    About the property

    ** UNDER OFFER**

    Part of a traditional tenement in sought-after Polwarth, this impressive first-floor flat enjoys classical proportions and well-presented interiors, including two generous double bedrooms, a bay-windowed living room adorned with period features, a stylish dining kitchen, and a chic bathroom. With a prime location close to Fountain Park and the city centre, it represents an ideal home for professionals, small families, and first-time buyers alike.

    Inside the flat, accessed via a secure shared entrance and stairwell, you are greeted by an impeccable reception hall with a handy cupboard. On the right is the generous living room. Here, the eye is immediately attracted to the well-retained period details, from the ornate feature fireplace that frames the room, to the lavish cornice work that emphasises the lofty ceiling. Calming décor and snug carpeting create a homely ambience, as the timber-panelled bay window floods the room in south-easterly sunlight. An Edinburgh Press completes the space. To the rear, the dining kitchen is beautifully arranged around a central island and breakfast bar, fitted with Shaker-inspired cabinets and solid wood worktops that are backed by white metro splashbacks. Suave and sophisticated, it houses an integrated gas hob, electric oven, and dishwasher, as well as a freestanding fridge/ freezer and a washing machine. A large recess, beside a built-in pantry, offers plenty of room for a table for dinner parties, whilst the final stylistic touches are provided by a built-in display cabinet, a vertical radiator, and a traditional clothes pulley.

    Located to the home’s front and rear, respectively, bedrooms one and two are both generous doubles with striking décor. The first bedroom also has the added benefit of a built-in cupboard. A handy box room, connected to the living area, is perfect as a private office/study. Completing the home, the three-piece bathroom has a chic traditional style, with fashionable metro splashback tiles, tongue and groove panelling, and an overhead shower. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows are throughout.

    Externally, there is an enclosed garden for communal use and controlled parking with a residents’ permit (Zone S4).
