Turaideach, Gaelic for ’a great turreted building’, is a beautifully presented contemporary home, which was completed in 2015. It occupies an exceptional location, whilst being in the centre of the city, the property is tucked along a small lane, providing a peaceful and tranquil setting. The energy efficient house boasts an EPC A rating which is achieved from a combination of a super-insulated, air- tight building, coupled with a ground source heat pump, an MV heat recovery system and a 4kW PV system. The accommodation, which benefits from far reaching views from the upper floors, is generous in proportion, with high ceilings and large doors, and the finish is exceptional. There is underfloor heating on all floors, LED lighting throughout, a six zone audio system, CAT 6 cabling and windows and doors by Mozolowski & Murray.
On the ground floor, a grand reception hall sets the tone and provides access to three spacious reception rooms. The 28ft drawing room is triple aspect and benefits from bi-fold doors opening onto a large decking area to create a fantastic entertainment space. From here doors connect into the formal dining room. The sitting room is partially separated from the kitchen by an exposed stone wall and features a contemporary wood-burning stove. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke cream and sage units to base and wall level which have granite worktops. There is also a large island unit, with breakfast bar, hot water tap, wine cooler and storage. Matching range cooker and fridge freezer, along with a dual dishwasher complete the stunning appearance. Off the kitchen there is a fully fitted utility room which also houses the renewables equipment.
Access to the first floor is via a grand staircase inside the turret which is flooded with light from full height turret windows. A striking feature of the landing is the curved walls, designed to complement the curvature of the turret. The master bedroom has a Juliette balcony, a large dressing room and an exceptional en suite bathroom, with a free-standing oval bath and a walk-in shower. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, 2 with en suite shower rooms, the other served by a separate family bathroom.
On the second floor, there is a spacious family room, with a turret window to enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views towards Edinburgh, the Forth bridges and the Pentland Hills. The fifth bedroom, currently set up as a gym, is located on this floor and this is served by a shower room. There is also a home office which could potentially be utilised as a further bedroom if required.
There is a gated driveway to the front of the property, providing access to the double garage block. This has an annexe on the first floor, including a kitchen/living room, a bedroom and a bathroom all with underfloor heating. The property is set in attractive landscaped gardens, with paved pathways and terrace areas, an area of decking and well-maintained lawns, plus a hot tub.
