Newbank Lodge, 3 South Trinity Road, Edinburgh EH5 3NU

Nestled at the end of a private lane just off South Trinity Road, this traditional detached house promises a tranquil and secluded family home in one of the capital's most sought- after residential districts.

Arranged over two levels, the extended property boasts some 90 sq. metres of flexible living space, all of which is presented to an impeccable standard. The property enjoys its own driveway with parking space for at least three vehicles, as well as a private garden with two sheds.

Approached via a private lane shared with just one other property, followed by a generous private driveway, outwardly Newbank Lodge bears all the hallmarks of a traditional dwelling, yet inside awaits a modern home with all the style and convenience of contemporary living. The front door opens into a hall, which conceals a useful WC. Here dove grey carpets and d├ęcor paired with natural timber doors introduce the elegant interior design scheme employed throughout. On the right you step into the large living room. By day the space is bathed in natural light owing to its southeast-facing aspect; by night an open fire lends a warm, cosy glow perfect as the dark evenings begin to draw in. Positioned in the newer extension of the house, the kitchen adjacent enjoys wonderful natural light courtesy of a vast skylight and a southeast-facing window. This unique, triangular-shaped room is lined with contemporary timber-effect cabinetry and stone-effect worktops, which house a full range of integrated appliances: a five-burner gas hob with an extractor hood, an electric double oven, a dishwasher, a washing machine and a fridge-freezer. A walk-in pantry provides further hidden storage and houses the gas-fired combi boiler.

The appealing master bedroom is also positioned on the ground floor and incorporates its own bright and spacious shower room. Upstairs the property boasts another large double bedroom and a good-sized single bedroom, both of which benefit from built-in storage and share the three-piece family bathroom on this level. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round home comfort and efficiency.

Newbank Lodge benefits from a private driveway to the front, which comfortably accommodates three vehicles. The private garden across the lane is bound by mature shrubs and trees for optimum privacy and seclusion, and comprises a lawn/drying green, a patio and two garden sheds.
