19 Brunton Place, Edinburgh EH7 5EJ
Enviably located on London Road in popular Hillside, this spacious two-bedroom (plus box room) main-door, ground-floor flat forms part of a stunning B-listed tenement (1883-1888) designed by the renowned Scottish architect, John Chesser. This polished ashlar building has huge significance, architecturally, for preserving and continuing the beautiful Greek Revival style in the New Town conservation area. The flat itself enjoys classical proportions and elegant period details, as well as an outstanding location within easy walking distance of the city centre and the bustling amenities of Leith. Whilst the property is traditionally-styled throughout, it represents a fantastic opportunity for new buyers to modernise the home to their own tastes and requirements. The home's front door, framed by Greek Doric pilasters, opens into a traditional vestibule, with period floor and wall tiling, and then into a long, classically-styled hall with two large storage cupboards. It also features a lofty period ceiling (enveloped by rich cornicing) and original, white painted, four-panel timber doors. Immediately to the left is the living room. This generously proportioned reception area affords a wide selection of comfortable lounge furniture, which can be arranged around a grand mantelpiece/feature fireplace. Overall, it is a wonderful space with the broad dimensions proving ideal for everyday use, whether relaxing, socialising, or entertaining. It also features desirable period details that would complement a variety of styles and designs, with lavish cornice work to emphasise the high ceiling, two Edinburgh Press-type cupboards for display items, and a south-facing sash window, detailed with an attractive stained glass motif, for a light and airy ambience. To the rear of the property, the dining kitchen has fantastic potential to become a contemporary centrepiece of the home. It offers a spacious floorplan to fit a broad sweep of cabinetry and complementary worktops, providing ample room for preparing meals. Beside a striking feature fireplace, there is also a sizeable recess, which could be used to house a dinner table and chairs for sociable dining and entertaining.
Two generous double bedrooms provide space for an array of bedside furnishings, alongside charming period fireplaces (currently inset with gas fires). The first bedroom offers the larger proportions and a peaceful rear-facing outlook, whilst the second bedroom has a front-facing aspect with further classical features for added decoration, from elaborate cornice work, to a sash window with colourful stained glass. In addition, a good-size box room provides new owners with a handy space for versatile use, whether as a study, a home office, or even a nursery. Completing the flat is a bright bathroom with a three-piece suite enveloped by tongue and groove panelling. Traditional sash and case windows bring additional period charm to the property, with gas central heating for warmth and comfort.
Outside, a well-tended communal garden is laid to lawn, with a handy drying green. It forms a delightful outdoor setting for socialising with friends in the summer, set against the striking backdrop of a B-listed, Victorian Gothic church. Controlled parking is available in the wider area with a residents' permit (Zone N1). EPC Rating - D.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window blinds, and selected light fittings to be included in the sale.
