Offering spectacular close-up views of the rugged Salisbury Crags and Arthurs Seat, this outstanding two-bedroom quarter upper villa lies with the capital's affluent Southside, overlooking Prestonfield Golf Club. With its a tranquil and leafy yet convenient setting; situated just two miles from the heart of Edinburgh and close to Newington's diverse shopping and recreational amenities, it is the perfect retreat for city professionals. Brimming with kerb appeal, the villa is set on the upper two floors of a grand Victorian detached property.
The category C listed building boasts a characterful stone exterior, embellished with carved detailing. Inside, the villa provides fabulously light and spacious accommodation, with high-ceilinged rooms supplemented by pristine, sympathetically classic décor, large sash-and-case windows and a wealth of elegant period features. Accessed via an imposing pillared entrance with a secure entry system, the villa is reached via an impressive communal hallway and stairwell featuring a stunning stained-glass arched window and an ornate bannister. Located on the first floor, the front door opens into a spacious entrance hall, offering a tantalising first glimpse of the immaculate and neutrally-toned interiors.
Lit by triple-aspect windows, including a large bay window, the southerly-facing living room and dining area enjoys a wonderful panoramic vista of the surrounding area and benefits from sun throughout the day. With a wealth of space for furniture, this beautifully-presented room is enhanced by warm-toned flooring and original panelled window surrounds, plus an intricatelydetailed ceiling rose and cornicing. Bringing homely charm to the room, a coal-effect fire sits in an enchanting Art Nouveau-inspired surround. Leading off the reception area, via a set of double doors, is a contemporary kitchen fitted with a collection of quality timber cabinets and extensive hardwearing worktops. Superbly well-equipped, the kitchen is integrated with a full range of appliances, including an oven and a gas hob with a stylish steel splashback and cooker hood.
Also located on the first floor is a convenient WC and a generous, dual-aspect master bedroom, which benefits from breathtaking views of Arthurs Seat and a handsome ceiling cornice. Extended into the loft space and approached via a bright stairwell, the second floor accommodation comprises a further double bedroom and a chic bathroom, both lit by skylight windows. The bedroom provides access to a deep store cupboard and a large attic space, whilst the bathroom is replete with a contemporary WC, a shower-over-bath and a towel radiator. The villa benefits from gas central heating. Externally, the property is set within immaculate and lovinglymaintained communal grounds, incorporating an expansive walled rear garden, which is laid to lawn, plus a parking area with an allocated space.
