Set in the very heart of desirable Stockbridge, with delightful local shops, cafés and bistros right on its doorstep, this two-bedroom (plus a box room) third-floor tenement flat promises one of the capital's most exclusive cosmopolitan addresses; in walking distance of the city centre and enviably close to the much-loved Inverleith Park, viewable from the property, and the Water of Leith.
A fantastic city home for professionals, as well as an appealing rental opportunity, the flat's spacious, airy rooms enjoy neutral décor, offset by elegant period features and the warm wood tones of stripped original flooring and internal doors.
Approached via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the flat welcomes you into a large central hall housing useful storage. Bathed in all day sun courtesy of a south-facing bay window framed by a handsome panelled surround, the generous living room represents an elegantly-finished space for relaxation and yields pleasant views of the bustling shopping area below. Well-preserved features incorporate an ornate ceiling rose and cornicing, and an attractive arched recess with display shelving. Across the hall, overlooking the rear garden towards Inverleith Park, is an impressively sized kitchen with an intimate seated dining area and built-in pantry storage.
This convivial space is fitted with a good selection of contemporary cabinets complemented by chrome fittings, ample granite-effect worktops and rustically textured splashback tiling. An integrated oven and a gas hob, paired with a stylish chimney-style hood, accompanies a freestanding dishwasher, a tall fridge freezer and a washing machine. A traditional clothes pulley is also included. Also located within the flat are two spacious double bedrooms adorned with classic cornicing; one is supplemented by a south-facing aspect, the other shares the kitchen's favourable leafy outlook. A box room provides an excellent storage area, and could easily be utilised as a home office. Completing the accommodation on offer is a bright bathroom comprising a WC, a chic countertop basin and a bathtub with an overhead shower. The property is heated via a gas central heating system.
Externally, the flat benefits from shared access to a charming shared garden featuring a lush lawn sheltered by mature trees. Controlled on-street parking falls under the Zone N3.
