Forming part of the well-established and popular residential Buckstone area of south Edinburgh, 6 Buckstone Close is a two-bedroom mid-terrace house with its own front and back gardens and off-street parking to the rear of the property.
It now requires updating and, therefore, offers an opportunity to the purchaser to interpret the house in the way they would choose, thus making it an ideal home.
The front door opens onto a small hall that offers access to both the living room and the stair leading to the first floor. The bright, east facing, living room has a large under the stair cupboard and a feature fire place. The kitchen adjoins the living room and benefits from a door leading out to the back garden. It is fitted with both floor and wall mounted storage units, work surfaces with tiled splashbacks and also houses the gas fired boiler.
There are two comfortable bedrooms, the larger having a built-in wardrobe. The naturally lit bathroom has a three-piece suite. There is a ceiling hatch that gives access to the attic space. The house has gas fired central heating and a combination of single and double glazing.
The front garden is primarily grassed, with a path leading to the front door. The back garden, with views to The Pentlands, is enclosed by a wooden panelled fence each side and a wrought iron fence and gate at the foot that leads to the off-road parking. Again, for the most part, it is grassed with the addition of various plants, shrubs, a Cordyline australis Palm, other small trees and useful garden shed. There is a metalled road at the southern end of the terrace that leads round to the off-street parking behind the terrace.
Buckstone Close is easily accessible to a variety of retail amenities including a Morrisons superstore at Hunter’s Tryst and a Tesco at Colinton Mains. Morningside offers an eclectic mix of shops, including both an M&S Food Hall and a Waitrose, cafes and restaurants, as well as banks, a library, not to mention its iconic cinema. With easy access to the City Bypass, larger retail shopping can be found at Straiton Retail Park, Hermiston Gait and the Gyle Shopping Centre.
The property is in the catchment for the highly respected Buckstone Primary School, St Peter’s RC Primary School, St Thomas of Aquin’s RC High and Boroughmuir High School. George Watson’s College, Merchiston School, and George Heriot’s, in the private sector, are all suitably located.
Recreation is well catered for by The Braid Hills, Hermitage of Braid, Blackford Hill, and the Pentlands Regional Park, home to the Midlothian Snowsport Centre with its dry ski slope. There are also excellent golf courses on the doorstep at Mortonhall, The Braids, and Swanston, and a children’s golf course at The Hermitage.
An efficient public transport network operates to most parts of the city and the city centre, the City Bypass, the Forth Road Bridge, Edinburgh International Airport, and the A702 running south from Edinburgh and offers easy connections by car to both the city centre and the City Bypass, the Forth Crossing, Edinburgh International Airport, and all major road networks.
