Nestled in a cul-de-sac in popular Shandon, within a historic conservation area, this Victorian upper villa enjoys delightful period features, a sunny southerly aspect, generous proportions, two bedrooms, and two reception rooms, plus a private garden and unrestricted on-street parking. Although now in need of modernisation and upgrading, the villa represents an exciting opportunity for its new owners to create a home ideally suited to their own tastes and requirements.
Approached via a pathway flanked by plant beds, the front door opens into a ground-floor vestibule and an airy entrance hall (with excellent storage) leading up into a first-floor hallway. From here, you step into a wonderfully bright and spacious living room. Extended by a southerly-facing bay window, this reception room incorporates the desirable period features of intricate cornicing, a ceiling rose, and an Edinburgh Press with hidden storage and display shelving. At the focal point of the space is an elegant marble fireplace with a cosy gas fire inset. Next door and enjoying a peaceful rear-facing position overlooking the garden is a formal dining room. Offering the perfect setting for casual meals and entertaining, the dining room features a tiled fireplace with a gas fire and further benefits from built-in storage and convenient access to the kitchen. Currently fitted with wall and base cabinets and providing space for freestanding appliances, the kitchen also enjoys a quiet position with a tranquil garden outlook.
The villa accommodates two bedrooms; one good-sized double and a spacious single, with the single bedroom taking full advantage of the property’s favourable sunny aspect. Finally, a bathroom comes replete with a bathtub with a shower tap attachment, a pedestal basin, and a WC. The property is heated by an efficient gas central heating system.
Externally, the villa enjoys its own private rear garden, whilst on-street parking on Hollybank Terrace is conveniently unrestricted.
Extras: The property is sold as seen.
