**Please note a closing date has been set for Thursday, 27th February 2020 at 11:00am** Nestled within a tranquil residential area in popular Mountcastle, close to historic Duddingston Village and Holyrood Park, this exceptionally bright and spacious three-bedroom mid-terrace villa offers great outdoor space and a private parking area. Although now in need of full modernisation throughout, the property would make the ideal home for the growing family, downsizers or buy to let investors.

Set back from the road, the property is accessed via a well-tended garden and a pathway leading to a handy porch and the front door. Entering the property, you are greeted by a spacious reception hall with an under-stair cupboard. On the right, the generous sitting room is flooded with an abundance of natural light and offers ample space for various seating arrangements around the gas fireplace. To the rear of this room, sliding doors takes you into the spacious dining area. Returning to the hall, the wide galley-style kitchen boasts ample storage and worktop space, while incorporating a range of freestanding appliances. The kitchen also offers access to the particularly generous south-facing garden. Upstairs the property accommodates three delightful bedrooms, two are generous doubles and there is a good-size versatile single. Completing the accommodation is the three-piece bathroom, which features a shower-over-bath with a glass screen, a pedestal basin and a WC. Gas central heating and double glazing is fitted throughout. Externally, as previously mentioned the property boasts a garden to the front which is laid to lawn and features a hedge (for privacy). Also laid to lawn is the vast south-facing garden to the rear. A private parking area is available to the side of the row of properties and is reached via a shared lane. Ample on-street parking is also available.

Mountcastle is a well-established residential area lying east of the city centre and close to several outdoor spaces including the award winning Figgate Park, Holyrood Park, the beach and promenade at Portobello, and charming Duddingston Village. A good range of local amenities are available within the area, along with Meadowbank Retail Park, Morrison’s Supermarket on Portobello Road and Asda Supermarket at the nearby Jewel. Schooling is available for all ages including The Royal High Primary School and St John’s rc Primary School, Portobello High School and Holyrood rc High. Home report: �240,000. EPC rating:E.
