SOLD - SUBJECT TO CONCLUSION OF MISSIVES
Owing to its prime corner plot, 66 Duddingston Road West benefits from large private gardens on three sides, which enjoy a favourable southerly and westerly aspect, and boasts substantial off-street parking for several vehicles: namely two driveways and a detached double garage. Inside the property offers a wealth of flexible space for any growing family and has retained a wealth of delightful period features.
The front door opens into an inviting terrazzo-floored vestibule, followed by the impressive central hall, whose high ceilings are adorned with classic arches, corbels, cornices and picture rails. The living room is bathed in light from south and west-facing windows and the room boasts original wood floorboards and a feature fire surround. The living room flows into the dual-aspect dining kitchen, which can also be reached directly from the hall. Arranged in a wide galley style, the kitchen provides excellent fitted storage and workspace, a dual-fuel cooker and an American-style fridge/freezer. The kitchen also benefits from a door to the garden and a walk-in cupboard with fitted shelving.
The ground floor boasts four bright and spacious double bedrooms, a plumbed utility room, and a contemporary four-piece family bathroom. An attractive staircase ascends into the impressive master bedroom, which enjoys triple-aspect windows and flexible floor space for an assortment of furniture. In addition to a four-piece en-suite bathroom, the master bedroom incorporates two walk-in wardrobes/storage areas, both of which allow access to extensive (floored) eaves storage. Further benefits include gas central heating system and double-glazing.
The substantial garden grounds are walled and gated for privacy; the south-facing garden on Duddingston Road West looks onto the mature trees surrounding Duddingston Golf Course and features a raised lawn framed by flowerbeds. This leaves scope for a generous gated driveway with parking space for three cars. The large, covered storage area here is ideal for bikes, barbecues and garden furniture. Accessible from Meadowfield Gardens, the principal driveway accommodates four vehicles and culminates in a detached, brick-built double garage/workshop with internal and external lighting, power sockets and an outdoor tap.
Duddingston is easily reached by car from both the east and west and lies about three miles from the City Centre. The Bypass, with access to motorway networks beyond, is a short drive away and there is easy access south via the A1. Schooling is well represented from nursery to senior level with the property being within catchment of Parsons Green Primary and Portobello High; Edinburgh’s renowned private schools and universities are easily accessible.
