Enjoying a wonderfully leafy setting in desirable Murrayfield, close to the scenic Water of Leith and within walking distance of Haymarket train station and Edinburgh's West End, this two-bedroom first-floor upper villa promises a stylish city home in a prime location. Set within a handsome period townhouse and enjoying access to a sunny private garden area, the villa is immaculately presented with modern, yet classically toned interiors and incorporates appealing open-plan living and characterful authentic features.
On opening the front door, you ascend a plushly carpeted stairwell, adorned with decorative plasterwork and flooded in natural light from a magnificent cupola window. En-route to the main accommodation, the stairs take in a first-floor landing area with plentiful space for furniture before reaching an airy second-floor landing affording access to all rooms. Located to the rear of the property is a generous reception area and kitchen, with an open-plan layout perfectly suited to everyday living and social gatherings with friends. Benefiting from a high ceiling, ornamented with traditional cornicing, as well as crisp neutral decor and co-ordinated carpeting, the reception area creates a convivial space for relaxation and dining and includes a useful store cupboard. A coal-effect fire set against a characterful fire surround adds a charming, homely touch to the space. The bright contemporary fitted kitchen boasts a wide selection of attractive timber-styled cabinetry with atmospheric downlighting, excellent workspace and splashback tiling. An integrated fridge, a freezer, an oven and a gas hob (with an extractor hood) accompany an under counter washing machine and a dishwasher. Heightened by a sunny southerly-facing aspect and far-reaching views are two spacious double bedrooms; both carpeted and flawlessly presented with soft dove grey decor and crisp white cornicing. Occupying a remarkable footprint, the largest bedroom is further supplemented by a delightful bay window and built-in storage, whilst the second bedroom features access to eaves storage and an enchanting period fireplace. Finally, offset by white tiling with an attractively patterned trim, is a bathroom replete with a modern WC, a pedestal basin and a bathtub with an overhead shower. The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system.
Externally, located directly opposite the villa, is a vast well-maintained communal garden. A delightful spot for summer barbeques, this southerly-facing area is neatly laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees, with 20% of the land, including a vegetable allotment, owned exclusively by the property. Controlled on-street parking in the vicinity falls under priority parking area B9.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, blinds, selected light fittings and kitchen goods are included in the sale.
