Situated in a popular residential area on the west side of Clickimin Loch within easy walking distance of both Anderson High and Sound primary school, and also the Clickimin leisure centre and Tesco's, 4 Helendale Drive is a spacious four bedroom / two reception detached property set in an established garden along with a substantial 33' x 21' garage.

The entrance to the house is to the rear, a concrete path surrounding the house and leading to a uPVC double glazed door and sidelight which opens to a wood-lined vestibule with tiled floor, access hatch to the underfloor area, and doors to the utility room and hall, the large utility room providing space for coats etc. and also having plumbing for a washing machine (included in the sale although no warranties will be given), plus a handy built-in cupboard along one wall which provides storage space and also houses the District Heating unit.
The entrance area of the hall is a bright space thanks to borrowed light filtering through from glazed doors to the vestibule, kitchen & living room. This area has laminate flooring whilst a carpeted passage to the right leads to the shower room, the four bedrooms and two built-in cupboards, both shelved, the larger walk-in cupboard at the end of the hall measuring approximately 1.75m x 1.3m and having a fitted light.

A wide archway with sliding pocket doors leads through to the separate dining room, again a good size, which also can be accessed direct from the hall, this south-facing room having fitted cupboard units to one wall.
Moving on down the hall passageway you come to a wet wall-lined shower room re-fitted in 2017 and comprising a large walk-in shower fed by the District Heating system, plus a white WC and wash hand basin set in a run of fitted cupboard / vanity units which provide useful storage space for toiletries etc, and also conceal the cistern.
