Property description

Charming two storey terraced family home presented in immaculate order and set in a highly sought after location

7 South Gillsland Road is a charming two storey terraced family home presented in immaculate order throughout. The property benefits from both east and west facing aspects making it particularly light and bright throughout the day further enhanced by the wonderful cupola crowning the original timber stair. The property has been extensively and sensitively modernised over recent years catering perfectly for contemporary family living, and yet successfully retains much of its original charm with a variety delightful period features.

The front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall from where the principal living accommodation is accessed and the stair rises to the upper floor. The elegantly proportioned west facing bay windowed sitting room is situated to the front of the house and has a charming mantelpiece as well as beautiful cornicing. The bay window has window seating with excellent storage underneath. The broad hallway leads through double sliding doors to the open plan dining kitchen. This room is a particular feature of the house, with solid wood units and wooden work surfaces, a central island with breakfast bar and an Aga. There is also a log burning stove in the dining area. There are two sets of patio doors opening to the patio and garden beyond. The utility room is set to the rear of the dining area and again has a further door leading out to the garden. A set of stairs rise to the former Maid's room which is currently used as a home office and could be used as a fifth bedroom. Also on the ground floor is a shower room as well as two useful storage cupboards.

The main stair rises to the first floor where the bedrooms are located. The principal bedroom faces west and also has a bay window and decorative cornicing. It is a generously proportioned and wonderfully light room. There are three further bedrooms on this floor as well as a well appointed family bathroom.

The house is set well back from the road with an easily maintained garden with mature planting to the front. A gated path leads up some steps to the front door. To the rear of the property there is a generous walled garden where there is a range of mature plants and shrubs providing lots of colour. Immediately to the rear of the house is a large patio which is ideal for external dining. There is also a large garden shed.

In addition, proprietors are entitled to a key to the extensive and wonderfully private Merchiston Gardens and are obliged to pay a modest annual fee.
