Situated within walking distance of the capital's finest shops, restaurants, the train station and the heart of the city centre, in Edinburgh's cosmopolitan West End, this three/four-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment is the ultimate statement in stylish, contemporary city living. Arranged over the fourth and fifth floors of an exclusive, gated development, the apartment commands spectacular views over the
land and cityscape from its unrivalled private outdoor space including a remarkable 1100 sq. foot terrace and a separate balcony on the fifth floor, plus a generous fourth floor balcony.
Accessed via an entry phone system, a lift (or stairs) leads to the fourth floor. Here, a spacious entrance hall (with fitted storage cupboards) welcomes you into the penthouse which offers immaculately finished interiors in a palette of crisp white; this, together with recessed downlights and an abundance of natural light, highlight the quality fittings and features, including oak doors and hardwood flooring, found throughout the property. To the right is a generous living room with twin floor-to-ceiling windows, boasting an integrated Bose surround sound system, vertical radiators, an integrated sliding door and a TV/ entertainment-point with concealed cabling, creating a crisp, contemporary look. Directly opposite is a magnificent and sunny kitchen with a sociable open-plan design to the dining area featuring a vaulted double-height ceiling, large windows and French doors leading to the southwest-facing balcony.
Ultra-modern and stylish in design, the kitchen boasts state-of-the-art units and integrated appliances including a 5-ring gas hob with
a concealed extractor hood, an electric oven, a microwave oven, dishwasher and fridge.
Integrated downlights highlight the large solid wood worktop space, ensuring that the kitchen delivers on form and function. The dining area can accommodate a large table and chairs and with the French doors immediately opposite, forms a superb space for dining and entertaining all year round. Accessed from the kitchen is a utility cupboard creating a discreet laundry area, extra storage and space for a freezer (included in the sale).
Also situated on this floor is a generous double bedroom, fitted with built-in storage and a thick pile carpet, plus a contemporary shower room fitted with a shower, WC-suite with an insert basin and vanity storage, and a towel radiator.
Stairs from the dining area leads to the fifth floor where a landing (with built-in storage) affords access to the bedrooms, home office and a secondary principle access leading to the communal area. The master bedroom enjoys access to a balcony and has been fitted with a superb range of double wardrobes. It boasts a luxurious four-piece en-suite bathroom with his-and-hers basins, a bathtub and a separate shower. Next door is another generous double bedroom, also enjoying fitted storage and an en-suite shower room. Finally, a home office (which could also be utilised as a fourth bedroom) is currently set-up as both a study area and a large sports room, separated by double built-in storage cupboards. From here, a door gives access to an outstanding rooftop terrace of over 1100 sq. feet.
Fully paved for low maintenance, and reassuringly secure for children and pets, this magnificent outdoor space commands outstanding city views and could easily be turned into a very generous rooftop garden bathing in sun nearly all day long. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout. A beautifully landscaped communal garden, with sculptures, a water feature, areas laid to lawn and walkways can be found.
