71/3 Carnbee Avenue is a luxurious, one-of-a kind Victorian property covering over 2,910 square feet, and offering a characterful turret, and expansive living accommodation.
Reached by a grandiose communal entrance flanked by marble columns, the home's front door opens into an exquisite reception hall that offers convenient storage and an outstanding welcome. Solid oak flooring flows from here through double doors into the drawing room with sprawling proportions and oversized dual-aspect glazing, including a bay window. This unrivalled reception space is heightened by an elegant coffered ceiling and a lavish marble fireplace. The high specification dining kitchen mirrors, with equally impressive dimensions for both lounge and dining furniture, a bay window, and a coffered ceiling. The kitchen is designed around a central island with solid granite worktops, cream-coloured cabinets, complementary splashback tiles, and a four-person breakfast bar. It comes equipped with appliances, including integrated a six-burner gas hob, double oven by Smeg, steam oven by Smeg, eye-level microwave, Miele dishwasher, and deluxe Miele coffee machine, plus a freestanding American-style fridge/ freezer, washer, and dryer.
At the opposite end of the hall are two bedrooms, one a spacious double with built-in storage, the other a versatile single. Completing this level is a high-spec, three-piece shower room with dry underfloor heating and fixtures by Villeroy and Boch; it features a double walk-in shower enclosure, a storage-set washbasin, an illuminated vanity mirror, and a WC. Upstairs, via a first-floor half landing, the second-floor landing (with storage), extends to a modern four-piece family bathroom, another spacious double bedroom (with built-in wardrobes), and the exquisite master suite. This exceptional bedroom has a very generous kingsize footprint, benefitting from built-in wardrobes, two stores, and a luxurious five-piece en-suite. In addition, it has the characterful feature of a turret. The property has gas central heating, partial double glazing, and high-speed fibre optic broadband.
Externally, the home benefits from two private parking spaces and communal access to a vast landscaped garden, creating a sublime setting for summer enjoyment.
Liberton offers a village atmosphere, yet is only situated 3 miles south of the city centre of Edinburgh. With a range of shops close by, including Cameron Toll Shopping Centre and more traditional shops in the older parts of Liberton itself (including a supermarket, post office, bank, chemist, and eateries), there is no need to travel to the centre for shopping.
Regular day and night bus services ensure fast and convenient travel links to the city centre and beyond. There are reputable state schools at primary and secondary level and the area is ideally located for Edinburgh University's Kings Buildings and Napier University. Liberton offers great outdoor pursuits, from a relaxing stroll along the Ellens Glen Woods (part of the Burdieshouse Burn trails), football or picnic in Liberton Public Park, pony trekking in nearby Braid Hills, or a round of golf at Liberton Golf Club, which enjoys panoramic views of the city.
