Situation

Stantonmuir is located in Spylaw, just above the village of Colinton, which originated around the ford crossing over the Water of Leith. It has grown over the years to become one of the city's most prestigious suburbs with some of Edinburgh's most exclusive and fine family homes, set in large mature gardens. It retains its village ambience yet provides an excellent range of local shopping facilities and services. First class schools in the area include Merchiston Castle, George Watson's College and George Heriot's School while slightly further afield are The Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools, St George's School for Girls, The Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College, several of which provide a school bus service from Colinton Village while the others are easily reached using the several local bus routes. There are delightful walks on the Pentland Hills and Braid Hills as well as along the leafy banks of the Water of Leith accessed from Colinton Dell. There is direct access to the cycle paths and walkways of Colinton Dell which lead from Leith to Balerno. Further recreational facilities include several public and private golf courses, tennis courts and the nearby ski slope at Hillend. There is a regular bus service into the city and easy access to the City Bypass providing links to Edinburgh International Airport, central Scotland's motorway network and a variety out of town retail parks.

Set in a secluded position, off a private cul-de-sac, Stantonmuir, built in 1995, is a particularly impressive house approached via a private tree lined driveway with substantial gates opening to a broad parking sweep.
