Compact 1920's mid terraced villa requiring improvements quietly located beside Holyrood Park.

2 bedrooms
1 public room
1 bathroom

Closing Date for offer set. This Edwardian terraced house (70sqm) is quietly located beside Holyrood Park with far-reaching views of the Firth of Forth. The property is of solid brick construction and despite requiring modernisation, it will appeal to purchasers of all age groups seeking a character home with private garden ground.  The classic entrance vestibule opens into a hallway which has a staircase rising to the upper floor. A bay-windowed public room featuring a Living-flame gas fire is positioned to the front. The kitchen/breakfast room has a sunny aspect, external door to the rear garden and versatile utility area. Both bedrooms are doubles and the bathroom is bright.

Gas central heating is complemented by UPVC double glazing.

There is a small gated front garden and tiered west-facing rear garden which has been designed for ease of maintenance.  There is a handy garden store.

Occupying an elevated position, Lilyhill Terrace is an extremely quiet street in which properties seldom become available. It forms part of the Meadowbank/Willowbrae residential district which is directly bounded by the delightful Holyrood Park.  Always a popular choice in East Edinburgh, it is less than two miles from Princes Street and quite literally a few minutes car/bus journey away from Portobello (Edinburgh’s seaside), Duddingston Loch and several golf courses. A host of amenities are immediately accessible including large supermarkets, a church, library, tennis/squash courts, convenience stores, hairdresser, schools and a newly completed sports complex.  Excellent bus services operate and there are a number of cycle routes.

The carpets, kitchen appliances and blinds are included in the sale price.

The property has been valued by surveyors at £285,000 to reflect its current condition.  The Home Report is available via the ESPC web site.

The EPC rating is C and it lies in Council Tax band D. Viewing is by appointment with the Agent - telephone 0131 229 3399 (or 0759 58 20611 out with office hours).
