3/2 Kirk Street, Edinburgh EH6 5EX
This traditional three-bedroom flat is set on the second floor of a B-Listed Georgian tenement, quietly located on Kirk Street in Edinburgh's fashionable Leith district, and within strolling distance of vibrant Leith walk and the cosmopolitan Shore. Boasting classically-proportioned interiors, a wealth of period features, elegant styling and sympathetic contemporary design, the characterful flat is accompanied by a shared courtyard and unrestricted parking, and represents an outstanding city home.
Accessed via a secure shared entrance and a traditional stairwell, the front door opens into an airy, high-ceilinged entrance hall where stripped pine flooring and neutral décor make a wonderful first impression. Accompanied by built-in storage, this welcoming space flows towards an impressive living room where three tall sash and case windows (with original shutters) yield wonderful dual- aspect views of the surrounding city architecture. The reception room's elegant proportions are enhanced by a lofty ceiling with decorative cornicing, whilst classic olive-green décor combined with the warmth of natural wood flooring creates a sympathetic backdrop and a relaxing ambience.
Returning back along the hall, a dining kitchen provides a lovely setting for family meals and entertaining, offering generous floorspace for a large dining table and chairs and enjoying an abundance of light from a large sash and case window. Modern black splashback and floor tiling add a contemporary element to this delightfully airy space which is beautifully appointed with a range of light wood-inspired cabinets, paired with stylish granite-inspired worktops. Further equipping the design is a freestanding cooker, whilst space is provided for a fridge/ freezer, a washing machine and a dryer, and additional storage is provided by a traditional press.
Also located in the flat are three well- presented double bedrooms, all plushly carpeted for optimum comfort. Echoing the charming period features of the reception room, all three bedrooms are enhanced by traditional ceiling cornicing detail and sash and case windows with working shutters. The magnificent principal bedroom enjoys notably impressive proportions and significant natural light, beautifully enhanced by neutral décor and understated styling. The generous footprint of this characterful bedroom promises superb flexibility for comfortable arrangements of bedroom furniture. The second bedroom, stylishly presented in navy-blue, also benefits from generous proportions and provides ample floorspace for both bedroom and home office furnishings. The remaining, colourfully-styled bedroom, currently arranged as a nursery, promises a cosy double bedroom setting with versatile floorspace and options for use. Completing the appealing accommodation is a contemporary shower room. Enveloped in soft-toned tiling with a chic mosaic accent, the deluxe shower room features a glazed, corner shower cubicle, a modern WC-suite and a large ladder-style radiator. Gas central heating is found throughout the property, ensuring year-round comfort and efficiency.
