Situated in the popular residential area of Barnton, this property occupies a private location neighboured primarily by large family houses.
Superbly placed to the west of the city centre, the property offers excellent access to the airport, the Edinburgh bypass, the Forth Road Bridge and the Central Scotland motorway network.
The property is situated a few hundred metres from Cargilfield School, whilst Fettes College, The Mary Erskine School and Stewart's Melville College are within easy reach by car.
There are excellent local amenities and leisure facilities, including both The Royal Burgess and Bruntsfield golf courses and Cramond foreshore.
Eagles Rest is a magnificent detached contemporary family home, offering spectacular, open plan family living and reception space complemented by five comfortable and spacious bedrooms. With aspects all round the house, there is an abundance of natural light throughout the day and with generous proportions throughout the property, there is a general sense of airiness, space and light, making this a superb family home.
The house occupies an extremely private and secluded plot and is approached down its own gated driveway with parking to the front of the house, where there is an integral garage. The front door is accessed via a couple of steps and opens into the vestibule and on to the reception hall, where you get an immediate impression of light and space. A step down leads to the superb open plan dining room and kitchen which forms the central hub of the house. The kitchen is particularly well appointed with high quality units and black glass work surfaces. Double doors open from the dining area to the south facing balcony, successfully integrating inside with outdoors. To the side of this room a further set of double doors open to the west facing conservatory where there is a wood burning stove and underfloor heating, making this a wonderful room to use throughout the year. Not only is it incredibly light, it also offers delightful views to the south over the garden and again has direct access through sliding doors to the generous south facing balcony. To the other side of the kitchen and dining room there is a further more formal raised sitting room. It is an incredibly light and spacious room and while all these spaces are open plan, they feel separate in their use and flow extremely well to provide individual spaces with all the benefits of modern living. Further floor to ceiling doors open from this sitting room to an additional raised balcony which is also accessed from the principal bedroom. The raised principal bedroom is situated to the east of the ground floor, and is accessed via a private set of steps. It benefits from extensive built-in wardrobes along one side and a well appointed en suite bath and shower room. There are two further bedrooms on the ground floor, of which bedroom two has an internal stair leading down to its en suite bath and shower room on the lower level. In addition, there is a cloakroom with WC as well as various store cupboards. Although separately accessed, the home office is also at ground floor level and is situated to the north of the garage.
Downstairs, there are two further generous double bedrooms, of which one has an en suite shower room while the other is served by the main family bathroom. Both of these rooms look out to the colourful garden, and bedroom four has a door opening to the patio area. There is also a utility room and large storage area under the stair.
One of the overarching features of Eagles Rest is the uninterrupted views over the south facing garden to The Royal Burgess golf club. The south facing balcony wraps around the rear of the building and is a particularly lovely space to enjoy external dining and to benefit from sunshine throughout the day. It has split levels providing separation from the main living area and the principal bedroom and main sitting room. From the balcony there are delightful views over the garden and beyond to the golf course. It also provides shelter over the patio immediately to the rear of the house at garden level.
The grounds at Eagles Rest are wonderfully mature and established creating an incredible sense of privacy as well as colour for much of the year. To the south of the house, there is a generous garden with a large central lawn, surrounded by mature borders with a wide variety of shrubs, plants and trees. To the front of the house is the private gated driveway with extensive parking, the integrated garage and where the home office is accessed.
