1 Portland Terrace, Edinburgh EH6 6JZ
Part of a B-listed Georgian tenement building (circa 1821), this traditional two-bedroom main-door (ground-floor) flat boasts generous and airy accommodation, with both contemporary and classically styled interiors, and restored period features, such as 12-pane timber sash and case windows.
Situated in one of Edinburgh's most sought-after areas, The Shore, this outstanding home offers a luxurious city lifestyle in a location to match.
The flat is reached by a flight of stone steps to a raised terrace with traditional railings. From here, the private main door opens into a vestibule with a lunette window set above a glazed door. The striking décor and Georgian styling create a fabulous first impression and an inspiring welcome, one that is further heightened by the reception hall with its Georgian archway with decorative plasterwork. Laminate flooring adds a warm honey-colour to the invitation, whilst a large walk-in cupboard provides convenient storage. On the left is the very generous living room, which also incorporates another deep storage cupboard. Here, heritage panelling and pastel tones complements the Art Nouveau- inspired wallpaper, highlighting the delightful curved interior wall, which frames a sash window with traditional working shutters. Ornate cornicing and an elegant ceiling rose, add the final flourishes to this regal and sumptuous space. Next door, the modern dining kitchen enjoys rich monochrome fixtures, fitted with cream cabinetry and black granite worktops. Natural stone-styled mosaic splashbacks bring extra definition, colour, and texturing to the kitchen, which is further bolstered by Amtico flooring and contemporary décor. It is a smartly designed area that is well-defined by a floating island, lit by low-hanging pendant lights and incorporating a breakfast bar for relaxed dining and morning coffee. Seamlessly integrated appliances complete the sophisticated design, including: a five-burner gas hob, an eye-level electric Neff oven and combi microwave/oven, a fridge-freezer, and a washing machine. There is also an undercounter dishwasher and two built-in pantry cupboards.
This city home comes with two spacious double bedrooms that enjoy a bright and airy atmosphere due to high ceilings adorned with decorative cornicing and charming sash windows, allowing lots of natural light in. The first bedroom is presented in light blue with a patterned feature wall, offering a large fitted wardrobe with frosted glass doors and spotlights. The second bedroom has light yellow and deep red décor separated by a dado rail, with a vintage floral carpet completing the classical style. Finally, a stylish bathroom comes with contemporary tiling, dry underfloor heating for cosiness, and a luxury four-piece suite that includes an opulent corner bathtub. Traditional sash and case windows with slim line double glazing (except in the kitchen) offer period charm and efficiency, whilst a gas central heating system (via a recently- installed combi-boiler) provides year round comfort.
Outside, a rear communal garden enjoys a patio for alfresco dining and colourful leafy greens for an attractive ambience. Unrestricted on-street parking is within the area, although a private parking space can be rented for a modest fee from Britannia Quay across the road. There is also a secure basement cellar for storage.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, selected light fittings, integrated appliances, and a dishwasher to be included in the sale.
The Shore is a vibrant and cosmopolitan suburb of the city and has in recent years become one of the most sought-after areas in Edinburgh. It offers many bars, cafés, and a wide selection of restaurants (with no less than 3 boasting Michelin Star status), delis and fast food outlets.
Arranged around the Water of Leith, The Leith Docks and the Firth of Forth, The Shore is where you'll find Edinburgh's café culture, with outside seating areas ideal for dining alfresco or enjoying late afternoon cocktails while the sun sets over the water.
