215/7 Bruntsfield Place enjoys elegant presentation, well-proportioned, tastefully-renovated interiors and delightful period features. Boasting two double bedrooms, a study/single bedroom and open-plan living space, plus access to a shared garden, this wonderful property enjoys panoramic, triple-aspect views over the gothic Christ Church Morningside, towards the Pentlands, Blackford Hill and Arthur’s Seat, and represents an outstanding period home with a sought-after city centre address.
Accessed via a communal stairwell with secure entry system, the front door opens into a welcoming hallway (with storage) characterised by stripped pine flooring. Stepping into the living room on the right reveals an elegantly-proportioned dual-aspect reception room, fronted by a magnificent, wood-panelled bay window yielding open views over Christ Church Morningside. Further notable features are decorative cornicing, a ceiling rose and a fireplace framed by a handsome timber surround. Set to the rear of the flat and flooded with morning sunshine, the garden-facing dining kitchen enjoys lovely open views towards Arthur’s Seat. Supplemented by an Edinburgh press and a walk-in pantry, this airy, open-plan space is fitted with a range of cabinets in a classic design, paired with timber worktops and equipped with appliances; a washing machine is discreetly housed in the adjoining utility room. A breakfast bar provides a wonderful focal point, whilst a large alcove, lit by a south-facing window, creates a perfect seated dining space.
The flat’s two large double bedrooms enjoy tasteful presentation and plush carpeting, and boast recessed windows with working shutters. The larger, front-facing bedroom benefits from particularly generous dimensions and a charming original fireplace. The remaining bedroom is enhanced by morning sunshine and tranquil garden views. A versatile room, currently arranged as a home study, enjoys a favourable south-facing aspect and could alternatively represent a single bedroom. Crisp-white tiling and generous vanity storage are features of the good-sized bathroom which also accommodates a bath with an overhead shower and a traditional-style WC-suite.
An efficient gas central heating system (controlled by a Hive thermostat) and partial double glazing ensure year-round comfort and warmth. The property represents a great development opportunity with full consent (planning permission and a building warrant, reference: 18/09942/FUL) available for a two-bedroom and shower room loft conversion.
Externally, the flat benefits from access to a substantial lawned garden, sheltered by mature trees. Controlled parking in the area falls under Zone S2.
