Truly exceptional properties don’t come onto the market every day and this stunning garden flat, discretely nestled in the heart of Edinburgh, certainly falls into that category.
Its traditional, Georgian structure belies a wonderful, contemporary interior immaculately presented, with stylish, generous rooms and beautiful fixtures & fittings that effortlessly combine with fine period features.
Flooded with natural light provided by a series of cupolas and windows, this remarkable four-bedroom, West End apartment is for sale at offers over £1.1m.
Complete with a fantastic, landscaped garden with a large-terraced area and two separate courtyards, the entire property has been lovingly upgraded by the current owners.
Located close to a wealth of amenities and with access to the large residents’ gardens that border Eglinton Crescent, this truly is an impressive property.
It benefits from a gated entrance and steps leading down to the front door, where there is a south east facing courtyard with three cellars. The front door opens onto the entrance vestibule, decorated with quirky Mulberry Game wallpaper, providing an insight of the charming décor that lies ahead.
The striking drawing room is sophisticated, yet warm and welcoming, with an impressive cupola surrounded with magnificent cornices, in addition to a fine marble mantelpiece with working fireplace. Partially glazed doors open directly onto the garden, bringing the outside in during good weather.
The kitchen is generally considered the heart of the home and this wonderful room certainly is this, with a high specification Pronorm kitchen with fully integrated appliances, and a large formal dining space and breakfast bar.
From here there is direct access to the rear garden. All four generous bedrooms are tastefully decorated and finished to a high standard.
Both the master bedroom (with direct access to an enclosed courtyard) and the second bedroom have beautiful modern fitted en-suite shower rooms and dressing rooms (fitted with shelving and hanging spaces). Bedroom three has a wonderful, curved window to the front of the property and original fireplace, whilst bedroom four (currently utilised as a tranquil workspace) benefits from great natural light and a storage area.
Located off the hall is a stylish family bathroom and an additional separate WC with airing cupboard. The utility room is well equipped with washing machine, tumble drier, a Belfast sink and large storage cupboards. The original stairs, which would have led to the rest of the house, provide a further storage area. There is also a large walk-in boot and coat cupboard with fitted hanging space and shelving.
A fully enclosed rear garden is a treat in the city centre and this superb garden has been thoroughly nurtured and enjoyed by the current owners. The considerable Italian porcelain tiled terrace allows for multiple seating arrangements. An elevated lawn is flanked by established borders, planted with a glorious, colourful combination of plants, bushes and shrubs to enjoy as the seasons pass. A patio area at the end of the garden is another delightful area to catch the sun from the morning onwards.
