46 Duddingston Row
Occupying a substantial plot on Duddingston Row that backs onto the vast greens of Duddingston Golf Club, this classic 1930s two-bedroom detached bungalow represents an exciting opportunity to create a wonderful family home in desirable Duddingston. Now in need of modernisation and upgrading throughout, the property may allow scope for extension, reconfiguration and a loft conversion subject to obtaining planning consent. In addition to large private gardens to the front and rear, the plot further accommodates a gated single driveway and a single garage/workshop.
The double-fronted bungalow instantly endears with its characteristic curved roof, twin bay windows and natural sandstone façade. Welcoming you inside is a charming canopy porch and a useful entrance vestibule, which leads into the good-sized hall. On the right, the large living room is bathed in light from a wide bay window and at the focal point of the space is a traditional gas fire flanked by a press cupboard. Positioned at the rear of the property is the bright and spacious dining room, which features another wall-mounted gas fire and built-in storage. Sliding patio doors set into the bay window lead into the southwest-facing conservatory, which in turn opens onto the rear garden.
Enjoying access from the dining room the well-appointed kitchen is equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus integrated appliances including: a four-burner gas hob, an extractor hood, an electric double oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, a freestanding washing machine and a fridge. There is also a handy back door to the garden.
Returning to the hall, the bungalow boasts two delightful double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes; the front bedroom enjoys outstanding proportions and a wide bay window, while the rear benefits from a sunny southwesterly aspect. The airy three-piece shower room has been modernised as an accessible wet room, comprising: a glazed shower enclosure, a wall-mounted basin, a mirrored vanity cabinet, a toilet and a chrome towel radiator.
In addition to a generous hall cupboard, the bungalow benefits from a floored storage loft, which may allow conversion into additional living space (subject to building and planning consents). Gas central heating and double-glazing throughout ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
The vast southwest-facing rear garden is fully enclosed for maximum security and seclusion, and has been beautifully landscaped to include manicured lawns, patios and a charming ivy-clad pergola. There is also a greenhouse and a garden shed. To the front is a well-tended lawned garden with a pedestrian gate, plus a gated single driveway and a single garage/workshop with lighting and power.
