Positioned on the top floor of a classic Georgian tenement in Edinburgh’s vibrant Newington district, this three bedroom third floor flat offers an elegant city home with views of Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags. Characterised by the grand proportions synonymous with properties of this era, the flat has also retained original features including exquisite sash-and-case windows with working shutters, as well as refinished floorboards throughout.
Accessed via a secure shared entrance and a well-maintained stairwell, on the top floor the front door opens into a bright and airy entrance hall with a convenient two-piece WC and a useful storage cupboard. Here rustic timber floorboards and minimalist white walls enhance the high ceilings and period details, and create a blank canvas to suit all tastes. The spacious dining kitchen boasts a large window to the rear, which yields views of quaint communal gardens set against the rugged backdrop of Salisbury Crags. The attractive linear kitchen offers ample fitted storage and workspace, plus a selection of freestanding appliances. This leaves room for a large dining table – perfect for relaxed entertaining. Across the hall, the front-facing living room is flooded with light from twin south-facing windows with traditional wrought-iron balcony railings, and also boasts views of Arthur’s Seat. The room is framed by classic timber panelling and decorative cornicing, and also features an open Edinburgh Press and a slate hearth. In addition to flexible scope for various seating arrangements, the living room is supplemented with a good-sized box room, which would make an ideal home office. The interconnecting single bedroom flows directly into the generous front double bedroom and thus represents potential for a dressing room or a nursery. The second double bedroom to the rear enjoys equally impressive proportions and charming views. Bathed in natural light courtesy of a skylight, the stylish three-piece bathroom features traditional tongue-and-groove panelling paired with a luxurious Carrara marble countertop. The contemporary suite comprises an inset basin and a hidden-cistern toilet, plus a chrome towel radiator and an electric shower-over-bath with a glass screen. The flat benefits from excellent storage including a well-insulated loft and a private cellar store at garden level, gas central heating, access to a communal garden and drying green to the rear, as well as controlled permit parking (Zone 3) and pay-and-display parking directly adjacent.
