Terraced House | 5 Bedrooms

Enjoying one of Edinburgh's most prestigious suburban addresses, with captivating views towards the nearby Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill, this remarkable 19th-century mid-terraced townhouse, with an expansive garden, lies in the conservation area of Morningside, renowned for its scenic green spaces and cosmopolitan shopping area.

Excluding all the grandeur expected of an affluent Victorian home, with a tremendous footprint of over 2200 square feet, the house represents excellent flexibility with six bedrooms and two reception areas. Whilst the interiors require updating, an abundance of authentic features remain, thereby promising an exciting opportunity to create an exceptional period home in a highly-exclusive leafy setting.

Marking an impressive entrance to the property is a large vestibule retaining the colourful features of geometric floor tiling and a stained glass internal window. From here you step into an exceptionally spacious hall housing built-in storage and an elegant arched recess, ideal for coats and shoes. Immediately on your right is a southerly-facing, bay-fronted living room ornamented with intricate ceiling cornicing. A fireplace with a tiled insert and a rich wood surround is flanked by a useful store cupboard. Across the hall, a formal dining room conveniently leads into the kitchen. In the dining room, further cupboard storage can be found as well as a sink and the characterful feature of an antique range cooker. Benefiting from a bright dual-aspect, with triple windows, and rear garden access, the large kitchen also provides space for a casual breakfasting area. The room is equipped with an array of contemporary cabinets, a wealth of workspace, a gas cooker and a tall fridge freezer. Completing the ground floor accommodation is one of the six bedrooms on offer; a generous bay- fronted double bedroom easily adaptable to a further reception area. This versatile garden-facing room boasts French doors, cupboard storage, pared-back cornicing and a feature fireplace. On the first floor, flooded with natural light from a cupola window, is a spacious landing accommodating a vast master bedroom and three further double bedrooms, all with charming feature fireplaces and classic cornicing. Two of the bedrooms also house handy wash basins and built-in storage, whilst the bay-fronted master enjoys a sunny aspect, delightful views and exquisite adornments, including a store cupboard with an attractive glass-panelled frontage. All rooms on this level are served by a three-piece bathroom. Finally, the sixth bedroom, a good-sized single, is accessed via stairs from the dining room. The property is heated via a gas central heating system and incorporates a basement for additional storage, accessed from the garden.

Externally, the house sits behind a gravelled garden, bordered by neat hedges, whilst a substantial rear garden includes a further low-maintenance gravelled area ideal for alfresco seating. On-street parking falls under priority parking area B2. EPC Rating - E.
