Sneddon and Son are proud to offer for sale this immaculately presented Victorian detached villa situated in the highly desirable Morningside district of Edinburgh. The property has recently undergone extensive restoration and improvements to create a modern, comfortable and functional home while still retaining many original period features including fireplaces, sash and case windows, ornate corniced ceilings, centre roses and picture rails. The balustrades, shutters, doors and skirting boards have also been carefully restored to their former glory. The property has been fully rewired and completely replumbed with a new gas central heating system serving the entire house. The kitchen, bathrooms and shower rooms have all been fully modernised. Beneficial upgrades to the property include Cat5 (network) cabling in many rooms, security alarm system and partial double glazing.

To the front of the property is extensive off-street parking for several cars plus a lawned front garden.
