A Well Presented 2nd Floor (top) Flat Nestled Within the Prestigious East Suffolk Park Development in View of Arthur's Seat and Offering a Sense of Peaceful Escape Only A Short Drive Away From Edinburgh City Centre. 8/5 East Suffolk Park is located within Darroch House, named after the professor who initiated the construction (C.1917) of these former Edinburgh University student residences. The building forms part of the wider enclave of B Listed architecture within approximately 12 acres of original, landscaped grounds that were further developed to a high specification around 2005. The well proportioned second floor apartment is very attractively presented in light, neutral décor throughout, with features such as picture rails and ceiling cornicing, and benefits from modern, high calibre fixtures and fittings within the traditional original structure. The combination boiler feeds the traditionally styled central heating radiators. Living-Dining Room The open plan arrangement enjoys abundant natural light via windows on three aspects and includes an expansive, yet private outlook over the mature gardens toward Arthur's Seat. The room's character is enhanced by traditional twin, 4-pane casement windows with deep sills and the fresh décor is complemented by a neutral-toned fitted carpet. Kitchen The generously proportioned kitchen includes plentiful base and wall units in a modern maple finish with contrasting granite worktops and a tiled splash-back to work surfaces. Recessed downlighters enhance the ambience created by the window, which offers a view to the gardens and greenery beyond. All the integrated appliances are made by Bosch and include dishwasher, 4-ring gas hob with stainless steel extractor hood & chimney, tall fridge-freezer, twin “eye-level” ovens/grill, plus microwave oven and washer/drier. Decor is light and neutral and the window recess provides additional floor space to help accommodate a breakfasting table. Bathroom The spacious bathroom has modern, white 4-piece sanitary ware including a separate shower cubicle with its boiler-fed power shower. Tiled to wet areas and with neutral décor, the bathroom includes ceiling downlighters, a heated ladder towel rail and space enough for added storage cabinets. Vestibule & Hallway The property is entered via the vestibule from the bright and well maintained common stair which includes a high quality carpet and attractive timber/steel bannister. The welcoming hallway is presented in light décor with ceiling downlighters and includes carbon-monoxide monitor, smoke detector, door entry video-phone and central heating thermostat. There are two spacious integral cupboards, one housing the boiler. Double Bedroom 1 A well proportioned bedroom, presented in neutral décor and fitted carpet with the added attraction of a twin-window recess that offers a quiet outlook. Double Bedroom 2 An equally well presented and proportioned second bedroom. EXTERIOR There is private residents’ and visitor parking to the side of the building. The expansive shared grounds are exceptionally well manicured and comprise grassland bordered by a diversity of mature trees, with planted areas including a beautifully designed azalea garden. There are also enclosed tennis courts for residents’ use. The buildings and common grounds are factored by Ross & Liddell at a cost of approximately £95/month, which includes buildings insurance. LOCATION This sought after location, in the shadow of Arthur's Seat, offers the rare benefit of a semi-rural ambience within easy reach of Edinburgh City Centre. A diverse array of independent retailers, restaurants, bars and typical city centre services are available in the bustling Newington district, whilst Cameron Toll shopping centre, which includes a major Sainbury's supermarket, is equally accessible. Lying within the catchment for several primary and secondary schools (see ESPC for details), the property is also well located for accessing Edinburgh University campuses. Open green spaces such as Holyrood Park and Braid Hills are not far away and there is a diversity of surrounding golf courses. The Royal Commonwealth Swimming Pool and sports facilities are also easily reached from here. Local bus services provide regular connections to the heart of the city centre and beyond.
