Charm and character in Liberton
With a beautiful selection of fine period features, including panelled doors, original coving, fireplaces, stained glass windows and a timber balustrade, this three bedroom semi-detached villa boasts plenty of charm and character. Now in need of modernisation, the property offers tremendous potential to be transformed into a beautiful family home in a highly desirable area.
In an enviable elevated position set back from the road, the home offers splendid open views to the front towards Arthur’s Seat, Salisbury Crags and over to Fife. To the back, there is an equally pleasant outlook over the established private gardens.
A vestibule and hallway welcome you to the property. The spacious lounge sits to the front of the property, flooded with natural light thanks to a lovely bay window. The kitchen is positioned to the rear of the property, benefiting from direct access to the garden, and the sizeable dining room is adjacent.
The layout of the ground floor with the kitchen, dining room and lounge close together, makes it an excellent property for entertaining guests.
All three bedrooms are located on the first floor. Bedrooms one and two boast plenty of space and fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom is well-proportioned and could be used as a study or playroom. There is also a family bathroom on this level.
Attic and cellar
The property also benefits from a large floored attic on the top floor, perfect for storage. It also could be extended into, subject to the necessary planning permissions. 102 Liberton Brae also has a single garage and a cellar.
The fully-enclosed back garden is one of the highlights of the property. It features a lovely summerhouse and offers views over the south-facing garden and its range of pretty plants. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, the property could be extended into the garden to provide additional interior space.
Positioned to the south of Edinburgh’s city centre, Liberton is a highly popular district in the capital and well-placed for a number of local amenities, including a bank, grocer, bakery, convenience store and post office, which are all within easy walking distance.
Cameron Toll Shopping Centre and Straiton Retail Park are just a short drive away by car and offer a wide range of larger shops, including Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s.
For families, there are well-regarded schools within the local area, including Liberton Primary, St Catherine’s R C Primary, Liberton High and Holyrood R C High School. A number of Edinburgh’s private schools are also close by, including George Heriots and George Watson’s College.
Liberton is well placed for ease of access to Edinburgh’s city by-pass which provides highly effective routes to both East and West Lothian, Edinburgh Airport, the Queensferry Crossing and the main motorway network.
