34 Marchbank Way
Nestled in the sought-after village of Balerno, this traditional three-bedroom mid-terraced house offers a bright and airy home to suit first-time buyers, young families and city professionals keen to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital. The property is characterised by a desirable semiopen- plan layout and excellent storage space, however also has fantastic potential for reconfiguration and modernisation as desired.
Externally the house enjoys a southwestfacing patio to the front, as well as an enclosed garden, a private driveway and ample on-street parking to the rear.
Approached via the suntrap patio, the front door opens into a generous entrance hall with ample space for storage furniture. To the right you step into the open-plan lounge and dining area, which is flooded with light from dual-aspect windows to the front and rear. A practical dining hatch between the kitchen and dining area creates cohesion between the two spaces, and allows scope to reconfigure the layout to create a completely open-plan space, or a large dining kitchen with a separate living room (subject to requisite consents). The wide galley kitchen provides direct access to the rear garden, and is equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace. Integrated appliances include a five-bur ner gas hob, an extractor hood and an electric single oven; this leaves room for a freestanding washing machine, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. Upstairs the house boasts two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both of which benefit from fitted wardrobes. The generous single bedroom features a built-in loft bed with extensive storage underneath, as well as a full-height built-in wardrobe. Completing the accommodation is the bright and airy threepiece family bathroom, which is equipped with a Mira power shower. The house further benefits from practical hidden storage in the form of a large understair cupboard with shelves and hanging rails, and a partially floored attic with a Ramsay ladder. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
The house enjoys a southwest-facing garden to the front, which is paved and planted with mature shrubs, and an enclosed low maintenance garden to the rear. A secure gate allows access to the private single driveway to the rear, which is supplemented with ample unrestricted parking.
