Flat | 3 Bedrooms
Located in the very heart of the New Town conservation area, with unrivalled views of Edinburgh Castle, this Georgian three/four-bedroom, two-bathroom third-floor duplex flat boasts one of the capital's most exclusive addresses; situated on the wide, cobbled Castle Street, with outstanding shopping and recreational amenities right on the doorstep.
The property is also just a stone's throw from the beautifully-maintained Princes Street Gardens and only a short stroll to Waverley train station. Forming part of a B-Listed building and featuring charming bowed windows, the flat retains much of its period authenticity, including traditional sash-and-case windows, whilst also being sympathetically bought up to date by immaculate muted interiors and tasteful contemporary finishes. With a generous and flexible assortment of rooms, the property will no doubt appeal to a wide range of buyers, including professionals, families and investors.
Accessed via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the flat opens into a spacious, well-lit hall housing useful storage. From here you step into a cosy, but spacious living room with a characterful curved frontage, breath-taking city views and the classic adornments of a dado rail and cornicing.
Next door, approached via exquisite folding doors, is an outstandingly generous living/dining area, currently utilised as a master bedroom and lit by a handsome southerly-facing shuttered window. Cornicing, a dado rail, extensive fitted shelving and an elegant period fireplace further enhance the magnificent room. Both reception areas also house useful built-in storage. Also benefiting from the afternoon sun is a kitchen fitted around a sociable central dining area. Set against glossy black wall tiling, an array of contemporary beech-effect cabinets and honey-coloured timber worktops is accompanied by an integrated dishwasher and an impressive freestanding range cooker coupled with a sleek, stainless-steel splashback and a statement chimney-style hood. Space for further freestanding goods, a built-in cupboard, a traditional clothes pulley and a shuttered window with a quaint window seat complete this appealing room. Also located on this level are two shower rooms and one of the three double bedrooms on offer, boasting a curved external wall and an enchanting stone-lined fireplace with an antique feature stove. The shower rooms are sophisticatedly presented in an identical fully-tiled finish, with one room retaining a period feature fireplace.
On the fourth floor, a landing (with excellent storage) affords access to the two remaining double bedrooms, both heightened by a sunny southerly-facing aspect. The bedroom to the front of the property includes the distinctive touches of a richly-toned exposed beam and a feature fireplace, as well as handy fitted shelving. The property is heated via gas central heating system, whilst, externally, controlled on-street parking falls under Zone 1A.
Situated in a conservation area in the New Town, Castle 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.
