Located in the popular Murrayfield area, the house sits in the middle of its own grounds and is approached via a private gated driveway. Surrounded by Ravelston Golf Course and with views towards Corstorphine Hill, the house offers country style living within striking distance of the city centre.
The entertaining and living space in the house is exceptional. Orientated to take full advantage of the gardens and views, the drawing room and dining room are ideal for more formal entertaining. There is a sitting room/snug connected to the stunning Mozolowski and Murray conservatory, as well as a large family/play room. The impressive kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the house and features a four door Aga and large island. From here there is access to the utility room, WC, study and back door. Also on the ground floor is a further WC and a large study, currently used as a guest bedroom.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with a dressing room and large bathroom featuring a separate bath and shower unit. There is also a guest double bedroom with an en suite shower room, dressing room and south-facing roof terrace. Four further double bedrooms and two shower rooms complete this floor.
The house is fitted with a Sonos sound system and there is underfloor heating in the bathrooms.
Outside, there is an L shaped building which incorporates a large studio/gym/party room as well as a very large garage with space for several cars. In addition, there are various garden sheds and a greenhouse.
The garden ground is phenomenal for a city centre property, extending to approximately 1.6 acres to the North, South and West of the house. Sweeping laws are punctuated by mature specimen trees and mature shrubs. For families with children and dogs, this is a dream family home.
The house is in a private setting off Ravelston Dykes Road and is surrounded by Ravelston Golf Course. Murrayfield is long established as one of the most desirable residential areas in Edinburgh. Situated just over a mile from the city centre, the area is convenient for access out of town to the airport. There are excellent road links and regular buses run frequently in both directions. The area is particularly popular with families, with schools including St. George's School for Girls, Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools, Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy all within easy reach.
Murrayfield and Ravelston Golf Courses are both within walking distance. There are a number of other sporting and leisure facilities close by, including the Murrayfield Ice Rink and picturesque walks along the Water of Leith to Corstorphine Hill. There is a good range of local shops in Roseburn and Stockbridge, and the Craigleith Retail Park is a short car journey away.
