The flat's front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall (with handy built-in storage) which sets the tone for the interiors to follow, with softtoned décor and sleek timber flooring. Straight ahead, a generous, dual-aspect reception space flows openly from a comfortable living area with ample room for lounge furnishings, into a seated dining area, with excellent built-in storage, ideal for both casual meals and formal entertaining. The sociable, open flow is perfectly suited to the contemporary lifestyle, and the reception area is beautifully enhanced by elegant coving, traditional presses, and tasteful styling and presentation.
Next door, a well-equipped kitchen houses a selection of modern white cabinetry, paired with downlit, wood-styled worktops and neatly accommodating an integrated oven, a gas hob, and an extractor hood, along with a freestanding fridge/freezer and washing machine.
The flat's two airy bedrooms are quietly located on the second floor. A well-proportioned double bedroom, with built-in wardrobes, frames wonderful, far-reaching views via a wide, front-facing window, and is stylishly presented with a dark feature wall and white oakstyled flooring. Set to the rear, enjoying a tranquil, leafy aspect, the remaining sleeping area, currently arranged as a home office, promises either a cosy double or spacious single bedroom setting.
Finally, a contemporary bathroom features a bathtub with an overhead shower, a WC and a basin set into storage, all set against a neutral backdrop with stone-effect tiling and chic mosaic accents. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
The flat is on the doorstep of scenic Figgate Park, Duddingston Loch, and Holyrood Park, and within easy reach of Portobello beach.
On-street parking in the vicinity is conveniently unrestricted.
Nestled at the foot of majestic Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags, Duddingston offers a unique village setting, yet is just over two miles east of the city centre. With the vast open spaces of Holyrood Park and Duddingston Loch to the west, and the golden sands of Portobello Beach to the east, residents have some of the capital's most outstanding natural landscapes and views right on their doorstep. And of course there is no shortage of outdoor pursuits, from walking, cycling and hiking in Holyrood Park, to a round of golf at Duddingston Golf Club.
The area is served by fantastic local services and amenities, particularly on nearby Portobello High Street, which is lined with an array of traditional shops and business, plus a handful of thriving cafes, pubs and restaurants. Popular with families looking for a more relaxed lifestyle (without leaving the city limits), Duddingston is within the catchment area for excellent local schools, and its close proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass and the A1 allows swift and convenient travel across the city and further afield. Nearby Brunstane train station and several bus routes also provide comprehensive public transport links, day and night.
