SOLD-SUBJECT TO CONCLUSION OF MISSIVES
13/5 Gladstone Terrace is a fabulous second floor flat, offering generous accommodation situated in a sought-after location.
Approached off a well-kept shared stairwell via secure entry phone system, the front door opens into a grand welcoming hallway with a walk-in cloak cupboard and two further storage cupboards. The front facing living room is flooded with natural light from an east facing bay window and its soaring ceiling is adorned with cornicing and a decorative rose. At the focal point of the room is a splendid original fireplace flanked by an open Edinburgh Press. The bright and spacious breakfasting kitchen benefits from a westerly aspect overlooking the rear gardens and is fitted with a classic farmhouse kitchen, chalk white cabinets and a range of apliances. An alcove provides the perfect dining area, although the room provides scope for various configurations. Positioned to the front and rear respectively, both double bedrooms boast outstanding proportions and natural light, with ample floor space for an assortment of bedroom furniture. The bathroom has been completely modernised and features a classic roll-top bath with a rainfall shower and a glass shower screen. Across the hall, the versatile box room borrows natural light from the breakfasting kitchen adjacent, and would lend itself to a variety of uses. Several of the original sash-and-case windows have been restored and draught-proofed and the gas central heating system was upgraded in 2015 with a new Worcester-Bosch combi boiler. The private, west-facing garden to the rear is fully enclosed and includes a keter shed. Residents’ permit parking (Zone 7) and pay-and-display parking is available on Gladstone Terrace and in the vicinity.
