    About the property

    Sold Stc

    Enviably located in Edinburgh’s highly sought-after Old Town, this beautiful, one-bedroom, ground-floor flat forms part of a B-listed, 18th-century tenement. Enjoying classical dimensions and modern interior design, the attractive home offers generous-sized rooms, including a south-facing living/ dining room, a modern kitchen and bathroom, and a double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe

    Inside the flat, reached via a secure shared entrance, you are greeted by a naturally-lit reception hall, which sets the standards of accommodation with neutral décor and varnished wooden floorboards – desirable features found throughout. In the living/dining room, the spacious footprint is framed by a delicate feature fireplace, whilst a south-facing sash window brings lots of natural light into the space. It is an ideal reception room for everyday use, whether relaxing, socialising, or dining. The breakfasting kitchen is conveniently adjacent, sporting a streamlined design that is arranged along one wall to maximise floorspace. It is fitted with sleek, handle-less base cabinets and a sweeping worktop, housing new integrated appliances (gas hob, oven, extractor hood, and fridge/freezer). It also has space for an undercounter washer. In the double bedroom, the neutral palette and warm-toned floorboards create an inviting ambience. The room is well-proportioned and is supplemented by a walk-in wardrobe. It also features direct access to the shared garden. Finishing the home is a part-tiled bathroom with a modern three-piece suite and overhead shower. Gas central heating ensures yearround comfort, alongside sash-and-case windows for added charm. Externally, the property enjoys direct access to a large communal garden. Controlled parking is available with a residents’ permit (Zone 4).

    Characterised by its narrow closes and winding medieval streets, Old Town is the oldest part of Edinburgh and recognised globally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Steeped in history and culture at every turn, the Old Town is home to some of the capital’s most famous buildings and landmarks, namely Edinburgh Castle (perched atop an extinct volcano), St Giles’ Cathedral and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The area’s cosmopolitan social scene is driven by diverse pubs and eateries, particularly at the Grassmarket, as well as the trendy bars, clubs and live music venues that now occupy the ancient underground vaults.
