Situated next to the hospital and just around the corner from Bells Brae primary school, and a short walk from the Clickimin and Anderson High School, 38 Russell Crescent is well-presented three bedroom semi-detached family home with an attractively laid out back garden and single garage.

Decorated in a light and airy, very contemporary style throughout, the property comprises a good-sized living room, attractively fitted kitchen / diner with patio doors to the garden and handy larder space off, and a bathroom on the ground floor, plus three double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. A substantial floored and lined loft provides extensive storage / hobby space.

New uPVC double glazed windows were installed about five years ago along with a new kitchen, bathroom & shower room. Heating is provided by underfloor heating downstairs supplied by an electric boiler, and electric panel heaters upstairs.

Great family home in this convenient location; early viewing recommended.


Entry is to the side of the house, the uPVC double glazed door opening to a large hall laid with wood laminate flooring, with doors to the living room, kitchen and bathroom, plus two built-in cupboards, one for coats etc., the other for storage space under the stairs. Two windows to the side provide natural light.

The laminate flooring in the hall extends into the good-sized living room, a bright space thanks to its large window which overlooks the front garden and enjoys an open view down Leslie Road. A built-in cupboard in the corner houses the hot water tank.

The attractively fitted kitchen again has plenty of natural light thanks to sliding patio doors to a deck to the south side of the house. Fitted units in a pale blue and cream colour with woodblock effect worktops and pale blue laminate splash backs create a very contemporary feel, the units including an integral oven & hob with stainless steel cooker hood over plus a concealed integrated dishwasher, inset 1½ bowl sink, corner carousel and handy pull-out drawer units at either end. There is space for a table & chairs by the patio doors, a light coloured tiled floor, recessed ceiling spotlighting, and a handy additional walk-in larder with further fitted shelving and worktop providing yet more storage space and having plumbing for a washing machine below (appliance not included). Quarry tiled floor.

Refurbished at the same time as the kitchen, the completely re-fitted wet-wall lined bathroom comprises a modern white three piece suite including a shower / bath with electric shower and centrally mounted ‘waterfall’ mixer tap, plus a WC and wash hand basin set in fitted units which provide useful storage space for toiletries etc. and also conceal the cistern. A further matching fitted cupboard behind the door provides additional storage and the floor is tiled.

The carpeted stair from the hall which is lit by a side window, leads up to the first floor landing and doors to three double bedrooms, all carpeted and heated by an electric panel heater, and a shower room similarly finished to the downstairs bathroom with wet-wall lined shower enclosure with electric shower, a wash hand basin with cupboard space below and bathroom cabinet / light fitting over, plus additional shelf space around the toilet. Heating is provided by a heated towel rail / radiator and mosaic tile vinyl is laid to the floor.

Bedrooms 1 & 2 enjoy a southerly aspect, bedroom 2 enjoying a view over the rooftops over to the sea in the distance and also having a built-in wardrobe with shelf & hanging space. Bedroom 3, the main bedroom, faces north and like the living room below enjoys an open view along Leslie Road. Again this room has a built-in wardrobe with shelf & hanging rail.

A hatch on the landing with pull-down ladder provides easy access to the substantial floored and lined loft space which provides lots of storage or hobby space with a floor area of approximately 5.1m x 3.6m (16’9”x 11’10”) and a floor-to-ceiling height of 2.2m (7’3”). A large Velux window with integral blackout blind provides plenty of natural light and ample power points and lighting are provided.
