26 Vivian Terrace
Peacefully located in the desirable suburb of Davidson’s Mains, less than 20 minutes’ commute from the heart of Edinburgh, this traditional end-terrace villa has been extended to create an expansive family home boasting five bedrooms, three bathrooms and several sociable living areas, with great flexibility to adapt the layout to one’s own requirements. In addition to two storeys of impeccably presented accommodation with a stylish contemporary finish, the home enjoys a substantial, well-maintained garden and convenient private parking.
Nestled behind a garden bordered by neat hedgerows for added privacy, the villa opens into a bright entrance vestibule and adjoining hallway. Accessed from the vestibule is the generous, dual-aspect living room leading directly onto the rear garden and enjoying an elegant decorative appearance. Immaculate neutral décor and carpeting are colourfully enhanced by chic accent wallpaper, whilst a living flame fire sits within a tasteful, understated surround. Reached from the hall is the home’s second reception area; a homely family room exuding a warm, inviting ambience, thanks to its richly-varnished pine floor and a rustic log-burning stove. This delightful south facing space also houses the handy features of a clothes pulley and a built-in storage/ display area, as well as providing direct access to the adjoining kitchen.
Here, an impressive dining area is lit by an array of vast multi-aspect windows and skylights, as well as French doors opening onto the garden – creating a spectacular setting for year-round entertaining. The exceptional high-spec finish continues in the kitchen area, fitted with an extensive selection of richly-toned wood-effect cabinets complemented by stylish chrome fittings, ambient integrated downlighting, a sleek stainless-steel splashback and durable quartz worktops. Further equipping the space is an inset stainless-steel Belfast sink and fully integrated goods comprising a fridge freezer, a dishwasher, a washing machine, an eye-level oven and a five-burner hob with a feature chimney-style hood. Also located on the ground floor are two of the home’s five bedrooms served by a chicly appointed bathroom featuring a bathtub with a shower attachment. The double bedroom is extended by a south-facing bay window with a characterful panelled surround, whilst the single bedroom to the rear of the property is currently utilised as a cosy snug area.
Upstairs, an airy landing (with eaves storage access) accommodates the three remaining bedrooms; all good-sized doubles and favourably south-facing. Occupying a large footprint with ample space for bedroom furniture, the master suite enjoys a pleasant dual aspect outlook, including garden-facing French windows opening onto a charming Juliet balcony. An en-suite shower room with a walk-in enclosure and access to handy eaves storage completes this deluxe sleeping area. Finally, the remaining upstairs bedrooms are served by a similarly-styled shower room. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm and economically-run home. Outside, this wonderful suburban home is accompanied by lawned and terraced areas to the front and rear. Bordered by secure fencing, hedgerows and leafy mature trees, the sizeable rear garden also boasts a shed for external storage. A gated driveway to the front of the villa provides private parking.
