Exuding period charm, this traditional terraced house in Newington lies within the Craigmillar Park conservation area and enjoys four/five bedrooms, one/two reception rooms, and two bathrooms, plus front and rear gardens and access to priority parking area B1. The property offers an exciting opportunity for modernisation, giving the new owner an opportunity to create a modern, yet characterful home to their own tastes and requirements. A practical entrance vestibule welcomes you inside and leads through to an airy hallway with excellent built-in storage. To the right of the hall lies a living room, where a soaring high ceiling (adorned with exquisitely detailed cornicing) and a large southwest-facing bay window create a wonderfully light and airy ambience, and a flexible floorspace allows for various configurations of lounge furniture. A fireplace flanked by an Edinburgh Press creates a focal point in the room. Along the hall, you reach a spacious kitchen, where room is provided for a seated dining/ breakfasting area. The kitchen is currently fitted with wall and base cabinets and includes a cooker and a fridge/freezer, as well as a traditional clothes pulley. The kitchen is supplemented by built-in storage, a utility room (with built-in storage and shelving), and a laundry room. A modern shower room is also accessed from the kitchen, comprising a walk-in enclosure, a WC-suite, and a mirrored, wall-mounted vanity cabinet. Completing the ground-floor accommodation is a versatile room which could be used as a dining room or a fifth bedroom, if desired. A sweeping staircase (with ornate balustrades) leads to a first-floor landing with storage and a wonderful cupola skylight, where four bedrooms, a bathroom, and a floored attic are accessed. The bedrooms comprise three doubles and a versatile single, with the latter offering potential to be used as a home office. Two of the doubles feature Edinburgh Presses, including the principal bedroom which also boasts beautiful cornicing and a southwest-facing bay window with a traditional panelled surround. The bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, and a WC-suite. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure a warm and economically run home all year round. Externally, the house is accompanied by front and rear gardens. The front garden enjoys a sunny aspect, whilst the spacious rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and features a wealth of leafy trees and shrubbery. Parking on Mayfield Road falls under priority parking area B1. Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, cooker, washing machine, and fridge/freezer will be included in the sale. Newington, Edinburgh Located on the south side of the capital, approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, suiting every stage of life, and is popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan coffee shops, pubs, bars, and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This is heightened further during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen's Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. Newington is within the catchment area for well-regarded schools and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
