Full description


Situated on a tranquil crescent where properties rarely come to the market, this magnificent 1930s lower villa offers spacious accommodation, delightful gardens, and an outstanding opportunity to create a modern family home in an exclusive area of Edinburgh. The three/four-bedroom home brims with original period features, including windows, doors, fire surrounds, cornicing and attractive wood panelling.
Set behind a stone wall and gated front garden, a footpath leads to the traditional front door, which opens into a tiled vestibule. The vestibule gives access to a magnificent reception hall, boasting splendid period features and offering the first glimpse of the spacious accommodation to follow. Situated at the front of the property, with lovely garden views from its large bay window, is the living room. This large, formal reception room is arranged around a fireplace with an original surround and gas fire inset, creating a cosy atmosphere during the colder months. On the opposite side of the hallway is another spacious reception room with no fewer than four windows offering leafy garden views. Currently the dining room, this room could easily be used as a fourth bedroom; it also enjoys a focal fireplace and a built-in cupboard. Next door is a lovingly maintained but slightly dated fitted kitchen. In some need of refurbishment, this room offers a generous footprint with lovely garden views from double-aspect windows. Boasting outstanding built-in storage plus a pantry cupboard, the kitchen is fitted with ample wall and base units, good worktop space and integrated appliances, including an electric oven, gas hob, concealed extractor hood and a dishwasher. It also offers ample dining space. A rear hall gives access to the delightful private garden and a large walk-in storage cupboard. The villa has three generous double bedrooms, each with leafy garden views. A well-maintained but dated bathroom, fitted with a three-piece-suite, completes the internal accommodation. Gas central heating has been installed throughout the property.
Externally, this lovely period home enjoys delightful private gardens to the front and rear. Ample on-street parking is available on Meggetland Terrace. Extras: TBC with Client
