Set within a handsome C-Listed Victorian townhouse, this impressive two-bedroom garden flat lies enviably close to the Water of Leith and Haymarket train station. Set over the ground floor, with a rear extension, and with views of the Pentland Hills, the flat is characterised by exceptionally spacious proportions, tasteful contemporary enhancements and charming authentic features.
Accessed via a secure communal vestibule, the flats front door opens directly into the lounge area. This remarkable space immediately illustrates the charm and grandeur on offer, with a footprint of almost 40 square foot and boasting such details as stripped pine flooring, ornate cornicing and a vast bay window with a panelled surround and working shutters. The room provides tremendous flexibility for numerous furniture configurations and is completed by an imposing feature fireplace with a marble surround. The southerly-facing kitchen represents a wonderfully social space for entertaining friends and family with the inclusion of a large seated dining area. The room is thoughtfully presented with unique decorative enhancements and features a tiled fireplace, whilst, nestled in one corner of the space, is a kitchen framed by chic metro wall tiles and enjoying a stylish natural wood and steel finish. Fitted cabinets and shelving accompany a range cooker and space for appliances.
Leading off the kitchen and benefiting from a quiet garden-facing position is one of the two double bedrooms on offer. This sunny and spacious room retains its classic cornicing and is attractively decorated. Also reached from the kitchen is the rear hall, with handy garden access, accommodating a shower room and stairs to the first-floor bedroom. The immaculate shower room comes replete with a WC-suite and a large shower enclosure, as well as built-in linen storage. Finally, located on the first floor and encapsulating views of the rugged Pentland Hills, is the second double bedroom. Additionally, planning permission has been granted (now expired) to further extend the property to the rear. The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system, its own private garden (to the rear) and ample unrestricted on-street parking available, as well as controlled on-street parking in the area.
