24 Thorburn Road
24 Thorburn Road is a beautifully presented detached family home with a wonderful south west facing garden. The house offers flexible and generous accommodation over two floors which is ideal for entertaining and every day family life.
To the front of the house, a glazed porch gives access to a welcoming entrance hall and leads to all accommodation. A bay windowed family/dining room and bright double bedroom overlook the front garden. A cupola over the staircase floods the centre of the house with natural light, and there is useful storage located both off the hall and under the stairs. The rear of the property has been cleverly extended to create a superb kitchen which is open plan to a fabulous dining/living room with sliding glazed doors giving direct access to the rear garden. A separate good sized utility room is ideal for laundry and also houses the boiler. There is also a bedroom quietly positioned at the side of the house and a generous ground floor shower room/W.C.
Upstairs, a spacious landing gives access to three double bedrooms (one en suite) and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is a superb suite quietly positioned to the rear of the house. In addition to a wonderful outlook over the garden, it also boasts a generous dressing room, complete with walk in wardrobe and a smart en suite shower room. The master and dressing room each benefit from full floor to ceiling Velux windows which also incorporate a clever "balcony" option. The two further bedrooms are of good proportions with one benefiting from a small playroom/study off.
Externally, there is a single garage and off-street parking to the front. To the rear, a delightful south west facing garden, mainly laid to lawn with planted borders and a stone paved patio area complete the property.
Located approximately four and half miles south west of the city, Thorburn Road runs off Colinton Road and is ideally situated in the popular residential suburb of Colinton Village.
Historic Colinton still retains much of its village charm and offers a good selection of amenities including local shops, restaurants, village pubs, a bank, post office and a convenience store, whilst all larger supermarkets are within easy reach. The property has easy access to some delightful open green space, including The Pentland Hills, The Water of Leith Walkway and Craiglockhart Hill. Recreational facilities are available at nearby Craiglockhart Sports Centre, which boasts a gym, outdoor and indoor tennis courts, badminton and squash courts, whilst Nuffield Health at Chesser offers a gym, spa and leisure facilities. A number of excellent golf courses are nearby, including Kingsknowe, Baberton, The Merchants of Edinburgh and Dalmahoy.
The City centre, by-pass, Central Scotland motorway network and Edinburgh Airport are all easily accessible by car and a frequent bus service from Redford Road and Colinton Road provides access to the city centre by bus. There are a number of well regarded public and private schools close by, at nursery, primary and secondary level, including Bonaly Primary School, Merchiston Castle School, Rudolph Steiner School and George Watson's College. Edinburgh, Napier and Heriot Watt Universities all have campuses which are within east reach.
