28/10 Barony Street, Edinburgh EH3 6NY
Forming part of an handsome Georgian building on quaintly-cobbled Barony Street, in the New Town conservation area, this two-bedroom third/ top-floor flat boasts beautiful, contemporary interiors perfectly married with a wealth of lovingly-preserved original features and all the airiness and generous proportions expected of a property of its time, to create a delightful city home in an enviable location.
Approached via a secure shared stairwell to the third/top floor, the flat's front door opens to reveal a generous, L-shaped hall with space for furniture items. With its soaring high ceiling, elegant cornicing, neutral décor and plush fitted carpet, the hall gives the first impression of the stunning accommodation to follow. Immediately on your right, you step into an impressive living and dining room. Filled with natural sunny light through twin recessed sash-and-case windows (with working shutters) framing views of Barony Street, this elegant reception area echoes the attractive neutral finish of the hall and offers ample space for furniture catering for both relaxation and dining. Further features of the room include a contemporary fireplace, an open Edinburgh Press with illuminated glass display shelving, beautifully-detailed cornicing, and a 5A lighting circuit. Continuing along the hall, you reach a kitchen. Illuminated by a skylight window and offering space for a bistro table and chairs, if desired, the kitchen is well-appointed with a selection of gloss- white cabinets framed by contrasting black worktops. A full complement of appliances is neatly integrated, namely an electric oven, a gas hob paired with a splashback panel, a gleaming extractor hood, a fridge/ freezer, a dishwasher, and a washing machine.
The flat accommodates two double bedrooms. Both sleeping areas incorporate excellent built-in storage and the larger of the two boasts a sunny south-facing aspect. Identical to the living and dining room, the bedrooms both enjoy neutral décor and cosy fitted carpets, and one features working window shutters. Finally, a contemporary bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a bathtub with an overhead shower, a folding glazed screen, and neutrally-toned wall tiling, a basin set into storage, a toilet, and a chrome towel warmer. The home is heated by a gas central heating system.
Externally, the flat benefits from access to a well- maintained, leafy shared rear garden. Controlled parking on Barony Street and in the vicinity falls under Zone 6. EPC Rating: D.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and bedroom wardrobes to be included in the sale.
