‘Impressive recently upgraded detached bungalow with enclosed garden and parking’
UNDER OFFER. This charming detached 1930’s bungalow boasts many recent improvements and an enhanced layout (118 sqm) over two floors. The property is in fresh, neutral decorative order throughout and its timeless character including stripped floors is enhanced by many contemporary additions. The accommodation is extremely versatile and will appeal to purchasers of all ages including mature/disabled buyers. The comfortable living room now flows into a flexible study area with staircase overlooking the garden. Also to rear, the bright dining room is now open plan and benefits from a set of modern French doors. The most stylish refitted kitchen/breakfast room boasts sleek cabinets in popular grey complete with integrated appliances including a wine cooler. There is also a large double bedroom plus a particularly attractive bathroom (providing both bath and a wide step-in shower enclosure). An attic conversion created two further double bedrooms and a handy store room upstairs. It was re-wired in recent years and smoke detectors installed.
Gas central heating was only installed in 2020 and there is PVC double glazing and double glazed roof lights.
The well-proportioned garden with several ornamental trees is very private and almost fully enclosed. It enjoys a very sunny south/south east position to rear featuring an extensive quality stone patio which is perfect for al fresco dining. A wide hardstanding creates off-street parking for two cars.
Near Bonnington, Pilrig Gardens is a small development of bungalows in which properties seldom become available. This almost ‘hideaway setting’ is bounded by the 19th century Rosebank Cemetery and set back from Pilrig Street which was the historic division between Edinburgh and Leith. It is also right beside Pilrig Park and the Water of Leith Walkway. There are cycle tracks and it is a few minutes away from the excellent transport services and tram stop on Leith Walk. Less than one mile away is Edinburgh’s vibrant East End and the impressive St. James Quarter Shopping Mall.
The mortgage valuation is £500,000 and the link to the Home Report is available on the ESPC web site.
The property lies in Council Tax band F and has a D rated Energy Performance Certificate.
Viewing is by appointment with the Agent 0131 229 3399 (or 075958 20611 out with office hours).
The fitted carpets, oven, hob, wine cooler washing machine and fridge/freezer are included in the sale.
