An impressively proportioned and centrally located two bedroom second floor Georgian flat in the heart of the New Town. This north eastern section of Great King Street makes up one quarter of the four near-identical palace blocks of the Second New Town's central avenue; a significant part of one of the most important and best preserved examples of urban planning in Britain. Great King Street, feued by the Heriot Trust, was part of the first extension of the New Town planned by Robert Reid and William Sibbald between 1814 and 1823. Accessed via a secure entry-phone system into a well-maintained communal hallway and stair, the property retains numerous period features including sash and case windows with working shutters, fireplaces, sanded floors and decorative cornice work. Of particular note is the original flagstone flooring in the hallway. The bespoke kitchen (by Colin Parker Furniture) and the spacious sitting room are located to the front of the building whilst the two double bedrooms are quietly located to the rear. Both bedrooms enjoy a pleasant and far-reaching outlook. There is a useful large box room providing excellent storage space which can be accessed from both the sitting room and the master bedroom. Completing the internal accommodation is the bathroom, a shower room and a separate WC. Proprietors can apply for access to the nearby Drummond Place Gardens and also to the extensive Queen Street Gardens on payment of a modest annual fee.
