It is a magnificent private home with many original features and has unrivalled views over the west of Edinburgh and the Pentland hills. It has a gated driveway with ample parking, a large mature colourful back garden and two garages. Ideally situated for easy access to Edinburgh airport and some of Edinburgh’s best private schools with Corstorphine Nature Reserve nearby.

The front door opens to the original tiled entrance vestibule which leads to the reception hall, from where the three principal reception rooms radiate along with the main family living space and cloakroom. The elegant drawing room has a large bay window overlooking the front and, together with the side window, allows a lot of natural light into the room. It has a period fireplace with gas fire, together with traditional picture rail, ceiling rose, press cupboard and original stripped timber floor. The sitting/dining room overlooks the front and has the original ceiling rose, traditional picture rail, press cupboard and original stripped timber floor. The third reception room has a corner bay window with window seats, period fireplace with gas fire, traditional picture rail and press cupboard. This room has been used as a playroom, study and music room. The spacious kitchen / dining / family room leads onto the patio and the well manicured garden with large lawn. The utility room is off the kitchen and contains a large store cupboard. The cloakroom is located off the reception hall.

To the rear is a large private mature colourful garden with a large lawn surrounded by well-stocked borders with a variety of shrubs, plants and trees providing colour for much of the year.
