Features & Description
Two-bedroom tenement flat in a classical B-listed New Town building.
Enviably situated in the New Town conservation area within easy walking distance of the city centre and world-class amenities, this traditional, two-bedroom, second-floor flat forms part of a classical, B-listed, corner tenement, built circa 1867.
The property represents an ideal home for city professionals and small families alike, boasting generous dimensions and a mixture of modern and traditional- styled interiors that suit the character of the classical accommodation and the well-retained period features. Furthermore, the charming home enjoys numerous sash windows for a light-filled ambience and superb elevated views across the New Town.
With a unique convex curved frontage in sandstone ashlar, the traditional tenement instantly impresses. Inside, a secure shared entrance opens to a well-maintained stairwell leading to the second-floor flat, the front door of which opens into a broad reception hall with deep storage for coats, shoes, and other belongings. Painted wooden floorboards (found throughout much of the city flat) and William Morris-inspired wallpaper create a striking welcome, which leads into the living room on the left. Here, the classical proportions immediately catch the eye, with the lavish cornice work drawing focus to the impeccably high ceiling.
Bright décor and white detailing add to the airy ambience, whilst two traditional sash windows, with working wooden shutters, bathe the space in natural light. Meanwhile, an extravagant period fireplace frames the room, providing a unique focal point for arranging a wide selection of comfortable lounge furniture. Built-in storage and a vintage chandelier add the final touches to this generous reception space. On the opposite side of the hall, the dining kitchen sports two substantial built-in cupboards and plenty of room for a table and chairs for sociable dinner parties. It comes well-appointed with cream-coloured cabinets and complementary worktops, housing an integrated gas hob and oven, and a freestanding dishwasher and a tall fridge/ freezer. A separate utility cupboard in the hall has plumbing for a washing machine.
Located side-by-side are two spacious double bedrooms, one with pale décor and built-in storage, the other with floral wallpaper. Both rooms are bright and airy, with plenty of space for bedside furnishings. Finishing the home is a large, naturally-lit bathroom with a three-piece suite.
Efficient gas central heating ensures year-round comfort, with traditional sash-and-case windows for added period appeal. EPC Rating: C.
Outside, the property has access to a good-size communal garden for summer socialising. Controlled parking is also available with a residents' permit (Zone 6). Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated and freestanding kitchen appliances to be included in the sale.
