Situated in sought-after Newington with spectacular views towards Arthur’s Seat, this main door apartment, formed over the ground floor of a detached B-listed Georgian villa (1829) displays a rich array of period features. The inspiring city residence has been sympathetically extended to provide a truly unique and attractive family home.
Planning permission is also pending for the construction of an additional five-bedroom property in the garden should the new owners wish to take advantage of this exciting opportunity.
The Georgian villa has an imposing, classical-style front door, which opens into a striking reception hall, lined with original wooden doors, varnished floorboards, and a lofty ceiling detailed with a corbel arch and a ceiling rose. Multiple storage cupboards and a handy WC cloakroom are accessible from the hall, with the generous living room on the left. Overlooking the front garden, this elegant, dual-aspect reception area is well-suited to everyday life, enriched by a tranquil ambience. It is framed by a handsome, wood-carved mantelpiece and enjoys a curved wall for added character. A smooth cornice and ceiling rose add the final touches to the inviting atmosphere.
The breakfasting kitchen is to the rear of the property, replete with timber-style cabinets and down-lit, granite-effect worktops, contrasted stylishly with vibrant splashback panels. Seamlessly integrated into the modern design are an eye-level combi oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. French doors open from here into the conservatory, which is filled with warm afternoon sunshine, providing a congenial setting for dining and unwinding with garden views. A discreet utility room adjacent to the kitchen conveniently houses a washer, whilst opposite the kitchen stairs lead to a large cellar for additional storage.
Located throughout the home, the three double bedrooms are enhanced by airy proportions and useful storage. The master bedroom, with a distinctive curved wall, enjoys access to the conservatory (via French doors), whilst the second bedroom has a lavish feature fireplace and a direct link to the WC. The third bedroom is a versatile space currently utilised as a home office. A contemporary three-piece bathroom with dual-aspect windows and suave monochrome styling completes the accommodation. Gas central heating and secondary glazing ensure year-round comfort.
Externally, the property enjoys private gardens to the front, side, and rear. The large rear garden has a sunny, southerly profile with a patio for alfresco dining and an expanse of lawn flanked by leafy greens. It includes a greenhouse and a drying area. A gated driveway and integral single garage (with access to the conservatory and living room) provide secure parking for multiple cars.
