Property highlight: An exceptional two bedroom, raised ground-floor apartment situated in Bruntsfield
Closing date set for Thursday 14th December 2023 at 12.00pm.
This two-bedroom raised ground-floor apartment is an exceptional residence that boasts an enviable location in the much sought-after Merchiston and Greenhill conservation area, set within a striking A-listed Victorian Baronial villa (1870-3). The city home further boasts high-end modern interiors adorned with eye-catching period features and premium finishings, including a statement kitchen and two washrooms. It also has a beautiful aspect set beside Bruntsfield Links, with delightful leafy green views to the front and rear. From the front, you can also enjoy the best of Edinburgh’s firework displays (including those at Hogmanay) and when the trees lose their leaves, you can admire views of the iconic Edinburgh Castle. Inside the apartment, accessed via an integrated video entry system, you are greeted by a library hall that provides a lovely space for reading and a glimpse of the quality interiors. It offers a generous storage cupboard too, and leads right into the open-plan drawing room lounge with kitchen.
This reception area instantly captivates. It has a large footprint and elegant décor, pairing subtle hues with an easy-upkeep floor. Well-retained period details catch the eye too, from the incredibly ornate cornice work, to the handsome fireplace (inset with an electric fire). A sweeping bay window ensures an abundance of natural light, whilst also framing an inspiring view over Bruntsfield Links. Suave and homely, this reception area is perfect for everyday use. The kitchen itself has a high-spec design with modern cabinets in mocha hues and luxurious worktops. Easy-wipe splashbacks synchronise with the worktops, adding to the sophisticated aesthetic along with the seamlessly integrated appliances. Two built-in cupboards provide further storage.
Meanwhile, the two double bedrooms are set side by side, enjoying bright south-facing aspects and garden views. The principal suite has expansive proportions, with decorative cornicing, a ceiling rose, and a shelved recess. Plus, it features a quality en-suite shower room with premium tile work in earthy tones. The second double bedroom, currently arranged as an office with a king-sized sofa bed, showcases the versatility and space of the apartment. Completing the accommodation, a four-piece family bathroom has a matching style to the en-suite. It is comprised of a hidden-cistern toilet, a half-pedestal washbasin, a bath with a handheld shower, and a separate shower enclosure. Conveniently, both washrooms are fitted with shower/toothbrush sockets.
The property benefits from Hive heating, with smart meters for gas and electricity, smoke/CO2 alarms installed as per legislation, and a hardwired burglar alarm that connects to a 24/7 security centre. It has a satellite dish installed as well.
Outside the communal front door, there is also a shared space that the current owner sets with a table and chairs to enjoy summer days and to admire the fireworks and castle views. Furthermore, zoned permit parking is available for residents.
