Full description

Windmill house is an outstanding mansion house built in the Georgian style located in secluded grounds in the heart of Murrayfield on the southern boundary of St Georges School for girls. Built over 4 floors and extending to 9,863 square feet the house retains all the period features and proportions of a grand Georgian mansion house but offers the benefits of modern construction and insulation. The construction commenced on the property in 1997, taking two years to complete traditionally built with raft foundations, concrete flooring and steel reinforcements, double cement insulated outer walls, a single block inner wall, natural stone fascia and then harled.

Internally the house boasts a host of period features including ornate cornice work, ceiling roses, pillars in the hallway, oak parquet flooring in the entrance and working fire places in the principle rooms. The main reception rooms on the ground floor and the four bedrooms on the first floor have dual aspect windows which allows for natural light to flood in to the house throughout the day. The bespoke kitchen/breakfast room benefits form a breakfasting bar as well as patio doors leading out to the south facing terrace that extends 70 feet along the width of the property. The house has both formal and informal reception rooms with a lounge with double doors leading to the impressive drawing room offering formal entertaining space and then a day room next to the kitchen for more informal entertaining.

On the lower ground floor there is a self-contained apartment with its own entrance and direct access to the garden area. This section of the building would be ideal for an au pair or indeed as extended family accommodation if required.

Windmill House is situated in one of the most private locations in Edinburgh while remaining in the heart of Murrayfield, one of the most desirable residential areas of the city. The property is accessed along Murrayfield Place that leads on to Coltbridge Avenue and then Coltbridge Gardens with Windmill House the last property at the end of the drive. The property stands in 1.14 acres of private grounds with a plantation of trees leading down to private riverside access of the Water of Leith. Murrayfield is ideally placed for access to the city's business and financial centres, as well as being convenient for Edinburgh International Airport and Haymarket Railway Station. A number of shops are situated close by in the West End of the city and at Roseburn, with more comprehensive shopping available at the nearby Craigleith Retail Park including a Sainsbury's Supermarket, Marks & Spencer's and Homebase. There are many pleasant walks along The Water of Leith and on Corstorphine Hill, and excellent golf courses are easily accessible including Murrayfield and Ravelston. Most significantly Coltbridge Terrace is close to excellent schools, particularly St George's School for Girls which Windmill House grounds border the school's playing fields, Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools, Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy

Approached via a private driveway the house has a right of access over the driveway shared with the Coach House .A timber fence divides the boundary between the Coach House and Windmill house which allows for ample parking for several vehicles. To the front of the house there is a large private garden predominantly laid to lawn with leylandii hedge borders. The extended grounds cover a large area to the hill leading down to the water of Leith which has been planted with mix trees that make an ideal playground for children. The outstanding views from the upper floors of Windmill House extend to Donaldson's School, Edinburgh Castle and the Pentlands.
