Forming part of a traditional building in Peebles, this main-door upper villa accommodates a double bedroom, a spacious reception room, a kitchen, and a bathroom, and comes with its own private garden and access to unrestricted on-street parking. The villa would be perfect for first-time buyers, couples, professionals, and rental investors alike, and offers a blank canvas for its new owner to personalise.
The villa’s private ground-floor entrance opens to a staircase which takes you to a hall (with built-in storage) on the first floor. Leading off the hall and situated to the front of the property is a spacious reception room, offering fantastic flexibility for arrangements of lounge and dining furniture, all arranged around a feature fireplace flanked by an Edinburgh press style cupboard with display shelving and hidden storage. The kitchen is conveniently connected to the living and dining room and is fitted with attractive, neutrally toned cabinetry, workspace, and splashback tiling, with freestanding appliances comprising a cooker, a fridge, a microwave, and a washing machine included in the sale.
Returning back through the reception room and hall, you reach the villa’s double bedroom. The sleeping area occupies a spacious footprint which allows for various layouts of freestanding bedroom furniture, is accompanied by a large built-in cupboard, and retains its characterful cornicing detail. Finally, a bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a folding glazed screen, a pedestal basin, and a WC. The home is kept warm by a gas central heating system and all windows (except the hall cupboard window) are double-glazed.
Externally, the villa boasts its own private garden including a lawn with a border of leafy, mature shrubbery, and a patio for outdoor seating. Ample unrestricted on-street parking can be found on Murray Place.
