Situated in Marchmont, opposite the Meadows, 18 (3F2) Melville Terrace enjoys fantastic amenities, coffee shops and eateries on its doorstep, as well as being within easy walking distance to the historic Old Town, the New Town, Waverley Station, and Edinburgh’s best universities.
A secure shared stairwell takes you to the front door, which opens into a generous hall where understated décor, pine flooring, matching doors and wood accents, and cornicing set the tone for the accommodation to follow. On your right, you step into a living room, which is lit by twin sash-and-case windows framing leafy views and overlooking The Meadows. This well-proportioned reception area offers flexibility for various furniture layouts, all arranged around a striking monochrome fireplace, flanked by an open Edinburgh Press. The room is enhanced by exquisite cornicing and a ceiling rose, and affords access to a handy box room. Across the hall, a kitchen enjoys similar proportions and boasts a sunny aspect with garden views. A wide selection of contemporary cabinets is framed by rich wood worktops and stylish splashback tiling, and is replete with appliances. An alcove with fitted shelving offers pantry storage and the generous dimensions of the kitchen allow for a large dining table and chairs set next to a handsome fireplace.
The flat’s airy atmosphere and tranquil, understated finish is continued in two double bedrooms, both carpeted for comfort and featuring period fireplaces. The larger bedroom enjoys the same sunny aspect and garden views as the kitchen, whilst the remaining sleeping area overlooks The Meadows. Finally, a modern shower room and a separate two-piece WC complete the accommodation. The flat is heated by a gas central heating system.
Externally, residents enjoy access to a shared, leafy rear garden with an enviably sunny aspect, whilst the much-loved Meadows are directly across the road. Controlled parking on Melville Terrace falls under Zone 7.
