Property description

Located in the Blacket Conservation Area, this is a particularly attractive house that has been beautifully decorated by the current owners. The result is an architectural gem that also has elegant and contemporary interiors and an exceptional garden.

The house is configured over three floors, with a good balance of accommodation. The entrance vestibule immediately sets the tone and gives a strong first impression as to the attention to detail and the level of the interiors. The elegant hall leads to the primary living space with a sitting room to the front of the house and an open plan kitchen/dining room to the rear. The sitting room is a large, bright entertaining space with two beautiful windows and a wood burner. The kitchen is of a smart contemporary design with an Aga range and high quality fixtures and fitting including Miele machines. With a breakfast bar and a dining area, this is the ideal space both for family life and entertaining. From the kitchen, there is access to the utility room and on to the garden.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom is a generous size with a peaceful outlook to the garden and a large en suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom to the rear of the house as well as a study to the front which has useful fitted cupboards and shelves. The stunning drawing room is flooded with natural light due to the southerly aspect and the elevated position gives lovely views down the street. The room works perfectly for entertaining and has been beautifully decorated. If needed, the room could be used as a large double bedroom.

On the garden level, there are two further double bedrooms, one with a dressing room and a door to the garden. In addition, there is a wine cellar, a shower room and a separate WC.

Outside, there is a truly exceptional garden. Surrounding the large lawn are carefully planted borders providing interest and colour throughout the summer. Stone walkways lead you through different zones of the garden and on to the large patio area for outside dining. There are mature trees and shrubs as well as perennials making this a particularly pretty garden and a tranquil contrast to city life.

There is access to the garage/store from the garden as well as the driveway. The drive provides off street parking and there is residents parking available in addition.

This is a fabulous family home, not just in terms of
the house itself but with the combined appeal of the garden and parking, it really does tick all the boxes.


Blacket Place is located next to Newington, a vibrant residential area two miles south of the city centre within easy reach of Edinburgh financial, business and shopping districts with the East End of Princes Street a mere twenty minutes' walk away.
