This stylishly designed first-floor studio flat, part of a C-listed development, boasts spacious open-plan living, with a separate kitchen and a sunny balcony. It additionally enjoys landscaped grounds, a large store, and private residents' parking.
Situated just a short stroll from Edinburgh's bustling city centre, it offers a perfect residence in a prime location. Furthermore, the property is part of a post-war (circa 1960) modernist housing scheme by renowned architect Sir Basil Spence; the home is cleverly designed and beautifully appointed to maximise every part of its spacious floorplan.
The private, first-floor front door welcomes you into a broad hallway, with useful alcove space for seating or storage. Enhancing a greater sense of space and light, the contemporary décor includes crisp white walls offset by a rich-toned timber- styled floor, which flows through the accommodation. In the open-plan living/ dining room/bedroom, the generously proportioned floor space is thoughtfully designed to create distinct areas for living and sleeping. It offers ample room for a configuration of comfortable lounge and dining furniture, creating a perfect social space for relaxing, entertaining, and dining. A large window frames an elevated view, besides which is a covered balcony, enjoying a sunny aspect and space for seating to unwind outside whatever the weather. The sleeping area, meanwhile, incorporates curtained panels that can be drawn for privacy. It boasts ample room for a double bed and a sweep of fitted wardrobes.
The adjoining kitchen has an extensive range of cabinets in pale-wood tones, paired with contrasting stainless-steel fittings and granite-styled worktops. Soft grey and black tiled splashbacks complete the modern look. A gas hob and oven are neatly integrated, with two fitted cupboards for further storage, and space for a washing machine, dishwasher, and fridge-freezer. Also offering additional storage, the contemporary three-piece bathroom (enveloped with crisp white tiling) comes complete with a corner bath and an overhead electric shower. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing, ensuring year-round comfort.
Externally, the city flat has a landscaped communal garden, offering a green haven in the heart of the city. The property further boasts a large private store for outdoor equipment. There is also private residents' parking within the development. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, blinds, integrated and freestanding appliances are included in the sale.
