CLOSING DATE 19 Aug 21 @ 12.00 noon CHARMING APPEAL, ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
Nestled on a leafy street within the exclusive conservation area of The Grange, this traditional, stone-built detached cottage enjoys one of Edinburgh’s most tranquil residential settings and most sought-after city postcodes. On the doorstep of vibrant Morningside and Bruntsfield, and close to scenic open green space, the three-bedroom home exudes charm and character throughout and boasts elegantly proportioned interiors and retained period features, plus a delightful, south-facing rear garden.
Approached via a pathway through the gated front garden, the main door opens into a vestibule, leading into an inviting reception hall (with storage) setting the scene for the characterful, traditional interiors to follow. To the right of the hall, a living room is brimming with period charm and original features, including a sash-and-case bay window, a focal point fireplace, a lofty ceiling with smooth cornicing detail, and a traditional picture rail. The comfortable reception area flows openly towards the rear of the property, where a further delightful living space is arranged around a second-period fireplace, flanked by an Edinburgh Press, and enjoys pleasant rear garden views. Conveniently connected, a sunny kitchen (with garden access) provides ample cabinet storage and workspace, and is equipped with a freestanding cooker, a washing machine, and a fridge/freezer. Returning back to the hall, a dining room awaits, mirroring the charming period details of the living accommodation and promising a perfect setting for family meals and entertaining or, alternatively, a third double bedroom. Completing the ground-floor is a spacious, modern wet room, enveloped in marble-effect aqua panelling and accommodating a WC-suite and vanity storage. Upstairs, a landing (with eaves access) leads to two well-proportioned double bedrooms, both extended by bay windows, set with original fireplaces, and accompanied by built-in cupboards. The principal bedroom enjoys a versatile, walk-in dressing room with storage. The home is kept warm by gas central heating.
Externally, the home sits within beautifully maintained private gardens. The secluded, south-facing rear garden boasts a manicured lawn, a wonderful array of established shrubs and trees, and comes with a timber-frame garden store. Controlled parking is available in the area with a residents’ permit (Zone 7).
‘The cottage has been a delightful home with its traditional character and ambience and its quiet, yet convenient, city setting. Many a pleasant afternoon has been spent entertaining friends around one of the cosy period fireplaces or whiling the hours away in the tranquil, south-facing garden.’
