and dining. The sunny kitchen allows access to the rear garden and is well-appointed with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus two walk-in stores and a handy under-stair cupboard. The ground floor also accommodates two bright and spacious double bedrooms, the largest of which features a fireplace and a press cupboard.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a contemporary shower room, comprising an accessible walk-in shower, a wall-mounted vanity washbasin and a toilet.
From the hall, the handsome staircase curves up to the light-filled landing and here there are two further double bedrooms, both of which enjoy dual-aspect windows to the front and south-facing rear. The larger bedroom boasts an en-suite WC and a fitted wardrobe; the smaller incorporates a generous built-in cupboard. The property is fitted with a combination of original single-glazed sash windows and more recent double-glazed windows, and is heated by way of a gas central heating system and electric panel heaters.
The gated driveway extends along the side of the house to the detached single garage to the rear and easily accommodates three cars. The secluded, south-facing rear garden is landscaped to include a neat patio, a manicured lawn and a selection of matures shrubs and trees. EPC Rating - D. Extras: The property shall be sold as seen, including all fitted floor coverings, window coverings and light fixtures.
