Built in the mid twentieth century, this is a particularly appealing and unaltered four-bedroom bungalow. It is situated on Carlingnose Point at the junction with Ferryhill Road, in the highly desirable and picturesque village of North Queensferry, nestled on the rocky northern shoreline of the Firth of Forth where the Forth Bridge, the Forth Road Bridge, and the Queensferry Crossing all meet the Fife coast, some 10 miles from the centre of Edinburgh. With views from the garden to the cantilever railway bridge, the bungalow is set in a mature, well stocked and tended garden on three sides, while the fourth side offers a communal tarmacadamed access to both the bungalow and its garage. In the same ownership for many years, there is now the opportunity to acquire this very desirable property and create an exceptional contemporary home.

The front door opens onto a vestibule that leads into the hall. The hall gives access to all rooms, while also having a cloak room with basin and w.c, three storage cupboards and a loft hatch for entry to the under-roof storage. The living room has a full height window wall, facing south / south east, one section of which opens onto the garden. There is a traditional kitchen with both wall and base storage units, work surfaces a tiled splash back on one wall, and a mixture of integrated and slot in appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility room that has a sink, a plumbed in washing machine; it also houses the gas fired boiler and has a back door, leading to the garden.

There are three double bedrooms and a further smaller one that could be alternatively used as a study, or office. The bathroom is naturally lit and currently accommodates a three-piece suite. The bungalow is double glazed and has gas fired central heating.

Forming part of the south / south west façade is a small sun room that is only accessible from the garden. There is a covered bin store and single garage, with up and over door attached to the north / north east façade.
