About this property

  • Closing Date - 12 noon - 25/01/2021

    10 Foulis Crescent is a wonderfully stylish detached period family house in a highly sought after and tranquil location close to excellent local amenities and facilities.

    The house has wonderfully proportioned, versatile accommodation and comprises excellent living space on the ground floor which is complemented by spacious bedroom accommodation on the first floor. The house is immaculately presented throughout and has many period features complemented by modern fixtures and fittings.

    This superb home which dates back from the early 1900's has been beautifully modernised and extended by the current owners to an exceptional standard to provide well-proportioned bright and contemporary accommodation which respects the original character of this lovely sandstone built house.

    Interiors and fittings are stylish, high-end with modernist furnishings. The property is double-glazed throughout.

    Of particular note is the large open plan living space, to the rear of the house, which is lovely and light with an aspect to the garden and French doors which open directly out to the sandstone patio area. Key features include the traditional central AGA, a focal point of the room as well as the unique curved glazed wall in the dining area. Off the kitchen there is a practical utility room and cloak/bootroom which has a W/C and internal door to the garage.

    To the front of the house there is a charming and cosy traditional sitting room with an imposing bay window, central wood burning stove and period cornicing with south facing views over the Pentland hills. Across the hall, there is a good sized games room which could also be utilised as further bedroom accommodation if required.

    Stairs rise to the first floor where there are four generous sized, immaculately presented bright double bedrooms, three of which have a south facing aspect. The principal bedroom has a dressing room and an en suite shower room.

    There is also a stylish family bathroom which completes the accommodation. Additional storage space is provided by way of a floored attic accessed from the hallway.

    Externally, to the front of the house a gated gravel path leads to the front door. The house sits back from the road, and is accessed via a private driveway providing off-street parking with electric gates and access to a spacious garage.

    To the rear, there is a lovely enclosed mature garden which is laid to lawn. There are two open patios areas, one immediately by the house surrounded by a traditional curved red sandstone walling ideal for outdoor entertaining and another to the rear corner of the garden to make the most of the setting sun and south facing views. There is an external power supply.

I love the traditional character of this house combined with the modern open plan interior.
