Property Description

This outstanding double upper villa is located on a peaceful street in the prime residential area of Newington on Edinburgh’s south side which sits within easy reach of a variety of excellent local amenities, highly regarded schools and all the attractions of the city centre. Working with an award-winning interior designer, the current owners have carried out a full renovation of the property which has been completed to the highest specifications, leaving no stone unturned and with exceptional attention to detail.  Benefitting from its own private entrance, this wonderful family home offers substantial accommodation in immaculate condition throughout.

On the first floor, there is an impressive east facing sitting room with the bay window offering direct views to Arthur's Seat. This elegant room has grand high ceilings, intricate cornicing, open fire with surround, hardwood herringbone flooring (which also runs throughout much of this level with the luxury of no thresholds between rooms) and concealed access to a study via a door disguised as a bookcase. A formal dining room, also with views of Arthur's Seat, is situated next door and offers the perfect space for family meals and entertaining.  There is a bespoke, made to measure kitchen by Ashley Ann that features high end Siemens Appliances, Quooker boiling tap and stone worktops. A built-in window seat offers space for casual dining and there is a walk-in pantry and separate utility cupboard. The first floor is also home to a spacious double bedroom and an upgraded bathroom suite with unique features that include an original cast iron bath, handmade tiles, handcrafted barrel vanity and stone basin. The original balustrade connecting both floors has been beautifully maintained and the cupola above floods the hall with natural light. 

On the upper level, there are four generous double bedrooms, all recently redecorated, and a stylish shower room with handmade tiles, recessed and lit shower shelf, and black matt hardware that includes a waterfall shower and separate attachment. There is gas central heating with new boiler and radiators and all new double glazed windows. Improvements to the windows, heating and insulation of the property have brought the energy performance rating to an impressive category B. Outside, there is a west-facing private walled garden to the rear with mature trees, lawn, paved seating area and garden shed. Ample on street parking is available.
