Description

Meticulously restored and fully modernised family home presented in immaculate order throughout, and occupying enchanting private grounds of about 1.25 acres

Description

Corners is a meticulously restored and fully modernised family home occupying a wonderfully private and secluded position on a private lane off Barnton Avenue. The finish throughout the house represents the very best quality and specification, completed to a standard rarely seen in Edinburgh. The current owners have lovingly created a home that caters perfectly for modern family living, with superb lateral living space throughout the ground floor with an exquisite open plan kitchen, dining and living room creating a centrepiece for living and entertaining. Set over two floors, the property offers generously proportioned accommodation with fabulous aspects all around creating a wonderful sense of light with delightful views over the exceptionally private and mature grounds.

The front door opens to a welcoming reception hall, from where the principal living accommodation radiates and double doors open to the kitchen. There is a spectacularly light outlook through the kitchen into the garden, immediately giving a sense of space, brightness and the quality of fixtures and fittings throughout the house. The beautifully appointed kitchen has been hand crafted with solid wood units topped by incredibly rare Brazilian granite work surfaces and incorporating top specification Fisher and Paykel and Bosch integrated appliances. The owners have also installed a full size Everhot range cooker. The breakfast bar provides the perfect space for informal dining as well as for socialising while cooking, and opens to the spectacular south and west facing dining and sitting room with glazed double doors opening from both areas to terracing and the garden beyond. The family room is situated to the front of the house and is an excellent space for a children's playroom or gaming room, and leads through to the study, which could be used as a fifth bedroom if required. To the other side of the hall, there is a private wing with an elegant oak panelled drawing room, as well as the principal bedroom with hand crafted cabinetry and a luxurious en suite bath and shower room finished with Italian marble. The guest bedroom (four) is also located in this wing, and is serviced by a further shower room. Also on the ground floor are the cloak room with bespoke built-in cupboards as well as the bespoke utility room.

The stair rises to the upper floor where the two further bedroom suites are located. These are both equally proportioned and wonderfully bright with delightful views over the grounds. Both are generous in proportion, with comfortably enough space for large double beds, and both benefit from luxurious en suite bathrooms as well as additional rooms off which have been used as playrooms, but could be dressing rooms or have additional beds or desks.

The grounds are delightfully enchanting. Accessed via a shared lane off Barnton Avenue, the privacy afforded by the positioning of the grounds is unrivalled. The house sits neatly and centrally on the site and is accessed via a gravelled driveway providing ample parking and leading to the detached double garage. There are a wide variety of mature trees, as well as well hedging and the boundary is clearly defined by a wall which skirts the perimeter. The office/gym has been recently built and sits behind the garage, and is situated close to the back door of the house. It currently houses gym equipment as well as having enough space for an office and a golf simulator (not included in the sale).

The gardens sweep around the sides of the house to the rear of the property with extensive lawns and with many fine trees interspersed around the grounds. There are a variety of colourful and mature shrubs and plants also, which provide an abundance of colour for much of the year. To the north of the grounds there is a large flat section of lawn, which was formerly a tennis court, which could once again be reinstated subject to the necessary consents.

Planning Permission
The property also benefits from approved planning permission for a further extension should more bedroom and living accommodation be required.

Electrics
The property benefits from 3 phase electricity, allowing for a 22kw EV charger to be installed.
