Situated in sought-after Ravelston, close to the Mary Erskine School and Murrayfield Golf Club, this bright and spacious, end-terrace townhouse offers a desirable location for families, enjoying a leafy green setting within easy reach of amenities and Edinburgh city centre. Furthermore, the property provides flexibility to suit the needs of new buyers, with configurations to support three/four bedrooms and two/one reception rooms. It has the added benefit of two bathrooms (plus a WC), a private garden, and parking for three cars. It also provides the exciting opportunity for a slight modernising touch.
The home’s front door opens into a naturally-lit vestibule that gives way to a hall with under-stair storage. From here, a staircase rises to the first-floor accommodation, leading into the living room. This reception area has a sweeping footprint for a wide choice of lounge furniture, and is perfect for everyday use. It is decorated in light tones and has a focal-point fireplace and patio doors that flow out to the rear garden. A second reception room is across the hall, enjoying a generous array of windows and well-proportioned dimensions. Currently, it is arranged as a dining room, yet it could alternatively be used as a fourth bedroom if required. The kitchen is conveniently next door, coming well-appointed with light timber-toned cabinets and excellent workspace. It has a classic modern style, and is finished with a range of appliances.
The enclosed rear garden captures lots of sun throughout the day
A handy WC completes this level. On the second floor, there are three double bedrooms, all of which come with built-in wardrobe storage. The principal bedroom has the advantage of the largest proportions, as well as a modern en-suite shower room and beautiful views over the rear garden. The remaining bedrooms are served by a three-piece family bathroom. Outside, the enclosed rear garden captures lots of sun throughout the day, enjoying a low-maintenance design that is well-suited to alfresco dining. It also affords access to a large communal garden. To the front, there is a double driveway and an integrated single garage.
Extras: integrated kitchen appliances (electric hob, eye-level oven/grill, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher) and a washing machine to be included in the sale. Please note, no warranties or guarantees shall be provided in relation to any of the moveables and/or appliances included in the price, as these items are to be left in a sold as seen condition.
