In this week's property price twins we take a look at two very different properties that are on the market for £225,000. Which one would you prefer to own?
1. Four bedroom terraced house in Newcraighall Road, Edinburgh.
It’s hard to imagine that this quaint terraced cottage contains four bedrooms from looking at its exterior, but inside that is exactly what you'll find. The first two bedrooms are on the ground floor along with the kitchen, lounge and a toilet. Upstairs are the two remaining bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
This well laid out property is ready to move into and decorated to a high standard, so it would be ideal for a busy family that doesn’t have time for a DIY project. There is full double glazing throughout and the bonus of gas central heating and a combi boiler.
Outside there is a well looked after garden with both a patio and lawn to the rear, while out the front there is off-street parking. The house is conveniently located around half a mile from Newcraighall Station, where trains can take you to Edinburgh station in 10 minutes.
Available via Sturrock Armstrong and Thomson.
2. Three bedroom detached house in Sandford, Devon.
For the same price you could own this three bedroom thatched cottage in the village of Sandford, which is just outside of Crediton. This property is full of character, with features such as an inglenook fire place, exposed beams and impressive stonework.
The master bedroom comes with built-in wardrobes and a window seat with views of the countryside, while the second bedroom has a Victorian fireplace and views across the village. The third bedroom can be found on the ground floor and is currently being used as a study. To the back of the property there is an easy to maintain courtyard garden with a shed and a log store.
This house would be perfect for an older couple looking to escape to the country and experience a more rural lifestyle. Sandford may be a small village but it still offers a post office, pub, a primary school and a variety of sports clubs. If you need a wider range of amenities, then you can drive into Exeter in under half an hour.
Available via Helmores.
