Property Description

Full description

This exceptional, 6 bedroom detached villa of circa 4,900sq.ft with heated indoor swimming pool is situated in just under an acre of secluded landscaped garden grounds beside the Water of Leith.

The house, which is approached by a short private tarmacadam lane is a beautiful and charming home full of character, secretly tucked away in an almost rural setting, yet in reality only three miles from the city centre. Built in the 1980s this delightful 6 bedroom villa provides exceptionally spacious and comfortable family accommodation on two floors and offers a tranquillity rarely offered to city dwellers.

The property also benefits from a large indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, a recently constructed double garage with an office room above and ample private parking for 6 - 8 cars.

The generous and attractively presented accommodation, which has been greatly enhanced over recent years, flows naturally from room to room and is laid out over two floors. The house is entered via a vestibule leading to a welcoming reception hall with the main staircase leading to the first floor. On the ground floor there is a spacious sitting room with dual aspects over the garden, an open stone mantel fireplace and a set of French sliding glass doors leading to a south facing paved patio area with a large greenhouse. The TV room is entered via glazed double doors from the hallway and has two recessed shelved cupboards and windows looking directly into the swimming pool complex. To one end of the house is a bright and spacious dining kitchen with integrated Neff appliances, Zodiac quartz work tops, Karndean floor and solid oak kitchen units. The utility room leading off the kitchen is fitted with matching additional units, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, twin central heating boilers and the main consumer electricity board. Access from this room leads to the courtyard, garden and garage. There is a study with generous shelving and a sliding glass door leading into the swimming pool. The extensive ground floor accommodation also contains the master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, a separate shower room with toilet and a further single bedroom.

Carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor landing with three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The first floor also benefits from an additional guest bedroom suite with a Velux window and a west facing window with views to the surrounding gardens, a bathroom and separate shower cubicle. There is also substantial floored loft and under eave storage space.

The 9m x 4.5m swimming pool complex is an exceptional addition to this wonderful property and is very much an integral part of the overall accommodation. The pool complex includes changing rooms with heated towel rails, shower, WC, a sauna of Aspen timber and a plant room for the pool.

Beside the parking area is a more recently constructed detached double garage with automated roller doors. To the back of the garage is a stair leading up to a large studio room which has the added potential to be an office fitted with CAT5 computer wiring and a floor area of 36sq.m.

The house boasts an interesting and extensive garden of just under an acre with patio, an inner courtyard, sweeping lawns bounded with mature trees, shrubs and flower borders. There is also a pond, log store and a large lean-to greenhouse with power and water. Just beyond the private garden is an area specifically designated by the Water of Leith Trust as a wild flower meadow.

The house is connected to all standard services and is provided with a gas fired central heating system, double glazing and a security alarm system.
