Stuart & Stuart are proud to present this seldom available end-terrace Victorian townhouse in exclusive Comely Bank, offering a stunning six bedroom family home with idyllic private gardens, a double garage/workshop and off-street parking.
Enveloped by enchanting enclosed gardens, the six-bedroom property is characterised by the opulent proportions and natural light synonymous with the era, as well as exquisite period features that are sympathetic enhanced by heritage décor and contemporary kitchen and bathroom design. Of particular note is the semi-detached double garage/workshop and residents’ off-street parking to the rear, which is accessible via private road just off Fettes Avenue.
Occupying a commanding corner plot, the south-facing sandstone Victorian townhouse is afforded outstanding seclusion and privacy by stone boundary walls and manicured hedges. The front door on the western elevation opens into a welcoming vestibule, which boasts a cloakroom and flows into the large hall. To the right, the vast living room is an exceptionally warm and inviting space owing to its magnificent south-facing bay window with traditional panelled shutters. Its soaring ceiling is adorned with intricate cornicing and friezes, and at the heart of the room is a splendid open fireplace. Across the hall, the tremendous dual-aspect dining kitchen benefits from a west facing bay window and a charming feature fireplace surrounded with a row of Dutch coloured picture tiles and flanked by a classic Edinburgh Press. Designed for busy family life and entertaining, the room is supplemented with a separate utility room with an original double Belfast sink, a walk-in store and a WC. The luxurious bespoke kitchen is arranged around a central island with bar seating and draws on an elegant palette of soft cream, solid oak and dark granite. The timeless Shaker cabinetry houses a wealth of storage and integrated appliances, namely a microwave, a dishwasher and a fridge, and sitting pride of place within the chimneybreast is a gleaming AGA range cooker.
Flooded with natural light from a spectacular newly installed cupola, the first floor accommodates three impressive double bedrooms and a sunny shower room; the second boasts two further double bedrooms (one with a south-facing stone balcony), a generous single bedroom, an immaculate newly built three-piece bathroom and a walk-in store. The house benefits from gas central heating, original timber-framed sash case-case windows and partial double glazing.
The landscaped garden features a manicured lawn, a suntrap patio and a selection of mature shrubs and trees, while the semi-detached double garage/workshop to the rear is equipped with an electric garage door and an original work bench.
