Property Description

Full description

HOME REPORT VALUATION £1,000,000 / Energy efficiency rating - D

This gracious and generously proportioned Victorian stone built villa with Coach House is set within approximately half an acre of delightful walled and landscaped gardens including lawns, mature trees, shrubs, gravelled terrace and pond. The property is full of natural light and has been extensively upgraded and redecorated to a truly exceptional standard within the last 5 years.

Entered via electric gates and a sweeping gravelled drive, the property has been most intelligently positioned with the principal frontage facing south, to the rear of Park Road, allowing the stunning principal rooms to benefit from a sunny southerly aspect and garden views.

Of particular note is the multitude of fine period features including fireplaces, cornices, woodwork, parquet, inlaid marquetry , enhanced by many fine pieces of custom made storage furniture.

On the ground floor the kitchen has been most beautifully fitted by Clive Christian with solid marble worktops and a full complement of quality appliances. This opens to a delightful formal dining room with antique Adam fireplace. A very large utility room is conveniently situated next door.

On the first floor is a magnificent suite comprising master bedroom with en-suite shower room and a large fully fitted dressing room. There are three further bedrooms (two interconnecting), all accessible from the landing. Also on this level is an impressive contemporary bathroom with free standing ‘Egg’ bath.

On the second floor are two good sized double bedrooms, also interconnecting, affording wonderful open views to the Moorfoot Hills with a second bathroom immediately adjacent.

All fitted carpets are included in the sale and the lined and interlined curtains are available to purchase by separate negotiation. Efficient gas central heating, installed about 5 years ago, provides year round comfort.

Full Planning Permission has been granted for the erection of a good sized Orangery and for the near doubling in size of the Coach House which (subject to permissions) could be altered to form a granny or staff annexe.

Eskbank is situated approximately 7 miles south of Edinburgh City Centre. It is a well established and leafy community of Victorian stone properties enjoying an enviable quality of environment. There is a wide choice of local shopping in nearby Dalkeith including a Lidl supermarket with a Tesco supermarket approximately 1 mile to the west off Bonnyrigg Road.

Within walking distance is the Justinlees Inn, which serves food and there is a choice of restaurants in Dalkeith complemented by Gerry Goldwyre’s private dining at the Water Tower. The property adjoins a public park with children’s commando course at the east end of Dalkeith. Golf is available at Bonnyrigg and Lasswade and there are opportunities for walking, jogging and cycling in the extensive surrounding protected countryside.

Several of Edinburgh prestigious private sector schools run private bus services from Eskbank and Loretto School at Musselburgh is within easy reach.

There are regular public transport services to and from the City Centre serving many parts of Lothian and beyond. Road access is straightforward and there is a rapid link to the Sheriffhall Roundabout which, in turn, takes you further on to the A1, A68 and A7, the City Bypass, the Airport and the Central Scottish Motorway Network.
