Property Description

38 Greenhill Gardens is a magnificent and substantial detached Victorian villa which has undergone significant renovation in recent years and is immaculately presented throughout. With all round aspects, but principally to the east and west, there is an abundance of natural light throughout the day, and much of its original charm has been successfully re-instated by the former owner, who replaced features such as the extensive plasterwork, mantelpieces and stripped timber floors. The windows are double glazed throughout yet have been kept in their original style, creating an efficient and warm house yet keeping true to its original style.

The front door opens to the entrance vestibule which leads to the reception hall, from where the principal reception rooms radiate, as well as the main family living space. The elegant dining room has a west facing square bay, as well as detailed cornicing, impressive timber mantelpiece with gas fire, dado rail, stripped timber floors and two entrances. Adjacent to here is the spectacular and generously proportioned drawing room, which is a particularly fine west facing room with a glorious bay window overlooking the front garden. It again has many delightful features including wonderful plasterwork and a striking white marble mantelpiece with gas fire. The beautifully appointed kitchen was hand built using the finest oak, and is practically laid out with generous storage and worktop space. There is a gas-fired AGA in addition. The family sitting room is situated towards the rear of the house and is a wonderfully comfortable room with a door opening to the rear terrace and garden beyond. The home office is located off the family room and is a spacious room, giving a sense of privacy and seclusion from the main part of the house. There is also a self-contained bedroom and shower room to the north side of the house, ideal for an elderly relative or live-in nanny. In addition, there is also a large utility room and excellent storage throughout the ground floor, as well as access to the two integral single garages to the rear of the house.

The impressive original stair rises to the upper floor, where there is a half-landing with access to a self-contained suite, with generous double bedroom, a further sitting room and a WC. The stair continues to the upper landing where the five remaining bedrooms are accessed. The principal bedroom is generous in proportion and well positioned to benefit from the morning light. There is a well-appointed and fully fitted dressing room as well as a luxurious en suite bath and shower room. There is a charming balcony also, which is a wonderful place to sit in the morning sun. There are two further double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, while the two additional bedrooms are served by the excellent family bathroom with twin baths.

The house is incredibly private with a variety of mature trees providing superb screening. It sits back on its site, with an easily maintained front garden giving lots of colour to the front. A gated paviored driveway has a turning circle and parking to the front, with a further gate access to the rear of the property, with access to the two integral garages, as well as the detached triple garage with a games room above. There is extensive parking here also. The garden is mature, colourful and private, with a generous lawn surrounded by well-stocked borders with a variety of shrubs, plants and trees providing colour for much of the year.

Greenhill Gardens is a highly desirable residential street characterised by fine detached Victorian villas, located approximately 1.5 miles from the city centre. There is an excellent choice of local specialist shops, bars, restaurants and cultural facilities nearby in Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Morningside.

The area is a highly sought after location for families and professionals being in close proximity to Edinburgh University, the financial district and many of the city's independent schools including George Watson's College, George Heriot's, and Merchiston Castle School on the south side of the city.
Local recreation facilities include The Commonwealth swimming pool, The Dominion cinema and theatres.
The open spaces of Bruntsfield Links, the Meadows and Blackford Hill are all under a mile away, while The Braid Hills and the Pentlands are within a couple of miles.
