Nestled within the New Town conservation area, Carlton Terrace enjoys a prime location in one of Edinburgh's most prestigious locations.
Its excellent situation promises residents the finest amenities the capital has to offer, all within easy walking distance. On your doorstep you will find a superb choice of top-rated restaurants, cafés, fashionable bars and clusters of small speciality shops. The New Town is the home of luxury shopping, with premium retailers such as Harvey Nichols and Jenners, plus designer stores on Multrees Walk at St Andrew Square. Princes Street and George Street are lined with all the high-street favourites, while nearby Meadowbank Shopping Park boasts a Sainsbury's supermarket, an M&S outlet and a TK Maxx store. The £1 billion St James Centre development, which is scheduled for completion in 2021, will also create a world-class retail and leisure hub on the eastern edge of the New Town. A selection of some of Scotland's finest art galleries including the National Portrait Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish National Galleries are all in close proximity. The property falls within the catchment area for Abbeyhill Primary School and Drummond Community High School and is also well-placed for a choice of prestigious independent schools. Carlton Terrace is a fantastic base for exploring the city on foot, and is also just minutes' walk from Waverley train station and a dense network of public transport links, including the tram to Edinburgh Airport.
Freshly renovated within the last two years, the flat effortlessly blends period features with fresh, heritage-inspired décor and is presented to a standard seldom seen on the open market. Rarer still is the south-facing private garden to the rear, which afforded outstanding seclusion and tranquillity by high stone walls. The address is also eligible for private membership to Regent, Royal and Carlton Terrace Gardens, subject to an annual subscription.
With its polished ashlar facade, balustered parapet and cast-iron balconettes and railings, the terraced townhouse exudes all the charm and grandeur of the Georgian age. Behind the imposing front door is a breathtaking shared entrance hall with original floor tiles and Grecian-inspired cornices and moulding.
The subject of the sale is accessed on the ground floor and welcoming you inside is a good-sized hall with a useful cupboard. On this level is the first of two double bedrooms, which benefits from a front- facing outlook across cobbled Carlton Terrace. The carpeted staircase winds down to the lower ground floor and flows into the south-facing living/dining room, whose oak-effect flooring, deep blue walls and traditional marble fireplace (with a living-flame gas fire) instantly create a cosy ambience. The spacious conservatory just off the living/dining room is bathed in all-day sun courtesy of triple-aspect windows to the south, east and west, and offers another versatile reception room with direct access to the private garden. The contemporary grey Shaker-style kitchen (with soft-close doors/drawers and interior lighting) is topped with solid quartz and is replete with an integrated induction hob, oven/grill, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. The second double bedroom on this level also boasts a southerly aspect overlooking the tranquil rear garden and benefits from direct access to the conservatory. Completing the accommodation is the ultra-stylish shower room. Vibrant pink floor tiles and gleaming whiite wall tiles laid in a chic herringbone pattern provide a stunning backdrop for the luxurious walk-in shower and solid marble washbasin atop a walnut vanity unit. Owing to its A-listed status the flat has retained original timber-framed sash windows, one of which boasts classic shutters. Gas-fired central heating ensures year-round comfort and efficiency. EPC Rating - C. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, curtains and light fixtures to be included in the sale.
