Set on the second-floor flat of a handsome Edwardian tenement on the edge of Holyrood Park, this two-bedroom traditional flat enjoys an enviable location in the sought-after Abbeyhill district of Edinburgh.
The immaculate home offers bright, spacious accommodation including desirable open plan living space and comes with access to a well-maintained shared garden and unrestricted on-street parking.
Approached via a secure communal entrance and stairs to the second floor, the flat's front door opens into an airy, high-ceilinged entrance hall (with storage) featuring a traditional clothes pulley and characterised by stripped pine flooring which flows throughout most of the appealing accommodation. Stepping into the living and dining room reveals an attractively-presented reception room where tasteful modern styling blends with a distinctively traditional backdrop and an abundance of natural daylight streams in from a westerly-facing window affording delightful rooftop views. Plentiful floorspace is available for a variety of configurations of both comfortable lounge and dining furniture and the sociable area is perfectly supplemented by an openly-adjoining kitchen. This compact, contemporary space yields impressive unobstructed views towards Calton Hill and provides stylish storage, ample workspace and an integrated oven, a hob and a fridge, whilst a washing machine is discreetly located in the built-in cupboard in the hall. Two sunny, southeast-facing bedrooms are reached at the end of the hall. The elegant principal bedroom displays the classic understated decor and presentation found throughout this immaculate property and generous dimensions promise flexibility for arranging freestanding bedroom furnishings. The remaining single bedroom echoes the flat's airy decor and cleverly maximises floorspace with a charming built-in cabin bed and a matching wardrobe. Completing the accommodation on offer is a bright, modern shower room featuring a glazed shower cubicle, a WC, vanity storage with a basin inset, and a chrome towel radiator. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round efficiency and warmth.
Externally, the flat enjoys access to a well-maintained communal garden, in addition to the scenic open parkland of adjacent Holyrood Park. Parking in the area is conveniently unrestricted.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances and the washing machine.
Situated just a stone's throw from Edinburgh's iconic Royal Mile, Abbeyhill offers easy access to world-class entertainment and shopping in the bustling heart of the capital. The area is currently enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to its wealth of independent shops and vibrant restaurants, pubs and cafes in the immediate area. It also benefits from being close to Meadowbank Retail Park, which boasts a Sainsbury's, a Marks & Spencer's Outlet, and TK Maxx, as well as many additional high street and fast-food outlets. From 2021, the reopening of the Meadowbank Sports Centre will offer a range of first-class sports facilities, whilst those who prefer to exercise in the great outdoors can always opt for a walk up Salisbury Crags and Arthur's Seat or a slightly more leisurely climb up Calton Hill. The renowned Royal Commonwealth Pool is also easily accessible. There is excellent public and private schooling nearby, from nursery level upwards. The area is extremely well-connected, with a regular day and night bus service and good access to commuter routes, while Waverley Train Station is within walking distance.
