Situated within the heart of the popular market town of Dalkeith, this characterful four-bedroom main-door double upper flat boasts generous proportions with a wonderful balance of period features and immaculate, contemporary interiors. Occupying two storeys (the first and second floors) of a traditional townhouse within this conservation area, with local amenities on the doorstep, this unique property additionally enjoys proximity to leafy Dalkeith Country Park, and excellent transport links across the county and into the capital.
Entered via a private ground-floor entrance, stairs lead to a wide first-floor landing, naturally lit by a large, traditional sash window, with soaring ceilings, crisp-white walls and contrasting dove-grey carpeting setting the tone for the exceptional interiors to follow. The landing leads you into an elegant living room, a generously-proportioned room offering flexible floorspace for a boundless configuration of comfortable seating furniture. Here, the contemporary décor is enhanced by dual aspect windows, ensuring natural light all day long and giving rise to a serene, airy ambience. The adjoining kitchen is centred around a large dining area, with a pale wood-styled floor, framed by two front-facing sash windows, creating a perfect sociable space for everyday meals and formal entertaining. The kitchen boasts chic, white handless cabinets, with a contrasting grey-toned worktop, trendy white metro-tiled splashbacks and under-cabinet lighting. Incorporated is a range of integrated appliances (a hob, an oven, an extractor hood, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer) and there is further storage within a fitted larder cupboard. A separate utility cupboard is a useful, discrete laundry area, with space and plumbing for a washing machine. Also on this level is a quietly-situated, sunny double bedroom (with built-in storage) which could alternatively be used as a private study or a cosy sitting room. Situated off the landing, a handy WC completes the first-floor accommodation.
Illuminated by a large sash window, the impressive period stairwell curves upwards to the second-floor landing, which in turn gives access to a large cupboard, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom, comfortably carpeted and neutrally decorated, boasts an exceptionally generous footprint, and further enjoys the airy open aspect to the front, with views across the surrounding rooftops. Double bedrooms two and three (also featuring cosy décor) enjoy quiet aspects to each side. Bedroom three, quietly set to the rear of the flat, has a characterful period fireplace, with a cast iron insert. The modern family bathroom comes complete with a WC, a bath with a glazed screen and a rainfall showerhead, and a washbasin with an illuminated, mirrored vanity cabinet. Gas central heating ensures year-round warmth and comfort throughout this spacious accommodation. Parking is available in the surrounding streets.

Nestled in the beautiful Midlothian countryside, yet just eight miles southeast of Edinburgh, the historic town of Dalkeith has seen its popularity soar in recent years, thanks to the reopening of the Borders Railway between the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh, calling at Eskbank station. With its picturesque setting between the northern and southern forks of the River Esk, not to mention fantastic transport links and local amenities, Dalkeith is an ideal choice for families and professionals looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital. In the traditional town centre a diverse blend of independent shops and high-street retailers cater for everyday essentials, and these are supplemented by several large supermarkets nearby. Residents of Dalkeith also have no shortage of outdoor pursuits right on their doorstep, from tranquil riverside walks to a relaxed round of golf at one of the many prestigious courses nearby.
