This well presented, spacious two storey detached villa offers a comfortable family home, with the benefit of triple glazing, and gas central heating – fired by a recently installed boiler which retains a 7 year warranty. The easily managed accommodation includes a spacious lounge with direct access to the adjacent dining room featuring patio doors, a large fitted/equipped dining/kitchen leading onto a utility room with appliances and access to the rear garden, the garage and a cloakroom – all on the ground floor. On the upper level you will find four bedrooms – the large master with wall to wall built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, plus a family bathroom including a shower fitting over the bath. Both the en-suite and the family bathroom have a combined light and shaver point. A hatch and Ramsay ladder within the upper hallway give access to a large extensively floored attic area with electric light, offering excellent storage space. Several windows enjoy attractive views, in particular the fourth bedroom (presently used as a study/office) with its stunning panoramic outlook towards the distant Pentland Hills.
A particular feature of the property is the lovely and extensive private garden ground which is fully enclosed. This offers areas of rolling lawn, interspersed with mature trees and colourful shrub borders, all connected by meandering pathways. There is also a large greenhouse within the lower garden, a timber shed, and storage units. The property also benefits from PIR operated external security lights around the perimeter and intruder alarm.
Concrete slab driveways at the front of the property offer off-street parking, and lead to the generous integral Single Garage (Approx 17’5 x 11’6 5.33m x 3.51m) which has power and light, and a side and high level windows.
