History and character in Colinton
The East Wing of Redford House is a characterful B-listed property, positioned in the highly desirable village of Colinton to the south-west of the city centre. The extensive and versatile property combines a fascinating history with bright and spacious living.
Boasting a barrel vaulted ceiling with Lorimer-style plasterwork forming bands across it, the drawing room is the heart of the home. With excellent proportions, it provides plenty of space for living room and dining furniture. A large bank of south-west facing windows occupy almost the entirety of one wall and flood the room with natural light – the window seats capture the afternoon sun. The room also features an Arts and Crafts style fireplace.
The bright and spacious kitchen sits across the hall from the living room and features lovely light-green wall and units, which contrast well with the dark worktops. There is also space in the kitchen for a dining table and chairs, ensuring you have the option of enjoying your meals there or in the drawing room.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
East Redford House has three well-proportioned bedrooms which all appear bright and spacious thanks to fresh neutral décor. The master bedroom benefits from built-in storage, as well as an adjacent dressing room with lots of storage and an en suite shower room. Both other double bedrooms offer built-in storage, and one features an original fireplace. There is also a modern family bathroom.
Beyond the main house, there is a studio flat with a kitchen area and shower room. A former boiler house lies adjacent to the studio, which is a flexible space that could be used as a workshop, office or artist’s studio. The property benefits from a large outbuilding with remote controlled doors, loft storage, lighting and electricity, which is currently used as the garage and there is also a single garage accessed via the rear of the buildings.
The property features a delightful central garden – perfect for spending sunny summer days. There is also a small area of woodland, located on the other side of the private access road, which is also included in the sale.
Colinton is a charming village, positioned to the south-west of Edinburgh. There are lots of local amenities in the village, including shops and cafes, and there is a Tesco supermarket. Spylaw Park and the Water of Leith is nearby, ideal for walkers, runners and cyclists. The area also benefits from lots of highly regarded schools, including Firrhill High School and George Watson’s. Lots of regular buses make accessing the city centre a breeze.
