Features & Description
Two-bedroom flat on picturesque cobble- stone street.
With an enviable position in the West End, just a stone's throw from Haymarket train station and Princes Street, this two-bedroom (plus box room) second/top-floor flat forms part of a row of charming C-listed buildings situated on a picturesque cobble-stone street.
Built in the late Victorian era, the sandstone and ashlar tenement boasts generous accommodation and classical proportions, the insides of the flat presented largely in neutral tones and with modern fixtures and fittings (although a couple of rooms require a slight modernising touch).
With a secure communal entrance and stairwell, the home's front door opens into a broad hall for coats and shoes. On the right is the living room, which is generously proportioned and filled with natural light from a southwest-facing window. This reception area accommodates a wide selection of comfortable lounge furniture, creating an ideal space for relaxing and socialising. Soft neutral décor enhances an airy atmosphere, whilst a feature fireplace (beside a display cupboard) frames the room with a focal point.
In the dining kitchen, wood-toned base and wall cabinets come paired with chunky stone-effect worktops and complementary splashback tiles
The modern L-shaped design incorporates a range of integrated appliances (ceramic hob, raised electric oven, microwave, and washing machine), and a new freestanding fridge. It also has room for a dining table for sociable dinner parties and comes with a traditional clothes pulley and a pantry-style cupboard. Furthermore, a sizeable box room is accessed from here, providing a flexible space for creative use. Located to the rear and to the front respectively, bedroom one and two are both presented in matching pastel tones. The first bedroom is a comfortable double with a fitted wardrobe, whereas the second is a large single with a south-westerly outlook and versatile proportions for alternative use, such as an office. A two-piece WC and a separate shower room, enveloped in attractive sandy- toned tiling, complete the home. Double-glazed windows and electric heating ensure year-round comfort. Outside, there is a communal front garden and controlled parking with a residents' permit (Zone S4). Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated kitchen appliances to be included in the sale. Additional furnishings are available upon request. EPC Rating: F.
