C Listed Victorian terraced villa located in a tranquil location with magnificent sea and city views and close proximity to Musselburgh town centre. The property retains many original features but now requires general upgrading.
2 Mountjoy Terrace is a rarely available stone built Victorian villa which enjoys a most sought after location overlooking Fisherrow Links and towards the Edinburgh skyline. The property is located on a ‘no through’ road and is bounded by Loretto playing fields to rear giving it an extremely peaceful position. Although now in need of some modernisation it boasts many period features throughout including ornate cornice work, high ceilings and fireplaces. The generously proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors but also benefits from a full height cellar currently used for storage but with potential for conversion. The terrazzo tiled vestibule acts as an impressive entrance to the property and leads through to the large hall which is flooded with light from the above cupola. A delightful bay windowed sitting room is situated to front whilst there is a formal dining room to rear along with a kitchen diner, pantry, utility room and WC. Upstairs there is a wonderful master bedroom with the most spectacular open views, plus three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Garden and Parking
The property has a lovely, walled garden to front and a sizeable rear garden which is fully enclosed and predominantly paved for ease of maintenance. There is a detached single garage with up and over door plus unrestricted on street parking.
