Property highlight: Wonderfully unique split-level garden flat forming part of a handsome traditional villa
Situated in highly-desirable Murrayfield, less than two miles from the heart of the capital, close to excellent local schooling and the picturesque Water of Leith walkway, this tastefully-presented and wonderfully unique split-level garden flat forms part of a handsome traditional villa and offers modern, minimalist interiors and versatile accommodation with three bedrooms and multiple reception rooms, including an impressive, double-height, southfacing sitting area.
Two large private patios/garden areas and a multi-car driveway complete this desirable proposition, which is in move-in condition and will no doubt appeal to a range of buyers, from professionals with families, to downsizers and rental investors. The property is well located to schools catering for all age groups including private sector schooling, particularly Mary Erskine, Stewart's Meville and St George's.
The flat is accessed to the side of the villa, where the front door opens into an exceptionally spacious living room, boasting a vaulted double-height ceiling and bathed in swathes of natural light from spectacular gable windows to each end. This sunny, inviting room (with rear garden access) is presented with crisp-white décor, a cohesive finish throughout the home, warmly enhanced by an oak-styled floor. Descending a short flight of stairs to the lower level, you reach an airy reception hall. Immediately on your right is an attractive contemporary kitchen fitted around a sociable seated dining area and boasting a wide selection of beech-toned cabinets and a generous countertop illuminated by downlighting. The room accommodates a freestanding electric cooker and a dishwasher, with space for further goods, and is openly adjoined by a discreet utility area. Continuing along the hall, you reach a second reception area, identically styled to the living room and ideal for formal dining or as a cosy family room. Leading off the second reception area is a bright, plushly-carpeted master bedroom, with a dual-aspect outlook and French doors opening onto the rear garden. The home's two remaining double bedrooms are accessed from the hall, filled with light from favourably south-facing windows and carpeted for extra comfort. Both rooms enjoy the charming focal feature of decorative, cast-iron period fireplaces. Finally, a modern shower room completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a WC, a basin with vanity storage, a towel radiator, and a shower enclosure. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Outside, the flat boasts two large, private enclosed garden and patio areas, laid with gravel and paving for easy maintenance and including a useful shed. These generous outdoor areas offer unique, perfect settings for relaxing outdoors as a family or entertaining with friends and guests during the warmer months. A gravelled front driveway provides private parking for multiple vehicles. Extras: The property is sold as seen, the fridge and indoor & outdoor furniture are not included in the sale. EPC Rating: C.
