Gilson Gray Craiglea DriveARTHUR’S Seat and the Pentland Hills are two of the most striking features of Edinburgh’s landscape and while any city property would be lucky to have a view of either, the upper villa at 74/1 Craiglea Drive has the rare advantage of offering views of both.

The stunning four bedroom property, nestled in the heart of the vibrant Morningside community is situated just south-west of the city centre, a secluded location also providing the best of Edinburgh as a bustling capital.

Part of an elegant Victorian terrace, the property is on the market through award-winning Estate Agent Gilson Gray Property, for offers over £535,000.

This upper villa has been fully renovated and carries a modern feel with a blend of period features. Freshly decorated in neutral tones, it includes original ornate cornice work, fireplaces, wooden skirting and doors.

Rob McGregor from Gilson Gray Property Services said: “The views of both the Pentland hills and Arthur’s seat provide a unique opportunity to enjoy the best scenery Edinburgh has to offer – all from the comfort of your own home.

“The high ceilings and tall windows throughout the property create a wonderful spacious atmosphere which is flooded with light.

“This is an ideal family home for anyone who wants to experience the warmth of community available in Morningside but still loves city life.”

Comprising of four double bedrooms with a fifth bedroom/study, or potential playroom, and enclosed private gardens which provide a secure outdoor space for children to play in, the property provides plenty of room for a growing family.

The area is renowned for its outstanding schools from nursery to secondary level in both the private and public sectors. It has a warm community feel, with a wide variety of cafés, restaurants, an independent cinema, theatres and fresh local produce available at the Morningside farmers’ market every third Saturday.

With regular buses to and from the city centre, and the easy accessibility of the City Bypass, it’s the ideal location for a fast and convenient commute.

While the property offers some of the best views of the surrounding scenery, it also offers excellent access to it. The Pentland Hills regional park is a short drive away and offers walking, biking, pony-trekking and skiing at Hillend snow sports centre. While Braidburn Valley Park (which was awarded Scotland’s first Green Flag for excellence in parks), Colinton Mains Park and Blackford Hill are all a short walk away and offer more stunning views of the city.

The building itself has a secure entry phone system, entered via a reception vestibule with a feature stained glass window and a well maintained communal stairway to the property.

Externally, the property offers unrestricted on-street parking.

Viewings are available on request.
