Situated in the prestigious Grange conservation area and presented in true move-in condition, this traditional, five-bedroom, double upper villa is an exceptional family home. It is finished with high-specification fixtures and fittings, alongside well-retained period features, and further boasts a bay-windowed living room, a large dining kitchen, and two contemporary bathrooms.
The home’s private front door opens to a staircase (with a built-in cupboard and ambient lighting), leading up to the firstfloor hall, where there is further storage. It provides a wonderful first impression and a glimpse of the sumptuous interiors to follow. The living room is to the front of the home, enjoying generous proportions and a sweeping bay window. Here, elegant décor creates an inviting environment that also perfectly enhances the period details, including the highly intricate cornice work and ceiling rose, and handsome focal-point fireplace inset with a cosy log-burning stove.
It has ample floorspace for a large family dining table and a bright and airy ambience. The stylish design is finished with undercabinet lighting and seamlessly integrated appliances (five-burner gas hob, double oven, dishwasher, and washer/dryer), as well as an American-style fridge/freezer.
Completing the accommodation on this level are two well-proportioned double bedrooms and a highspec three-piece shower room, which is enveloped in sandy-toned tiling.
Upstairs, a galleried landing (with storage) is brightly illuminated by a pyramidal rooflight, framed by ornate cornicing. The three remaining double bedrooms extend from here, all of which continue the same high standards as found throughout. Two of the rooms boast generous footprints, whilst the other has versatile proportions for alternate use as a study. A stunning contemporary bathroom, with a similar aesthetic as the shower room, serves these three bedrooms, offering a three-piece suite that includes a double-ended bathtub and overhead rainfall shower. The property has gas central heating and double-glazed windows, ensuring year-round comfort. Outside, controlled priority parking is available with a residents’ permit (Zone B1). The property is also well-positioned for some of Edinburgh’s best-loved green spaces, including The Meadows, Arthur’s Seat, and Blackford Hill. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window blinds, light fittings, integrated appliances, and a fridge/freezer to be included in the sale.
Characterised by grand Victorian architecture and tranquil, leafy streets, the exclusive conservation area of The Grange has long been one of the capital’s most sought-after residential postcodes. The Grange has retained the quaint, relaxed ambience of a small town, yet is an easy stroll from Morningside or Bruntsfield, which provide outstanding day-to-day services and amenities. Bustling Morningside Road is home to a vibrant blend of independent retailers and high-street stores, cafés, pubs and restaurants, plus highend supermarkets. Residents of The Grange have access to a rich local arts and culture scene, including live music and theatre at the Church Hill Theatre, an independent cinema and a selection of galleries and boutiques. The area also offers fantastic sport and fitness opportunities, including the nearby Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy scenic riverside walks, hillside trails and unrivalled views of the capital. The Grange is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Sciennes Primary and James Gillespie’s High Schools, and is also ideally placed for access to some of the finest independent schools in the country. The area is served by excellent public transport links, offering fast and frequent routes across the capital, day and night.
