This bright, easily managed Penthouse apartment with lift access, occupies part of the top floor of a much admired residential development, completed approximately thirteen years ago. Located on the edge of Edinburgh's historic and world renowned New Town, and displaying a Georgian style stone facade, the impressive crescent shaped building faces south east, overlooking tree-lined gardens that formerly housed part of the Royal Botanical Garden from 1763, before it was moved to the existing site in Inverleith around 1820. The spacious and freshly decorated interior is designed around a generously proportioned reception hall with a security entry phone system hand set, three large storage cupboards and an access hatch to additional attic storage above. From here, a raised platform and two matching sets of steps with a bespoke glass and oak balustrade lead down to a large thirty seven foot long living room with contemporary LED lighting, an open plan Magnet kitchen fitted in 2014 with Marmoleum floor and incorporating an excellent range of top quality cabinets, integral appliances and ample worktops. The room is well lit by four windows and enjoys views through the trees towards Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. To the rear of the apartment there are three double bedrooms on the upper level, all with far reaching views over the city skyline and across to Fife. The spacious master bedroom has two deep built-in double wardrobes and French doors leading to a 'Juliet' balcony and its own en-suite shower room with Amtico flooring, double shower cubicle, WC, wash basin and heated towel rail. The remaining two double bedrooms (one presently used as a study) both have fitted wardrobes and enjoy panoramic views across the north city skyline. Completing the accommodation is a comfortable modern bathroom displaying a three piece suite including a wash basin, WC and panelled bath with heated towel rail, white splash back tiling and Marmoleum floor.
