This is a rare opportunity to acquire a unique family house in a beautiful and peaceful setting in a prime Colinton address, now in need of complete modernisation and offering wonderful potential. The house benefits from lovely South facing mature gardens and private parking as well as a balcony with wonderful open views. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and the main living accommodation is on the first floor. There is a bright galleried landing, spacious L shaped sitting/dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room, principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a separate WC. A spacious South facing balcony can be accessed from the landing and the principal bedroom. Downstairs there are four further double bedrooms, a spacious utility room, a bathroom and WC. There is good storage on the ground floor.


The area is characterised by elegant properties and a leafy, tranquil environment and is within easy reach of the city centre. The house is accessed via a driveway with ample space for parking and turning and is quietly tucked away from the street. The first section of the drive is in shared ownership with the neighbour and the areas in front of and behind the house are private.


This is a fantastic house due to the combination of generous accommodation, private setting and beautiful gardens, making it ideal for families looking to move to this highly sought-after area.

Gillespie Road is an affluent and sought after address within the Colinton Conservation Area, which lies to the south-west of Edinburgh and offers a contrast between the peaceful, semi-rural suburbs and the bustling city centre. The Braid and Blackford Hills, Spylaw Park, Colinton Dell and the Water of Leith walkway are a short distance away whilst the Pentland Hills Regional Park and Glencorse Reservoir, also nearby, offer wonderful opportunities for trail running, cycling, horse riding and fishing.


Colinton is renowned for its proximity to these open spaces, its village atmosphere, local independent shops, and recreational facilities including the Craiglockhart Tennis Centre, several public and private golf courses and the Midlothian Snowsports Centre at Hillend.


There are several outstanding schools in the area, including Juniper Green Primary and Currie Community High School in the state sector and George Watson’s College and Merchiston Castle School in the private sector.


The area is well served by Sainsbury’s supermarket, with a Waitrose and Marks & Spencer a short drive away. There are frequent bus services to the City Centre; easy access to the City Bypass and Edinburgh’s International Airport whilst Waverley station can be reached in 10-minutes from nearby Slateford railway station.
