A beautiful b-listed family home in prestigious enclave.
17 Mirrlees Drive is a superb B Listed family home designed by the architect John A Campbell and built in 1906. This mid terrace home is constructed of blonde sandstone under a slate roof and offers spacious accommodation over three levels with plenty on street and off street parking within garage.
In its current configuration the home begins with a welcoming reception hallway with an impressive staircase leading upstairs, parquet flooring, wood panelling and a beautiful fireplace. The panelling and parquet continue through to the sitting room which has a lovely bay window looking to the front and the striking drawing room facing to the rear. Both rooms have many fine original features. The exceptional kitchen/dining room is located to the rear and is well appointed with a range of floor and wall mounted cabinetry, breakfast island, built in appliances and plenty of space for dining.
Downstairs, the property benefits from an excellent home office, cinema room, utility room and garage that can be accessed from Mirrlees Lane behind the property.
The broad staircase allows access to the upper landing which is illuminated by a beautifully maintained stained glass cupola. Off the landing is the luxurious principal bedroom with tasteful en suite shower, two further substantial double bedrooms and the family bathroom.
Externally, to the front of the property is an attractive enclosed garden.
