Situated just a stone's throw from Edinburgh's iconic Royal Mile, Abbeyhill offers easy access to world-class entertainment and shopping in the bustling heart of the capital.
Promising a charming city centre address, this three-bedroom duplex upper villa lies within the desirable Abbeyhill Colonies conservation area; conveniently close to Meadowbank Shopping Park and just a mile from Princes Street and Waverley train station. The area is currently enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to its wealth of independent shops and vibrant restaurants, pubs and cafés in the immediate area. It also benefits from being close to Meadowbank Retail Park, which boasts a Sainsbury's, Marks & Spencer's Outlet and TK Maxx, as well as many additional high street and fast-food outlets. Those who prefer to exercise in the great outdoors can opt for a walk up Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat or a slightly more leisurely climb up Calton Hill. There is excellent public and private schooling nearby, from nursery level upwards. The area is extremely well-connected, with a regular day and night bus service and good access to commuter routes, while Waverley Train Station is within walking distance.
Enjoying a wonderful sense of space and light, the villa boasts generously-proportioned rooms, many with airy high ceilings, and is tastefully presented with simple neutral interiors. A delightful private garden and access to unrestricted on-street parking further enhance this highly- appealing city home.
External steps lead up to the inviting brass-detailed front door, which affords access to an entrance vestibule and a hall laid with quality, honey-coloured timber flooring. Featuring a large bay window, capturing lovely views of the Colonies area, is a congenial living room with excellent space for comfortable furniture. Retaining exquisite original cornicing and a ceiling rose, the room is further supplemented by comfortable fitted carpeting, an attractive arched recess with display shelving and a coal-effect fire nestled with a modern understated stone surround.
Set to the front of the property and brightly-lit by double windows is a kitchen perfectly designed for casual midweek suppers and weekend entertaining, with a sociable central dining area. Complementing the room's hardwood floor and flawless neutral décor is an array of contemporary ivory-white base units framed by timber effect worktops and textured stone wall tiles. An integrated oven and a gas hob, with a sympathetically-toned feature hood, an undercounter washing machine, a dishwasher and a freestanding tall fridge freezer further equip this appealing space, whilst a deep store cupboard provides hidden pantry storage. Completing the first-floor accommodation is a sunny, carpeted bedroom, currently used as a home study, which includes cupboard storage. On the second floor, fanning off a central landing, are the master bedroom and a further bright and cosy bedroom, with all areas fitted with immaculate neutral carpeting for maximum comfort. The large floor space of the master bedroom is extended by a dormer window with pleasant neighbourhood views, whilst the room also benefits from fitted shelving and double built-in wardrobes. Finally, a bright, chicly-appointed bathroom comes replete with a WC, a rectangular counter-top basin accompanied by handsome timber-style vanity cupboards, a towel radiator and a L-shaped bathtub with an overhead shower. Gas central heating and double glazing guarantee a warm, energy-efficient climate all year round.
Externally, situated to the front of the property, is a private westerly-facing garden with a neat lawn, well-tended planting and a store for handy external storage. Unrestricted on-street parking is available in the immediate area. EPC C.
