1 Upper Coltbridge Terrace is a well presented and fine example of a traditional stone built Victorian semi-detached family home set in the tranquil, renowned and ever popular residential area of Murrayfield which lies just a few miles to the north west of Edinburgh's thriving city centre. The setting at the entrance to a cul-de-sac provides a traffic-light and friendly atmosphere.

The impressive, versatile and well-proportioned accommodation is ideal for modern day family living and is laid out as follows:
Approached via a charming and well stocked front garden the house is entered through a vestibule leading in turn to a wide reception hall with a traditional broad staircase leading to the upper floors. To the front of the house is the dining room with bay window, cornice work and marble fireplace while to the rear is a shower room, a delightful sitting room with fireplace and an open arch leading through to the well-appointed kitchen breakfast room with terracotta tiled floor, gas fired Aga, a full range of floor and wall mounted kitchen cabinets with polished granite work tops and ample space for a large table and chairs. Beyond the kitchen there is a rear hall with two pantry cupboards and the utility room with plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, numerous additional storage cupboards, Belfast sink and a door giving access to the back garden. A short flight of stairs from the hall also leads up to a double bedroom and shower room.
At first floor level there is a spacious open landing area with a linen storage cupboard and a traditional Victorian skylight. To the front of the house is an elegant south facing drawing room with bay window, cornice work and marble fireplace. Adjacent to the drawing room is a south facing single bedroom while to the rear of the house there are two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
Above the landing area on the second floor is a smaller traditional Victorian skylight. Leading off the landing is a double bedroom overlooking the back garden, a study or 5th double bedroom and to the front of the house a large room with extensive built-in under-eve storage which could be used as a child's occasional bedroom or playroom.
Murrayfield is located to the west of the city centre and is one of Edinburgh's most admired residential areas. It is conveniently located for the West End, the city centre and Haymarket Station. There is local shopping in nearby Roseburn and a large Sainsbury's Supermarket and a Marks & Spencer Food Hall at Craigleith Retail Park, a few minutes' drive away. For the sports enthusiast there are several golf courses and tennis courts nearby, and easy access to walks along the Water of Leith and network of cycle paths. Murrayfield Stadium and the open spaces of Murrayfield Park are a short walk away while the 'Family Tennis Club' with two courts is equally close by on Henderland Road. The area is well placed for ease of access to the City bypass, Edinburgh International Airport and all central Scotland's motorway links. Haymarket train station is a short walk away. There are excellent schools in the area with Mary Erskine, Stewart's Melville College and St George's School for Girl's which is within a moment's walk from the house.
To the front of the house is a delightful and mature garden area with a gated paved driveway and a gated pedestrian pathway leading to the front door.
To the rear of the property there is a landscaped paved and gravelled patio garden with raised beds brimming with mature shrubs and plants. A short flight of steps with a gate lead to an area of garden ground shared with the neighbouring property. This area is owned by St George's School for Girl's and is leased to the electricity utility which has an electricity sub-station set within the garden. However the proprietors of this house and the neighbouring houses have made use of this area throughout their period of ownership.
