Part of a traditional stone-built tenement in highly sought-after Blackhall, 7/3 Marischal Place offers classical proportions and a fantastic amount of space, enjoying well-presented interiors and well-retained period features.
Reached by a secure communal entrance and stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into a welcoming hall lined with wooden doors and honey-coloured wooden floorboards. It offers a deep store cupboard and leads to the right into the living room. This generous reception area, framed by a handsome feature fireplace with period tiling, enjoys a light and airy ambience fronted by two large windows. A dado rail and a shelved recess bring additional textures to the room. To the rear of the flat with leafy garden views, the dining kitchen catches the eye with its striking decoration and multi-coloured splashback tiles. It is fitted with a sweep of timber-effect cabinets and generous wooden worktops, housing a breakfast bar and room for a table. The design incorporates a pantry-style cupboard and appliances.
To the front of the home, the double bedroom is a generous space that can accommodate a great selection of bedside furnishings, whilst a sizeable box room, accessed from the living area, offers excellent versatility to suit the needs of the owner, whether used for storage, as a nursery, or a home office. Finally, an exquisite four-piece bathroom, enveloped in marble-effect tiling, boasts a double-ended freestanding bathtub and a quadrant shower, as well as a traditional clothes pulley. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, the flat has access to a well-tended communal garden that is laid to lawn and to unrestricted on-street parking within the vicinity.
