This third/top-floor flat forms part of a traditional terrace in desirable Marchmont, within the Marchmont, Meadows and Bruntsfield conservation area. A stone’s throw from the much-loved Meadows and Bruntsfield Links, and just over a mile from the heart of the capital, 20/8 Livingstone Place is perfect for the professional couple, those attending one of Edinburgh's universities or indeed growing families.
Approached via a secure shared stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into an inviting hall with storage. Leading off the hall to the left is a generous, east-facing reception room. Enjoying elegant proportions which allow for a number of lounge and dining furniture layouts, the living and dining room is decorated in earthy tones and carpeted for comfort. Creating a wonderful focal point is a warming multi-fuel stove, set in an exposed brick surround and nestled under a wood mantel. An Edinburgh Press flanks the fireplace and features a matching exposed brick log store and further display/storage shelving. Across the hall, a kitchen awaits and is equipped with a selection of modern cabinets, framed by wood worktops and neutral splashback tiling, and accompanied by ample wall shelving and appliances. The flat’s two double bedrooms flank the hall at either side, one enjoying morning sun and the other enjoying natural light in the afternoon and evening. The larger of the two features a full wall of built-in storage, whilst the remaining room enjoys a wealth of fitted shelving. A handy box room offers an excellent space for storage, a walk-in wardrobe, or a home office set up. Finally, a stylish bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, and a WC-suite set into excellent storage. The home benefits from a gas central heating system and recently-fitted timberframe sash-and-case double-glazed windows.
Externally, the flat enjoys access to a well-kept, sunny shared garden, enjoying a conveniently sheltered position and capturing wonderful afternoon sun, and permit parking on Livingstone Place falls under Zone 7.
Situated opposite the Meadows, this area is within easy walking distance of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, the New Town, Waverley Station, and the city’s best universities. A wide variety of cafés, restaurants, coffee houses, bistros, independent shops, galleries, boutiques, a luxury cinema, theatres, and various supermarkets can all be found on your doorstep and in neighbouring Morningside and Bruntsfield. The area offers tranquil parks and large green spaces for outdoor activities and picnics. Outstanding state schooling is on offer at primary and secondary level and the area is very well served by frequent public transport services, superb cycle paths and picturesque, leafy walkways.
