The Ridges, 458 Perth Road, Dundee DD2 1NG
Covering over 4,207 square feet and set within magnificent garden grounds in Dundee's prestigious West End, this exceptional Arts and Crafts-style, B-listed, detached villa by Thoms and Wilkie (circa late 1920s) offers incredible accommodation and sumptuous, contemporary interior design that sympathetically complements the character of the building.
This luxury, high-specification family home has been designed with classical proportions and a wealth of bay and five-light bow windows to maximise the flow of natural light, boasting five generous bedrooms (plus a box room), four impressive reception rooms, multiple bathrooms, a double garage, and more. With an incredible approach and stunning architecture, the villa astounds from the outset
Inside, the front door opens to a vestibule leading to a hall with natural wood flooring (found throughout much of the ground floor). It offers a cloakroom and WC, before heading left into the living room. Here, triple-aspect glazing, including a door to the garden terrace, ensures a light-filled and natural ambience, whilst the very generous footprint is kept warm and cosy by a traditional open fireplace.
It is the first of four impressive reception rooms, alongside a similar-sized family room and garden room (also with open fireplaces and doors to outside), and a sophisticated dining room, conveniently located by the kitchen. The kitchen itself has a stylish, wholly modern design that captures the eye, centred around a floating island with a breakfast bar. It features ocean-hued base cabinets, paired with white wall cabinets and a mix of luxury Corian and hardwood worktops, all framed by classic metro-style splashbacks. It houses a Belfast sink, a dual-fuel range cooker, and an integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen is further supplemented by a utility room, a laundry room, a store, and a pantry with additional workspace and cabinetry.
Upstairs, the naturally-lit, first-floor landing connects to the five bedrooms, which consist of three very generous king-size rooms, one spacious and airy double, and a large, versatile single. The extravagant master suite, framed by a handsome feature fireplace, also boasts built-in wardrobes and a deluxe, aqua-hued, en-suite shower room, with twin washbasins and an oversized walk-in shower area. The second and third king-size bedrooms also enjoy vintage fireplaces, with the former benefitting from built-in storage. All of the bedrooms are cosily carpeted and presented to very high standards. There is also two large stores and a box room for creative use as a dressing area or home office. Finally, a high-spec family bathroom, with an exquisite design and a luxurious five-piece suite, completes the amazing accommodation on offer. Outstanding storage options are found throughout. A new gas central heating system, with a new boiler and vintage-style radiators, ensures year-round comfort, whilst traditional leaded- glass windows add further charm.
Outside, extensive mature garden grounds envelope the home, offering a natural haven for the family, with vast manicured lawns to the front and rear that are fringed by herbaceous borders and flanked by established trees. There is also a sheltered, south- facing terrace for alfresco dining and a shed. A detached double garage and driveway provide comprehensive parking for multiple vehicles.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and a range cooker to be included in the sale. EPC Rating: D.
Welcome to Dundee, a city appearing recently in the Sunday Times top twelve places to live in Britain, and it's easy to see why. Boasting record-high sunshine hours and perched on the Firth of Tay estuary on Scotland's beautiful east coast, the city is a historic port and now boasts the designation of a UNESCO City of Design.
The £1billion investment in the city's waterfront has been transformational: of particular note is Scotland's first design museum, the V & A Dundee.
