12 Inverleith Place is an exceptional and substantial grey sandstone semi-detached house located in the respected and highly desirable Inverleith Conservation Area. Built in 1897, this well-preserved and decorated property retains many unique period features, specifically; natural woodwork, fireplaces and detailed cornice-work. It is a large, comfortable home providing flexible accommodation for a growing family and well-suited to people who work from home.
The house is entered through a vestibule with traditional tiled floor. An original, glazed inner-door opens to the spacious and welcoming hall with a beautiful natural-wood staircase (leading to the upper floors), a large shelved storage cupboard and access to the main cellar. There is a cloakroom, with WC and wash-hand basin, facing the front of the house.
The drawing room is spacious with many original features. There is detailed cornice work, bay window (facing south overlooking the front garden), a working traditional fireplace and an “Edinburgh Press.”
The formal dining room is located just-off the hallway. It has a working fireplace, attractive period cornicing and a window overlooking the side gardens. The room offers a fantastic space for more formal entertaining.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of floor and wall-fitted units with appliances, including an Aga and Neff Oven, as well as ample space for a good-sized dining table. A window and door to the rear provide both access and views over the gardens.
A study is found at the rear of the property and is a good-sized space.
There is a handy utility room with Belfast Sink, shelving, overhead drying rack, washing machine and tumble dryer. Also on the ground floor is a large shower room with walk-in shower, toilet and wash-hand basin.
Access to the larger of two basements can be found from the hallway underneath the staircase. This full head height basement space is currently shelved for storage and is an extensive space that is set-out as large separate rooms; one used as a workshop and wine cellar and the other is currently used as storage space. This space offers lots of potential and could be developed for other purposes; such as a gym. The other basement space is below the kitchen and accessed from outside. It contains the new modern boiler and a large hot water storage tank.
The beautiful natural-wood staircase leads up to the first floor, where one will find four of the six bedrooms in the property. The original cupola gives plenty of natural light to the staircase.
Double bedroom 1 is a bright room with a large bay window, facing south, that could be used as a second drawing room. Double bedroom 2 is situated to the rear with a window, facing north, traditional Edinburgh Press which contains a wash-hand basin, and a traditional attractively tiled fireplace. Double bedroom 3 is also located to the rear of the property, with north-facing aspect, and features an en-suite shower room that has been fitted with disabled access in mind. Double bedroom 4 is situated to the front, with south-facing outlook, and is currently used as a second study.
The family bathroom, situated just off the hallway, has a bath with shower above, WC and wash-hand basin. A shelved linen cupboard completes the first floor space.
From the first floor there is a further staircase leading to the second floor that has a Velux window at the top of the stairs. Two further bedrooms are found on this floor. Double bedroom 5 is a generous bedroom with a large Velux window, facing north. Double bedroom 6 also has a large Velux window, facing west.
The second family bathroom is also found on this floor and has two light tubes providing natural light. There is a standing shower, over the Jacuzzi bath, WC and wash-hand basin.
The garden areas are situated mainly to the side of the property with slabbed section to the front. Lawn spaces are coupled with planted areas containing a wide variety of mature trees, shrubs and seasonal plants. High walls surround the garden ensuring privacy. A further paved area, alongside the back lawn, provides a sunny corner for outdoor dining. To the rear is a storage shed that provides further access to the second basement, which, again, has fantastic storage. Wooden gates allow access to a driveway, which leads to a courtyard area providing off-road parking for up to six cars.
