8 Craiglockhart Drive North, Edinburgh EH14 1HS







This charming bungalow enjoys an elevated position with views towards Fife to the front and Craiglockhart Hill to the rear. A particular feature are the beautiful gardens which are generous in size and well-tended, the rear being Southeast facing and therefore enjoying the sun throughout the day and with mature shrubs and trees including apple trees. There is a driveway and a garage with a store.

Internally, a blank canvas, the property offers a wonderful opportunity for renovation and extension. There has been some work done internally, but it still needs to be completed, including installing a kitchen. The generous garden grounds and attic space offer scope to build out and up.

The property is situated in a quiet residential street in a sought-after area well served by excellent local amenities and schooling and ideally situated for easy access to both the city centre and the Edinburgh City Bypass.
