Croston Lodge is a very impressive detached house situated in the heart of The Grange, with up to 10 bedrooms, off street parking and private front and rear gardens. The house is entered through a grand entrance hallway that has several period features and from which all the ground floor accommodation is accessed from. The property is full of period features throughout including ornate cornicing, wooden floorboards, a stain glass window on the stairwell, large fireplaces, bay windows, working shutters, a ceiling rose and beautiful Victorian mosaic and tiles in the hallway. Just off the hallway to the front of the house, there is a formal drawing room and a fantastic entertaining space in the large sitting room and dining room which has triple aspect to the front, side and rear. Elsewhere on the ground floor, there is an extension to the rear which is currently used as a family room with double doors out into the garden. The kitchen/ breakfasting room has granite work surfaces, oak fitted cupboards and wall units as well as a pleasant outlook into the garden. From the kitchen there is a hallway with a separate utility room, storage cupboard, back door to the garden and a staircase leading to a maids bedroom that could alternatively be used as a quiet and private study away from the distractions of the heart of the house. Lastly, on the ground floor there is a double bedroom with Jack and Jill en suite.

The stairs leading to the first floor are bathed in natural light from the stain glass window and provide access to the four double bedrooms (1 en suite) and a family bathroom. The master bedroom also benefits from a dressing room. There is another set of stairs that leads to the second floor which could be used as a self contained flat with a kitchen, two bedrooms, a shower room and a lovely sitting room area. The upstairs floors both boast superb views towards Arthur’s Seat

Externally, the property is entered from the street through a pedestrian gate or secure electronic gates on to the off street parking. There is both a front and a south west facing rear garden that has been well maintained and is surrounded by a stone wall.

Situation

Chalmers Crescent is pleasantly situated within one of Edinburgh’s most desirable areas, The Grange, which lies approximately 1 mile south of the city centre. The city offers an extensive range of cultural activities and a wealth of designer shops, restaurants, pubs, bars and theatres, with the world renowned Edinburgh International Festival of the Arts held every August. There is excellent local shopping at both Morningside and Bruntsfield and a supermarket complex at Cameron Toll. For the outdoor enthusiast there are a wealth of opportunities, with a range of golf courses locally, including the oldest golfing society in the world, The Royal Burgess, and the oldest golf clubhouse at Bruntsfield Links as well as St Andrews (49 miles) and Gleneagles (40 miles). There are beautiful walks along the Firth of Forth towards Dalmeny House and sailing opportunities at nearby Cramond and South Queensferry. A further benefit would be Warrender Victorian swimming baths which are in close proximity as well as the Commonwealth Pool which is less than a mile away. Local schooling is excellent, falling within the catchment area for James Gillespie Primary and High Schools as well as many of Edinburgh’s finest private schools locally such as Merchiston Castle School, George Watsons College, Mary Erskine School, Stewart Melville College, St George’s School and Fettes College.
