23c/5 Gayfield Square, Edinburgh EH1 3NX
Enviably situated in a prime location at the eastern end of Edinburgh's prestigious New Town, this spacious two-bedroom, first floor flat boasts beautifully proportioned, contemporary open-plan living spread over 730sq. feet, with fresh, neutral décor a perfect blank palette for a new owner. Forming part of a modern Georgian- style building, nestled quietly within an elegant Georgian square surrounding a shared community garden, Gayfield Square is only a short stroll from the city centre, Elm Row and bustling Broughton Street, all offering a wealth of shops, bars, and eateries, it is the epitome of an idyllic Edinburgh city lifestyle.
Forming part of a modern development, with a pale sandstone frontage offering instant kerb appeal the flat is set quietly back from the pavement behind a wrought iron railing and is entered via a secure communal door. The welcoming entrance foyer in turn offers access (including via a lift) to the private entrance on the first floor, and into the long, airy reception hall. Here, the tone is set by soft neutral décor, and comfortable carpeting, which flows through the accommodation - a blank canvas for the new owner to put their own stamp on the property.
Directly ahead leads into the living room, an elegant space with an open rear aspect framed by a traditionally styled, large twelve- pane sash window. This beautifully proportioned room gives rise to ample space for a choice of comfortable seating and dining furniture, creating a perfect space for relaxing and entertaining, away from the bustle of city life. Separated by a half wall - a stylish broken-plan design - the room flows into the adjoining farmhouse-style dining kitchen. This cleverly designed space incorporates an area for a dining table and chairs, forming a natural flow between the two rooms, and perfect for socialising whilst cooking. Lit by a further large sash window, and with a practical wood-styled floor, the kitchen area incorporates a range of pale Shaker floor and wall mounted units, with a contrasting marble-styled worktop and warm-toned tiled splashback, neatly incorporating an integrated gas hob, oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The two double bedrooms, also offering the restful neutral décor, each boast similar proportions, and generous space for freestanding bedroom furniture, augmented by a fitted double wardrobe with luxurious mirrored doors. They share a modern, three-piece family bathroom, with a white suite including a bath with an electric shower over, and a WC-suite. Finally, a hall cupboard completes the generous, well designed accommodation in this ideal city centre dwelling. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and conservation-style double glazed windows, ensuring year-round warmth and comfort.
Externally, the classically designed Gayfield Square boasts a large, central communal garden, an ideal, leafy space for relaxing whilst enjoying the flow of city life. Calton Hill, with its open views of the city skyline, is just a short stroll away. There is controlled parking, with residents' permit (Zone 6) in the square and surrounding areas.
