Flat | 2 Bedrooms

OPEN VIEWINGS SUNDAY 1 - 3pm
Located on one of Stockbridges enchanting cobbled streets, this outstanding Georgian two-bedroom main-door flat enjoys a prestigious city centre address; set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site and only a mile from Princes Street. Just a short stroll from the property lies the scenic Water of Leith and Stockbridges bustling centre, with its charming village atmosphere and a delightful array of artisan shops, cafes, pubs and eateries. Forming part of a Category B-listed stone-built property, inside, the flat boasts the epitome of Georgian grandeur; enjoying generous, tall-ceilinged rooms, festooned with ornate cornicing and lit by large sash-and-case windows with working shutters.
Approached via an impressive entrance, with an authentic panelled door set beneath a magnificent fanlight, the flat opens into an inviting vestibule featuring a further fanlight window. From here, you step into a large reception hall, ornamented with an elegant archway and housing useful storage. This congenial space offers ample room to create an additional sitting area or a home study. To the left of the hall lies an exceptionally spacious, neutrally-toned living room. This spectacular reception area boasts double windows, richly varnished hardwood flooring, a handsome period marble fireplace (with a coal-effect fire) and built-in storage. Overlooking the rear garden, and offering a wonderfully sociable space for entertaining, is a southwest-facing kitchen incorporating sufficient floorspace for a seated dining area. Fitted with a collection of crisp white contemporary cabinets, accompanied by spacious worktops, eye-catching mosaic wall tiling and recessed display shelving, the kitchen is integrated with an oven, a gas hob (paired with a chimney-style hood) and a washing machine. A freestanding fridge freezer is also included. Incorporated into the flat are two large double bedrooms finished in a pleasant lightly-toned palette. Benefiting from the afternoon sun and similar in size to the generous living room, the largest bedroom enjoys a tranquil garden outlook and a Juliet balcony. Further notable features include a majestic marble fireplace and storage, whilst the second bedroom boasts a set of classically-styled fitted wardrobes. Finally, a bright and spacious shower room comprises a WC-suite, a shower enclosure, a further basin set into a vanity storage unit and a linen cupboard.
Externally, the flat benefits from access to a rear communal garden, laid to lawn, whilst a private cellar store provides useful external storage. Controlled on-street parking (Zone 5A) is available on Clarence Street. The flat is heated via a gas central heating system.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, fridge freezer and, if desired, bespoke living room book shelves to be included in the sale. EPC - C
