52 Glenbrook Road
Enjoying an idyllic, semi-rural setting on the edge of desirable Balerno, this three-bedroom steading conversion strikes the perfect balance of traditional charm and contemporary luxury. Behind the rustic stone façade awaits a unique family home with two outstanding reception rooms and a stunning dining kitchen, plus a secluded rear garden backed by green fields and woodland.
Enveloped by tranquil countryside yet just seconds’ drive from Balerno village, the traditional steading has been sympathetically converted into three exquisite homes with allocated parking. Welcoming you inside is a spacious entrance hall, where premium Karndean flooring and crisp white walls instantly create a light and airy feel. On the left, the large living room is flooded with light from twin south-facing casement windows, and by night the space is transformed into a cosy retreat, complete with a roaring open fire.
At the heart of the family home is the open-plan dining kitchen and family room: a cohesive hub for cooking, eating, relaxing and entertaining. The contemporary cream-gloss handleless fitted kitchen conceals a wealth of storage, and is replete with an enviable Rangemaster electric range cooker, an extractor hood and an integrated dishwasher.
This leaves ample scope for a freestanding fridge/freezer and a good-sized table for dining and/or food preparation. Flooded with natural light courtesy of a fully glazed roof and patio doors onto the rear garden, the adjoining family room represents a versatile blank canvas to suit endless configurations. Returning to the entrance hall, the ground floor also features a generous two-piece WC and a fitted utility room with a traditional Belfast sink. Continuing upstairs onto the sunny landing, at one end is the enchanting master bedroom, which boasts scenic views across green fields, as well as extensive fitted wardrobes and an immaculate en-suite shower room. Also on the first floor are a second double bedroom, a generous single bedroom, and a three-piece family bathroom with a mains-fed shower – all of which enjoy a sunny, southerly aspect. In addition to excellent internal storage, the property benefits from a secure external cellar store and a garden shed/summerhouse. Reproduction double-glazed casement windows and oil-fired central heating ensure year-round comfort and efficiency. The private rear garden is enclosed and screened by tall fencing, and comprises a neat patio and a generous lawn. The property benefits from two allocated parking spaces within the steading courtyard.
