Spread over 2972 square feet, this 5/6 bedroom three-reception room upper villa covers the first/top floor of a Victorian manor house, boasting lavish interiors and sumptuous period features, in addition to a sprawling floorplan, two private gardens, and a private garage.
Situated within the exclusive Greenhill conservation area within strolling distance of Bruntsfield Links, this exclusive 5/6 bedroom, three-reception room, three-bathroom upper villa forms the first/top floor of a Victorian manor house that is brimming with grandeur and traditional character. Spread over 2972 square feet, the home boasts generous accommodation with classic styling to suite the desirable period details; it also boasts two large private gardens, a private garage, and unrivalled storage options.
Nestled behind a gated front garden and delighting with Victorian kerb appeal, the front door to this lavish home is reached via a flight of stone steps, opening into a porch and a traditional-styled reception foyer. It is an instantly warm welcome, which extends into the first of three hallways. From here, a very generous living room is to the right, offering flexible floor space for an array of comfortable lounge furniture for relaxing and socialising. Enjoying tasteful floral wallpaper and neutral décor (divided by a picture rail), it has a grand and regal atmosphere heightened by a dual-aspect, with a sash window and a large bay window (including traditional working shutters) flooding the area with natural light. An ornate gas fireplace with a lavish marble mantelpiece frames the room, which is enhanced by smooth cornicing, a classic chandelier, and original timber flooring (also found in the kitchen and family room). For more intimate and relaxed evenings, the neighbouring family room enjoys similar styling and period features (including an elegant marble fireplace). If required, this additional reception room could also be utilised as a sixth bedroom.
A large dining area (defined by exquisite cornicing) adds a third reception space and a charming place for formal meals. It has access to two storage cupboards and a nearby (well-appointed) utility room with a washer, and is conveniently located beside the kitchen. In the dual-aspect dining kitchen, an inspired farmhouse design is beautifully decorated with neutral tones and lively terracotta feature walls separated by crisp white splashback tiles and a colourful border. It is an attractive design bolstered by country-style cabinets in cream, solid black granite worktops, and a duo of frosted glass cabinets for an added touch of modernity. It incorporates space for a table and a range of seamlessly integrated appliances (five-burner gas hob, eye-level electric double oven, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer).
Located throughout the family home are five generously proportioned double bedrooms, the majority spacious enough for bedside furnishings and a study desk. The fifth bedroom offers the smallest dimensions compensating with a large built-in store cupboard. Naturally, the master bedroom has the greater floorplan with ample room for a king-size bed and comfortable seating. A large traditional sash window illuminates the room, with working wooden shutters for peace at night. Furthermore, there is shelving for display items, as well as an en-suite wet room with a storage cupboard.
Completing the first floor is a bright three-piece family bathroom with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, presented in a traditional style, which perfectly complements the classic floor pattern. Finally, a ground floor store room and a modern three-piece shower room finish the home. Elegant sash windows with working wooden shutters add further charm, with partial (conservation grade) double glazing. A gas central heating system provides year round comfort.
Externally, the home enjoys well-tended private gardens to the front and rear. The former provides a good-size lawn, colourful flowerbeds, and secure external storage. Similarly, the latter offers a large manicured lawn, designated planting beds, and outstanding privacy for alfresco dining and summer soirees. A private garage offers secure off-street parking. Furthermore, controlled on-street parking is also available with a residents’ permit (Zone S2).
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window blinds, integrated appliances, and a washer to be included in the sale. Select furnishings, light fittings, and curtains may be available subject to negotiation.
