Property highlight: Sought after family home in Fairmilehead
Part of an exclusive modern development in highly sought-after Fairmilehead, this exceptional detached house is an outstanding family home that provides the best in contemporary living.
Situated on a quiet street, similar to a cul-de-sac with no through traffic, the south-facing property further boasts four double bedrooms, two bathrooms (and a WC), a large living room, and an impressive open-plan dining kitchen and family room (with a utility room just off). It is presented in excellent decorative order throughout and is finished with quality fixtures and fittings. Furthermore, the home enjoys well-kept gardens and generous private parking, as well as a convenient setting in easy commuting distance of Edinburgh city centre and numerous idyllic green spaces, such as the Pentland Hills.
11 Gladhouse Place immediately impresses with its beautiful façade. Inside, the appeal continues with an entrance hall that is fashionably decorated. It offers a convenient cupboard and a WC, and leads right into the living room. Here, subtle olive tones create a relaxed and comfortable setting, whilst the spacious footprint (which can accommodate a good selection of furnishings) is brightly illuminated by a southerly-facing box bay window. To the rear of the property is the home’s centrepiece: a stunning dining kitchen and family room that share an expansive open-plan layout which extends out further via bi-folding doors to the garden. This impressive reception space, with further glazing and rooflights for all-day sun, is cleverly zoned to provide distinct environments for family meals and dinner parties, and relaxing and socialising. Finished with neat details like vertical radiators, an understated colour palette, and a shelved recess, it exudes contemporary allure.
Furthermore, the kitchen complements the setup, fitted with glossy cream-coloured cabinets that accentuate the sense of space seamlessly blending with the décor. It enjoys downlit worktops, and comes with a selection of integrated appliances. A utility room just off provides additional storage, garden access, and plumbing for a washer and dryer.
From the hall, a staircase rises to the first-floor landing where the four double bedrooms await.Each bedroom is lovingly presented in a modern style and equipped with built-in wardrobes to maximise the useable floorspace, which is laid with a plush carpet for optimal comfort. The spacious principal bedroom further boasts a contemporary en-suite shower room with an oversized step-in shower. A chic family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms, equipped with a four-piece suite and a towel radiator.
Externally, the property is nestled between well-tended gardens to the front and rear. Whilst the former adds to the home’s outstanding kerb appeal, the latter provides a true haven for families, coming fully enclosed and with a sweeping lawn, a soft bark play area, and a patio for alfresco dining in the sun. Furthermore, the property is on the edge of the new development, benefitting from the old Buckstone wall and views over old Buckstone bungalows, as well as with clear views of the Braids and beyond to the Forth Bridges andFife. To the front of the home, there is also a monoblock double driveway and an integrated single garage.
