The area is characterised by a large swathe of green open spaces including the world renowned Royal Botanic Garden, Inverleith Park and the playing fields of George Heriots, The Edinburgh Academy and Fettes Schools.
The Edinburgh Academy Junior School sports fields lie immediately to the north of the house while the house benefits from a delightful southerly view over the principal part of the Botanic Garden.
The property is under a mile from Stockbridge which offers a range of specialist shopping and a fine choice of restaurants whilst Comely Bank and Craigleith provide further retail outlets.
The house is also well situated for access to Waverley Train Station and the main road routes westwards to the city bypass, airport and Motorway Network.
36a Inverleith Place is a spectacular upper villa with the Edinburgh Academy Junior School sports fields immediately to the north of the house while the house benefits from a delightful southerly view over the principal part of the Royal Botanic Garden. The property benefits from its own private entrance with a ground floor entrance leading to the upper levels. Internally there is generously proportioned and well-presented accommodation over first and second floors providing excellent family living and reception space. With aspects on all sides, but predominantly facing south, there is an abundance of natural light throughout the day, the property has been extensively modernised by the current owners with a successful blend of modern fixtures and fittings whilst retaining a variety of charming period features.
The main living accommodation is located on the first floor with an elegant and well appointed drawing room to the front with open southerly views. Adjacent to this is the comfortable and well proportioned sitting room, which also faces south. Also of note is the impressive dining kitchen with granite work surfaces and an electric AGA. Adjoining the kitchen/breakfast room is a family room which also makes a very useful study, as well as a utility room beyond. The rear garden can be accessed directly from the utility room by an open stair. The principal bedroom is located on the first floor and benefits from a well-appointed en suite bathroom with a separate shower. Four further generous double bedrooms are located on the upper floor and are served by a family bathroom and a separate shower room.
Externally the property is set back from the street with a private pedestrian entrance and vehicular access via a shared drive to the side, which leads through double gates to a paved parking area and a detached double garage. The garage is located in the north east corner of the garden and has a useful one bedroom annexe, or studio, above, which would be ideal for ancillary accommodation or a home office. Of particular note is the magnificent enclosed garden to the rear of the property. There is a generous central lawn surrounded by well-stocked mature borders with a wide variety of delightful plants, shrubs and trees providing plenty of colour for much of the year.
