A striking villa in Colinton
20 Munro Drive, with its striking 1930s exterior, is approached by a sweeping driveway and offers spacious and well-proportioned accommodation over two floors. Because the property is south facing, all the main rooms in the house have a wonderful aspect over the garden and towards the Pentland Hills.
While this charming family home is in good order, and features beautiful period detail, some general upgrading would be required.
The home has an entrance vestibule and reception hall, which has a grand staircase leading to the upper floor. On the ground floor is the living room, kitchen, dining room and downstairs WC, along with access to the family room, or bedroom five, and to the garage. On the upper floor is four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate shower room.
The broad driveway leads to the two garages and also offers additional parking for several cars. The extensive gardens have been carefully landscaped to create a charming ambiance with established tree lined borders and well stocked shrubberies.
Munro Drive is quietly located in one of Edinburgh’s most sought after residential areas situated to the south west of the city at the foot of the Pentland Hills. Colinton is a thriving community with a broad range of local amenities and activities including a good selection of everyday shops, a health centre, pharmacy, post office, restaurants and churches with further facilities nearby, including Tesco and Morrisons Supermarkets. Colinton has an excellent library which is well used by the local residents. Spylaw Park, Bonaly and the Pentland hills are all within good walking distance and offer many pleasant recreational pursuits for walkers and cyclists. The area has good golf courses and easy access to Hillend Ski-slope. Edinburgh’s city by-pass is situated nearby and provides links to the main motorway network, Edinburgh Airport and East Lothian. There are also excellent local public and private schools within the area at Primary and Secondary level. A regular public transport service operates to and from the city centre and to surrounding areas.
