Desirably located in Ravelston, within easy reach of the city centre, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom terraced house benefits from tasteful interiors, sociable semi open-plan living, delightful secluded gardens, and a detached single garage for private parking.
Enjoying a leafy off-road position, secluded gardens, and a private detached garage, all approximately two miles from Edinburgh city centre, this modern terraced house promises a highly appealing three-bedroom city home. The house is tastefully presented in natural tones throughout and boasts sociable free-flowing living spaces.
The front door opens into a bright porch, leading into a hall and the living accommodation beyond. Extending to the rear of the house, with handsome wood-flooring, this includes a living room (with built-in storage) flowing through to a formal dining room. The sitting area is arranged around a focal living-flame fire and brightly lit by a large southwest-facing window with a leafy private outlook. The dining room also benefits from extensive glazing and is conveniently set beside the kitchen, where a four-seater breakfast bar creates a visual division between spaces.
The kitchen comes well-appointed with stylish wood-toned cabinets neatly integrated with an eye-level oven, a gas hob with a feature hood, a fridge freezer, and a washing machine. The kitchen also provides direct garden access, handy when alfresco dining.
On the first floor, a landing affords access to three carpeted bedrooms, two double rooms and a single, all supplemented by fitted wardrobes. The sunny principal bedroom not only benefits from outstanding incorporated storage, but also an en-suite shower enclosure framed by attractive monochrome tiling.
Finally, tiled in the same fashion, is a family bathroom replete with a WC-suite and a P-shaped bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round warmth.
Outside, the house provides exceptionally private outdoor space. The south-facing front garden, with a lawn and seating area, is pleasantly sheltered by mature planting and hedgerows, whilst the large rear patio is walled with a shed and gated access. Also located to the rear of the property is a detached single garage for private parking.
Positioned just over a mile west of Edinburgh city centre, the affluent suburb of Ravelston is popular among families and professionals owing to its tranquil ambience, fantastic amenities and proximity to some of the capital’s most beautiful parks and green spaces, including Ravelston Woods.

The area is also just minutes’ walk from the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One and Two) and from here the picturesque Water of Leith Walkway provides a peaceful route through Dean Village and into cosmopolitan Stockbridge. The property falls within the catchment area for excellent state schools and is also convenient for numerous independent schools, particularly ESMS and St George’s School for Girls. The area benefits from ideal bus links into the city centre; the nearest tram stop at Murrayfield offers swift, direct travel into the city centre via Haymarket train station, and to Edinburgh International Airport.
