Morningside is one of Edinburgh’s most desirable areas, and this terraced Victorian villa is a grand example of what makes it so popular.

This spacious and well-presented family home offers flexible accommodation over three floors.  There is an attractive porch and entrance hallway which also features two large cupboards and a shower room, and leads to the living room and through to the dining room and kitchen at the back of the house.

The grand living room has retained its Victorian features, including an ornate mantelpiece and detailed cornicing, while its lovely bay window looks out over the front garden. For a less formal place to relax and unwind, the family room offers a quiet retreat.

The dining room has plenty of space for a large dining table, with a deep set cove where you can keep your bottles of wine.  This room leads through to the modern kitchen which is fully fitted with a selection of floor and wall mounted units, gas hob, electric oven and integrated dishwasher.

Going upstairs to the first floor, the light and bright landing has a gorgeous cupola allowing light to flood into the hallway and stairs. On this floor, you will find four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom, at the front of the house, has a bay window which allows lots of light to flood into the room, and it is complimented with intricate cornicing.

Downstairs from the ground floor is the lower level, which offers one further bedroom, an adjoining study and handy storage rooms. The utility area provides access to a fully enclosed and well maintained rear garden with a nice patio area which leads out to a lawn.

The property is kept warm from gas central heating while its neutral décor allows the home to be in move-in condition.

Morningside is one of the popular residential areas within Edinburgh, which is known for its leafy streets, its relaxed cafes and bars, a Waitrose and a Marks and Spencer Food store, the Dominion cinema and the Church Hill Theatre. There are some very fine schools in both the private and public sectors including George Watsons College, Boroughmuir High School, South Morningside Primary and also Edinburgh and Napier Universities. Excellent public transport provides services to other parts of Edinburgh and the city centre. Morningside has access to a wide number of recreational facilities such as walks along the Hermitage of Braids, Braidburn Valley and Blackford Hill and excellent local golf courses.
