157 Grange Loan
This four-storey, sophisticated townhouse by renowned Malcolm Fraser Architects lies along the wide, tree-lined Grange Loan in Edinburgh’s most exclusive suburb. Located at the end of a small, select development, the house occupies a tremendous footprint of over 3300 square feet and is accompanied by excellent private parking and an impeccably-maintained suntrap garden.
Lit by large picture windows, offering uninterrupted vistas of the property’s tranquil leafy surroundings, the internal accommodation boasts an exceptionally high-quality finish with Farrow & Ball painted walls, Palermo oak internal doors, and state-of-the-art fittings by top design brands such as Kitchens International, lighting design by Karen Brown Design and built by the multi-award-winning S1 Developments. Marking an impressive entrance to the house is a spacious vestibule featuring a handy cloakroom cupboard and leading into a hall with floorspace for furniture pieces and a gallery overlooking the kitchen below; both areas are laid with luxurious polished white marble tiling with gas underfloor heating – a feature throughout the lower levels of the house. In addition to practical access from the garage, the hall accommodates a versatile study area enjoying a bright dual-aspect, with tranquil garden views, and built-in storage.
On the lower ground-floor, a further hall houses a convenient WC and affords access to the very heart of this executive home; a vast south-facing kitchen set beside a generous area for relaxing and dining, an ideal layout for entertaining family and friends. superbly social space exudes a wonderfully light and airy ambience heightened by its sunny aspect and double-height vaulted ceiling, whilst, effortlessly extending the room outdoors are a set of spectacular bi-folding doors, and an additional external entrance, opening directly onto the garden. Impeccably presented with an ultra-sleek finish, the kitchen is fitted with flat-panel cabinets paired with resilient granite worktops and a congenial breakfast bar peninsula. Fully-integrated to further enhance its flawless appearance, the space is equipped with a range of Siemens appliances, including an eyelevel double oven, grill & microwave, a five-ring gas burner (with a feature chimney-style hood), a dishwasher and a large wine cooler. An adjoining utility room includes a Fisher & Paykel American-style fridge freezer, as well as excellent pantry storage and spaces for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Returning upstairs, to the first-floor, a landing (with storage) leads to the living room and two of the five double bedrooms on offer. Featuring sliding doors opening onto a balcony, with an idyllic outlook across lush neighbouring woodland, the south-facing, well-proportioned living room provides a wealth of flexible space for comfortable seating. Opulent embellishments to the room include a chic, contemporary log-effect fire, flanked by floating shelving, and a sophisticated and discreet corner bar and serving area. The latter features display shelving with integrated lighting, cupboard storage and a sink. The bedrooms on this level incorporate fitted wardrobes and are served by a shower room with a deluxe double shower enclosure. On the second floor, fanning off a central landing is a sumptuous south-facing master suite, the two remaining double bedrooms (one with built-in storage and a feature corner window) and a four-piece family bathroom with a bathtub and a shower enclosure. Supplementing the master bedroom are extensive fitted wardrobes and a stunning ensuite bathroom offset by a rich blue accent wall and replete with a wall-mounted WC and dual sinks, a walk-in shower enclosure with an appealing rainfall shower head and a freestanding whirlpool bathtub fronted by integrated floor lighting.
