12 Restalrig Gardens is characterised by generous proportions, original features and stylish interiors. The two-bed upper villa has been extensively upgraded to create a contemporary home and is a must-see.
The main door opens into a vestibule with a mosaic-tiled floor and a built-in bench, as well as space for hanging coats. A staircase ascends to the light-filled first floor landing. Here attractive oak-effect floors, traditional wooden doors and green walls set the fresh, but classic, tone for the accommodation to follow.
Stylish & Characterful
Bathed in light from a bay window, the spacious living room is brimming with character. Period features include original floorboards, as well as intricate cornices and a ceiling rose preserved in chalk white.
The open fireplace sits against a restored brick wall with candle niches, which provide wonderful ambient lighting. This striking wall is also fully configured for a wall-mounted TV, complete with recessed aerial and plug sockets.
A Wonderful Setting for Everyday Dining & Entertaining
The gloss-white fitted kitchen conceals excellent storage and houses integrated appliances. Luxurious finishing touches include plinth lighting and illuminated display recesses. The separate utility room to the rear is plumbed and offers space for appliances. From here a door allows direct access to the private garden via a spiral staircase.
