Edinburgh house with spacious garden meets market

A £2.1million EDINBURGH home is up for sale for the first time in more than 30 years.

Situated in what is considered one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious residential areas, Ravelston Lea is a detached historic property set in its own gated grounds.

Set back from Ravelston Dykes Road, the 3,456 sq ft family home is set over three floors and includes a conservatory, kitchen and breakfast room.

There is a large driveway to the front with a double garage and outbuildings for general storage.

Ravelston Lea is valued at £2.1million.

The rear of the house offers an expansive and professionally landscaped south facing garden bordering the grounds of Ravelston Golf Club.

Matthew Munro, real estate sales advisor at Simpson and Marwick, the law firm handling the sale, said: “Ravelston Lea is a superb property.

“The gardens have been maintained by the current owner of the property who has a keen interest in landscaping.

“The beautiful grounds make for the ideal outdoor space, especially with summer fast approaching.

“I would encourage anyone interested in this property to come and see for themselves as it really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.”

Located two miles from the town center and a short walk from Stockbridge, Ravelston Lea is surrounded by a range of local amenities, golf clubs, shops and supermarkets.

The area is also home to a wealth of excellent private and public sector schools such as Erskine Stewart’s Melville Schools, Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College.

Ravelston benefits from bus links to the city center and direct access to the main arteries to the city ring road, Edinburgh Airport, the Queensferry Crossing and the central motorway network.

Matthew added: “It’s the perfect place. The property is close to the hustle and bustle of city life, but being so secluded with its own private gated entrance really is the best of both worlds.

“This is a property that will make an incredible first impression, but there’s more to it than that – the spacious and cozy interior makes it a great choice for a family home.”

Simpson & Marwick traces its roots back to 1886, making it one of the most recognizable and trusted names in Edinburgh property.

With over 30 employees, the company has offices in Edinburgh and North Berwick, East Lothian, and has over 135 years of experience.
