Tenure: Freehold

Bridge End House is a wonderful family house with well-balanced accommodation and up to six bedrooms. The property is located in the heart of Colinton but in a discreet and private setting within large garden grounds. It also benefits from a spacious garage on Bridge Road. EPC Rating: E.

The house is approached via a private path with intricate iron railings designed by Phoebe Anna Traquair, who was an important contributor to the British Arts and Crafts Movement. The entrance hall leads to all of the main living accommodation, including the dining room which goes through to the large sitting room with its bay window and access to the garden. Also on the ground floor is the study which could work well as a second sitting room or alternatively a ground floor bedroom. To the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room which leads in turn to the back door and store rooms. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor are a shower room, utility room/scullery and boiler/cloakroom.

The master bedroom is found to the front of the first floor and is a wonderful size. There is a large double bedroom which the current owners use as the family/play room. Three further bedrooms can be found on this floor. One currently serves as a studio and benefits from double doors leading to a lovely south-west facing balcony. To the rear of the house is the family bathroom and the music room which could function as another double bedroom if desired.

Outside there is a large and beautifully landscaped garden on different terraces. The garden is surrounded by mature trees, giving the property a wonderful sense of privacy. The sale includes a double garage, with additional parking space on its forecourt. In addition, there is ample free on-street parking nearby.


Over the years, Colinton Village, set alongside the banks of the Water of Leith, has become one of Edinburgh's most popular and exclusive suburbs. The property is situated just a few miles to the south-west of the city centre and is a short distance from excellent local amenities and extensive transport links. Colinton retains its village ambience yet benefits from an excellent range of local shopping facilities, services and first class schools in the area.

Recreational facilities include several golf courses in the vicinity, the dry ski slope at Hillend and tennis courts in Craiglockhart and Colinton village. There are a variety of rural walks nearby, and the delightful Spylaw Park and Colinton Dell can be accessed directly from the property. The location is also ideal for providing easy access to the City By-Pass and Edinburgh Airport.
