With a newly-refurbished swimming pool, and brand new gym, steam room, sauna, games room and relaxation lounge. Forming part of the monumental Lothian House designed by Stewart Kaye, a five-storey, B-listed art deco development (1935) on Lothian Road, this well- presented first/second-floor two-bedroom duplex apartment provides a highly desirable location within Edinburgh city centre's financial district. The property boasts modern interiors and complementary styling, which goes hand-in-hand with the art deco design. Furthermore, residents of Lothian House benefit from full-access to a private leisure suite.
This exceptionally stylish city apartment is reached by a grand art deco entrance, which leads into a communal foyer. From here, a stairway and a handy lift lead to the home's front door which opens into a broad reception hall characterised by crisp white decor and fashionable charcoal-coloured carpets. Two large built-in cupboards provide convenient storage for belongings and there is a handy downstairs WC before the hall moves into the living room.
This inviting living space enjoys contemporary decor and unique styling that is perfectly in line with the art deco theme, including ambient wall lights and fitted picture frames with diamond-shaped lighting. It has a spacious floor area which is well-suited for relaxing and socialising and further benefits from a semi-open plan with the dining kitchen.
Here, there is room for a 4+ family dining table for convivial evening meals together and generous workspace in white. Sparkling black splashback panels contrast nicely with the worktops and come paired with wall and base cabinets in light timber-effect. LED strip lighting and a food-themed montage of Hollywood celebrities create a nostalgic Golden Age of cinema and an art deco inspired style totally in keeping with Lothian House. Two wine rack/bottle holders are incorporated into the design, along with seamlessly integrated appliances: an electric hob, an electric oven/grill, a dishwasher, a fridge, and freezer. An undercounter washer is also included.
Upstairs, the second floor landing provides a deep storage cupboard and space for a study/vanity table before flowing into two airy double bedrooms presented in white, with soft carpeting for comfort. The first bedroom benefits from a curtained recess with wardrobe fixtures and additional storage set above, and both rooms benefit from a favourable south-facing aspect. Finishing the second floor is a three- piece bathroom suite (including an overhead shower and chrome towel radiator), featuring sparkling black splash panels and slate-effect styling for a wholly contemporary feel. Double glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.
For added luxury, residents of Lothian House, plus family members and friends, enjoy full- access to a fully-refurbished leisure suite within Lothian House that boasts a swimming pool, gym, sauna, and games room. Controlled parking is available in the area with a residents' permit (Zone 4). EPC Rating - C.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and a washer to be included in the sale. All furnishings are available by separate negotiation.
