Full Description

Spacious, flexible four bedroom detached villa, set on a generous plot with gardens, a driveway and a garage. The property is conveniently located in the popular Gilmerton area, south of Edinburgh city centre. A vestibule opens to the main hallway which features wood-effect flooring. Set to the front, the living room features a bay window, press cupboard, carpeted flooring, and offers potential as a fifth bedroom. Two double bedrooms are set to the front and rear, with carpeted flooring and fitted wardrobes; whilst a third bedroom has a side-aspect window and includes wood-effect flooring and a wardrobe. To the opposite side, a flexible room offers a dining area or potential lounge, and gives further access to the kitchen. The kitchen connects the dining room and the generous conservatory which has a door to the garden and superb views of Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle. Fitted kitchen units include stone-effect worktops, a sink with drainer, a tiled surround, and a quality range cooker with canopy above. A shower room has a rear-facing window and is fitted with a two-piece suite, and a cubicle with mains mixer shower. On the first floor, a family bathroom is fitted with a traditional-style three-piece suite, and the spacious bedroom has dual-aspect natural light from Velux windows and offers the potential to be partitioned into two separate bedrooms, subject to any relevant planning permissions. Gilmerton is a long-established community offering a variety of recreational activities, including a range of golf courses and sports centres, as well as public parks and open countryside for walkers and cyclists. A selection of specialist shops can be found on Drum Street, with a Lidl and a Morrisons supermarket also within the vicinity. Cameron Toll Shopping Centre and Straiton Retail Park are within easy reach, offering a large choice of retail outlets. Local schooling is close by, with Gilmerton Primary and Gracemount High School quickly accessible. Regular bus services operate to and from the city centre via Gilmerton Road, and the city bypass is easily accessed for connections to the motorway network, and to the major retail parks such as Straiton, Fort Kinnaird and The Gyle.

Back to Previous Results

The Prime Minister at 8.30pm on Monday, 23 March 2020 announced unprecedented measures restricting movement of the UK population in order to combat the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.

We are experiencing a huge surge of calls and email requests following this announcement, at a time when our capacity is more restricted than normal by sickness absence. Our capacity to answer calls will be restricted and more calls than normal will end in voicemail. Those voicemails will then be emailed to our central, team email accounts and allocated appropriately to the relevant staff members.

Viewing Requests

Anyone hoping to view a property will be unable to arrange a viewing in the coming three weeks. Reassuring our clients through this particularly difficult time has to be our top priority.

We will have to take the unprecedented step of not responding to viewing requests in the meantime. When restrictions are lifted on movement we would ask that, if you remain interested, you submit a fresh request.

Please Remain Patient - We Are in This Together

We respectfully ask that anyone first makes contact with us by email in the coming days.

We are all in this together. We ask that everyone tries to be kind to each other and to our staff throughout what are already the most stressful and anxious of times for everyone, let alone someone who is supposed to be moving home.

Best wishes and be safe,
MOV8 Real Estate
