98 Bonnyrigg Road, Eskbank EH22 3HZ
Striking the perfect blend of period charm and modern décor with contemporary fixtures and finishings, this Victorian semi-detached house in Eskbank boasts four double bedrooms, two reception rooms and a dining kitchen, and a wealth of beautifully-preserved original features, plus low-maintenance gardens and a detached single garage.
The house represents an ideal family home and lies conveniently close to fantastic local amenities.
A welcoming first impression is given of the house with its sandstone exterior and slate roof, and the mint-green front door opens into large entrance vestibule with handsome original floor tiles, elegant accent wallpaper and delicately- detailed cornicing, giving a glimpse of the accommodation to follow. From here, a door leads through to an airy hall with handy built-in storage, original pine flooring, muted décor, and the same cornicing as the vestibule.
Neighbouring each other to the right of the hall is a living room and a formal dining room.
Firstly, the living room enjoys identical presentation to the hall, offering the perfect understated backdrop for future styling and contributing to a wonderfully light and airy ambience, which is further heightened by a southeast-facing bay window with a panelled surround. The room offers ample floorspace for numerous furniture configurations and a delightful period fireplace (flanked by an Edinburgh Press) creates a lovely, homely focal point.
The formal dining room is set quietly towards the rear of the property and peacefully overlooks the garden.
The perfect setting for family meals and entertaining, the dining room enjoys elegant proportions and plenty of space for a large table and chairs and further furniture, and, like the living room, features an original fireplace and an Edinburgh Press.
Continuing along the hall, you reach a dining kitchen.
Here, set in a wide galley-style configuration, which allows for a further casual dining area, is an excellent selection of contemporary cabinets, framed my chic metro- tiled splashbacks, rich iroko wood worktops, and eye-catching patterned floor tiling. A Stoves range cooker is neatly housed within the cabinets and paired with an integrated hood, whilst further integrated appliances include a full- size fridge, a full-size freezer, and a wine cooler, and an undercounter dishwasher is also included. A utility cupboard in the hall offers a discrete laundry area and houses a washing machine. The kitchen features two garden entrances, including wide patio doors opening onto a patio perfect for alfresco dining and summer barbecuing!
Ascending the stairs to the first floor, you reach a landing (with storage) lit by a magnificent cupola and affording access to three of the four double bedrooms on offer.
The master bedroom enjoys similar proportions to the living room, as well as a southerly-facing bay window flooding the room with sunny natural light. The generous sleeping area is elegantly- presented with neutral décor, a stylish accent wall, classic cornicing, and a cosy fitted carpet. The remaining bedrooms also enjoy tasteful décor and cornicing and offer plenty of space for furniture. The fourth and final bedroom and a bathroom are accessed from a split-level landing. The fourth bedroom also enjoys neutral décor and a carpet and retains its original cornicing. The family bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a WC-suite, and a chrome towel radiator. Finally, a large loft space, accessed from the first floor landing, offers fantastic storage space or could alternatively be used as a hobby room or home office. The home is efficiently heated by a gas central heating system, with individually controlled Hive thermostats on every radiator, and benefits from double- glazed windows.
Externally, the house is flanked by low- maintenance gardens to the front and rear.
