Situated in the sought-after Newington area of the city, this traditional double upper villa (on the first and second floors) covers 2,820 square feet and comprises an extremely spacious sitting room with sunroom off, a large dining kitchen, two bathrooms, six further rooms and a southwest facing private area of garden ground.
This traditional, double upper villa, enjoying as it does a prime location close to superb local amenities, extensive green spaces and the city centre, has all of the makings of an impressively large family home with period features as well as providing some exciting opportunities for modernisation.
The private main door opens to a staircase which leads to the first-floor reception hall. This provides access to the spacious sitting room, which is brightly lit by a bay window and additional glazing. Period features include an intricate cornice and a handsome feature fireplace. The room has wooden floorboards ready to be primed or carpeted as preferred. There is also a small adjoining sunroom with charming feature windows.
In the dining kitchen, a galley-style layout leaves ample floorspace for a large family dining table. It comes well-appointed with cabinets and excellent work space, incorporating two integrated ovens and gas hobs, an undercounter washing machine, an undercounter fridge, traditional clothes pulley, and a pantry-style cupboard.
Also on this level are two further generously proportioned rooms. These could be used as a master and second bedroom, the former with a shelved recess, highly ornate cornice work and ceiling rose and the latter with a traditional press cupboard. Alternatively these rooms could, for example, provide additional living/home office space. A traditional staircase leads upstairs to a broad landing, with a cupboard and a pyramidal rooflight, where the four remaining king-size bedrooms are to be found, all of which feature washbasins and neutral décor. One bedroom further benefits from a built-in wardrobe, whilst another has fitted shelving and a period mantelpiece. There are two three-piece bathrooms with overhead showers, one on each of the first and second floors.
Gas central heating ensures year-round comfort and the traditional sash windows provide an abundance of natural light.
Externally, the property benefits from a southwest facing private garden that is laid to lawn and framed by mature shrubs and trees. In addition, Kilmaurs Road is a Priority Parking Area (B7), offering convenient controlled parking for which residents’ permits are available.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated appliances, a washing machine, a fridge, and a garden shed are included in the sale.
