** FABULOUS 6BED DETACHED PERIOD FAMILY HOME (eminent Scottish architect John Kinross) - GRANGE ** With outstanding views across to Blackford Hill, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent, detached property of huge architectural significance situated on an extensive corner site in the Grange Conservation Area, one of the city's most desirable residential addresses. Spread over four levels with six bedrooms, the Category A-listed house was designed in a 17th century Scottish architectural style by the eminent Scottish architect John Kinross. President of the Edinburgh Architectural Society, Kinross built three other similar-styled neighbouring properties in the late 1890s; one of which he kept as his family home. The exceptional family house is set within an enchanting south-facing garden of almost an acre with a large expanse of lawn and several seating areas surrounded by mature trees and floral planting created by a noted gardener who lived at the property for many decades before the present owners. Boasting a wealth of period features including original fireplaces, cast-iron radiators, sash and case windows, a servant call bell system, Italian marble and oak-wood flooring, the handsome property also benefits from some of Kinross' bespoke design features such as the thistle motif that appears in the ceiling plasterwork and decorative cornicing throughout the house. Creating the feeling of a large country house, the spacious flexible entertaining and family spaces are enhanced by close proximity to local amenities in the bustling affluent Morningside and cosmopolitan Bruntsfield in city's Southside. Located just two miles from the city centre, the property is also situated near to several excellent schools and leafy parks.
