Incorporating two/three bedrooms and two reception areas, plus delightful gardens with lovely elevated views and access to unrestricted on-street parking, this traditional semi-detached bungalow is nestled on an established residential street in picturesque Peebles; within strolling distance of local shops, schools, transport links, leafy parks, and the River Tweed.
Accessed via a set of stairs and a pathway through the front garden, the bungalow opens into a vestibule flowing through to a spacious hall. Here, crisp-white décor and stripped pine flooring give the first glimpse of the tasteful, minimalist décor to follow. On the left, you step into a generously-proportioned and plushly carpeted living room. A high ceiling and a large, south-facing bay window create a wonderfully light and airy ambience, and delightful original features enhance the space, incorporating intricate cornicing, a picture rail, wood panel window surrounds, an Edinburgh Press, and an imposing fireplace. This room could also be used as a third double bedroom if desired. Continuing along the hall, you reach a family/sitting room leading to a kitchen. The family room is fitted with the same pine flooring as the hall and also enjoys crisp-white décor, elegantly supplemented by a charming accent wall. A homely multi-fuel stove creates a cosy atmosphere, whilst an open Edinburgh Press offers display shelving. The kitchen is tastefully fitted with a range of cabinetry accompanied by natural wood worktops, a freestanding Smeg cooker, with an integrated feature hood, as well as an under counter fridge, space for further appliances and a handy traditional clothes pulley. Ample space is provided for a seated dining area, whilst French doors open onto the rear garden. A bright adjoining porch houses a freestanding fridge freezer and offers external access.
The bungalow accommodates two double bedrooms; both neutrally decorated, comfortably carpeted and retaining original pared-back cornicing. The larger bedroom is enviably south-facing and incorporates a fireplace and an Edinburgh Press, whilst the remaining bedroom is peacefully rear-facing. The property also features a large floored and carpeted attic with skylight windows, which is accessed from the family/sitting room. Finally, a bright bathroom, with stylish décor and white wall tiles, comes replete with a shower-over-bath, a pedestal basin, and a WC. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Outside, in addition to a leafy garden area to the front, the bungalow enjoys a delightful, lawned garden to the rear; boasting tranquil countryside views. A shed and a bike store provide handy external storage. Unrestricted on-street parking is available on Kirkland Street.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings except the living room, cooker, fridge, and fridge freezer to be included in the sale.

Peebles, Scottish Borders
Nestled in the Tweed Valley, within the Scottish Borders, the charming Royal Burgh of Peebles is a historic and picturesque town. The town has been recognised as the ‘Top Independent Retailing Town in Scotland’ with a wealth of independent shops, but also benefits from a handful of high-street supermarkets, including a Tesco superstore, banks and a post office. The town features numerous top-quality restaurants, bars and cafés and is considered a cultural hub, with the distinguished Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre hosting a wide range of arts events throughout the year. There are also a number of annual festivals held in the town, including the Beltane Festival, the Peebles Jazz Festival and the renowned Arts Festival. Situated on the banks of the River Tweed, famous for salmon fishing, and set within an area of outstanding beauty, Peebles offers a perfect base from which to enjoy all the countryside has to offer; from scenic riverside and parkland walks to horse riding and cycling.
