Set with a commanding B-listed Georgian tenement in the cosmopolitan Shore district, this main door flat has been carefully renovated and returned to its original splendour. Brimming with period features, the property offers an abundance of spacious and flexible accommodation over two levels, including three double bedrooms (two en-suites), two splendid reception rooms and a stylish breakfasting kitchen.
Approached via steps and a raised terrace, the handsome front door swings open to reveal a traditional entrance vestibule, where original flagstones and a classic fanlight instantly convey the calibre of the accommodation to follow. The stunning central hall is characterised by its staggering proportions and beautiful refinished floorboards, which continue into the principal reception room: the vast living room. A picture of period elegance, the room features two spectacular sash-and-case windows (with split louvre shutters), chalk white panelling and a traditional fireplace. The exquisite drawing room, boasts a charming fireplace and would lend itself to a variety of configurations. A stylish addition to this classic Georgian home is the contemporary breakfasting kitchen, which is flooded with light from a southwest-facing window overlooking the rear garden. The rear-facing master bedroom, enjoys outstanding proportions and a chic en-suite bathroom. Downstairs the lower hallway accommodates two rear-facing double bedrooms: one with an immaculate en-suite shower room and the other with a rustic exposed stone fireplace. The good sized box room on this level offers fantastic potential for conversion into a family bathroom (subject to the relevant permissions), and is supplemented by two further storage cupboards. The practical utility room provides handy laundry facilities, and a back door to a private strip of decked garden area with shared communal gardens at the rear, accessed through the common stair next door. The gas central heating system was upgraded (mid-2012) and original cast-iron radiators reinstated throughout.
Situated approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital’s maritime industry. Like much of Edinburgh’s northern seaboard, The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of most desirable postcodes in the capital.
