Enviably located in Hillside in the New Town conservation area, this four-bedroom third/top-floor flat boasts impeccable interiors with period features, as well as an unrivalled location within easy walking distance of the city centre, Waverley train station, and the thriving amenities of fashionable Leith. The attractive property forms part of a stunning A-listed Georgian tenement designed in the 1820s by the leading Scottish architect, W.H. Playfair, who was responsible for many of Edinburgh’s neoclassical landmarks including the National Monument on nearby Calton Hill. Enjoying classical proportions and symmetrical design, the outstanding home offers a contemporary city lifestyle for families and professionals alike.
Reached by a secure communal entrance and stairway, the flat’s front door opens with an immaculate welcome into a reception hall, decorated with a neutral palette and plush carpeting. Lined with six-panel wooden doors, which bring a rich honey-colour to the design, the hall incorporates an abundance of built-in storage before flowing into the spacious living room. Here, contemporary light grey décor creates a relaxed environment for everyday use, whilst a 12-pane sash window bathes the elegant space in natural light, providing classic timber shutters for evening quiet. The inviting room is heightened by a lofty ceiling framed by period cornicing; it also features a useful cupboard for storage and ample floor space for comfortable lounge furniture. In the dining kitchen, soft décor with a hint of lavender emphasises an airy ambience, further reinforced by the spacious floorplan, which accommodates a 4+ person dining table for evening meals together. Timber-toned cabinets and stone-effect worktops bring a homely feel to the design, coupled with white splashback tiles patterned with various fruits. The setup incorporates a built-in wine rack/bottle holder, a panty-style cupboard, and freestanding appliances (electric hob, fridge-freezer, and washer).
Located throughout the home are four beautifully-presented bedrooms, which enjoy soft carpeting for optimal comfort and light pastel décor for a cheerful ambience. The master, second, and third bedrooms all further boast exquisite feature fireplaces for added decoration and very generous dimensions, with space for a double bed, freestanding furniture, and a study desk. A fourth bedroom provides a versatile single space to suit the new owners’ needs, with alternative use as a home office.
Additionally, the second bedroom comes with built-in storage. Finishing the home is a pristine three-piece family bathroom in white, including an overhead shower and a glazed screen. Efficient gas central heating ensures year-round warmth, alongside a mix of (recently-installed) double glazing to the front and traditional single-pane sash windows to the rear (all with working wooden shutters for draft-proofing).
For a modest yearly fee, the flat also has access to the idyllic Regent Gardens, which still retain their early 19th-century structure, offering sheltered walks beside mature trees, a vast lawn for relaxing in the sun, and stunning views of Arthur’s Seat. Opposite the tenement, convenient controlled parking is also available with a residents’ permit (Zone N1).
