Occupying an enviable location in popular Polwarth, within a sought-after school catchment area, this magnificent three-bedroom main door flat forms part of an imposing traditional Victorian tenement. The generous and versatile accommodation is complemented by direct access to a charming rear garden.
In an elevated position, set quietly back from the street, a short rise of steps leads to the inviting front door, and flows, via a traditionally tiled vestibule, into the long central reception hall. Soaring ceilings with delicate cornicing, fresh, neutral décor and solid oak floors promise the well-preserved period features and inviting accommodation to follow. There are two cupboards, and ample room for hall furniture.
Situated to the front of the flat is the impressive living/dining room. Arranged around a magnificent slate fireplace, this sizable room offers space for an array of comfortable living and dining furniture, ideal for relaxing and entertaining. The eye is drawn to the deep bay at the front, where three large windows (with working shutters) flood the room with natural light, giving rise to an airy ambience. Exceptionally detailed cornicework is complemented by a solid oak floor and soft toned décor.
Flowing from the hall to the rear of the flat, the contemporary dining kitchen has been thoughtfully designed to maximise the space and enhance the traditional layout. A glazed door creates floor to ceiling natural light and provides a direct link to the rear garden. The room boasts a range of sleek, white fitted floor and wall mounted units, with contrasting wood worktops and grey metro tiling, incorporating an induction hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer and space for a washing machine. Extensive storage is complemented by a deep walk in larder. There is a space for a dining table, with built in seating, ideal for everyday family meals or casual dining.
The city home boasts three double bedrooms, two of which enjoy the leafy garden outlook arising from the rear of the flat. The generously proportioned master bedroom has ample space for freestanding furniture, enhanced by a deep cupboard. Fresh toned walls, window shutters and a white-painted wood floor create a serene atmosphere. Bedroom two, another spacious double, is cosily carpeted, and boasts intricate cornicing and a charming period fireplace. Bedroom three, also with warming coir carpets, has a bright front facing outlook, with a deep window framed by privacy enhancing shutters.
The spacious accommodation includes a versatile box room which, with access from the hall or living room, could be used for occasional guests or as a quiet study. Finally, the large three-piece family bathroom is fitted with a bath with shower-over, and WC-suite, enveloped in warm toned metro tiling. Gas central heating throughout the flat ensures year-round warmth and comfort.
To the rear of the building, the enclosed communal garden (shared with one other flat), has a generous lawn, offering a tranquil outdoor haven in the heart of the city.
The property lies in the school catchment for the popular Bruntsfield Primary School and Boroughmuir High School. It is perfectly positioned for the independent amenities of bustling Bruntsfield, and to the leafy walks of the nearby Union Canal. Residents parking (Zone S3) is available in the surrounding area.
