Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This unique and quirky coach house, built in the 19th Century, is a two bedroom detached stone built home, set in the exclusive Blacket Conservation area. The Coach House is situated next to Blacket House and was originally stabling and additional accommodation for the main house. EPC: D.

The property has been modified over the years and during its current ownership it has been completely refurbished to a high standard. On entering the property, The Coach House has the added attraction of off street parking for two cars, and the front walled courtyard leads to the front door. The entrance hallway provides access through to the living spaces, which have been beautifully renovated. The stylish kitchen leads straight into an open plan dining area with sliding doors to the private walled garden. This is a wonderful open space for entertaining and further benefits from additional storage cupboards and a practically positioned WC. To the end of the extension is a wonderfully bright and charming sitting room, formerly an artist's studio, which also provides direct access out to the courtyard. The ground floor is completed by a good sized double bedroom and a cloakroom under the stairs.

Upstairs, the first floor opens onto a spacious landing with a charming reading area. Off the landing is the family bathroom, which has retained its original art deco Vitrolite tiles. The first floor accommodation is completed by a double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, in addition to two further storage cupboards accessed from the landing.

Outside there is a secluded, private rear courtyard garden which is ideal for entertaining. The single garage to the front, currently used as a storage space, is extremely practical and can also be accessed from the rear courtyard.

Blacket Place is an attractive street in the Newington area on the city's south side, a short distance from the bustling city centre. The property is situated in the peaceful and highly sought after Blacket Conservation area. The location offers easy access to the City Bypass, leading in turn to Edinburgh International Airport and many arterial roads throughout Scotland and to the south. There are excellent local shops, bistros and bars in Newington, Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Morningside. In addition the King's Theatre and Dominion Cinema are within easy reach. Local sporting facilities include a number of golf courses and there are pleasant walks in the open spaces of the nearby Meadows and Blackford Hill. Heriot's School, Merchiston Castle School and George Watson's College are all within easy reach. The property falls within the catchment area for Preston Street Primary School and James Gillespie's High School.
