Nestled on a tranquil, residential street characterised by Victorian villas and striking views of rugged Arthur’s Seat, this four-bedroom double-upper villa offers a beautiful family home, brimming with inimitable charm and character.
Arranged over two floors, the vast property has retained a wealth of carefully preserved period features, with spectacular sash-and-case windows and splendid original fireplaces to be found in almost every room. The handsome front door swings open to reveal a light-filled entrance vestibule with a staircase leading up to the spacious first floor hall, where soaring ceilings, panelled doors and an attractive oak staircase provide an exciting preview of the accommodation to follow.
The first floor boasts three breathtaking reception rooms, the first of which is the vast drawing room. Bathed in light from a splendid bay window that yields fabulous views of Arthur’s Seat, the classically elegant space features rustic timber floorboards, intricate cornicing and a sumptuous marble fireplace, complete with a tiled surround and hearth. A door to the right of the fireplace leads into an original Victorian conservatory with a beautiful stained glass window, which offers practical storage space. The second reception room, the inviting family room, also benefits from wonderful proportions and natural light, yet conveys a more relaxed, intimate feel. The room boasts another exquisite fireplace flanked by an authentic Edinburgh Press, with quaint service bells preserved on either side.
Across the hall you reach the heart of the home: the tremendous dining kitchen.A quintessential family hub, the room offers a warm, welcoming space for everyday family life, weeknight suppers and informal entertaining. In addition to extensive fitted storage and a range of integrated/freestanding appliances, the kitchen incorporates a walk-in pantry and two press cupboards. While the dining kitchen easily accommodates an eight-seat table, the additional dining room adjacent provides a more formal setting for dinner parties or large celebrations. Completing the first floor is a generous hall cupboard and one of two family bathrooms; this one traditional with Victorian-style fittings.
The grand staircase ascends to the second floor landing, which is flooded with natural light from a magnificent cupola. Enjoying a sunny southwesterly aspect overlooking the rear garden is the appealing master bedroom, which features an immaculate en-suite shower room, comprising a double shower within a stylish glazed enclosure, and a wall-hung basin and WC suite. Also on this level are three bright and spacious double bedrooms (two with scenic views of Arthur’s Seat) and a contemporary three-piece bathroom. Gas central heating, partial double glazing and partial secondary glazing ensure optimum home comfort and efficiency all year round. Externally the property enjoys a private, southwest-facing rear garden, which comprises a lawn framed by a selection of mature shrubs and trees, as well as a roomy garden shed. The property also benefits from zoned residents’ priority parking (B7) directly adjacent.
