Unique, contemporary detached family home in a leafy riverside plot within the City of Edinburgh by Juniper Green. The newly-completed property is finished to an exceptionally high standard and is available furnished. The property enjoys an unrivaled woodland outlook onto the Water of Leith with an abundance of natural light. Built into the hillside, the property offers city living but with the quite seclusion of a countryside setting.
The entry level upper floor comprises a generous master bedroom with en-suite; three further double bedrooms (one with en-suite); large family bathroom with free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle. All bedrooms benefit from extensive fitted wardrobes. The dramatic helical staircase leads to the lower floor and a very large, bright and airy, open space cleverly zoned to incorporate a chef`s kitchen and breakfast bar, living room with living flame gas fire, large dining area and TV `snug`. Large glass folding doors extend the living space further, giving direct access to an extensive secluded patio overlooking the rear garden and East Mill Weir in the Water of Leith, which runs through the bottom of the garden. A separate utility room, adjoining the kitchen, and a 5th bedroom (currently used as a home office) complete the ground floor. The roadside driveway offers parking for two vehicles and houses a separate bike store, while there is a large garden store/workshop under the rear patio.
