72 Polwarth Terrace is a substantial stone built detached family house with a distinctive baronial appearance with a crow step gable and turreted towers. The house sits well back from the road and is approached by a pathway and gravelled drive way. Built in 1904 the property retains much of its original period charm with many fine features typical of houses of this era. The present owners have extensively upgraded the property to produce a fine and comfortable family home with the unusual added benefit of direct access to the Union Canal. An arched entrance leads into the welcoming reception hall which has good natural light from the leaded glass windows. To the front of the house there is a pleasant family room and an impressive formal reception room which overlooks the front garden. Overlooking the rear garden is the dining room with French doors which look onto the terrace while next door is a well equipped kitchen with a comprehensive range of built in units and a central island. A doorway connects to the breakfast room off which there is a store room, cloakroom with WC and door to the garden. A fine oak staircase from the reception hall leads to the upper floor with a study at half landing and four bedrooms and a family bathroom off the main landing. The spacious master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room within the turret. A fifth bedroom with an en suite shower room is reached by a staircase from the kitchen.
