20 Kingsknowe Road South, Edinburgh
Occupying a prime corner plot directly opposite Kingsknowe Golf Club, this three-bedroom detached bungalow offers an exceptionally spacious and flexible family home over two levels. The property is presented to an impeccable standard throughout, achieving the perfect blend of traditional charm and contemporary style. Enjoying an elevated position behind a landscaped front garden, the property, with its stone façade and vast bay window, makes a wonderful first impression. The front door opens into a practical entrance vestibule, with a glazed door leading into the impressive central hall. Here rich maple flooring paired with elegant, neutral
décor immediately exudes a warm, homely ambience – setting the tone for the accommodation to follow. On the right, the southwest-facing living room is flooded with light from a magnificent bay window, and at the heart of the room is an exquisite Art Nouveau fireplace, equipped with a living-flame gas fire. Also at the front of the property, the dual-aspect dining room/bedroom four provides the perfect setting for formal dining, or would make an ideal fourth double bedroom. At the rear of the property, the delightful family room enjoys a charming bay window with patio doors onto the garden, and offers scope for various configurations. The immaculate
galley-kitchen adjacent, which benefits from a side door to the garden, is lined with classic white, Shaker-style cabinets, complemented by a rustic slate-effect floor and coordinating worktop. In addition to extensive storage and worktop space, the kitchen boasts integrated appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge/freezer, as well as a gleaming Rangemaster dual-fuel range cooker and cooker hood. The ground floor also accommodates a spacious, dual-aspect double bedroom with substantial built-in wardrobes, and a bright and airy three-piece shower room.
Accessed via a large cloakroom with convenient storage, the first floor features two well proportioned double bedrooms, and a stunning three-piece bathroom, comprising a lavish roll-top bath with a shower head attachment, a pedestal basin, a towel radiator and a WC. Furthermore, the first floor boasts a handy airing cupboard and tremendous eaves storage, which is accessed via the bedrooms and the bathroom. Externally the property is enveloped by enchanting private gardens, which are afforded outstanding privacy and seclusion by tall fencing. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped to include a patio with lush fruit trees, a south-facing decked seating area and a manicured lawn framed by mature shrubs. The property benefits from a single garage with light/power and fitted units (offering a fantastic workshop), as well as a large driveway that comfortably accommodates three vehicles. Gas central heating, double glazing, underfloor insulation and cavity wall insulation ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
Situated on the southwestern fringe of the capital, just four miles from the city centre, the sought-after suburb of Kingsknowe enjoys a tranquil, leafy setting hugged by the Water of Leith. The area is served by excellent local services and amenities, including Sainsbury’s and an Asda superstore just a short drive away, while neighbouring Colinton, with its quaint selection of independent shops and businesses, offers a traditional shopping experience. Residents of Kingsknowe have a wealth of outdoor activities right on their doorstep, from a relaxed stroll along the Water of Leith Walkway or a round of golf at Kingsknowe Golf Club, to invigorating hiking and mountain biking in the rugged Pentland Hills. Fitness enthusiasts have access to fantastic sport and fitness facilities at Craiglockhart Leisure and Tennis Centre, not forgetting the extensive outdoor sports pitches at Meggetland Sports Complex. Kingsknowe is within the catchment area for Longstone Primary School and Firhill High School, and is also well placed for a choice of independent schools, particularly Merchiston Castle School. Thanks to its southwesterly location, Kingsknowe offers convenient access to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9 motorway network, as well as fast, frequent rail and bus links into the
heart of the capital, and close proximity to the Union Canal cycle path.
