    About this property

    • 6 Mansionhouse Road is a magnificent detached Victorian family home. It has been extensively refurbished and beautifully finished to an exceptionally high specification over recent years. The property successfully incorporates many contemporary fixtures and fittings yet retains a wealth of impressive original period features.

      The house offers bright, elegant and spacious family accommodation over four levels, with a generous total floor area of almost 5,000 sq ft. There is a combination of excellent family living and reception space. Of particular note is the wonderful free-flowing ground floor accommodation.
      The ground floor comprises a west facing bay-windowed sitting room, an exquisite family dining kitchen spanning from the front of the building to the impressive sun-room/family room to the rear of the property. Additionally, there is a TV room which could also be used as an office or as a sixth bedroom. At the rear of the property there is a well-appointed utility room, bath and shower room as well as useful storage cupboards.

      The fine stone stair rises to the first floor. There is a room at the half-landing level with a lovely outlook onto the rear garden. The room lends itself to being an additional reception room, music room or an office. On the first floor there are four spacious double bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. The large bay windowed room could function as the principal bedroom, depending on preference, with a dressing room or nursery off it as well as a shower room.

      A further set of stairs rise to the top floor where there is a simply stunning principal bedroom suite, with dressing room and a luxurious bath and shower room. The views are breath-taking, particularly to the east towards Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Alternatively, the large room with dual aspect could be used as another family room with the smaller room functioning as a bedroom or study. There is extensive eaves storage at this level.

      The house is set well back from the road and has a paved path leading to the front door. A private driveway provides off-street parking and the property also benefits from having a garage. The garage could be used as a home gym if desired. There is an easily maintained front lawn. To the rear of the house there is a sheltered and private walled garden with a generous lawn. There is a substantial paved terrace extending from the rear of the house, ideal for outdoor dining, with steps leading down to the garden. There is security lighting as well as a number of uplighters around the house, which make the house even more impressive at night.

    A privilege to be involved with the sale of such a fine family home, which is wonderfully light, spacious and impressive. It is without doubt one of the best houses I have seen for a while.
