This three-bedroom main-door double upper flat enjoys an excellent location in Stockbridge, bordering the banks of the scenic Water of Leith, close to excellent local amenities, and within strolling distance of the city centre.
Approached via an external staircase shared with one other property, the flat’s private front door opens into a tiled entrance vestibule, which leads into a reception hall, hinting at the characterful interiors to follow. To the left of the hall, a living room exudes period charm with a lofty ceiling, framed by elaborate cornicing and a ceiling rose, a traditional fireplace, flanked by an open Edinburgh Press, and a tall sash-and-case window, set with a delightful window seat. The classically-proportioned reception room promises a relaxing, elegant setting for everyday living and conveniently adjoins a dining kitchen. Perfect for family meals and entertaining, the kitchen offers generous space for a dining table and chairs, as well as a convivial breakfast bar - perfect for socialising while cooking. Ample cabinet storage and workspace is provided, and the design neatly accommodates an integrated oven, a ceramic hob, and an extractor hood, along with a freestanding fridge, a dishwasher, and a washing machine. A handy utility recess provides additional pantry storage and discreetly houses a freezer. Accessed from the kitchen, a shower room (with storage) features a large, tiled shower enclosure, a WC, and a basin set into storage with a rustic tiled surround, all set against a backdrop of crisp white decor.
The home’s three bedrooms are peacefully located on the upper floor. The well-proportioned main bedroom enjoys the luxury of built-in storage, whilst a second double bedroom also enjoys generous dimensions, and the remaining bedroom, a good-sized single, is currently arranged as a home office, demonstrating great versatility and options for use. Gas central heating is found throughout and the upper floor’s Velux windows are double-glazed.
Externally, a private, front courtyard, bordered by colourful planting, shrubs, and trees, provides a sheltered, tranquil seating area, whilst controlled parking is available in the area with a residents’ permit (Zone N2).
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, the fridge, dishwasher, washing machine, and freezer. Some items of furniture may be available by separate negotiation.
