Immaculately presented and generously proportioned semi-detached family home with stunning views of Edinburgh's skyline
246 Ferry Road is an immaculately presented and generously proportioned semi-detached family home offering exceptionally bright, spacious and flexible accommodation over ground and first floors. The property benefits from predominantly south and west facing aspects ensuring it is wonderfully light throughout the day. The property retains much of its original charm with a variety of charming period features throughout, including the delightful plasterwork, west facing bow-window, the stained glass window in the hall and stripped timber floors. Yet, despite its traditional feel, it offers the best of contemporary living with high specification fixtures and fittings throughout, having been sympathetically and extensively upgraded by the current owners.
The front door opens to a vestibule and beyond to the broad and welcoming hall from where the principal reception rooms radiate and the stair rises to the upper floor. The elegant dining room and bay windowed drawing room face south, while the comfortable sitting with bow-window faces west. A small set of steps leads to the breakfasting kitchen and on to the utility room. From here stairs rise to the home office / bedroom 5 and storage room.
The main stair rises to the first floor where there are four generous double bedrooms. The principal bedroom is particularly fine with a bay window and stunning southerly views over George Heriot's playing fields to Edinburgh's skyline including Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh Castle and beyond to the Pentland Hills. There is also a luxurious en suite bath and shower room, while the other bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and further shower room.
Externally, the house sits well back from the road and is screened by a mature hedge. A gated stone path and well-tended south facing garden lead to the front door. To the rear of the property there is a beautifully landscaped garden with a wide variety of colourful plants and shrubs surrounding the central lawn. The garden has been well maintained and facing north and west, enjoys plenty of light particularly in the early morning, afternoon and evening. The seating areas are very private, and are well positioned to take advantage of the sunlight at various stages throughout the day. To the rear of the garden there is a large garage with sufficient space for a workshop, as well as an off-street parking space in front.
