This main-door, three-bedroom, ground-floor flat forms part of a traditional tenement in popular Willowbrae, close to Holyrood Park and enjoying easy access into the city centre.
The beautifully-presented home boasts classically-proportioned interiors, retained period features, and stylish contemporary upgrades, plus private front and rear gardens and would represent a fabulous city abode for families and professionals, or an excellent opportunity for buy-to-let investors.
A set of stone steps lead up, through the private front garden, to the flat's front door. Welcoming you inside, a vestibule leads into a long reception hallway (with generous storage) offering a wonderful first glimpse of the outstanding interiors to follow, with a lofty, corniced ceiling, varnished pine floorboards, and original timber-panelled doors. Extended by a wide bay window, the front-facing living and dining room enjoys elegant, colourful styling and delightful period features, including elaborate cornicing, an intricate ceiling rose, and a traditional, Victorian picture rail. Flanked by an illuminated display alcove, a period-style fireplace is set with a cosy gas fire, providing a superb focal point for comfortable lounge furniture arrangements, whilst the reception room's generous footprint provides ample space for a dining table and chairs - perfect for family meals and entertaining. Next door, a kitchen comes replete with streamlined, contemporary cabinetry, paired with stylish granite-inspired worktops and equipped with an integrated oven, a gas hob, a statement extractor hood and a fridge/freezer, along with a freestanding washing machine. Also located in the flat are three double bedrooms. The impressively-proportioned master bedroom is enhanced by a sunny rear garden aspect and comes with an en-suite bathroom, featuring a basin set into storage, and a luxurious jacuzzi bath. The two remaining sleeping areas, one with French doors to the rear garden, offer cosy double or spacious single bedroom settings. Finally, a striking monochrome bathroom houses a classically-styled three-piece-suite with a shower-over-bath, and a chrome ladder-style radiator. Gas central heating is found throughout. The windows to the rear of the flat are double-glazed, whilst the front windows benefit from triple glazing.
Externally, the home is accompanied by a private front garden with an array of mature shrubs, and a southwest-facing rear garden, chipped for ease of maintenance and providing a lovely suntrap seating area, bound by ivy-clad fencing. There is unrestricted on-street parking nearby. EPC Rating: D.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and the freestanding washing machine.
