Ravelston Park is located in a prestigious residential district just west of Edinburgh's city centre. Forming part of the Dean Conservation Area, it benefits from a lovely private leafy outlook, whilst being within easy reach of the city. There is an excellent range of local amenities available in the West End and Stockbridge as well as a retail park at Craigleith. Leisure facilities nearby include Edinburgh Sports Club and Ravelston and Murrayfield Golf Courses and wonderful outdoor spaces such as the Water of Leith Walkway, Edinburgh cycle path network and Inverleith Park. The Galleries of Modern Art and the Dean Village are on the doorstep. Stewarts Melville College and St Georges School are within walking distance, whilst Fettes College, Edinburgh Academy and The Mary Erskine School are also within easy reach.
No 6a Ravelston Park is an impressive and unique home, comprising the ground floor of this substantial detached Victorian villa, set privately within its own landscaped garden grounds. Dating from around 1885 and attributed to Kinnear and Peddie Architects, the property offers bright and beautifully proportioned rooms, flexible layout and a wealth of original features.
From the secure entrance gates a paved driveway leads to the front of the house. There is a welcoming vestibule with tiled floor, leading to the inner hall, off which are the main reception rooms. To the front is a formal sitting room with deep bay window and oak parquet floor, offering generously proportioned living space, and with a door leading to a sunny conservatory by Mozolowski and Murray. A further good sized room, with twin windows, is presently used as a bedroom. There is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom quietly located to the rear, an additional double bedroom, single bedroom/study, and a family shower room. The sunny breakfasting kitchen has been recently refitted with specially commissioned fitted units. A door from here links to the dining room. There is a separate utility room, and a number of useful storage cupboards, completing the generous accommodation.
Outside, the south-west facing garden is divided into paved areas bounded by planted borders with a delightful range of shrubs and climbers, and an ornamental pond. There is ample off street parking, whilst a single garage with up and over door also offers additional outside storage.
