Outstanding two bedroom apartment in the Grange conservation area
Situated in the Grange conservation area in highly sought-after Morningside, this outstanding main-door apartment on the ground floor forms part of a modern conversion of the former St Peter's Primary School, an impressive C-listed building built in 1909.
The beautifully-presented home provides a luxurious urban lifestyle in one of Edinburgh's most desirable postcodes, boasting two double bedrooms (plus an en-suite), generous open-plan living accommodation, and a contemporary integrated kitchen, further benefitting from private and communal gardens, as well as private residents' parking and a large communal foyer for socialising with neighbours.
Inside, the home's front door opens into an inviting hallway that immediately sets the high standards of accommodation with its neutral décor and engineered oak flooring attractive features found throughout much of the home. It flows directly into the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, which generously spans the entire width of the property, accommodating comfortable lounge furniture and a table for congenial dinner parties.
Dual-aspect glazing, including a full-height feature window of frosted square glass, bathes the space in warm afternoon sun, amplifying a tranquil ambience for everyday use. The kitchen itself is arranged along the back wall in an L-shape, marked by a floating island with a breakfast bar for morning coffee. It is fitted with cream-coloured cabinets, enhancing the sense of space, and chunky down-lit worktops in wood effect, adding a sleek line and a welcomed splash of colour. On-trend metro splashback tiles and a full range of integrated appliances (gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher) reinforce the contemporary, streamlined design. A separate utility room provides additional storage and a quiet place for laundry.
Located side-by-side are the two double bedrooms. With the larger proportions, the cosily carpeted master bedroom boasts a fitted wardrobe and a luxurious en-suite shower room enveloped in gleaming tiles. Meanwhile, the second bedroom, with engineered oak flooring, enjoys dual-aspect windows for added light, as well as fitted cupboards and shelving for books and display items. Completing this impressive home is a modern three-piece family bathroom, with a shower-over- bath, presented in a matching style to the en-suite. Efficient gas central heating ensures year-round warmth, whilst traditional sash-and-case windows bring period character. A fully-floored attic, with electricity, provides excellent storage.
Outside, the apartment benefits from a private potting garden to the front for summer dining, and to a large, fully-enclosed communal garden. Private residents' parking is also provided via a secure, gated car .
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, select light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and a washer and dryer to be included in the sale. The two Italian chandeliers in the living room are available by separate negotiation. EPC Rating: D.
Morningside is a fashionable and affluent suburb of Edinburgh that lies just southwest of the city centre. A wide variety of cafés, restaurants, coffee houses, bistros, independent shops, galleries, boutiques, a luxury cinema, theatres, banks, a library, and various supermarkets (including Waitrose and M&S), are all on your doorstep.
Enjoying the outdoors couldn't be easier, given the proximity of the lovely green areas of Braidburn Valley Park (awarded Scotland's first Green Flag for excellence in parks), Colinton Mains Park, and Blackford Hill, which offers delightful walks and superb views across Edinburgh. The Pentland Hills Regional Park is a short drive away and offers walking, biking, pony-trekking, and skiing at Midlothian Snowsports Centre. For the active type, Craiglockhart Leisure Centre is nearby and offers a gym, fitness classes, and a tennis centre.
