Colourful charm in Edinburgh cul-de-sac
Boasting a bright and colourful pink exterior, spacious rooms and a prime location in a peaceful cul-de-sac, 5 Glenisla Gardens is a rare and unique property in a desirable area of the capital.
The impressive house has recently been elegantly decorated and showcases beautiful details and features, including stripped back Victorian cornicing, original floorboards and a handsome wooden staircase.
One particular highlight of the property is the sitting room – located on the ground floor, the beautiful bay window ensures the room is filled with natural light and offers beautiful views over the gardens and beyond. Featuring cornicing detail throughout, a simple but elegant fireplace acts as the centrepiece, and there is an abundance of space for furniture – it is a perfect room for entertaining guests.
The kitchen, featuring an original larder, is a warm and welcoming room, with large windows making it appear bright and airy, while the wooden units and floorboards provide a more traditional feel. The kitchen is well-proportioned, offering plenty of storage units and worktop space, and provides enough room for a small breakfasting table in the centre. A lovely dining room completes the ground floor accommodation, complete with cornicing detail and providing ample space for a large table and several chairs.
Upstairs, the three double bedrooms of the property are all excellently proportioned, with the master bedroom, in particular, enjoying plenty of space for additional furniture and storage. The master bedroom also features two windows, ensuring the room is bright and offers views over the gardens. Another of the bedrooms also offers south-facing views, while the other looks onto the street. A family bathroom, complete with elegant tiling, completes the first-floor accommodation. This level also provides access to a floored attic.
On the garden level, the terraced house features a lovely family room, which boasts plenty of space and a bay window looking out into the garden. The property also benefits from a large sauna, located on this level, perfect for relaxing on cold winter evenings. A shower room and workshops offering storage space complete this level.
The large and mature garden is another highlight of this property. South-facing, it features ponds, a greenhouse and a terrace, providing an ideal place to while away sunny afternoons. Leafy green plants and trees provide a sense of ruralness to this home in the city.
About the area
Glenisla Gardens is a peaceful cul-de-sac known as one of Edinburgh’s hidden secrets, located in the highly desirable Grange suburb of Edinburgh.
