32 Bonaly Crescent
Enveloped by idyllic wraparound gardens and enjoying scenic views towards the nearby Pentland Hills, this five-bedroom detached house offers a unique suburban setting in leafy Bonaly, positioned enviably close to the picturesque Water of Leith.
Behind its attractive gable-fronted façade, this generous family home, with multiple living areas, presents exciting potential for enhancement and modernisation. Many rooms benefit from a dual-aspect outlook, creating a lovely light and airy feel throughout.
Pleasantly tucked away from the road and occupying a sizable corner plot, the house opens into a well-lit, welcoming hall housing storage and a convenient WC. On either side of the hall are the property’s bright, southerlyfacing reception areas; a versatile family room, with direct garden access, and a living room flowing through to a formal dining area. The bay-fronted living room is arranged around an inviting coal-effect fire flanked by an elegantly arched recess with fitted shelving. An open archway allows seamless access into the adjoining dining area, with French doors opening onto the garden – a wonderfully sociable layout for relaxing and entertaining throughout the year.
Next door, a kitchen includes floorspace for further seated dining, perfect for breakfasts and casual family meals. Though in need of improvements, the room provides a decent sized area to design a contemporary kitchen suited to one’s own tastes and requirements.
Currently, the kitchen has been fitted with cabinetry and shelving, with space for a freestanding cooker and white goods. From the kitchen, you step into a rear porch (with practical garden access) representing a useful storage area or possible conversion into a utility area. Upstairs, fanning off a central landing are five double bedrooms all benefiting from delightful leafy views. The rear-facing bedrooms feature hand basins and fitted cupboard storage, whilst the two largest bedrooms, positioned to the front of the house, enjoy a sunny southerly-facing aspect.
Finally, completing the accommodation on offer is a bright, three-piece bathroom and a handily separate WC. The property is heated via a gas central heating system and includes a large boarded loft space, with development potential with the correct permissions. Externally, the house is hugged by beautiful substantial lawned gardens to all sides; favourably sheltered by neat hedgerows, mature trees and plants for extra privacy. A shed provides external storage, whilst a private driveway leads to a detached single garage.
