**Please note a closing date has been set for Friday, 21st February 2020 at 11:00** Set on the very edge of the Old Town, with views towards Calton Hill, this two-bedroom third-floor flat represents a stunning home or pied-a-terre at the very heart of the capital. Part of a B-listed Scots Baronial-style tenement, the property is a short walk from Waverley Train Station, not to mention a host of other city attractions and amenities. Inside, the flat boasts an exquisite array of period features, including timber-framed sash windows, which are coupled with elegant, heritage-inspired decor.
Accessed via a secure shared entrance and stairwell, on the third floor the front door opens into an impressive hall. French oak parquet tiles underfoot are laid in a classic herringbone pattern and are complemented with neutral decor. The beautiful flooring continues into the front-facing living/dining room, whose twin windows yield magnificent, unspoiled views of Calton Hill – with its unmistakable collection of monuments and landmarks. In addition to period cornices, a picture rail and a ceiling rose, the room benefits from a feature fireplace flanked by an open Edinburgh Press. The kitchen adjacent is lined with white-gloss cabinetry and solid granite worktops, and hosts of integrated appliances. Both double bedrooms enjoy a southwesterly aspect to the rear, overlooking historic tenements and gardens. Both offer flexible floorspace for an assortment of furniture; the larger bedroom also accommodates a charming window seat, a utility cupboard and a boiler cupboard. The sunny bathroom is equipped with a traditional shower-over-bath, a pedestal basin and a toilet. The property benefits from gas central heating, use of a shared garden to the rear and controlled parking (Zone 3) in the vicinity.
Situated in the heart of a UNISCO World Heritage Site, with Edinburgh Castle towering over the rows of breath-taking medieval buildings, the Old Town offers some of the finest amenities Edinburgh has to offer. Local amenities and convenience stores are close by and a range of High Street shops can be found in nearby Princes Street, with various designer outlets in St. Andrew’s Square. Waverly Train Station, the Tram line and excellent bus routes, make travelling from here extremely convenient.
