A charming detached family home boasting an idyllic, peaceful environment within one of edinburgh’s most sought after locations.
The subjects of sale comprise a substantial detached villa which commands a fantastic location within one of the capital’s most highly sought after ‘hideaway’ streets, which is also home of the highly regarded Barnton Park Lawn Tennis Club. This particular property is set well back from street level, screened by delightful, mature gardens and an extensive driveway, suitable for off street parking for several cars and giving access to a tandem-style garage. To the rear, the gardens which are partly laid to lawn incorporating two patios, are a sun trap and fully enclosed by mature trees, ensuring complete privacy and security. Internally, this is a generous family home laid over two floors. The accommodation is extremely versatile and is ideal for the growing family. This property has been very well maintained by the present owners and a new gas fired central heating boiler was installed last year. There is further potential for cosmetic upgrading if so desired, giving any purchaser the opportunity to incorporate their own personal design, and with so many bright and wonderful rooms this would be an exciting but not onerous project.
