Handsome semi-detached stone built family home over three floors, in one of Edinburgh's most sought after areas

About this property

  • 7 Merchiston Avenue is a handsome stone built semi-detached family home offering spacious, comfortable and versatile accommodation set over three floors. With both east and west aspects, the property benefits from plenty of natural light throughout the day, and successfully retains much of its original charm with a range of fine period features. With superb family living and reception space over both ground and first floors, complemented by five comfortable bedrooms, this is a wonderful family home.

    The front door opens to a welcoming hall from where the principal living accommodation radiates and the stair rises to the first floor, crowned by an impressive cupola, filling the house with light. The elegant dining room is west facing, which is now used as a sitting room, and is set to the front of the house, while there is a delightful family room to the rear with a glazed bay window opening to the garden. Adjacent to this room is the breakfasting kitchen with Aga, with a utility room off and direct access to the garage. There is also a cloak room with WC and good storage on this floor.

    At first floor level there is the fabulous drawing room spanning the entire width of the house and again benefiting from a west facing bay window. There are two bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor, while on the upper floor there are three further bedrooms and an additional bathroom.

    Externally, the house is set well back from the road and is well screened by a mature tree. A gated path leads to the front of the house while there is also a driveway providing off-street parking and leading to the garage. To the rear of the house there is an enchanting walled garden, with a beautifully tended lawn and colourful herbaceous borders. There is a wide variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees providing colour for much of the year.

I love the location of the house, close to a wide range of amenities and culture of Bruntsfield, and yet it is so tranquil.
