Lying at the foot of Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill local Nature Reserve, close to local shops and schools, and just over 2 miles from the heart of the capital, this five-bedroom, two-bathroom detached villa would be perfect for growing families or, due to its successful track record as a holiday let, rental investors.
The front door opens into a vestibule flowing through to a hall with storage and a WC. The living room is on the first floor, reached via a staircase and a landing with further storage. Occupying a generous footprint allowing for a wealth of lounge furniture layouts, the neutrally-decorated, dual-aspect reception area is illuminated by a quartet of windows framing breathtaking views encompassing the castle, Arthur’s Seat, and Salisbury Crags. The room is heightened by a wood-clad vaulted ceiling and a fireplace, and features patio doors opening onto a spacious balcony with plenty of room for alfresco dining furniture. Returning back to the ground-floor hall, a small flight of stairs leads to a split-level, where you will find a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. The kitchen incorporates a range of classically-styled cabinets accompanied by plentiful workspace, splashback tiling, and a breakfast bar, as well as room for a dining table and chairs. An oven, grill, microwave, hob, and extractor hood are integrated, whilst a freestanding fridge and a dishwasher are included. The kitchen is supplemented by a utility room (with external access) which houses a washing machine. The bedrooms on this level consist of a double and a good-sized single, both offering plenty of space for bedroom furnishings and enjoying rear garden views. The tiled bathroom comes complete with a bathtub with a shower attachment, and a WC-suite.
The remaining bedrooms are on the ground floor and comprise a master with built-in wardrobes and a four-piece en-suite bathroom; a second double with built-in storage; and a good-sized single. All three bedrooms on this floor enjoy the same fantastic outlook as the living room. The home is heated by gas central heating and benefits from double-glazed windows.
Externally, the home is accompanied by front and rear gardens. The front garden boasts a superb decked dining terrace sharing the outstanding views enjoyed by the property, as well as lawns bordered by neat hedges. The back garden also features a lawn and a patio. Private parking is provided by a detached single garage.
