Nestled at the corner of Albert Drive and Broomieknowe Road, this charming semi-detached residence stands proudly on a substantial and meticulously maintained garden plot, exuding an unmistakable aura of prestige that is sure to captivate anyone who steps inside. This remarkable home has been lovingly cherished by the same owners since 1993, only the third guardians of this vintage gem, which was constructed around 1926. Throughout the years, the house has been meticulously cared for and thoughtfully improved, resulting in a property that effortlessly marries classic elegance with modern convenience.
The property is brimming with original character, featuring cornicing, detailed ceiling plaster work, box-panelled doors, and finely crafted woodwork. Adding to its charm, the property proudly showcases some original stained leaded glass windows, now enclosed within modern PVC frames. Notable highlights include a thoughtfully designed kitchen furnished with high-end appliances, while the family bathroom serves as a stunning centrepiece with its freestanding bath exuding an air of luxury. For security and comfort, a burglar alarm provides peace of mind, while the gas-fired central heating system envelops the interior in warmth.
This inviting home boasts a spacious and versatile layout with six rooms designed to adapt to the ever-evolving needs of a contemporary family, and it offers a substantial footprint spanning 185 square meters. As you step inside, a spacious entrance porch leads you to a magnificent reception hall, and a practical walk-in cloaks cupboard with a guest WC. The front lounge is bathed in natural light through a generous bay window, complemented by an original fireplace that adds a vintage touch. The sitting/family room at the rear is a cosy retreat with three large windows overlooking the garden.
The kitchen serves as the heart of the home, featuring an extensive range of fitted base and wall-mounted units with real wood work surfaces. It also boasts integral appliances, such as a full-sized fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and a freestanding range cooker. The kitchen's generous size allows for a spacious dining area and provides easy access to the garden.
Moving to the upper level, a substantial hall with fitted storage and access to a fully floored and lined attic room awaits. Four double-sized bedrooms beckon, with the principal bedroom featuring a broad bay window to the front. The accommodation is rounded out by a generously proportioned three-piece family bathroom, complete with a separate shower enclosure for added convenience.
The outdoor spaces have been thoughtfully landscaped for easy maintenance, featuring lush lawns and planted areas with an array of trees, shrubs, and plants. A spacious patio on the side serves as the perfect spot for entertaining. At the far end of the rear garden, there's a hardstanding area for a potential garage and a driveway accessible from Broomieknowe Road. Additional off-street driveway parking is available at the front of the property. To top it off, the house offers ample basement storage, adding to its already impressive appeal.
