Lauder Road is located at the heart of the Grange, a very well established residential suburb of Edinburgh, less than two miles drive south of the city centre.
The popularity of the area is accounted for not only by its pleasant, quiet and leafy streets, but also by its convenient location for access to schools, local amenities and road links both in and out of town.
Nearby Bruntsfield, Morningside and Newington provide a wealth of charming local shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, along with a cinema, theatre and a choice of supermarkets.
There are a number of independent schools on the south side of the city, including George Watson's, George Heriot's and Merchiston Castle School which are all within easy reach, while the Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College are also easily accessible.
A stunning, contemporary home benefitting from world class features including a panoramic glazed gallery, entertainment room, four bedrooms, private gardens and a double garage.
The front path lies securely behind the entrance gate and leads to the impressive handmade Scandinavian teak front door. As you enter the entrance hall you are greeted with the most spectacular space. The "L" shaped design features an impressive glazed open-plan area on the ground floor which flows beautifully from a sitting area through the open kitchen and to a dining room.
Within the sitting area is a standalone suspended 'Ergofocus' wood-burning fireplace with slate hearth which provides an extraordinary focal point and supplies plenty of heat for cosy winter nights. The kitchen beyond is a bespoke creation by Mowlem and features hand-crafted integrated kitchen units in walnut and Corian work surfaces throughout. The kitchen is well equipped with the appliances you would expect in a house of this quality, including a 40 bottle wine fridge, two dishwashers, steam oven and an integrated coffee machine, all by Miele and Gaggenau.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining space, flanked on two sides by full height timber framed glass sliding doors to the garden and patio with a feature wall composed of slate from the Lake District.
Returning to the entrance hall, on the opposing side to the living space is an office with doors leading to the garden and the hot-tub deck. This room would serve equally well as a fifth bedroom. Heading towards the rear of the property through a sliding glazed screen through to the utility room, installed by Kitchen's International and featuring Corian worktops and Siemens washing machine and tumble dryer.
A staircase leads from the utility room down to the entertainment room: a phenomenally useful and flexible space which would lend itself well to a cinema, playroom, games room or bar, amongst other things.
Returning to the ground floor, a bespoke curved stair rises to the first floor where it opens to a stunning clerestory hallway with glazed gallery to one end, offering open views and a delightful seating or reading area. The remainder of the first floor of the spacious and stunning family home is made up of four bedrooms, three of which are en suite. The principal suite has numerous built in closets, a dressing area and a generously sized shower room with dual sinks and a bidet. There is also a family bathroom.
Externally, 37A Lauder Road benefits from a beautifully maintained south facing walled garden featuring a decked area accessible directly from the living and dining areas and a hot tub deck next to the study.
There is also a double integrated garage.
