Exceptional and beautifully presented family home in high amenity location.
18 Merchiston Avenue is an exceptional family home in a prime location. Comprehensively upgraded and renovated by Tremmel Restoration in 2002, the property provides well presented and flexible family accommodation on three floors. Built in 1876, the property retains much of its original period character with a wealth of fine plasterwork and original woodwork while it has been sympathetically upgraded to cater for the needs of modern living.
At ground floor level an impressive entrance reception hall gives access to the main reception rooms with a superb balconied terrace leading off the family sitting room. At first floor level there are four double bedrooms including the master bedroom with bay window and an en suite shower room, a family bathroom and access to a spacious attic which offers the potential to be converted to additional bedrooms with views over Edinburgh and the Pentlands. At garden level there are two further bedrooms one of which is en suite, a family games room, shower room, utility room and, most spectacularly, with direct access to the garden a stunning Clive Christian kitchen. Installed in 2007 with glazing on three sides this large kitchen/dining room is comprehensively equipped with oak cabinets, granite surfaces and tiled flooring. In addition to the kitchen most of the bathrooms were upgraded in 2015-2016 to include the use of natural stone.
Well screened from the street there is a garden to the front of the property with off-street parking while there is a fully enclosed south west facing walled garden with a level lawn, mature shrubs and tree surrounds.
