This bright, fresh and beautifully presented, fully furnished modern detached villa, has recently been refurbished throughout.
This (NON HMO) house comprises a welcoming hallway with wc on the left side and a glass door on the right side leading to a light and airy lounge, with feature fireplace and lovely leafy views overlooking the front garden and the wood beyond. The lounge is adjoined by sliding glass French doors leading into the south facing dining room, which also has glass doors giving access out onto a patio area, with outside table and chairs in a fully enclosed private back garden, which is mostly laid to lawn with borders of mature trees, plants and flowers. The back garden is a very peaceful place to be and on some evenings you can even hear the water flowing in the burn, in the wood opposite. Another door in the dining room opens into the fully fitted modern kitchen, equipped with a large Siemens fridge freezer, a brand new AEG oven, gas hob, extractor hood, dishwasher, microwave and TV. The kitchen leads into a separate utility room, housing a gas combi boiler, a Samsung washing machine and separate Bosch tumble dryer. There is also an under stairs walk in storage cupboard off the kitchen.
The staircase in the hallway takes you up to a bright upper landing and 4 double bedrooms, all fitted with double wardrobes (please note one bedroom is used as TV/study room and has a sofa bed) and the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with basin, toilet and dual fuel towel rail. Also upstairs, is a family bathroom with basin, toilet, dual fuel towel rail, a bath tub and overhanging electric sports shower and off the landing, there is a walk-in laundry cupboard with shelving. There is excellent water pressure in the house so it is possible to have both showers running at once without noticing any difference.
The property further benefits from GCH, double glazing and private parking in the front drive. Due to its south facing aspect and many windows, the house is suffused in natural light and the windows at the front of the house overlook an old wood; inhabited by a variety of birds and wildlife. There is also a garden shed around the side of the house.
The house is located in a private leafy development within the popular residential area of Liberton, which is approximatey 4 miles south of the city centre. There are many golf courses in the area, and wide open spaces like the Braid Hills, along with the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve which offer a variety of beautiful walks and medieval Craigmillar Castle is just a 15 minute walk away. As well as being located close to nature, the house is also only a short drive away from the city bypass (giving swift access to Edinburgh Airport and the motorway network). Outside the development and approximately a 5 minute walk from the house, there is the main road with a cycle path lane which leads down to Newington, then the meadows, the city centre and beyond. There is also a bus stop outside the development providing many well serviced bus routes. Newington, a night life area and where the majority of Edinburgh University buildings are located, is just a 10 minute bus (or cycle) journey away. By foot, Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and the BioQuarter is just 10 minutes away, the King's Buildings (also part of Edinburgh University) is about 20 minutes and Cameron Toll Shopping Centre is also about 20 minutes. Morrisons supermarket and petrol station is located approximately a 10 minute walk away (or 2 minute drive) from the house. There is an even larger selection of shops, restaurants, leisure facilities and other amenities to choose from, at Straiton Retail Park which is just 10 minutes away by car (on the bypass) or going in the opposite direction is Fort Kinnaird Retail Park which is approximately 15 minutes by car.
This property would provide a quiet peaceful home for a non-smoking professional / professional couple, who appreciate being close to nature and the outdoors, but also want to be close to the city centre and nightlife areas. It would be ideal accommodation for anyone relocating to Edinburgh, possibly for a fixed period of time to work at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, the Bio Quarter, Edinburgh University, in the city centre or somewhere with links to the bypass.
Please note -This is NOT an HMO property.
