Characterised by the appealing proportions, natural light and enchanting features synonymous with the era, this classic 1930s end-terrace villa represents an attractive opportunity to create a fantastic home in sought-after Bellevue. Within easy walking distance of both the city centre and fashionable Leith, the area is hugely popular with professionals and families who are keen to remain in the thick of it!
The property has retained its original bow window, timber-framed sash windows and panelled doors many of which have been lost in neighbouring properties and promises a rare renovation project with tremendous scope for internal reconfiguration and/or extension, subject to obtaining consent. The villa enjoys well-tended gardens to the front and rear, as well as a single driveway and a carport to the side.
Positioned behind a hedge-bound front garden and a gated driveway, the villa instantly conveys a warm and welcoming feel. The original glazed and panelled front door opens into a neat entrance hall, which offers ideal cloak storage and a staircase to the first floor. On the right, the living room is bathed in light from a charming bow window and is supplemented with a generous under-stair cupboard. The tiled fireplace at the focal point of the room is equipped with an electric fire, however, may allow scope to install a log stove or an open fire. The breakfasting kitchen to the rear accommodates two large pantry cupboards, plus an array of vintage cabinets and a clothes drying pulley. The kitchen also benefits from a back door to the southwest-facing rear garden. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bright three-piece bathroom. The double bedroom to the front boasts a feature fireplace and substantial fitted wardrobes. The second bedroom to the rear enjoys a southwesterly aspect and would make an ideal home office, child's bedroom or guest room. The bathroom features a vintage blue suite and provides fantastic scope for modernisation.
The well-tended front garden is bound by low walls and established hedges, and comprises a lawn and a selection of mature shrubs. The gated driveway and carport to the front and side allow off-street parking for two vehicles; controlled parking (Zone N1) is available on McDonald Place. The southwest-facing rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing and comprises a patio, a drying green and two sheds.

Situated at the foot of Edinburgh's New Town, the sought-after district of Bellevue offers an exceptionally tranquil residential setting at the heart of the capital.
When it comes to local amenities, residents are spoilt for choice by the wealth of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs on Broughton Street and vibrant Leith Walk, while the bustling city centre is just minutes' walk away. For exercising and relaxing outdoors, Bellevue is close to an array of public parks and green spaces, including St Mark's Park, George V Park and the Water of Leith, which promises a peaceful stroll or cycle into Stockbridge or The Shore. Calton Hill, with its collection of iconic monuments, is within sight and a brisk hike to the top yields breathtaking, panoramic views across the capital and beyond. While Bellevue is within walking distance of most of the city's attractions and amenities, the area is also very well connected by public transport and cycle routes. Bellevue is well served by the city bus network and is just a few minutes' walk from Waverley Station and the tram terminus on York Place, which provide local and national rail services, as well as fast and frequent links to Edinburgh International Airport. The property falls within the catchment area for Broughton Primary School and St Mary's RC Primary School, followed by secondary schooling at Drummond Community High School or St Thomas of Aquin's High School.
