Duddingston Village is a delightful and historic conservation area located just to the east of Edinburgh's city centre. It has been a settlement since the 12th Century and is home to landmarks including Duddingston Kirk and Duddingston Loch. Duddingston is famed for the renowned Sheep Heid Inn, which is reported to be one of the oldest inns in Scotland. The Village also has a delightful shared community garden which can be enjoyed by residents. The open green spaces of Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park are close by, as are Duddingston and Prestonfield Golf Courses. The city centre is easily accessible either by bus, car, or by bicycle through Holyrood Park. Cameron Toll Shopping Centre is a short drive away, while there is a good selection of local shops and amenities at Newington and Portobello. The city bypass, A1 and the south are also within easy reach.
25 The Causeway is a substantial purpose built detached family house in the heart of this sought after conservation village. The house was built in 2008 and offers flexible accommodation over two floors to make an ideal home for entertaining and everyday family life. The house is set back from the road and has secure entry which leads to an enclosed courtyard at the front, which could be used for off-street parking for at least two cars. Downstairs, a vestibule leads into a welcoming entrance hall. The main reception room is complemented by a second reception room which could be used as a study, family room or additional bedroom. There is a very generously proportioned kitchen/dining room at the rear of the house, which leads into the conservatory which in turn gives access into the garden. There is also a useful utility room and laundry at the rear of the house.
A cupola over the stairs floods the centre of the house with natural light. Upstairs there are four well proportioned double bedrooms. The master bedroom shares a jack & jill ensuite with the adjacent bedroom - this bedroom has a large dressing room which could be reinstated as an additional bathroom if desired. The two bedrooms to the front of the house are served by a well appointed family bathroom. Solar panels have also been installed by the present owners and there is double glazing throughout. Externally to the rear is a generously sized south facing garden.
