16 South Morton Street, Edinburgh EH15 2NB
This charming Victorian semi-detached house boasts versatile and generous family accommodation with four bedrooms and two reception rooms, enjoying stunning open views, a large walled garden, and a single garage.
Furthermore, it offers an enviable, leafy setting in sought after Joppa beside a vibrant park, within easy walking distance of Portobello beach and excellent local amenities and transport links. The property retains an abundance of desirable period features, whilst also offering new owners an exciting opportunity for modernisation, providing the chance to create an outstanding family home in a sought- after location. Set quietly back off the street, nestled behind a lawn and an ornamental garden, the main door of this sandstone-fronted house opens (via a charming period-tiled vestibule), into the welcoming reception hall. To the rear is a generous living room, offering ample space for relaxing and entertaining. Fronted by a deep bay window, it affords lovely views of the rear garden enhancing an elegant ambience, which is heightened by delicate cornice work and original, handsome timber doors and architraves. A marble mantelpiece, with an inset electric fire, creates a cosy focal point, whilst two built-in cupboards offer useful storage. Next door, the majestic formal dining room (with further storage) is perfect for convivial gatherings and dinner parties. It enjoys a striking feature fireplace, inset with an electric fire, lavish cornicing, and an airy dual-aspect, with sash and case windows offering a sunny outlook.
In the dining kitchen, patio doors afford direct access to the rear garden, creating an ideal layout for a family. It is organised around a central dining area with traditional cabinets and contrasting white worktops, housing space for freestanding appliances, alongside a solid-fuel Welstead range cooker set within an inglenook recess. A cupboard and a walk-in larder offer additional storage, whilst a large utility room provides a discreet laundry area, currently fitted as a convenient shower room. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a cloakroom, fitted with a WC suite, and an accessible, generously proportioned double bedroom, which enjoys a sunny outlook.
Upstairs, the galleried landing, illuminated by an overhead cupola, leads to the remaining bedrooms. Accessed from here, the impressive master bedroom extends the full depth of the house, benefitting from a very generous footprint. It boasts a triple aspect and commands stunning open views over leafy parkland, to the Firth of Forth and to Arthur's Seat. Across the landing are two versatile single bedrooms, with alternative use as a home office, or, potentially, to be converted into a bathroom suite (subject to consent). Completing the first-floor accommodation is a handy WC and a naturally-lit box room with eaves storage. The property has access to a gas connection and retains its traditional sash and case windows. Outside, the rear garden is ideal for a family, offering a long expanse of lawn enclosed within a traditional wall for shelter and privacy. There is also a useful single garage, with power and lighting (accessible from South Morton Street) and an attached, brick-built shed for potential use as a workshop or a sunroom. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, curtains, and the freestanding cooker to be included in the sale. Some items of furniture are available by separate negotiation. EPC Rating: G.
The sought-after area of Joppa is just a brief walk from the long golden coastline that stretches the length of Portobello.
The leafy neighbourhood has easy access to Portobello's fantastic local amenities too, with thriving cafés, bars, and restaurants all close to hand, as well as fashionable independent stores. More extensive shopping facilities can be enjoyed in the capital, which is easily reached via road links and frequent day and night bus services. Closer to home, there is a nearby Asda superstore and Fort Kinnaird retail park.
