Wonderful detached Arts and Crafts house in a much sought after area

Location

Succoth Avenue is set in the much sought after suburb of Murrayfield. This area is within walking distance of the city centre and Haymarket Station and is particularly popular with families being superbly positioned for schools including St George's, Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools and Fettes College. There are excellent amenities close by including the Murrayfield ice rink, picturesque walks along the Water of Leith and a good range of local shops within easy walking distance in Roseburn. There is also convenient road access to the west connecting to Corstorphine, Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh Airport and the Central Scotland motorway network.

Description

10 Succoth Avenue is a wonderful detached family home dating from 1914 which has been in the current ownership since 1932. The property has many delightful features typical of the Arts and Crafts period, including an ornate floor to ceiling mirror in the drawing room, decorative plasterwork and wood carving as well as the cabinetry in the Billiard Room which is thought to have been designed and made by Clow Brothers who worked closely with Sir Robert Lorimer. The house offers spacious, comfortable and light, yet highly flexible, family accommodation set over two principal floors, including a self contained flat at first floor level.There are aspects to the north, south, east and west allowing for plenty of natural light. While the accommodation presents well it would now benefit from modernising throughout and it is likely that an incoming purchaser would wish to reconfigure to cater for modern family living, subject to the necessary consents.

The house sits in a double feu with a long driveway to the north side giving access to a large parking area, formerly the drying green, and a double garage. Here is also the back garden, with a variety of productive fruit trees. To the south elevation, there is a beautifully maintained mature garden with a large central lawn surrounded by a range of mature plants, shrubs and trees providing colour throughout the year. The house sits back from the road and is approached by a gated stone path with a further front garden which is easily maintained.

In addition there is access over the wall to the rear of the property to the shared communal garden.

Fixtures & Fittings
All fitted floor coverings, light fittings, white goods and curtains, with the exception of the set in the Billiard Room, are included in the sale.
