The immaculately presented accommodation, which is accessed through the central pillared entrance, comprises on the lower level - hall with understair cloak cupboard; elegant bow fronted sitting room offering fantastic views to Craiglockhart Hill and the Ochil Hills in the distance; modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances and quartz work surfaces; generously proportioned dining room/double bedroom 4 with views to The Pentland Hills; and study with built-in storage and desk. A carpeted staircase leads to the upper level - landing with storage cupboard; master bedroom with extensive fitted wardrobe; ensuite shower room; double bedroom 2 with views; double bedroom 3 (currently used as a tv room); and contemporary bathroom with spa bath. There is also extensive eaves storage accessible from the upper landing, master bedroom, double bedroom 3 and bathroom.

Location

Situated a few miles south of the city centre, Fairmilehead is a peaceful, popular residential area. Its proximity to the city bypass makes it ideal for the commuter with easy access to the M8, M9, Edinburgh International Airport, Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, University of Edinburgh, The Forth Road Bridge, Fife and beyond. There is also a regular bus service to and from the city centre. Fairmilehead is well served for both Primary and Secondary schools with Pentland Primary School and Firrhill Secondary School within a short walk. There are good local shops, a bank and a post office nearby. There is also a large Morrisons superstore close by and a Tesco supermarket at Oxgangs. Excellent recreational opportunities in the area include several golf courses, Fairmilehead Park, lovely walks at Braidburn Park, the Braid Hills, Hermitage of Braid Walkway, Blackford Hill and the Pentland Hills. The dry-ski slope at Hillend is also minutes away.

Garden

Comiston House is surrounded by beautifully maintained landscaped grounds which extend to approximately 2 acres. The flat has a private area of garden in the north west corner, adjacent to the private area for flat 64/2. Previous owners of these adjoining garden areas built a large shared patio which enjoys the sunshine for the majority of the day. There is also a drying area. The impressive Austrian pine tree in the front garden has been nominated as one of Scotland's top 100 heritage trees by the Forestry Commission. It is thought to be one of the first of its type planted in the UK and is at least 175 years old.
