Part of a traditional tenement, 215 (2F2) Dalkeith Road occupies an enviable setting in popular Newington, with unrestricted parking, excellent local amenities, and easy access to the city centre, offering a superb city residence for professionals, young families or rental investors.
A secure shared entry into this appealing sandstone-fronted building leads to the home’s front door opening into a spacious reception hall with a useful storage cupboard. Situated to the front, the impressive living and dining room offers a magnificent floorplan for relaxing and socialising. Here, a soaring ceiling, with decorative cornice work, frames the muted décor and rich timber floor for a pristine atmosphere. The airy ambience is further enhanced by a south-westerly facing bay window, which affords open leafy views and bathes the room in natural light. Continuing the fresh-toned palette and natural theme is the Shaker-inspired kitchen. This cleverly designed room boasts ample fitted storage, within pale beech-styled cabinets, and a contrasting worktop set against trendy metro-tiled splashbacks. An adjoining hall cupboard offers deep additional storage. The property boasts four bedrooms. The superb master bedroom has an exceptionally generous floorplan, featuring a bright front-facing aspect, enhancing the airy atmosphere. Two additional double bedrooms are peacefully situated to the rear of the property, commanding wonderful rooftop views through large picture windows. A fourth bedroom provides a versatile single space for alternate use as a home office or a study, if required. Completing the accommodation is a part-tiled modern bathroom. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round warmth throughout.
Externally, there is a communal garden to the rear of the building, which is landscaped with a large sweep of lawn, offering an alfresco haven for summer drinks and barbecues. On-street parking is available in the surrounding area.
