Forming part of a handsome, B-Listed Georgian house, this ground-floor flat enjoys a quiet, leafy setting on prestigious Ferry Road, within the Victoria Park conservation area of exclusive Trinity. The three-bedroom home boasts classically-proportioned interiors, a wealth of retained period features, and wonderful living and entertaining space, and is accompanied by both private and shared, south-facing, mature gardens, and access to unrestricted on-street parking. Within easy reach of excellent local amenities, schools and transport links, and offering exciting scope for renovation and development, the desirable period property represents an outstanding city home.
Set back from Ferry Road behind gated, lawned front gardens, Taap Hall’s imposing front door gives access to a shared entrance foyer. The door to number 1 opens into a hallway (with storage) leading towards a south-facing living room which represents the very essence of this characterful property, with original timber floorboards, a period fireplace, traditional smooth cornicing, and an intricate ceiling rose. Classic sash-and-case glazing frames delightful garden views, with a door extending the impressively-proportioned reception area outdoors. Across the hall, a spacious dining kitchen features a traditional clothes pulley and, along with built-in storage, provides a generous range of fitted cabinetry and workspace. A freestanding washing machine is neatly accommodated and space for further appliances is conveniently provided. Also located within the home are two double bedrooms, both elegantly proportioned, boasting traditional Edinburgh Presses, and enhanced by lofty ceilings with smooth cornicing details. A single bedroom, enjoying access from both the living room and the second double bedroom, represents a good-sized versatile space with a variety of options for use. Completing the accommodation, a family bathroom features a three-piece suite with a shower-over-bath. Gas central heating ensures year-round efficiency and warmth.
Along with access to a shared drying green, the flat enjoys two private garden areas within the sprawling, south-facing grounds. A delightful flower garden is accessed directly from the flat’s private rear door and, enjoying a secluded setting at the foot of the grounds, a tranquil lawned seating area is accompanied by a vegetable plot and two garden sheds. A private cellar (originally part of a stable block) provides excellent outdoor storage. Unrestricted on-street parking can be found outside the property and in surrounding streets.
Situated to the north of the city, the leafy and exclusive suburb of Trinity is a highly desirable residential area, characterised by a combination of period, traditional and modern architecture. Situated less than three miles from the centre of Edinburgh next to the Firth of Forth, the immediate area offers a broad selection of local amenities. These are supplemented by extensive shopping facilities at nearby Craigleith Retail Park, which hosts a range of high street retailers and supermarkets. Ocean Terminal in Leith also caters for shoppers, as well as cinema-goers and gym-goers.
