Nestled on sleepy Temple Park Crescent in sought-after Polwarth, this traditional second floor tenement flat is the epitome of stylish period living, having retained a wealth of original features, including sash-and-case windows, exquisite fireplaces and refinished floorboards. These are sympathetically enhanced by heritage-inspired interior design, with all the advantages of contemporary living.
Set within a traditional yet dynamic tenement of predominantly owner-occupied flats, the second floor property is accessed via a secure stairwell. As you step into the inviting hall, stripped floorboards and soaring ceilings set the tone for the accommodation to follow. Instantly warm and welcoming, the front-facing living room is bathed in light from southeast-facing windows and at the focal point of the space is a splendid working fireplace with a beautiful tiled surround and hearth, plus an open Edinburgh Press. Just off the living room is a versatile box room/study, which benefits from an internal window into the hall. The country cottage-inspired dining kitchen to the rear is equally endearing, and enjoys picturesque views of Union Canal. Designed around a rustic fireplace with a stunning original stove, the room incorporates a flexible dining area and a shelved pantry cupboard, as well as a custom-made fitted kitchen featuring a gleaming Belfast sink, a gas cooker, a washing machine, a tumble dryer and a fridge/freezer. Also to the rear is the bright and spacious double bedroom, and the contemporary three-piece shower room. Further benefits include gas central heating, access to an enclosed shared garden/drying green to the rear and on-street permit parking (Zone S3) directly adjacent and in the vicinity.
Positioned approximately two miles south-west of the city centre, Polwarth enjoys the best of both worlds: a tranquil yet central canal-side setting with fantastic local amenities in every direction. Polwarth is just minutes’ walk from bustling Bruntsfield, which is home to independent shops, a thriving café culture, award-winning pubs, restaurants and eateries.
