Tremendous four/five-bedroom detached villa in sought-after Fairmilehead, offering a magnificent family home, complete with enchanting gardens, private parking and views across the Firth of Forth. The area benefits from a range of good local amenities, whilst nearby Straiton Retail Park offers over 40 stores, including high-street retailers, eateries and supermarkets. Enjoying the outdoors couldn't be easier; with lovely walk and cycle paths in the surrounding greenbelt areas, pony trekking and dry-slope skiing in the Pentland Hills, full equestrian facilities at Mortonhall, fly fishing at the reservoirs in Balerno and a range of golf courses, including Mortonhall and Braid Hills, all nearby. The area is ideally situated for access to some of Edinburgh's best schools including nearby George Watson's College, George Heriot's School and it falls within the catchment area of the highly regarded Buckstone Primary School and Boroughmuir High School. Fairmilehead enjoys a good public transport system with regular day and night buses to the city centre. The proximity of the City Bypass makes commuting by car both quick and convenient. Edinburgh International Airport is less than 10 miles away and can be reached in a 15-minute commute. Approached via the long gravelled driveway, the double-fronted villa instantly endears with its sandstone façade and twin bay windows. Welcoming you into the property is an entrance vestibule, which flows into the vast central hall. At the front are two delightful formal reception rooms: the slightly larger living room boasts an inviting living-flame gas fire, while the elegant dining room would lend itself to a variety of uses. The dual-aspect family room to the rear enjoys direct access to the garden and a rustic woodburning stove, and thus provides a wonderful third reception room to be enjoyed all year round. Positioned on the southern corner of the property is the heart of the home: the breathtaking dining kitchen. Floor to-ceiling windows and patio doors on three sides yield leafy views of the rear garden and flood the room with spectacular natural light, as does the magnificent central cupola. Enclosed by a convivial peninsula, the contemporary kitchen offers a wealth of storage and workspace, plus integrated appliances, including an induction hob, a chimney-style cooker hood and an eye-level electric double oven. The kitchen is also supplemented with a separate utility room with garden access. Returning to the hall, the ground floor accommodates a rear-facing double bedroom and a pristine three-piece bathroom. Upstairs there are three equally endearing double bedrooms, one of which benefits from a useful walk-in store; a versatile single bedroom and another three-piece bathroom. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. Externally the property is enveloped by landscaped private gardens, including a secluded, south-facing rear garden with a sunny patio, a pond and a substantial garden shed. The vast plot also accommodates an integral single garage (with light and power) and a gated tandem driveway.
