26 West Mains Road
Offering an enviable suburban setting in highly-desirable Blackford, with views towards Edinburgh’s iconic Arthur’s Seat, this three-bedroom semi-detached house is accompanied by excellent private parking and a beautifully maintained garden.
Lying approximately two miles from the heart of the capital and in the catchment area for Sciennes Primary and James Gillespie’s High School, this appealing home also enjoys easy strolling distance to some of the city’s most celebrated green spaces and cosmopolitan shopping areas. Boasting exquisitely decorated interiors, the internal accommodation incorporates a stylish high-standard finish, whilst large picture windows allow the home to flood with natural light creating a wonderfully light and airy ambience throughout.
Set behind a sunny garden screened by a neat hedgerow for added privacy, the house opens into a vestibule affording access to a bright and spacious, freshly-decorated hallway. This welcoming entrance area integrates useful storage and retains its original sanded wood flooring which flows seamlessly into the neighbouring living area. Lit by an expansive south-facing window, the adjoining living room offers open access to a formal dining room, with both areas finished with crisp white walls accented by elegant ceiling coving.
Adding a characterful focal point to the generous living room is a working fireplace fronted by a rustic slate hearth and flanked by a wealth of display shelving and discreet cupboard storage. Conveniently accessed from the dining room as well as the hall is a dual-aspect fitted kitchen leading into a conservatory and the garden beyond. Off set by muted blue walls, the immaculate, contemporary-styled Magnet kitchen features softly-toned cabinets supplemented by chic finishes, rich timber-effect worktops and a handy built-in pantry store. An integrated fridge, a freezer, an oven and an electric hob, paired with a sleek stainless-steel splashback and striking cooker-hood, accompany a freestanding dishwasher. A freestanding washing machine and tumble dryer are also negotiable in the sale. The
neighbouring conservatory, with garden access, represents a flexible space for numerous uses, such as a third reception room, home study or a casual breakfasting area.
Upstairs, an airy landing, recently painted and welllit by an impressively sized window, houses built-in storage and affords access to the family bathroom and three bedrooms; two south-facing double bedrooms and a rear garden-facing double bedroom with a fabulous far-reaching outlook towards Arthur’s Seat. All three bedrooms are tastefully presented with plush carpeting and benefit from excellent incorporated storage, in particular, the master bedroom which boasts wall-to-wall mirrored wardrobes. Finally, a superbly stylish, recently-renovated bathroom, tiled with on-trend stark-white metro tiling, comprises a modern WC-suite, a towel radiator and an L-shaped bathtub with a double overhead shower combining a deluxe rainfall shower head. Offering outstanding potential for development (with the necessary consents) is a large, almost fully-floored attic space, whilst smart metered gas central heating system and double glazing throughout, ensure a warm and economically-run home.
Outside, the house enjoys a lovingly-tended rear garden, enclosed by fencing and incorporating a neat lawn, well-stocked plant beds and a patio terrace for alfresco dining. To the front of the house, a private driveway, with space for two cars, leads to a detached single garage with power and lighting. Further notable features of the property are WiFi smoke detectors, an alarm system and external security lighting.
