Greenhill Gardens is a highly desirable residential street characterised by fine detached Victorian villas, located approximately 1.5 miles from the city centre.
There is an excellent choice of local specialist shops, bars, restaurants and cultural facilities nearby in Marchmont, Bruntsfield and Morningside.
The area is a highly sought after location for families and professionals with its easy access to Edinburgh University, the financial district and many of the city's independent schools and nearby James Gillespie's High School.
Local recreation facilities include a swimming pool, cinema and theatres.
The open spaces of Bruntsfield Links, the Meadows and Blackford Hill are all within easy walking distance.
The property is presented in immaculate order throughout and boasts many original period features and proportions, including the original first floor drawing room, and they are complimented by modern finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Of particular note is the private west-facing garden, off-street parking and garage which is rare for an upper villa.
An external stone stair leads to the front door which is at first floor level. A fully glazed porch, with south, east and west-facing aspects leads to the main reception hall. This is a wonderful room to enjoy the sun throughout the day with space for seating.
There is an elegant sitting room which comprises fine period features including intricate cornicing, working shutters and a central fireplace with open fire. There are aspects to the front and side (east and south) which flood the room with natural light. This is a particularly grand room with space for a dining table and chairs.
There is a spacious raised dining area off which overlooks the hall, leading to a modern, well equipped kitchen with an integrated dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven and hob, and microwave. Double doors open onto a delightful and sunny balcony.
There are three double bedrooms in all. The principal bedroom has a fantastic three-pane bay window and a modern en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one of which is used as a second sitting room, and a modern fitted family bathroom.
Externally, the house is set back from the street and includes a shared driveway which runs down the side of the house providing access to a single garage, private parking and a fantastic and low maintenance west-facing garden with a summer house. The garden has a range of mature trees, hedging and planting which offers colour and privacy.
