5th May 2021 at 12 noon.
Set within a prime residential development in Fairmilehead, against the stunning backdrop of the Pentland Hills, this outstanding five-bedroom, three-bathroom detached property offers expansive interiors, contemporary semi open-plan living space, exquisite design and high-spec fixtures and fittings. The exceptional family home boasts a steam room and a well-equipped gym, and is accompanied by manicured gardens, an integral single garage and private parking.
Nestled within a tranquil location, surrounded by scenic open countryside, the desirable home is located just five miles south of Edinburgh and within easy reach of the city bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the central Scotland motorway network.
Set quietly back from the road, the home offers an alluring first impression and instant kerb appeal with its imposing facade and pillared portico entrance. Behind the front door, a reception hall (with a handy WC) provides an impressive welcome and draws you in, with classic understated décor, to the exceptional interiors on offer. Leading off the hall, a stunning semi open-plan kitchen and dining area is the hub of this family home. Stepping inside reveals a sprawling, contemporary space, beautifully defined by marbled floor tiles and minimalist styling, where a generous seated dining area, perfect for family meals or entertaining, can extend, via French doors, into the south-facing rear garden. Openly adjoined, a dual-aspect kitchen (also with garden access) is appointed with luxury, German-built Pronom cabinetry paired with stainless-steel and granite worktops. The streamlined design incorporates a range of Siemens and Miele appliances including two ovens, a steam oven, a combi microwave oven, a five ring gas hob, a statement extractor hood, a coffee-maker, a wine fridge and a dishwasher, along with a freestanding American-style fridge/freezer. An adjoining utility/laundry room discreetly houses a freestanding washing machine and a dryer and provides handy garage access. Boasting impressive proportions, stylish oak flooring and impeccable presentation, two reception rooms are located on this floor. A garden-facing living room, flooded with light from a west-facing box window, enjoys elegant styling and is arranged around a striking wall-set fireplace, whilst a family room occupies an exceptional footprint and provides a relaxing, comfortable space for everyday living and recreation. A quietly located, versatile room with fitted storage, currently arranged as a home office, could alternatively represent a fifth double bedroom, if desired.
Upstairs, accessed from a galleried landing with storage, four double bedrooms are accompanied by built-in wardrobes, with the second largest sleeping area further enhanced by a chic en-suite shower room.
The magnificent master bedroom is beautifully appointed with sleek, oak flooring and a textured, slate statement wall. Luxuriously appointed with mirrored walk-in wardrobes, the stylish sleeping area also boasts a deluxe en-suite bathroom with jack-and-jill sinks, a WC, stylish vanity storage, a double-ended freestanding bathtub with a shower attachment, and a steam room with a shower. A sumptuous four-piece family bathroom completes the accommodation. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, the home sits within manicured, landscaped gardens. The enclosed, west-facing rear garden incorporates a timber-frame outbuilding appointed as a gym, along with a good-sized garden shed. A driveway to the front provides parking for multiple vehicles and leads to an integral single garage.
