On Scotland Street
Scotland Street has become known as one of Edinburgh’s more ‘literary’ streets, having been immortalised in Alexander McCall Smith’s stories featured in the Scotsman.
25/2 Scotland Street is an elegant four bedroom flat that forms part of a ‘B’ listed building where the period features of the home have been retained. These stunning details include ornate plasterwork, four attractive fireplaces, large sash and case windows with working shutters and warm natural wood finishes, which create a stylish look and feel.
Presented to the market in move-in condition, the beautifully light and spacious interior has been freshly decorated and thoughtfully upgraded with the benefit of gas central heating. An entryphone system provides security for the entrance and there is residents permit parking to the front of the building.
As well as large rooms with high ceilings, the property also has excellent storage, and there is a boxroom which could be adapted to suit your needs. The spacious reception hall with its traditional plaster work leads to all the rooms in the flat. The living room is an elegant space with two large windows, while the kitchen and dining area is bright and airy. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and two further bedrooms have doors that lead to the Jack and Jill bathroom. A fourth bedroom is currently being used as a dining room.
With a bright westerly aspect, the home has lovely rooftop views to the spires of Fettes College and over to Fife, while the rear of the property overlooks gardens towards the Broughton Street Church in Bellevue Crescent.
Located in Edinburgh's prestigious Georgian New Town, Scotland Street is only a few minutes' walk from Princes Street and George Street with an extensive range of major retail outlets, reputable restaurants and bars. The cosmopolitan areas of Stockbridge and Broughton Street which offer an array of individual shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops are also only a short walk away. For larger shopping facilities, there is a Tesco supermarket at Canonmills, a Sainsbury's convenience store on Howe Street and a Waitrose in Comely Bank. Schools catering for all age groups are easily accessible including The Edinburgh Academy, the Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools and Fettes College. Recreational facilities in and around the area include the nearby King George V Park, the extensive greenery of The Royal Botanical Gardens and Inverleith Park, Drummond Tennis Club, Glenogle Swim Centre, health clubs and walking and cycling opportunities along the Water of Leith walkway. A frequent public transport operates nearby to many parts of the city.
