23 Woodville Terrace forms part of the much-loved Lochend Colonies conservation area. Situated close to Leith & The Shore, this traditional double upper villa offers a delightful home in a desirable area.
Lochend Colonies was constructed in the late 19th century as part of a pioneering scheme to manage Edinburgh’s housing shortage. These properties were specifically designed to give each family their own front door and garden. As a result, 23 Woodville Terrace is approached via an enclosed private garden. The front door opens into a vestibule with stairs leading to the first floor hallway, as well as a convenient WC.
A Charming Blend of Classic Features & Contemporary Interior Design
The east-facing living room to the front is brimming with authentic charm and character. Features include: restored floorboards, a period fireplace, decorative cornices and a ceiling rose, all complimented by sage-coloured walls.
The rustic floorboards continue through to the impressive dining kitchen. With grey Shaker-inspired cabinets, walnut worktops, as well as a Belfast-style double sink, the kitchen is as stylish as it is functional.
The study, just off the kitchen, offers a versatile space. Currently utilised as a home office, the room is also ideal for a nursery.
This level also accommodates the first of three double bedrooms.
Upstairs houses two further double bedrooms. The master bedroom features fitted wardrobes, whilst the other room yields views of Calton Hill and Arthur’s Seat, as well as Edinburgh Castle.
Relaxing In Luxury
Beautifully presented, the bathroom offers a traditional four-piece suite. Stylish monochrome finishes and a checkered black & white floor are paired with a luxurious rolltop bath. A corner shower compartment, pedestal basin, close-coupled toilet and a Victorian-inspired towel warmer complete the look.
Further Benefits & Outside Space
The second floor also boasts a generous cupboard and additional eaves storage. Double glazed windows, together with gas central heating, provides optimum home comfort and efficiency all year round.
Designed with easy maintenance in mind, the private garden features a drying area, shed and space for patio furniture. Unrestricted on-street parking is available on Woodville Terrace and in the vicinity.
