Semi-Detached House | 5 Bedrooms

Occupying a large walled plot in Edinburgh's exclusive Grange conservation area, this five-bedroom semi- detached Victorian villa bears all the hallmarks of a magnificent family home to be cherished for generations.

Internally the property offers almost 3000 sq. feet of exceptionally flexible accommodation and exquisite period features such as sash-and-case windows, as well as further scope to convert the sizeable loft into additional living space. Externally the villa is enveloped by extensive grounds to suit any growing family, including enchanting walled gardens, a tandem garage and a generous single driveway. Enjoying a slightly elevated position behind the beautiful front garden, the sandstone villa boasts classic architectural details such as two- storey bay windows and stone corbels above the imposing front door. The tiled entrance vestibule leads into the grand hall, which is dominated by an ornate oak staircase and a stunning stained glass ceiling light.

The vast living room is the epitome of Victorian elegance having retained an array of original features, including panelled window shutters, intricate cornicing and a striking black marble fireplace with a living-flame gas fire. The dining kitchen adjacent is equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus a range of integrated appliances, including: a Neff double electric oven, a ceramic hob, a concealed extractor, a fridge and a freezer.

The separate, dual-aspect utility room to the rear provides additional fitted storage and space for freestanding appliances, as well as back door to the garden. A flight of stairs from the kitchen leads up to the former maid's room above the utility room, which represents an ideal single bedroom or home office. Completing the ground floor are a spacious three-piece shower room and two roomy hall cupboards.

Off the first floor landing are four outstanding double bedrooms and an airy three-piece bathroom. The master bedroom would also lend itself to use as a formal drawing room owing to its impressive proportions and wide bay window, which commands scenic views towards the Royal Observatory. Gas central heating ensures optimum comfort and efficiency. The villa boasts a delightful front garden and a substantial walled rear garden, both of which have been carefully cultivated to include lush green lawns and a selection of mature shrubs and trees. The property also benefits from a greenhouse, a tandem garage and a generous single driveway. EPC Rating - D. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, freestanding dishwasher and freestanding washing machine to be included in the sale; furniture available by separate negotiation.
