Property highlight: Beautiful main door property in sought after Bruntsfield
This beautiful main-door ground-floor two-bedroom tenement property combines a luxurious interior with a highly desirable location. Situated in the heart of Bruntsfield, within the Marchmont, Meadows and Bruntsfield conservation area, the flat is a stone's throw from a number of artisan eateries and independent retail outlets and is only a short walk from The Meadows and its many amenities.
Accessed by its own main door, an entrance vestibule welcomes you inside and flows into a bright hallway with hardwood flooring. To the right is the stunning living/dining room which is flooded with light via a bay window and showcases a number of original period features including ornate cornicing and a ceiling rose, wooden window shutters, a tiled fireplace with gas fire, and a built-in storage cupboard. Double doors lead into a stunning kitchen which has been recently refurbished and finished to a very high standard. Fitted base and wall units provide abundant storage while wooden worktops allow ample space for food preparation. The kitchen also boasts integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, an oven, a gas hob, an extractor hood, a dishwasher, and a washing machine.
At the end of the hallway lies the master bedroom which enjoys views over (and direct access to) the shared gardens as well as built-in mirrored wardrobes and an en-suite WC which is designed to a very high standard with stylish tiling and modern finishes. The bright and spacious second bedroom exudes period charm with an original feature fireplace and shutters as well as chic neutral décor. Completing the accommodation is a contemporary bathroom with a shower-over-bath, a WC, a pedestal basin, and a blend of on-trend subway style and printed tiles. The flat benefits from an efficient gas central heating system and the master bedroom door to the garden is double-glazed.
Externally, the new owners will benefit from access to rear communal gardens as well as a private garden to the front and on-street parking, for which residents can apply for a permit, subject to a fee.
