Not sure what to make of this place. On the face of it, this is the 1930s Balnagarrow art deco property in Cramond Village, near Edinburgh, Midlothian, but time has taken its toll.
By that, we mean that the original 1930s architecture, which is still outstanding, seems to have encountered the 1960s at some point. Nothing terminal, but there do seem to be later additions here. The windows let the place down too, in our eyes.
But let’s not dwell on that. Let’s look at the positives, headed up by the quirky shape and boosted by some original features once you get inside. The decor might not be to your taste, but we think some period could be put back into this place if that’s the road you want to go down.
It also has location on its side – with a decent-sized plot and a spot in Cramond Village, looking out towards The Firth of Forth. A nice sight when you open the curtains in a morning.
As for the house, enter into ‘a welcoming and generous’ entrance hall, leading to the ground floor reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. The glazed sun lounge (which looks like a later addition, or at the very least, modified) is also here, as is the wood panelled family room with fireplace.
Head upstairs and you’ll find four generous bedrooms, a family bathroom and a study (or bathroom five). The master bedroom also has a ‘good sized’ en-suite bathroom. Outside, you’ll find 0.34 acres of mature grounds, along with a double garage and off-road parking for several cars.
If it appeals, it is offers over £735,000.
