Situated in a conservation area in the New Town, Broughton Street enjoys a prime location in one of Edinburgh's most prestigious postcodes.
Its excellent situation offers residents the finest amenities the capital has to offer, all within easy walking distance. On your doorstep you will find a superb choice of top-rated restaurants, cafés, fashionable bars and clusters of boutiques and speciality shops. The New Town hosts world- class shopping outlets including Harvey Nichols, Jenners and Multrees Walk at St. Andrew Square, while Princes Street is lined with all the top name high- street retailers. Broughton Street and nearby Stockbridge both offer a unique village atmosphere and the independent outlets here are arguably some of the best in the country. For days out, picnics or scenic walks the tranquil Water of Leith at Stockbridge and the colourful Royal Botanic Gardens are both only a short walk away. Edinburgh boasts some of the best private schools in the country: both Fettes College and Edinburgh Academy are within easy reach from the property. For commuting to any part of the city or other parts of the country, the New Town offers an abundance of public transport services, including the tramline from nearby York Place all the way to the airport.
Enjoying all the quintessential grandeur of a Georgian New Town home, this two- bedroom, two-bathroom (plus a versatile study) second-floor flat lies just a short stroll from Princes Street and Waverley train station; along Broughton's main thoroughfare, dotted with fashionable bars, eateries and boutiques.
Set within a classical A-listed tenement, the flat promises an outstanding city abode with superbly generous rooms lit by authentic panelled sash-and-case windows and retaining a charming array of original features. The inclusion of two large living areas allows for the flexibility to create a three-bedroom property a tempting proposition for families and rental investors.
Accessed via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the flat opens into a wonderfully light and spacious hall with incorporated storage and a handy WC. Here the elegance of this period home is immediately apparent with its soaring ceiling, ornamented with intricate cornicing, a feature archway and well-preserved stripped flooring. The area also boasts crisp neutral décor, which eloquently flows through much of the accommodation. Flooded in natural light from double windows, which also provide a delightful vista of the surrounding area, is an impressive reception area providing ample space for comfortable furniture and seated dining. A sunny southwest-facing aspect, ornate cornicing and traditional wall panelling further accentuate this inviting space. Next door, a kitchen benefits from equally remarkable proportions, a magnificently-sized window and the decorative adornments of genuine cornicing and wall panelling.
Incorporating a seated dining area, the kitchen is perfectly designed for social gatherings, whilst a feature period stove brings an enchanting focal point to the room. A wealth of contemporary stark-white cabinets with chrome finishings accompanies extensive worktops, an integrated eye-level double oven and a sleek electric hob. A range of freestanding goods includes a washing machine, a dishwasher and a tall fridge freezer, and a built-in store cupboard offers extra storage. Also housed within this spectacular home are two spacious double bedrooms immaculately decorated and laid with timber-effect flooring. The southwest-facing master bedroom is supplemented by an en-suite shower room comprising a WC, a basin, a towel radiator and a shower enclosure. Accessible from the master bedroom, as well a gas central heating system.
Externally, controlled on-street parking falls under Zone 2. Residents of the area can also apply for access to the idyllic Queen Street Gardens, located just a short stroll from the property. EPC Rating - D.
