35 Carlyle Place is a beautiful upper villa situated in an ideal location, with some of the capital’s top attractions like the Royal Mile, Parliament, Holyrood Palace and Arthur’s Seat, all on its doorstep. With two bedrooms and a lovely private garden, this city centre home is ideal from the professional couple, downsizers and growing families alike.
Approached via a set of external stairs, the villa’s private front entrance opens into a handy vestibule with eye-catching traditional floor tiling, flowing through to an airy hallway. The high-ceilinged hall enjoys neutral décor enhanced by a resilient engineered oak floor. On your left, you step into a living room with lovely period features, including a picture rail, cornicing and a ceiling rose. This well-proportioned reception room offers ample space for furniture, arranged around a marble fireplace with a period insert and a monochrome tiled hearth. An open Edinburgh Press with fitted shelving and working window shutters also feature. Next door, a generous kitchen boasts a sunny southeast-facing aspect and is well-appointed with country-style cabinets framed by wood-effect worktops and white splashback tiling. The kitchen is replete with a range of appliances and also offers space for a seated dining area. The first-floor is also home to one of the two bedrooms on offer. A good-sized single, the bedroom incorporates excellent fitted storage and working window shutters and is currently being utilised as a nursery, and could alternatively be an excellent study.
Ascending the stairs to the second floor, you reach a bright landing which in turn affords access to the remaining bedroom and a shower room. Spanning the depth of the second floor and featuring dormer windows to both sides, the master bedroom offers fantastic flexibility for a selection of furniture and enjoys neutral décor and a cosy carpet, as well as its own en-suite bathroom featuring a rolltop bath, a WC-suite, and a heated towel rail. The shower room comprises a large shower enclosure, a wall-mounted basin, and a toilet. The villa benefits from gas central heating and double-glazed windows throughout. Extensive storage is available in the eaves and a loft space, accessed from the second-floor landing.
Outside, the home is complemented by a private front garden featuring a lawn with a colourful, leafy border, paved areas, a handy secure external store, and a shed. Unrestricted on-street parking is available on Carlyle Place.
Abbeyhill is within striking distance of a wide range of independent shops, boutiques, cafés, eateries and pubs can be found in the immediate area.
