6 Glebe Grove, Corstorphine, Edinburgh
Tucked at the end of a tranquil cul-de-sac just off bustling St John’s Road, this main door lower villa has been extended to create a contemporary family home that is brimming with exquisite period features, including sash-and-case windows, classic 1930s panel doors and original floorboards. Characterised by typically generous internal proportions and superb natural light, externally the property also enjoys a secluded, southwest-facing private garden and a single driveway.
The main door opens into a practical entrance vestibule, followed by a welcoming central hall, whose soaring ceilings immediately set the tone for the accommodation to follow. Continuing through the hall (passing a convenient cupboard) you reach the inviting living room, which has been extended to create a fabulous ‘brokenplan’ living area – perfect for modern family life and entertaining. At the focal point of the living room is a stunning Arts and Crafts fireplace, complete with an original mantelpiece, a brick-tiled surround and a gleaming copper hood. The room provides flexible scope for various seating arrangements, and also benefits from built-in shelving and storage. The living room flows into the dual-aspect dining area, which is flooded with light from full-height windows (including patio doors onto the garden) and a large skylight. Enclosed behind a half-height wall, the stylish kitchen offers storage and workspace, plus a freestanding electric cooker with a chimney-style cooker hood and an integrated dishwasher.
Returning to the hall, the property boasts three bright and spacious double bedrooms: the main bedroom in particular enjoys a traditional bay window and substantial built-in wardrobes, while the two further bedrooms benefit from fitted storage and a southwesterly aspect, respectively. Completing the internal accommodation is the light and airy three-piece bathroom, which is tiled in crisp white and features a mains-fed shower-over-bath with a glass screen, a pedestal basin and WC. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. The property enjoys a southwest-facing private garden to the rear, with seclusion by stone walls and fencing. Ideal for garden parties or dining al fresco, the fully- enclosed garden comprises a neat lawn framed by matures shrubs and trees, and houses two garden sheds. There is also a generous single driveway to the front, and unrestricted on-street parking directly adjacent.
Offering a wealth of amenities on your doorstep, Corstorphine thoroughly deserves its reputation as a desirable and well-connected residential area. Lying to the west of Edinburgh city centre, the area enjoys outstanding transport links, making commuting by car or public transport fast and convenient. Corstorphine is well known as a shopping mecca in which traditional high street shops sit side-byside with large retail outlets, such as a 24-hour Tesco Extra supermarket, Sainsbury’s and Scotmid. The nearby Gyle Shopping Centre boasts over 40 shops (including an M&S) and various eateries, all indoors. For the sports enthusiast, David Lloyd offers a gym, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and badminton and squash courts. Corstorphine Hill is the ideal place for a tranquil stroll and offers lovely views over the city centre. The area also benefits from its own rugby, football and cricket clubs, as well as local golf courses. Both Craigmount High School and East Craigs Primary School are within
easy walking distance from the property. For those needing to travel further afield for work or leisure, Edinburgh Airport is a 10-minute drive away. The area is also served by regular day and night buses, frequent trains from the South Gyle train station and excellent road links to the city centre, Glasgow, Fife and the South.
