Modern luxury in Craiglockhart
This unique detached house is in a secluded setting in Glenlockhart Valley, a desirable spot in Craiglockhart.
The beautifully-designed property offers spacious, stylish and flexible family accommodation with high quality fixtures and fittings, and where light and open space make a huge impact on the design. The home itself lives up to its name, being surrounded by trees to really convey a sense of privacy.
Some of the great features include a double height drawing room with balcony, a galleried dining room and a breakfasting kitchen with roof terrace, while the many exposed beams and vaulted ceiling act as a stunning design detail.
The home is approached by a private driveway with a parking area for several vehicles, and the entrance vestibule leads into an impressive hallway. To the back of this ground floor is a double bedroom with en suite shower room and a gym with cupboard and a WC beside it. To the front is a study, and a further double bedroom with en suite shower room. Leading down a half flight of stairs you reach the sitting room, a double bedroom and a utility room.
From the ground floor, the stairs lead up to a half-landing where you will find the master bedroom which impressively comes with a balcony, walk-in dressing room and a large en suite bathroom. Continuing to the first floor, the superb drawing room looks over the garden and has a large balcony, extensive glazing and a double-height ceiling. There are two further double bedrooms on this level along with a family bathroom. This level also allows access to a second spiral staircase and vestibule which connects the two upper levels. A further half flight of stairs accesses a breakfasting kitchen with roof terrace that offers amazing castle views. This room is full of light, with its glass double doors, Velux window and high arched ceiling.
You then continue up to a stunning galleried dining room with exposed fir beams and a further seating area with open views to Edinburgh Castle.
