Occupying a prime position in sought-after Newington, this exceptional two-bedroom first-floor (classically proportioned) flat boasts a desirable south-facing outlook and a striking blend of period features and contemporary interiors.
The property is situated within strolling distance of local amenities, just a stone's throw from The Meadows and Holyrood Park. Additionally, it is perfectly placed for Edinburgh University and located within the catchment area for several sought-after schools.
Part of a mid-Victorian tenement, the home is entered via a secure communal entrance framed within a channelled sandstone frontage, where a bright communal stairwell leads to the first-floor flat. The spacious reception hall, with a soaring ceiling and neutral toned walls, incorporates subtle botanical décor offering an enticing glimpse of the exceptional interiors and period features to follow. A polished maple wood floor immediately draws the eye flowing into the reception room. Here, the open plan living/dining room is flooded with natural light via a large picture window, offering a sunny, southerly aspect. This elegant space is perfect for relaxing and entertaining, enhanced by a high- ceiling with impressive original cornicing and a decorative ceiling rose. Dove-grey toned décor adorns the walls, framed by an ornate mantelpiece and hearth inset with a cosy multi-fuel burner. A feature wall with acanthus style décor (redolent of William Morris interiors) creates a chic focal point.
Accessed by a glazed door, the adjoining contemporary kitchen (with brick-styled walls) is perfectly located for socialising whilst cooking. The well-designed space boasts sleek white-gloss handleless cabinets contrasting with sparkling grey composite worktops and cheerful red splashbacks, neatly incorporating an array of fitted appliances (including a gas hob, electric double oven, extractor hood, and fridge freezer). There is also a freestanding washing machine and a small table for quick meals and coffee.
Located to the rear of the flat, framed by deep sash windows with a tranquil and leafy outlook, are two generously proportioned double bedrooms. The larger master bedroom offers a triple wardrobe and two fitted cupboards, whilst both rooms continue the contemporary styling, each with a unique feature wall boasting pastel tones. Situated off the hall, the luxurious shower room features crisp black and white tiled décor enveloping a modern vanity unit and a large double shower cubicle, with a multi-function rainwater shower. A WC suite is conveniently located in a separate cloakroom. A useful hall cupboard completes this stylish city home. Gas central heating (via modern vertical radiators) and double-glazed sash windows ensure year- round comfort and efficiency. Externally, the property boasts a large, enclosed communal garden, landscaped with a lawn, giving rise to an outdoor haven for al-fresco dining and relaxation in the heart of the city. To the front, there is controlled parking with a residents' permit (Zone 7). Extras: All fitted floor and wall coverings, light fittings, a fitted wardrobe, a television, integrated appliances, the washing machine, and a garden shed are included in the sale.
