**UNDER OFFER** Set on the top floor of a detached Victorian villa, with wonderfully leafy surroundings and unrivalled views of the Pentland Hills, this two-bedroom flat lies just minutes’ walk from Morningside’s cosmopolitan shopping area; an exceptionally desirable location recently voted by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in Scotland. Inside, this generous period home retains much of its authentic charm, sympathetically enhanced by tasteful contemporary interiors and fittings.
The flat is reached via a grand communal vestibule and stairwell retaining intricately detailed plasterwork and carved wood features. On the second floor, the front door provides access to a hall (with storage) offering an inviting first impression, due to its stripped pine details and varnished floorboards. Immediately on the right is the carpeted lounge enjoying elegant décor and a feature fireplace. In addition to plentiful space for comfortable seating, the room’s south-facing dormer window creates a delightful dining alcove with a breath-taking panoramic vista of the Pentland Hills. Also accessed from the hall is a classically-styled kitchen fitted with light grey panel-effect cabinets framed by natural wood worktops, chic tiling and attractive Aztec-inspired flooring. An integrated fridge freezer, an oven and a gas hob (with an extractor hood) accompany an under-counter washing/dryer and a microwave. The flat’s two carpeted bedrooms include an impressive double bedroom and a good-sized second bedroom with a south-facing dormer window sharing the lounge area’s scenic outlook. The rear-facing double bedroom also boasts a dormer window with pleasant views, flanked by a pair of useful cupboards. This luxurious sleeping area is further supplemented by the charming features of colourful accent wallpaper and a period fireplace. Finally, the spacious contemporary bathroom has been appointed in a suitably traditional fashion with a WC, a pedestal basin and a handsome clawfoot bathtub accompanied by an overhead shower with a deluxe rainfall showerhead. The property benefits from gas central heating, double glazing, a large store housed within the basement and controlled on-street permit parking.
The highly regarded area of Morningside is one of the most favoured residential districts in Edinburgh, situated approximately three miles south of the City Centre. The area has a wonderful cosmopolitan feel and offers an abundance of amenities, including a variety of specialist shops, boutiques, eateries, bars, restaurants, banking facilities and Post Office services. Leisure pursuits are well catered for; Hillend dry ski slope is within easy reach, as are a number of golf courses and plenty of local parks. Pleasant walks can be taken on Blackford Hill, along the Hermitage of Braid or Braid Burn.
