Home for an art lover
La Cave is an A listed lower ground and garden flat in Edinburgh’s New Town which carries much historical charm through its well preserved Georgian period features.
What makes this property so special is the baronial feel with its wood flooring, exposed beams and solid doors along with stone flagged staircases, and the current owner has enhanced these features with a treasure-trove of paintings and antiques. There are original fireplaces throughout including an original wooden fireplace in the upper hall which has a cast iron inset and houses an open fire. The property has gas central heating, while there is good storage with cupboard space and a utility room/
On the lower ground floor is an entrance hall with oak flooring and an original feature fireplace. It leads to two double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and a third bedroom which could also be used as a study.
The stone staircase leads to the garden level which is an impressively spacious hallway. The large sitting room has a cosy feel with its wood beams, a feature stone fireplace and wood burning stove and double doors that lead out to the back garden. The modern kitchen and dining room has an Aga, an exposed stone wall and wood beam on the ceiling, and it would make a warm and welcoming space for family dinners. On this floor there is also a WC and a large wine cellar which offers a wonderful, and flexible, space.
The garden is enclosed by an original stone wall and features a stone slab patio area with steps leading to plant displays and sitting areas. Because the garden is south west facing it receives lots of sunshine, and would be a really pleasant space to enjoy on warm days.
A gate at the top of the garden leads out on to South East Cumberland Street Lane. Access can also be gained to Drummond Place Gardens by way of a small annual fee.
Drummond Place is a wonderful example of New Town architecture and was built in the early 1800s. The area is close to an excellent and wide choice of shops.
