45 Craigleith Hill Gardens, Edinburgh, EH4 2JB
1930s semi detached bungalow in sought after area of Craigleith close to Stockbridge with its cafes, restaurants and boutiques and also to the main road arteries out of Edinburgh, in a quiet street with off street private parking and a south facing garden. With two bedrooms, extended kitchen/diner, dining room, sitting room and conservatory, the property is flexible and could be reconfigured with ease. There is also a floored attic with a staircase leading up to it with two Velux windows and the potential for excellent and versatile upstairs accommodation. This is a rare find offering flexible accommodation which could be updated, in an area so central and yet very tranquil.
Significant improvements have been done to the property in the last few years including the replacement of all external doors and windows. The property would benefit from a degree of modernisation.
