Property Details

57 Morningside Drive is a substantial semi-detached Victorian stone-built villa quietly situated off Comiston Road within the Plewlands Conservation Area. This particular area of Morningside offers a unique location that is just a short walk from the many superb shops, cafes and restaurants of Morningside and Comiston Road, yet is far enough away to offer a peaceful setting. 

With a sizeable extension, this wonderful home has been modified over the years to suit modern family living yet has retained many fine period features. On the ground floor, in the original part of the home, there is a traditional bay windowed living room with ornate cornicing, Edinburgh press, fireplace with working electric fire and side access door. A versatile room which would be a spacious double bedroom or home office and a contemporary shower room also form part of the original layout. The heart of the home is the superb open plan kitchen diner and family room. With floor to ceiling windows, sliding doors and skylights, the space is flooded with natural light and is kept warm with under floor heating and a wood burner in the adjoining, cosy family room. The open plan kitchen has an impressive island with hidden sockets, and is fitted with quality integrated appliances that include BOSCH oven, grill, warming drawer, microwave, five ring hob and dishwasher. A conveniently placed utility room is positioned off the kitchen and there is also a handy boot room.

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, the largest of which is particularly generous and has a bay window mirroring that of downstairs. A family bathroom with mosaic tiling serves the upstairs bedrooms and also provides access to the partially floored loft space which provides excellent storage to supplement the many storage cupboards around the home.

The beautiful, landscaped rear garden, which is fully enclosed, has a sunny south-facing aspect and features a lawn, deck, mature borders, apple and cherry trees, blueberry and raspberry bushes, garden shed and summerhouse. The private garden at the front of the property is extremely well-kept with a manicured hedge offering privacy from passers-by. A gated driveway to the side of the property provides off street parking for multiple vehicles and there is a single garage with electric up and over door and direct access into the home.

The property is fitted with gas central heating (boiler serviced annually) and predominantly double glazed timber sash and casement windows. The house has also been primed for the installation of solar panels.
