Situated in popular Liberton, this three-bedroom, three-reception room, two-bathroom detached bungalow lies close to local amenities and under three miles from the city centre. The home provides spacious and flexible accommodation and offers exciting opportunities for modernisation and upgrades.
The front door is tucked under a practical porch and approached via a pathway flanked by leafy shrubbery, and an entrance vestibule welcomes you inside, flowing through to a hall with built-in storage. On your left, you step into the first reception area: a living room. A characterful southerly-facing bay window floods the room with sunny natural light and a fireplace flanked by an Edinburgh Press adds further charm to room, which offers ample space for lounge furniture layouts. Next door, a dining room provides an ideal setting for seated family meals and entertaining, and a homely fireplace (flanked by a built-in cupboard) creates a warming focal point. The dining room affords access to a conservatory – a versatile, light-filled third sitting area with direct garden access. The kitchen conveniently neighbours the dining room and is fitted with wood cabinetry and workspace, with integrated appliances including a raised double oven, an electric hob, and an extractor fan. An undercounter fridge and a washing machine are also included, alongside a chest freezer which is housed in a hall cupboard, and the kitchen is supplemented by built-in storage and a clothes pulley. Also accessed from here is a home office with a garden entrance.
The bungalow accommodates three bedrooms, all accompanied by built-in storage and offering plenty of space for freestanding furniture. The principal bedroom further benefits from an en-suite shower room. A bathroom completes the accommodation and comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a basin set into storage shelving, and a WC. Gas central heating and double glazing (with the exception of the principal bedroom) ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally, the bungalow is enveloped by beautifully-maintained gardens to the front, side, and rear, with large areas of manicured lawn, colourful, leafy plant beds and shrubbery, and neat hedges. Excellent private parking is provided by an attached double garage and a driveway.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, washing machine, fridge, and chest freezer will be included in the sale. Some furniture is available by separate negotiation.
The suburb of Liberton offers the kind of village atmosphere that makes it hard to believe that you are just 3 miles from the heart of Edinburgh. The area is mainly residential with a high concentration of tranquil green spaces on your doorstep. With a range of shops close by, including Cameron Toll Shopping Centre, housing major supermarkets and high-street retail outlets, and more traditional everyday amenities in the older parts of Liberton itself, there is no need to travel to the centre for shopping. Regular day and night bus services ensure fast and convenient travel links to the city centre and beyond. Liberton offers reputable state schools at primary and secondary level and is ideally located for Edinburgh University’s Kings Buildings and Napier University. Liberton offers great outdoor pursuits, from a relaxing stroll in the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Local Nature Reserve, football or picnic in Liberton Public Park, pony trekking in the nearby Braid Hills (which can be accessed via a pathway to the rear of the property) or a round of golf at Liberton Golf Club, which enjoys panoramic views of the city.
