Closing date set for Thursday 27th February 2020 at 12 noon. Forming part of a B-listed semi-detached Georgian villa in the coastal town of Portobello, within a historic conservation area, this beautifully-presented, extended lower villa is characterised by wonderfully bright and spacious rooms and lovingly-preserved period features, blended with contemporary interior design. Externally, the property is accompanied by a private, west-facing rear garden and benefits from unrestricted on-street parking. This exquisite lower villa promises the best of both worlds, with picturesque Portobello beach at the end of the street and the city centre just over three miles away. Approached via a private, southeast-facing front garden, an entrance and vestibule shared with just one other property leads to the flat's front door, where an airy, high-ceilinged hall brings you inside. Incorporating a deep built-in storage cupboard and offering space for furniture, the hall conveys a welcoming first impression with crisp-white décor, classic cornicing, a dado rail and rustic flagstones. On your left, you step into the impressive living room. Lit by twin sash-and-case windows (with panelled surrounds and working shutters), allowing southeasterly light to stream in throughout the day, this elegant reception room is filled with handsome original features, including an ornate ceiling rose and cornicing, a picture rail and a striking sandstone fireplace equipped with a Morsø Squirrel multi-fuel stove and flanked by two Edinburgh Presses. From the main hall, a further hallway (with storage) flows through to the kitchen. Flooded with natural light from a combination of traditional sash windows, skylights and a full-height picture window, the kitchen incorporates space for a dining area and a snug, and features a semi-glazed door onto the garden. The galley-style fitted kitchen provides excellent storage and workspace, and houses a range of integrated appliances, including an electric oven, a gas hob, an extractor hood, a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher, and a washing machine. Returning back to the main hall, you reach two double bedrooms, both of which enjoy splendid sash windows (with working shutters) onto the tranquil rear garden. Each bedroom enjoys classic-contemporary décor, period cornicing and large built-in wardrobes. A luxury shower room completes the accommodation and comprises a deluxe walk-in shower with a tiled surround, a countertop basin, and a hidden-cistern toilet. The home is heated by an efficient gas central heating system. Outside, the flat boasts its own private front and rear gardens, with the secluded, sun-trap rear garden featuring a lawn, a patio, and a shed for handy external storage. Unrestricted on-street parking can be found on Pittville Street.
