17 Brunstane Drive
Situated in the desirable suburb of Brunstane, this tremendously spacious five-bedroom detached house enjoys excellent transport links into Edinburgh city centre, including swift local rail services, and lies just a short walk from Portobello’s beautiful sandy seafront. Promising a wonderfully sociable family home, the house has been extended to offer two storeys of well-presented accommodation including a selection of multifunctional reception areas.
Set behind an attractive garden planted with established shrubs, the house opens into an entrance vestibule flowing through to a hall laid with hardy timber-effect flooring. Situated on either side of the hall are two equally generous reception areas bathed in natural light via westerly-facing bay windows. Elegantly accentuated by characterful features, the living room boasts handsome natural wood details paired with a decorative ceiling rose and coving, whilst the sitting room enjoys flawless neutral décor and the comfort of plush carpeting. Leading off the living room is a formal dining room, whilst the sitting room offers access to a sunny home study, also ideal for use as a children’s play room.
Conveniently accessed from the dining room, via a graceful Tudor-style archway, is an expansive kitchen perfectly designed for socialising as a family, with a congenial breakfast bar and space for comfortable furniture. Sliding glazed doors flood the space with natural light and provide a seamless transition outside to the rear garden. Enjoying a homely, country-style design, the kitchen features a wide array of fitted cabinetry and ample workspace; finished in warm-green hues supplemented by rich timber accents and appealing mosaic splashback tiling. In addition to an integrated eye-level double oven and a gas hob, accompanied by a statement chimney-style cooker hood, the room offers ample space for freestanding goods. Also located on the ground-floor are three of the five bedrooms on offer, all of which benefit from a tranquil garden-facing position. Ideal for use as a guest suite, one room incorporates a chic en-suite shower room, whilst the remaining two rooms are serviced by a superbly-stylish family bathroom and a shower room, both conveniently located on the ground-floor.
Set within a large inner hallway (with built-in storage), a stairway, ornamented with an elegant hardwood banister, leads to the first-floor accommodation. Here, a landing flows through to a pristine, generously-proportioned master bedroom yielding leafy garden views and enjoying the luxury of a walk-in wardrobe. This upper level of accommodation also includes a single bedroom, lit by a large skylight, a vast, multipurpose laundry room and a deluxe shower room. Boasting impressive proportions and an opulent finish the shower room includes a WC, dual basins, a corner shower enclosure and a wealth of vanity storage.
Externally, in addition to the front garden, the house enjoys a large rear garden; fully-enclosed and therefore reassuringly secure for children and pets. This delightful outdoor space features a neatly-kept lawn and an expansive paved terrace for alfresco dining. To the front of the property, a driveway provides handy private parking. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
