38 Murrayfield Gardens
Characterised by the grand proportions and period features synonymous with Victorian architecture, this magnificent mid terraced villa offers an exceptionally rare opportunity to create a stunning family home in exclusive Murrayfield. Behind its handsome stone façade the three-storey property boasts a wealth of flexible accommodation including two reception rooms, two kitchens, six bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as substantial storage, utility areas and private gardens – all of which represent tremendous development potential. The property also boasts breathtaking southwesterly views encompassing Murrayfield Stadium and the silhouette of the Pentland Hills.
Positioned behind the southwest-facing front garden, double storm doors open into the classic entrance vestibule, which has retained its original floor tiles and a stained-leaded-glass vestibule door. As you step into the reception hall, its vast proportions instantly convey the sheer size and scale of the accommodation to follow. The elegant living room to the right is bathed in southwesterly light from a spectacular bay window, and is brimming with exquisite period features, including timber panelling and tall skirting boards, panelled doors, intricate cornicing, original floorboards and a striking fireplace – all of which are ripe for restoration.
Across the hall is a versatile dining room, which enjoys a feature fireplace with an original maid’s bell, as well as timber framed French doors onto the garden. The well-proportioned kitchen adjacent incorporates extensive fitted cabinetry, as well as two generous pantry cupboards. The separate utility room to the rear allows further storage, laundry facilities and a WC, as well as a back door to the garden and ladder access to a good-sized storage loft above.
Returning to the reception hall, the wide oak staircase ascends to the airy first-floor landing, which accommodates two double bedrooms, a single bedroom/dressing room and a bright three-piece bathroom. The master bedroom to the front mirrors the size and grandeur of the living room below, and features another charming fireplace and a bay window. Bathed in light from a striking cupola the second floor landing boasts three further double bedrooms, a three-piece bathroom, and a second kitchen that would lend itself to endless uses such as another double bedroom or a luxurious family bathroom. The property has retained its original timber-framed sash-and-case windows throughout, and is equipped with gas central heating.
The southwest-facing front garden is screened by established hedges and features a neat lawn and a selection of mature shrubs. The substantial walled garden to the rear would benefit from clearing to realise its full potential and promises scope to create an inner-city idyll. The garden also accommodates a shed and a summerhouse. Controlled residents’ parking (Zone B9) is available on Murrayfield Gardens and in the vicinity.
