Promising a period home of spectacular proportions in one of the capital’s most vibrant districts, this Victorian four bedroom (plus box room) first floor flat lies in easy reach of Edinburgh city centre on the fringes of Newington.Representing a superior family home or healthy rental investment, the property also enjoys proximity to Edinburgh University, the Meadows and Holyrood Park.
Occupying a tremendous footprint of over 1400 square feet, with a flexible arrangement of sizable, tall-ceilinged rooms, the flat’s wonderfully light and airy ambience is further enhanced by pleasant neutral décor and large sash-and-case style windows. Forming part of a handsome sandstone tenement, a wealth of beautifully preserved authentic features also remain, creating the perfect backdrop for the upgraded modern interiors.
Approached via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the flat opens into a remarkably generous reception hall providing a tantalising first taste of the characterful accommodation on offer. Here, an abundance of elegant features includes a sweeping archway, ceiling cornicing, panelled internal doors with deep architraves, and tall skirting boards. Lit by a huge southwest-facing bay window, with a handsome panelled surround, the adjacent living room is comfortably carpeted and enhanced by further impressive cornicing, a decorative rose and a feature marble and tiled fireplace flanked by a traditional Edinburgh Presses. Accessed from the living room is a box room for handy storage, also ideal as a home study area. The kitchen is arranged around a sociable central dining area, and enjoys impeccable, enduringly classic appearance. The newly fitted kitchen hosts an array of sage green cabinets, with a panel effect frontage, complemented by stylish chrome fittings and the warm tones of wood effect worktops and flooring. An integrated oven and a gas hob accompany an under-counter washing machine and space for a freestanding fridge freezer, whilst excellent additional storage is provided with a further Edinburgh Press, a deep store cupboard and a walk-in pantry. Also located within the flat are four large double bedrooms; two with a tranquil rear-facing position and two with a favourable southwest-facing aspect.
All four rooms retain their ornamental cornicing, notably in the master bedroom where cornicing and a ceiling rose boast exquisite intricacy. This room is further heightened by a vast double window with a panelled surround and an Edinburgh Press for display storage. Finally, a bright newly fitted bathroom has been stylishly modernised, yet in a suitably traditional style.
