Enjoying a prestigious setting on North Castle Street, so-named for its iconic view of Edinburgh Castle to the south, this double-upper flat is set within a pair of A-listed classical houses, constructed 1792 - 1794. The flat has been sympathetically modernised, whilst retaining all the charm of a period home.
The handsome front door opens into a stairwell shared with just one other property. The flat is accessed on the second floor, where the front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with a cantilevered stone staircase. Ascending to the third floor landing, the classic design is replaced by a more contemporary, steel structure, painted in soft sage to complement the natural timber treads. This level accommodates three outstanding double bedrooms - the master bedroom features an en-suite shower room, while the second double bedroom incorporates a walk-in wardrobe. Also on this floor is the stylish family bathroom. The stairwell leading to the fourth floor is flooded with natural light from a huge skylight and as you reach the landing, a glazed partition wall allows a clear line of sight into the spectacular open-plan living area. Characterised by a rustic exposed-stone wall with a working fireplace, the vast space enjoys dual-aspect windows to the east and west, which provide views across the city. The kitchen fits effortlessly into one corner, utilising handle-less cabinetry and solid quartz worktops. Ideally positioned in front of a wide dormer window, the central island provides fantastic additional workspace and bar seating. The A-listed property boasts original sash-and-case windows, some of which have traditional timber shutters, as well as Velux windows on the top floor. The flat also benefits from gas central heating throughout.
Edinburgh's New Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the heart of the City. This desirable and much sought after city centre residential address is ideally situated just off Princes Street and all the amenities associated with city life for leisure and cultural activities. Regular bus services run to and from many parts of the city centre and surrounding areas, and Waverley Railway Station is within easy reach making this location ideal for commuters. It is also well positioned for fast access to the city bypass for links to the International Airport, M8, M9 and M90 motorway systems. Schooling is readily available for all ages with state and private education, as well as Edinburgh’s universities, all within easy reach.
