An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a substantial family property, with private garden, in a peaceful cul-de-sac close to the city centre, in the thriving neighbourhood of Bruntsfield.
This is a distinctive, well proportioned, four-bedroom, ground and garden flat, forming part of an attractive former mid-terraced villa. Providing excellent, flexible family accommodation, including original features, there is also a private walled garden to the rear. The property has been fully modernised and maintained to a high standard throughout.
Accessed from an attractive front garden area at street level, stone steps lead up to the common main doorway with brass fittings and decorative window surrounds. The entrance to the property is within the shared vestibule area with traditional mosaic tiled floor. The accommodation comprises:
On raised ground floor: entrance hall with entry phone system and large storage cupboard; large sitting room, bay window with original working shutters, and impressive original fireplace and mantel; large open plan kitchen/dining room with modern kitchen units, island work top area, tasteful lighting, and leafy outlook to the rear through two full-height windows with original working shutters; utility/toilet with storage above; traditional high ceilings throughout; internal staircase to garden level with bookshelves taking up one wall.

The garden is made up of open areas, including a timber deck area, and beds with a wide variety of shrubs, plants and mature trees. It is surrounded by stone walls, full height at the rear and half height on each side with wooden fencing above.
Features include: popular location, entry phone system, many original features, gas central heating, and large kitchen/diner with tranquil outlook to the private rear garden.
Located in the very heart of the ever popular Bruntsfield district, and approximately one mile to the south of Edinburgh’s city centre, it is within walking distance of Princes Street.
Set just back from the main thoroughfare, this flat is surprisingly quiet. Together with neighbouring Morningside the area has a range of specialist shops, banking and postal services, bars and restaurants, including Montpeliers. For larger shopping requirements, there is a Sainsbury local on Bruntsfield Place, Tesco Metro at Holy Corner and an M&S Food Hall and Waitrose Supermarket on Morningside Road.
The property is also well situated for the City’s business and commerce centres at Lothian Road and Fountainbridge as well as Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh University, Napier University and The Royal Hospital for Sick Children. The wide range of leisure facilities in the area include theatres, cinemas, golf courses, and the open spaces of The Meadows and Bruntsfield Links.
George Watson's College, George Heriot's and Merchiston Castle School are all within easy reach. The property is also fortunate to fall within the catchment area for Bruntsfield Primary School and Boroughmuir High School.
For the commuter, regular bus services from Bruntsfield Place take you to the City Centre and surrounding areas. For those traveling further afield, the City Bypass is within easy driving distance and provides access to the main motorway networks, Edinburgh Airport and the new Queensferry Crossing, whilst the main railway stations and tram connections are also nearby at Haymarket and Waverley.Request Home Report
