Property Description

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful B-listed, two-storey plus attic, five-bedroom detached family home set in an elevated generous plot in the popular district of Duddingston, within easy reach of the city centre. The property has been comprehensively and sympathetically renovated by the current owners and offers flexible family accommodation. Recent renovations include new kitchen and bathrooms, rewiring (adding Cat 6 network cabling), replumbing (with Hive remote controlled heating system), external CCTV & PIR lighting - a full list of all improvements can be obtained from the selling agent.

The house sits proudly in an elevated position opposite Duddingston Golf Course and is accessed via a driveway which offers parking for multiple vehicles and set in beautifully landscaped gardens with zoned areas for entertainment, relaxation and al fresco dining. The ground floor accommodation comprises a grand entrance hall leading to the formal dining room and sitting room with bay windows and beautiful plasterwork, a newly fitted luxury custom made kitchen with all modern integrated appliances - a glass sliding door opens out to the west facing Mozolowski & Murray conservatory affording relaxing family and dining space with French door access to a decking area. There is a WC with understairs storage, fully fitted utility room with access to the rear garden, plant room and a guest suite comprising double bedroom with ensuite shower room and walk in wardrobe. This completes the downstairs accommodation.

The first floor comprises the principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom, three further double bedrooms (two of the bedrooms have stunning views to Arthur’s Seat), a study and family bathroom. Stairs lead to a fantastic family space in the attic floor which is currently a ‘snooker room’, flooded with natural light from the Velux windows leaving scope for the incoming buyer to adjust to suit their needs - this room would make a fantastic Cinema Room with bar and seating area.

The popular Duddingston area lies a short distance to the east of the city centre and is surrounded by green space - Holyrood Park, Duddingston Golf Course and Figgate Park are a short walk from the house. The property is well positioned to take advantage of an excellent range of shopping outlets in the vicinity, perhaps the most noteworthy being the nearby Edinburgh Fort Kinnaird shopping and leisure complex, which includes Boots and Marks & Spencer retail outlets. Adjoining Portobello also offers a wealth of local amenities and sporting and recreational facilities, which include a swimming pool and leisure centre. It is also known for its independent shops and cafes as well as its popular beach and promenade.
The property lies close to many private schooling options including George Heriot’s School, Loretto School and George Watson’s College, with Fettes College, The Edinburgh Academy, St George’s School and Merchiston College also within easy reach. Edinburgh University and The Edinburgh Royal Infirmary are also nearby.

It is well placed for the City By-pass allowing convenient access to Edinburgh International Airport, Edinburgh Business Park and connections to all the main routes across Scotland with the M8 to Glasgow, the M90 motorway to the north. The close proximity of the A1 allows easy access to the beaches and golf courses in East Lothian and to the A68 towards the Scottish Borders.
