**Closing Date has been set for Friday, 20th July 2018 at 11:00am** Brimming with characterful period charm and tasteful décor, and promising one of the capital’s most desirable city addresses, this remarkably spacious two bedroom (plus a box room) main door flat lies enviably close to Morningside’s main thoroughfare offering excellent transport links and delightful shopping and entertainment amenities.
This sought-after location also benefits from proximity to some of Edinburgh’s most scenic green spaces, such as Blackford Hill renowned for its breath-taking city vistas. Forming part of a handsome Victorian tenement and occupying an impressive footprint, inside, the ultra-stylish interiors are beautifully enhanced by a wealth of well-preserved features and sympathetically classic contemporary touches.
A small garden area leads to a private front door, which opens into a welcoming vestibule laid with colourful original tiling and affording access to a sizable reception hall. This impressive entrance area houses numerous store cupboards and can easily accommodate furniture pieces and a home study area. Located to the front of the flat with a favourable south-facing aspect and sophisticated soft-grey décor is a large bay windowed reception area for relaxing and dining. Handsome natural wood features include a panelled window surround and stripped flooring, whilst an elegant feature fireplace incorporates an attractive tiled insert. The characterful touches continue with an ornate ceiling rose and cornicing, and an Edinburgh Press for display storage. Leading off the reception area, and also reached via the hall, is a handy box room lit by an internal window. Across the hall, a spacious dining/ kitchen represents a congenial area for entertaining with French doors opening onto the rear communal garden and a sociable seated dining area. Adorned with classic cornicing, the room is immaculately decorated with crisp monochrome décor offset by rustic timber flooring. Perfectly complementing the decorative finish is an array of high quality fitted base units, paired with natural wood worktops, distinctive crosshatched wall tiling, a deep Belfast sink and integrated appliances. Providing additional storage are an Edinburgh Press and a built-in pantry cupboard. A practical adjoining utility room features plumbing for a washing machine.
Also located within the flat are two superbly generous double bedrooms, one enjoying a tranquil rear garden facing position and the other a sunny south-facing aspect. Both rooms are attractively supplemented by timber flooring, ceiling cornicing and tasteful décor, with the largest room notably finished in an opulent shade of royal blue. Finally, completing this beautiful period home is a bright, two tone bathroom fully tiled with on trend metro wall tiles and exquisite geometric flooring to create a striking backdrop. The bathroom is complemented by traditional fittings, such as a WC, a basin (with vanity storage) and a sumptuous rolltop bathtub with an overhead rainfall showerhead. This stunning property further benefits from gas central heating and sash and case style double glazed windows. Externally, the flat enjoys shared access to a rear garden. Controlled on-street parking can be found in the immediate vicinity (Zone S2).
