Enjoying an open westerly aspect, 58 North Lochside is conveniently situated just across the road from the Clickimin leisure centre and Anderson High School and also within walking distance of both supermarkets, the Toll Clock and hospital. There is also a children’s play park immediately behind the house.

The accommodation in this end-terraced property which has oil-fired central heating, comprises a dual aspect living/dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, plus two bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. There is also a substantial floored and lined loft space. A driveway provides off-street parking for three cars and there are garden areas to the front and rear, the rear garden being a good-size.

The roof was re-slated about eight years ago but otherwise the property requires updating which is reflected in the price.

 

The front door to the property opens to a small hallway with doors to the living room and two handy built-in cupboards, the larger one providing space for coats and general storage and also extending under the stairs to house the oil-fired central heating boiler.

The living/dining room enjoys a dual aspect with windows to the front and rear of the house, varnished floorboards being a feature. There is a tiled fireplace surround housing a solid-fuel stove although this has not been used since the oil-fired boiler was installed. It may be possible to open up the fireplace again however some work would be required and no guarantees can be given.

Off the living room is the kitchen with north-facing window, door to the back garden and fitted units including a sink, space for a gas cooker and plumbing for a washing machine. A further recess provides space for a fridge/freezer etc with small built-in cupboard to one side. Appliances not included.

Back in the hallway, the stair which is lit by windows at the top and bottom, leads up to the first floor landing and doors to the two double bedrooms and shower room, a hatch providing access to the substantial, floored and lined loft which spans the full width of the house and is lit by two Velux windows. It provides a huge amount of storage space, sliding panels to either side providing access to additional storage in the eaves. The floor-to-ceiling height in the middle is over 6ft making it ideal for a general hobby space perhaps.

The main bedroom is situated to the front of the house, its window enjoying a sunny westerly aspect and views over the Clickimin to the hill beyond. A large built-in wardrobe along one wall concealed by sliding mirror doors provides plenty of hanging and shelf space, further storage being provided to the opposite wall by a built-in cupboard over the stairs with open shelf to one side for a TV etc.

The second room, also a double, is situated to the rear and looks out over the back garden to the play park. A built-in shelved airing cupboard houses the hot water tank.

Finally the wet wall lined shower room comprises a shower enclosure with electric shower, WC and wash hand basin.

 

The property benefits from garden areas to the front and rear, the front garden comprising a lawn, raised flower bed by the house and a driveway from the street which leads to the back garden and provides off-street parking space for three cars. To the rear is a large concreted patio area and cold water tap outside the back door (note the neighbours have a right of access across), a garden shed (although this is in poor condition) with further paved area to the side, plus a rear lawn leading up to a greenhouse at the far end of the garden although this requires some replacement glass panels.
