Situated on tranquil Ravenscroft Street in desirable Gilmerton, this former Post Office has been imaginatively converted into a pair of one-bedroom semi-detached cottages that are virtually identical in size and layout. Transformed from top to bottom, the building has undergone complete renovation works, including a new roof and extensive repair, restoration and insulation of the external walls, as well as immaculate garden landscaping and a flawless interior finish. Externally the rustic sandstone façade has been sympathetically restored and enhanced with new double-glazed sash-and-case windows and composite doors, leaving a traditional inset post box as a charming reminder of the building’s heritage. Stepping into the stunning, double-height kitchen and living room, the space is flooded with natural light courtesy of dual aspect windows and a trio of skylights, as well as patio doors onto the southeast-facing private garden. The Scandinavian-inspired interior design includes elegant grey oak-effect flooring and crisp white walls, contrasted with a striking graphite-gloss fitted kitchen. The sleek, handleless cabinetry incorporates a convivial breakfast peninsula, and is replete with a range of integrated appliances, namely an electric induction hob, a concealed extractor, an electric single oven, a washing machine and a fridge/freezer. Designed as a blank canvas, the living room offers flexible scope for a choice of seating and dining arrangements, and is wired for a wall-mounted television. From here a moveable ladder allows access to the fantastic mezzanine level, which benefits from a built-in cupboard and would lend itself to endless uses, such as a sitting room, a home office or a study. The double bedroom boasts generous built-in storage, namely a fitted wardrobe with sliding mirror doors and a large built-in cupboard. The luxurious en-suite shower room is beautifully finished with wood-effect floor tiles and grey metro style wall tiles, and features a walk-in shower with an electric power shower and a frameless glazed screen. Brand new double glazing and composite doors, as well as extensive insulation and modern electric radiators ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. Both cottages enjoy a private southeast-facing garden, both of which can be accessed externally via the side lane. The gardens are securely fenced for maximum privacy and seclusion, and have been landscaped with neat paving, artificial turf and raised beds for easy maintenance. Ample, unrestricted on-street parking is available directly adjacent. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings and light fixtures to be included in the sale. EPC Ratings - D.
