The property is entered through a vestibule that opens into a large hallway off which the ground floor accommodation is accessed.There is a sitting room with dual aspect, a guest double bedroom with its own bathroom, a stylish shower room, a laundry room and steps leading down to an extension with an amazing open plan kitchen/dining room/family room. The kitchen benefits from quartz work tops, a solid oak breakfast bar, top of the range Neff and Bosch integrated appliances and a 28 bottle two-zone wine cooler.
Upstairs is the master bedroom with en suite shower, a further two double bedrooms and a large bathroom. There is a lovely view to the south looking towards the Pentland Hills at this level. The bathrooms are bespoke designed with high end fittings including Porcelenosa tiles, Kohler, Burlington and Bauhaus furniture. The property benefits from a wealth of period features including ornate cornice, ceiling roses, a fire place, a bay window, a stain glass feature window, original tiles in the vestibule and working window shutters. The refurbishment has seen the property fitted with state of the art technology including 3-zone Sonos, high speed fibre and wiring for TVs, a Dolby 5.1 home cinema system and an adaptive Nest central
heating control system that can be operated

Forrester Road is approximately 3 miles from the city centre in the heart of Corstorphine. The location is ideally placed for access to the city’s business and financial centres, as well as Edinburgh International Airport, Haymarket Railway Station and Murrayfield Stadium. A number of local shops, bars and restaurants are situated close by in Corstorphine, including a Tesco Extra just moments away, and a more comprehensive offering is only a short drive away at the Gyle Centre. There are many pleasant walks nearby on Corstorphine Hill and along The Water of Leith. Forrester Road is close to excellent schools in both the state and private sector, particularly St George’s School, Stewarts Melville College, The Mary Erskine School, Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy.
Externally, the property benefits from a thoughtfully planted garden, front and rear, which is low maintenance but with a range of plants that ensures there is colour on show all year round. The plants include a variety of fruit trees and bushes, providing cherries, raspberries and wild strawberries in the summer and sweet, crispy apples in the autumn. The twin driveways offer off street parking for several cars, and there is a double garage with remote-controlled drive-up access and various garden stores for tools, bikes and garden furniture.
