A beautiful upper villa in Morningside
Forming part of a traditional Victorian villa in the highly desirable area of Morningside, this four bedroom flat offers bright and spacious interiors along with stunning traditional features, including exquisite cornicing and sash-and-case windows. It presents a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful family home, which has expertly blended the traditional with the contemporary, in this hugely popular district of Edinburgh.
Set back from the road, the property instantly captures attention with an impressive stone exterior and wide bay windows. Upon entering through the front door, there is a private entrance vestibule which still features its original tiled floor and is equipped with generous built-in storage. The staircase lies behind the vestibule’s glazed door, which leads up to the first floor hall. The hall features a stunning oak staircase leading up to a magnificent cupola which floods the hall with natural light.
The vast dining kitchen stretches across the entire width of the property and the windows offers lovely views. It features minimalist handleless cabinetry with solid Carrera marble worktops and a double Belfast sink, which is equipped with an instant boiling-water tap. A fantastic dual-fuel range cooker, with seven gas burners, two ovens and a separate grill acts as the centrepiece of the room. The kitchen also has a number of Neff integrated appliances and plenty of space for freestanding appliances. The room also features ample space for bar seating and a large dining table.
Positioned to the front of the property, the living room is filled with natural light thanks to a beautiful bay window to the southwest and a side window to the southeast. The room is generously proportioned offering ample space for furniture and features a lovely traditional fireplace – it’s an ideal spot to socialise as a family in the evenings.
The lower level features ones of the four double bedrooms, which could also be used as a study. The rest of the double bedrooms are on the upper floor, one of which benefits from a bespoke Sharps fitted wardrobe and a matching desk. This level also features a designer four-piece bathroom with a walk-in shower and a sculptural freestanding bath as well as a separate shower room.
Morningside is regarded as one of the most sought-after districts in Edinburgh, situated approximately three miles south of the city centre, with excellent bus links to Princes Street and to other parts of the city. The area is known for its wonderful independent shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also home to the independent Dominion Cinema, which is perfect for film buffs. In terms of supermarkets, there is a Waitrose as well as a Marks and Spencer’s food store. For families, the schools in the area are highly regarded from nursery to secondary level, and private schools George Watson’s College and Edinburgh Steiner School are easily accessible.
