Full description

Closing Date - Monday 19th September at 12 noon. This lower villa forms part of a detached Victorian house. The excellent accommodation, beautiful garden and off street parking all combine to make this a very attractive proposition suitable for professionals, families and downsizers alike. EPC:F.

Approached through an attractive front garden, this main door lower villa enters into a welcoming vestibule and hallway. The spacious sitting room provides an excellent entertaining space overlooking the front garden, with a large bay window which could accommodate a dining table if required. The sitting room boasts a range of traditional features including original wooden flooring, beautiful cornice work and an attractive fireplace. Opposite, there is a good sized double bedroom with working shutters. There are two further double bedrooms, including the master bedroom which has been converted by the current owners to provide an en suite shower room. The master bedroom also benefits from working shutters. The charming kitchen/dining room creates a wonderful hub to the property and receives excellent natural light due to its southerly orientation, with direct access to and a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. The accommodation is completed by a family bathroom and a utility room. A back door leads to the side patio.

In addition to the front lawn, there is a private, walled rear garden with mature borders, which can be accessed directly from the property. As the upper flat is owned by another member of the family, there is no fixed garden border currently in place. The property benefits from gated access to the communal gardens of Waverley Park. There is also a single garage, additional off street parking and a garden store.


Cobden Crescent is formed on the edge of Waverley Park, a small residential enclave of the late Victorian period. Originally designed by David Cousins, Edinburgh's first city architect, the development consists of just over 130 stone-built houses constructed around the focal point of a large communal garden. Cobden Crescent lies in a tranquil residential setting just to the south of Edinburgh's bustling city centre. The area has a vibrant and prosperous community with handsome houses and a wide variety of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities nearby. Within easy reach are several golf courses, tennis clubs and the Royal Commonwealth Pool. In addition there are plenty of walking opportunities in the Pentland Hills, Holyrood Park, Blackford Hill and the Hermitage of Braid. There is easy access to the City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and Scotland's motorway network. The property is within the catchment area for Preston Street Primary School and James Gillespie's High School.
