The front door to the flat, reached via a secure shared entrance and traditional stairwell to the third floor, opens into a central hall that sets the scene, and standards, for the following accommodation. Lined with four-panel wooden doors and decorated in light, neutral hues, it provides a warm invitation and convenient built-in storage for coats and shoes. The living/dining room is to the right, impressing with its contemporary styling and wealth of well-retained period features, from the wood-panelled bay window whose curvature forms the perfect dining area, to the highly ornate cornice work and picture rail that help emphasise the lofty, classical dimensions.
Spaciously proportioned, this delightful living space also has a handsome period fireplace, set beside an Edinburgh Press cupboard, which creates an ideal focal point for arranging lounge furniture. The room is bathed in warm afternoon sun from a southeast-facing aspect and offers spectacular rooftop views from the bay window to Calton Hill.
In the kitchen, white-gloss cabinets, with chrome accents, are arranged in an L-shape along the base and wall, providing ample storage alongside granite-inspired worksurfaces. The modern style is finished with olive-toned splashback tiles, bringing a welcomed dash of colour to the monochrome palette. It incorporates an integrated oven and gas hob, with a slimline extractor hood, an integrated washing machine, an integrated dishwasher, and a freestanding fridge/freezer.
To the rear of the flat, the two double bedrooms are both spaciously proportioned and attractively presented, enjoying the same keen eye for detail found throughout. The master bedroom, with two built-in cupboards and soft carpeting, also offers the added luxury of a high-spec en-suite shower room. The second bedroom, on the other hand, has stripped wooden floorboards and a charming feature wall.
Completing the accommodation on offer, the three-piece family bathroom (and overhead shower) is presented with striking metro-style wall tiles for a contemporary take on a traditional look, perfectly in-line with the character of the property. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure comfort and efficiency.
Externally, there is a large communal garden to the rear that is well-maintained and mostly laid to lawn, providing an idyllic space for relaxing and dining in the sun. Conveniently, parking along Bellevue Road is controlled and accessible with a residents' permit (Zone N1).
Situated on the eastern fringes of the desirable New Town, Bellevue is popular with professionals, families and downsizers alike thanks to its varied housing options, from Georgian terraces and Victorian tenements to 1930s villas and modern apartments. Whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity of a largely residential area, Bellevue locals are a short stroll from the cosmopolitan New Town. Here, bustling Broughton Street has retained all the charm of a traditional high street with its array of delightful independent shops and businesses, dotted in-between a selection of pubs, bars, and restaurants.
Bellevue is ideally placed for all the capital's top cultural attractions, particularly the Playhouse Theatre, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. For sport and fitness enthusiasts there is a choice of gyms and fitness studios in the vicinity; nearby Inverleith Park and Calton Hill are also perfect for keeping fit outdoors and yield stunning views of the capital. Bellevue provides primary and secondary schooling and is also convenient for a selection of private childcare and education options.
