23 Morningside Grove
Promising a charming period home in one of Edinburgh’s most desirable suburbs, this generous mid-terrace townhouse enjoys four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, a delightful walled garden and subtle neutral interiors drawing focus to the home’s many characterful original features. Located in a leafy area of Morningside, the property benefits from proximity to fantastic local amenities, including high-end supermarkets, fashionable cafes and eateries and a boutique cinema, as well as access to excellent transport links and prestigious schools.
A sandstone double bay-fronted exterior and solid front door create an impressive introduction to the home. Stepping into the property, you enter a practical vestibule leading through to a hall via a door with an enchanting stained-glass detail. Boasting useful built-in storage, this airy, high-ceilinged entrance area, featuring classic cornicing and a dado rail, as well as stripped pine flooring, perfectly showcases the space and period charm on offer.
Immediately on your right, a magnificent, similarly-styled living room awaits. Bathed in natural light from a westerly-facing bay window and providing handy cupboard storage, this expansive sitting area is sumptuously enhanced by decorative plasterwork, including ornate cornicing, and an exquisite fireplace, with a cast iron and tiled insert – a prominent authentic feature found throughout the home.
Across the hall, a plushly carpeted dining room, boasting built-in storage and a further period fireplace, enjoys open access into the kitchen – a perfect layout for socialising with dinner guests. Benefiting from garden access, handy for summer entertaining, the bright dual-aspect kitchen comes equipped with a wide array of stylish beech-effect fitted cabinets and extensive workspace. An integrated oven, a gas hob and a gleaming extractor hood, as well as a freestanding tall fridge freezer, a washing machine and a dishwasher are also incorporated.
Completing the ground floor accommodation is a modern shower room and one of the four bedrooms on offer; a generous double enjoying garden access and a feature fireplace, and easily adaptable to a further reception area.
The remaining bedrooms, three remarkably spacious doubles, can be found on the first floor, leading off a galleried landing flooded in natural light from a large sky-light window.
All bedrooms retain their beautiful original fireplaces, with the quietly positioned, rear-facing bedrooms laid with plush carpeting and the master bedroom warmly enhanced by richly varnished pine flooring. Illuminated by double windows, including a magnificent bay, and housing attractive display and cupboard storage, the master bedroom also echoes the grand proportions and ornamental details of the living room. Bedroom 2 is extended by a large adjoining room, ideal as a nursery or a dressing area.
Finally, a generous family bathroom comes replete with a modern WC and bathtub with an overhead shower. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm and economically-run home.
Outside, the home’s rear garden provides a delightful, fully-secure space for family recreation, featuring a lawn and a dining terrace, as well as a shed for external storage. On-street parking in the vicinity is conveniently unrestricted.
