Situated in an enviable location in the heart of fashionable Stockbridge, this traditional one-bedroom (plus box room) second- floor flat boasts versatile accommodation with well-presented neutral interiors, desirable period features, and an open leafy outlook.
Furthermore, the city flat has an unrivalled position in Stockbridge, just a stone's throw from independent shops, trendy bars, Michelin-starred restaurants, and idyllic outdoor spaces like the Water of Leith and Inverleith Park.
Reached via a secure communal entrance and shared stairwell, the flat's front door opens to a welcoming hallway, setting the tone for the accommodation to follow. Here, a soaring ceiling is complemented by soft décor, crisp white panelled doors, and a comfortable carpet, which flows through to an elegant living room. This reception room, for unwinding and socialising, offers generous floor space for a good selection of relaxing furniture. It continues the neutral décor of the hall, but with added period details in crisp white, emphasising the attractive features, from decorative cornicing, to an open Edinburgh Press, and a tiled feature fireplace. For illumination, two large sash windows see lots of natural light and sweeping views to Inverleith Park.
Next door, the spacious dining kitchen is an additional social space, with ample room for a large table below a south-facing window. It comes fitted with a sweep of Shaker-inspired cabinets in clotted-cream, with contrasting wood-toned worktops and complementary splashback panels. It further incorporates ample storage, plus a deep larder cupboard, and space for a cooker, washing machine, and fridge-freezer.
The double bedroom is at the front of the home, enjoying an airy aspect and plenty of room for freestanding furniture. It shares the elegant décor and the home's exacting standards for a warm and inviting atmosphere. Sat adjacent, drawing natural light from the bedroom, a versatile box room features a high-level cabin bed, with space below for a desk, giving rise to a perfect study and occasional guest bedroom. Finishing the city flat, a bright modern bathroom, including an overhead shower, is presented in crisp white. Gas central heating ensures year-round comfort.
Externally, this versatile property has access to a south-facing communal garden, which has been paved and gravelled for easy maintenance. Controlled parking is also available in the surrounding streets with a residents' permit (Zone N3).
