Set within an A-listed Georgian terrace on London Street, on the eastern edge of the exclusive New Town, this four bedroom second floor flat is the epitome of Edinburgh’s classical architectural era.
Sympathetic décor throughout effortlessly enhances the wealth of carefully preserved period features, which include twelve pane sash-and-case windows with panelled shutters and a collection of original fireplaces, as well as beautifully refinished floorboards and restored Caithness flagstones.
Situated on tranquil London Street, equidistant between bustling Broughton Street and leafy Drummond Place, the flat forms part of an A-listed Georgian Terrace that dates back to 1819. Grand stone steps flanked by wrought-iron railings and original street lamps lead up to the secure shared entrance, which opens into an impressive hall and stairwell. welcoming you into the flat is the vast reception hall, where a beautifully restored Caithness flagstone floor makes a breathtaking first impression. The front-facing living room is flooded with natural light from two magnificent sash-and-case windows, which also yield framed views of the neighbouring Georgian architecture. The elegant space is brimming with exquisite period features, and at the heart of the room is a neo-classical fireplace with a pre-existing concealed gas supply. The living room is supplemented with a useful box room, which would make an ideal home office or study. The contemporary dining kitchen to the rear boasts a southeasterly aspect overlooking tranquil gardens, and provides a homely setting for weeknight suppers and informal entertaining. Inspired by the classic Shaker style, the linear kitchen offers extensive storage and workspace, and accommodates a brand new Stoves dual-fuel cooker with a vented extractor hood, plus an integrated dishwasher, a freestanding washing machine and a freestanding fridge/freezer. This leaves ample scope for a six-eight seater dining table, as well as useful overhead storage.
The rear-facing master bedroom is near identical to the living room, complete with two sash-and-case windows, an original mantle piece and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two further double bedrooms to the front and rear respectively, both of which enjoy outstanding proportions and natural light. The well-proportioned single bedroom to the front would make an ideal children’s bedroom or a fantastic home office or study. The pristine three-piece bathroom is tiled in chic monochrome, and comprises a bath with an electric shower and a glass screen, a wall-mounted toilet and basin suite, and a chrome towel radiator.
