17 East Bay, North Queensferry KY11 1JX
With the iconic Forth Rail bridge as its backdrop, this charming, unique detached house in North Queensferry forms part of a small, exclusive development and enjoys four bedrooms, several reception areas, and three bathrooms, plus a private balcony, low-maintenance gardens, a double driveway with a car port, and a detached single garage.
The house instantly endears with its partial brick exterior and pantile roof, and once inside, generously-proportioned rooms, neutral décor and contemporary touches throughout create an attractive home, designed with the modern family in mind. The front door opens into a practical entrance vestibule, flowing through to a central hallway with space for furniture items. Straight ahead, double doors open into a wonderfully bright and spacious kitchen with patio doors leading out to the garden. Here, arranged around a central breakfasting island is a fantastic selection of country-style, cream- coloured cabinets accompanied by honey-toned wood worktops, offering a wealth of storage and housing integrated appliances including a waist- height electric oven, an eye-level microwave, a gas hob, a fridge, and a dishwasher. This leaves plenty of room for a comfortable seating area, and an adjoining utility room (with external access) houses a range of cabinets, a freestanding fridge/freezer and a washing machine. A dining room is conveniently connected to the kitchen by double doors and can also be accessed form the hall. This substantial, dual-aspect room offers generous floorspace for at least an eight- seater dining table and further furniture.
The ground floor is also home to three of the four bedrooms on offer, served by a family bathroom. The bedrooms (two doubles and a single) all incorporate built-in wardrobes and one enjoys a sunny aspect and rear garden views. The contemporary, fully-tiled four-piece bathroom comprises a bathtub, a separate, double walk-in shower, a basin set into storage, and a toilet.
From the hall, a charming spiral staircase leads to a first-floor landing, which in turn affords access to a living room, a home office, the master suite, and a shower room. The spacious double-aspect living room enjoys a semi open-plan layout to a snug, with both areas offering flexibility for various furniture layouts. The living room enjoys neutral décor enhanced by a cosy fitted carpet and a handsome period-inspired fireplace, whilst the snug boasts a wraparound balcony with lovely views of the adjacent harbour. The master suite stretches the entire depth of the first floor and boasts a walk-in closet and an exceptionally spacious, chicly-tiled en-suite shower room with a deluxe walk-in shower, a basin with incorporated storage, a toilet, and a towel warmer. Finally, the shower room comprises a corner shower enclosure, a basin set into storage, a toilet, and a chrome towel radiator. The home is heated by an efficient gas central heating system (with underfloor heating in the kitchen) and benefits from partial double-glazed windows throughout. Also, the property has solar panels installed to rear of house and benefits from the Scottish Power Energy Cashback scheme. Outside, the house is accompanied by low-maintenance gardens to the front and rear. The rear garden enjoys views of the Forth Rail Bridge and features several seating areas, a raised plant bed, and a greenhouse. Excellent private parking is provided by a double driveway, incorporating a car port, and a detached single garage.
