Full description

Characterised by breathtaking internal proportions, spectacular natural light and a wealth of flexible accommodation over two levels, this four-bedroom double upper villa represents a rare opportunity to acquire a unique family home in desirable Bruntsfield. Every inch of the sprawling Victorian property has been sympathetically restored and refurbished to an exacting standard, culminating in a discerning blend of priceless period features and contemporary interior design.

Lined with grand villas and stone-built tenements, Merchiston Place is a tranquil residential street, yet is just minutes' walk from bustling Bruntsfield Place. Storm doors allow access to a shared entrance vestibule with a secure main door and an internal staircase to the first floor. A second secure door opens into the stunning hall, where soaring ceilings framed by cornicing and a beautiful sweeping staircase instantly convey the calibre of the accommodation to follow.

In the southeast-facing living room, spectacular sash-and-case windows with working shutters bathe the space in natural light and yield leafy street views. Finished in a classic palette of dove grey and white, the vast room is zoned into an elegant sitting area with an exquisite marble fireplace, and a smaller drawing room for reading or formal dining.

Across the hall, the dining kitchen is the epitome of stylish yet functional kitchen design. A single length of rich timber base cabinets topped with luxurious white Silestone provide streamlined storage and workspace, whilst accommodating an integrated dishwasher, an undermount sink (also Silestone) and a gleaming Smeg dual-fuel range cooker with six gas burners, a fan oven/grill and a conventional oven. Floating wall shelves and a shelved alcove provide attractive open storage, and are supplemented with additional fitted wall cabinets in the versatile dining area.

This floor further accommodates two double bedrooms (including a large master bedroom with a chic en-suite shower room) and the immaculate three-piece family bathroom.

The striking oak and wrought-iron staircase sweeps up to the second floor landing, which is flooded with light from a magnificent cupola. On this level are two delightful double bedrooms, a compact two-piece WC, and a practical utility room equipped with a washing machine, a tumble dryer and ample built-in storage. The property benefits from gas central heating and predominantly original sash-and-case windows throughout.

Externally the property boasts a tandem driveway and a single garage with lighting, water and power sockets. A rear door in the garage allows secure access to the private, west-facing rear garden, which is fully enclosed and comprises a neat lawn, two patio areas and a selection of mature shrubs. Residents' permit parking (Zone S3) is also available on Merchiston Place.
