Characterised by stunning interior design, airy proportions, and delightful period features, this terraced townhouse is situated in desirable Bruntsfield, within a conservation area, and enjoys flexible and spacious accommodation set over three floors, including three reception rooms, four/five bedrooms, and a home office. Externally, the property is accompanied by a walled garden and a private driveway. The front door opens into an entrance vestibule with traditional floor tiles, flowing through to a hall with built-in storage, a WC (which is plumbed for an accessible shower), and wood flooring. On your right, you step into an impressive living room, flooded with light through a large bay window (with a panelled surround) and providing flexibility for lounge furniture layouts. The room is further enhanced by soft, pared-back décor, a working fireplace, an Edinburgh Press, a picture rail, beautifully-detailed cornicing, a ceiling rose, and the same flooring as the hall. Continuing along the hall, you reach a kitchen, which comes exceptionally well-appointed with cabinetry and workspace and has been designed to incorporate a selection of integrated appliances and a boiling water tap. An adjoining, matching utility room affords convenient external access. Also located on the ground floor is a formal dining room, offering the perfect setting for seated family meals and gatherings with guests, and enjoying stylish décor enhanced by cornicing, a picture rail, a recessed window with working shutters, and wood flooring.
A staircase rises to a landing (with storage) on the first floor, from which a drawing room, two bedrooms, and a shower room are accessed. The magnificent drawing room is similarly-decorated to the dining room and filled with wonderful original features, including a striking working fireplace and exquisite cornicing.
The sunny bedrooms both overlook the rear garden and are elegantly-presented with stylish décor and cornicing. A landing on the second floor with a spectacular cupola leads to the principal bedroom, a further bedroom, a shower room, and a versatile room which is currently being used as an office but could serve as a fifth bedroom. The principal suite occupies a generous footprint and includes a large adjoining dressing room and a contemporary four-piece en-suite bathroom. The home is kept warm by a gas central heating system and the windows are partially double-glazed. Externally, the house boasts its own private, low-maintenance, walled garden, enjoying an enviably sunny aspect and including various patios and pebbled areas interspersed with trees and shrubbery, as well as a shed and three external stores for outdoor storage. Off-street parking is provided by a private front driveway. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window blinds, light fittings, and integrated appliances will be included in the sale.
