71/4 Spottiswoode St living room

Living room

Beautiful traditional features are evident throughout the property with ceiling cornice work, wooden floorboards with an attractive dark varnish finish and open fireplaces.

The living room showcases all three to stunning effect, with the marble-surround fireplace drawing attention the second you enter the room. A large bay window floods the room with natural light, and it offers ample space for lounge and dining furniture, making it an excellent place to entertain guests.

If the living room showcases the traditional elements of the home, the kitchen highlights the contemporary aspects. It comes complete with a Rangemaster multi-burner cooker with a double oven and an American-style fridge freezer.

The white shaker-style units contrast well with the granite worktops and dark wood floors. It also features a lovely Belfast sink and there is room for a table and chairs. A utility area offers additional storage space.


While the bathroom is new, it has a traditional feel, with natural pine floors, a lovely clawfoot bath, scalloped wash-hand basin and a close-couple WC. Both the bath and the wash-hand basin feature period brassware taps. The shower has a traditional rose head and a concealed thermostatic control.


With a twin window, open fireplace with wooden surround and a press cupboard, the master bedroom is particularly attractive. It is bright, spacious and offers grand proportions. A box room lies off both the hall and the master bedroom, making for an excellent walk-in wardrobe or a dressing room.

There are two other double bedrooms in the property – both are well-proportioned and enjoy views over the shared gardens.

Property access and gardens

The property is reached by a well-kept common stair with an audio-controlled door and there is a shared garden area to the back of the building, providing a perfect place to spend sunny summer days.


This lovely flat is located in the highly-desirable Marchmont area to the south of the city centre. There are lots of buses available to transport residents to areas across the capital and the property is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of both the Old Town and New Town.

There is also a great choice of shops and eateries in Marchmont itself, as well as the neighbouring districts.

For avid walkers, runners and cyclists, the vast green space of the Meadows is just a stone’s throw away, while Arthur’s Seat is also close by.

With the Dominion cinema in Morningside and the Cameo in Tollcross, film buffs will be spoilt for choice, while theatre fans have easy access to the Churchill, Kings and Festival theatres.

Local schools

The property lies just a few minutes’ walk away from the well-respected James Gillespie’s primary and secondary schools and the flat is also conveniently located for George Heriot’s.
