Stylish 4 bedroom Victorian semi-detached villa with sunny garden
12 Stanley Road is a stunning 4 bedroom semi-detached Victorian villa with double bay windows to the front and side, situated in the highly desirable area of Trinity. The property combines contemporary decor with original period features such as impressive cornicing and working shutters in most rooms. It underwent a holistic renovation by designer owners in 2014. It has an extensive garden front and back which runs to the side along Derby Street wrapping around the property. There is also an opportunity to replace the existing car port with a garage and parking space (subject to necessary planning consents).
The bright, spacious and modern accommodation comprises - large vestibule with stunning floor tiles; downstairs the solid oak floor extends over the total ground floor; hall with large under stair store and further shelved cupboard; sitting room with bay window, impressive cornice and two shelved press cupboards; a contemporary scandinavian kitchen/dining room with west facing bay window, door to the rear garden, central island and high quality fitted kitchen with Corian work surfaces; utility room with door to the garden; contemporary shower room; and study; comprehensive lighting throughout the property.
An elegant stone staircase with a large skylight over leads to the first floor - landing with shelved cupboard; double bedroom 1 with bay window and stunning cornice; double bedroom 2 also with bay window; double bedroom 3; bedroom 4; bathroom with contemporary handmade tiles, quality sinks and hardware; and shower room; sisal flooring in most rooms. There is also a loft which is accessed via a pull-down ladder.
The property lies in the affluent and established residential district of Trinity, approximately 2 miles from the city centre and close to the Firth of Forth. This is a high amenity district with pleasant leafy streets, a superb local park, local shopping at Goldenacre and an Asda in Newhaven. The Royal Botanic Gardens are also within easy reach. The cosmopolitan waterfront areas of Leith and Granton Harbour are close by and include excellent shopping and dining facilities at the Ocean Terminal shopping centre and Commercial Quay. Excellent schooling is represented in the state and private sector.
Delightful, mature garden grounds lie to the front, side and rear of the house. The garden is south and west facing so therefore enjoys the sunshine for the majority of the day and there is direct access to the garden from the kitchen/dining room and utility.
On street parking is available on Stanley Road and Derby Street. A dilapidated car port/garage at the rear of the garden can be accessed via gates on Derby Street. The sellers gained planning permission to replace the garage and gates but this permission has now lapsed.
All fitted carpets and the integrated kitchen appliances (hob, oven, extractor, fridge drawers and dishwasher) are included in the sale price. The light fittings in the kitchen/dining room, sitting room and bedrooms are available by separate negotiation as is the wardrobe in double bedroom 2.
The property has gas central heating and most rooms have working shutters.
