4 Braid Mount Rise
Nestled within a tranquil cul-de-sac in the desirable Braids area of Morningside, this four-bedroom detached villa promises a delightful family home with magnificent views across the city, encompassing such iconic landmarks as Edinburgh Castle, The Forth Bridge and Queensferry Crossing.
Classic period features include an original fireplace and restored floorboards, which are enhanced by elegant interior design. Externally the house enjoys an enclosed south-facing garden, a single garage, a double driveway and a vast storage cellar with light, power and water supplies. Planning permission has also been obtained for a single-storey extension to the side and rear.
The villa enjoys an elevated position behind a monoblock driveway with stone steps up to the contemporary front door. Behind awaits a tiled entrance vestibule with a traditional glazed door into an equally inviting hall with an under-stair storage cupboard. On the right, the spacious living room is flooded with natural light from a wide bay window (plus a hexagonal window to the side) and at the focal point of the room is an original feature fireplace with scope to reinstate an open fire. Continuing to the rear you reach the impressive dining kitchen, which benefits from dual-aspect windows to the south and west. Finished in muted sage paired with a striking chequer-tiled floor, the space falls naturally into a well-appointed kitchen and a convivial dining area with direct access to the landscaped rear garden – perfect for family barbecues or dining al fresco.
The white-gloss fitted kitchen is topped with solid timber worktops (including a handy breakfast peninsula), and accommodates a range of freestanding appliances, including a stainless steel range cooker, a washing machine, a dishwasher and an American-style fridge/freezer.
The ground floor also boasts two well-proportioned double bedrooms and the immaculate four-piece family bathroom. Upstairs, the large master bedroom incorporates extensive built-in wardrobes and useful eaves storage, not to mention magnificent views of Edinburgh Castle and beyond. The first floor also features a south-facing double bedroom, further eaves storage and the stylish three-piece shower room. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
The villa benefits from a monoblock double driveway to the front and a south-facing garden to the rear, which has been fully-enclosed and landscaped to include a manicured lawn and two decked seating areas with external lighting and power. To the side is a single garage/workshop equipped with light and power, and this allows access to a large storage cellar with light, power and water.
