‘Rarely available one-bedroomed semi-detached bungalow with scope for improvement’

1 bedroom
1 public room
1 bathroom

**CLOSING DATE SET THURSDAY 26TH JANUARY @ 12 NOON** This 1970’s semi-detached bungalow is quietly located beside Portobello which has an award-winning sandy beach and classic Victorian promenade. Properties of this style are rarely available and it could easily be transformed into a charming home (46 sqm) by further cosmetic modernisation.  The bungalow is equally suitable as a letting/investment opportunity given rentals in this popular coastal area are in high demand. Accommodation is all on ground level and entered into a hallway with a deep walk-in cupboard. There is a very bright living room, separate fitted kitchen, a double bedroom (complete with mirrored wardrobes) and a modern shower room.  It also benefits from a distant view of the Firth of Forth and a loft providing additional storage space.

Gas central heating is complemented by UPVC double glazing.

The bungalow has level private gardens to the front and rear.  There is unrestricted on-street parking.

The fitted carpets, oven, hob and hood are included.

The prosperous suburb of Portobello (Edinburgh’s seaside) is three miles west of Edinburgh’s City Centre and minutes away from fast main road networks.  It offers all the many benefits of seaside living including a modern swimming centre and Kayaking & sailing and rowing club.  There are numerous local shops, Scotmid, Aldi, good schools and a wide variety of recreational pursuits. A choice of golf courses and several major supermarkets are readily accessible.  Regular bus services operate and Brunstane Railway Station is a brisk 10-minute walk away.

The property has been valued at £160,000 to reflect the requirement for minor upgrading and the Home Report is available via the ESPC web site.

The flat lies in Council Tax band B and has a C-rated Energy performance certificate.
