A stunning and cleverly extended semi-detached family home in Craigmount High Catchment
Seldom available, this solidly built 1950’s semi-detached villa has greatly benefitted from a superior two-storey side extension plus an attic conversion. These have transformed the property into an extremely spacious and contemporary home over three levels which is finished to a very high standard throughout. Extremely versatile accommodation (158 sqm) allows several rooms to easily adapt to the ever-changing needs of modern life and excellent storage (including quality fitted wardrobes) has been a consideration. A comfortable bay-windowed sitting room boasting a superb central focal point gas fire gives direct access to both the linked living room and formal dining area beyond. To the rear, the walk-through breakfast room flows into an impressive fully fitted kitchen complete with integrated appliances. The property also enjoys the luxury of two stylish shower rooms and a choice of 3 double bedrooms (with fitted wardrobes). A self-contained office/flatlet on the lower level offers tremendous scope of use with its modern kitchenette/utility plus large games room/4th bedroom. Many attractive features, hardwood flooring, sunny rooms, a south-facing view of the Pentland Hills and much more combine to create a most endearing residence. There is a security system, UPVC double glazing and gas central heating. Internal viewing is strongly recommended.
Belgrave Gardens forms part of a highly regarded residential district occupying an elevated site adjacent to Edinburgh Zoo and Corstorphine Hill. The school catchment area is well reputed Craigmount High School.
