131 (GF) Mayfield Road boasts exceptional accommodation, stylishly presented and finished to a high standard throughout, as well as extensive private grounds to the front and rear, and sought-after single driveway.
Lying behind the established private garden, the former townhouse instantly impresses with its grand bay windows, decorative masonry and imposing main entrance. A secure entry-phone system allows access to the splendid shared entrance vestibule. From here the stained-glass front door opens into a generous hall with a convenient two-piece WC, and on the left is the spectacular living room. Flooded with light from a west-facing bay window, its soaring ceiling is accentuated by Victorian picture rails, plasterwork friezes and toothed coving, plus an intricate ceiling rose. The room also boasts a black fireplace with a modern living-flame gas fire, plus a useful built-in cupboard. The contemporary dining kitchen enjoys overlooks the rear garden, not to mention fabulous views across the Waverley Lawn Tennis Squash and Sports Club toward Arthur’s Seat. The stylish fitted kitchen is replete integrated appliances and a walk-in pantry provides additional hidden storage. This leaves room for a large dining table. With equally impressive views towards Arthur’s Seat, the sizeable dining room adjacent offers a more formal entertaining space, or would make a fantastic (third) double bedroom. Continuing downstairs, the garden level accommodates the master bedroom, which incorporates an immaculate en-suite shower room; a double bedroom with a walk-in cupboard; a single bedroom/study; a three-piece family bathroom; a two-piece WC; two walk-in cupboards and a walk-in wardrobe. The lower hall leads through an exquisite stained glass door into the wonderful triple-aspect conservatory (with gas central heating), which provides direct access to the walled rear garden. The property features some original sash-and-case windows with efficient secondary glazing, as well as heritage-style double-glazed sash-and-case windows. Gas central heating ensures optimum home comfort and economy, all year round.
The vast rear garden is bound by rustic stone walls and has been landscaped for minimal maintenance. The private front garden is also well-established with shrubs and trees, and incorporates a single driveway. This is supplemented with residents’ permit parking (Priority Parking B6) and free on-street parking in the vicinity.
Mayfield is a most desirable residential district situated approx 2 miles south of the City Centre. Bordering onto Newington, there is an abundance of amenities, including a variety of specialist shops and banking, building society and Post Office services, along with a good choice of bars and restaurants. Edinburgh's prestigious private schools and highly regarded state schools are within easy reach, as are many Edinburgh University campuses. Regular bus services run from this area to the City Centre and surrounding beyond; by travelling south one can connect with the City Bypass.
