Full description

19 Lygon Road is an impressive 5-bedroom stone-built Victorian semi-detached villa with a private front and rear garden. The property has a wealth of period features throughout including fireplaces, bay windows, ornate cornice work, wooden flooring and the cupola which lights up the stairwell. Of particular note are the reception rooms on the ground floor which include a fantastic drawing room, study/library, dining room and the wonderful conservatory with its grape vines. Upstairs, there are 4 well-proportioned double bedrooms, a study/bedroom 5 and a bathroom. There is a staircase leading up to the second floor which is currently utilised as storage. With the correct planning, this could be converted to 2 further rooms. Outside, the property also benefits from a lovely garden with a number of different trees and off street parking for two cars.

Lying to the south of the city centre, Lygon Road is a quiet street that enjoys an enviable location in the heart of one of Edinburgh's most desirable residential areas. The area is characterised by fine stone-built houses and is popular with families due to the excellent local amenities, including doctor and dentist surgeries, banks, delicatessens and a selection of well-regarded restaurants. The city centre is only a short journey away by bus, car or foot and offers an extensive range of cultural activities as would be expected from Scotland's capital. Cameron Toll shopping centre is easily accessed where a range of retail outlets can be found including a Sainsbury's supermarket. For the outdoor enthusiast, The Meadows, Holyrood Park, The Pentland Hills, and Hillend dry ski slope are all within a short distance, as are a variety of golf courses and Waverley Lawn Tennis & Squash Club. Also nearby is the Commonwealth swimming pool which has a children's play centre and a gymnasium. The property lies within easy reach of the city bypass allowing quick access to Edinburgh airport and the central Scotland motorway network. Local schooling is excellent, falling within the catchment area of Sciennes Primary and James Gillespie's High School. Many of Edinburgh's renowned private schools are also within easy reach, including George Watson's College, George Heriot's School and Merchiston Castle School.
