14 Ulster Crescent
Characterised by classic proportions, period features and wonderful natural light, this traditional 1930s semi-detached house has been cleverly extended to create an exceptionally spacious and flexible family home over two levels. In addition to a dualaspect dining kitchen, the property boasts two versatile reception rooms, four double bedrooms, and two luxurious four-piece family bathrooms. Externally the house benefits from an enclosed rear garden and a two-car driveway.
Nestled on a tranquil residential street in sought-after Willowbrae, the house immediately endears with its characteristic curved roofline and bow window. The original front door opens into a practical entrance vestibule, followed by a welcoming hall which has three good sized storage cupboards (with one housing the washing machine and tumble drier). On the right, the elegant living room is flooded with light from the south-facing bow window, which is fitted with attractive caféstyle louvre shutters. Here the collection of exquisite period features includes a traditional open fireplace, as well as decorative cornicing, picture rails and a ceiling rose. Continuing towards the rear, the dining room enjoys patio doors onto the rear deck (laid with lowmaintenance artificial turf) and would lend itself to various alternate uses, such as a family room or play room. The dining room flows directly into the heart of the home: the stylish dining kitchen.
Floored in rustic quarry tiles, the space is bathed in light from dual-aspect windows and triple skylights, and accommodates a luxurious fitted kitchen and a snug dining area with a traditional-style gas stove and patio doors. The oak and granite kitchen houses a range of integrated appliances, namely a four-burner gas hob, a cooker hood, a double oven, a microwave and a dishwasher, plus an impressive American-style fridge/ freezer. Returning to the hall, also on the ground floor are two well-proportioned double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes; a luxurious four-piece bathroom with a classic roll-top bath; and two walk-in cupboards, one of which is plumbed/wired for laundry appliances. Ascending to the light and airy first floor, here the large master bedroom benefits from south-facing windows to the front and a charming Juliet balcony to the rear, which yields magnificent views towards the Firth of Forth. The second double bedroom on this level incorporates built-in storage, while the second family bathroom is equipped with a contemporary four-piece suite. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
The semi-detached house enjoys a two-car paved driveway and a bike store to the front, plus a fully-enclosed and landscaped garden to the rear, comprising a manicured lawn, a raised deck laid with artificial grass, a suntrap patio, a shed and a selection of mature shrubs.
