Details

Fully renovated for a new tenancy, this spacious, two/three-bedroom, two WC, main door Georgian flat is situated in Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town. UNFURNISHED to allow maximum tenant flexibility on the use of rooms, it has a private enclosed garden and a secure driveway. Available now!

This property has been completely renovated. The property is UNFURNISHED, but virtually staged photos have been provided to give examples of how to fill the ample space on offer.

One of the many highlights of this renovated Georgian property is its brand-new kitchen. This room, with its tall ceiling and large window overlooking the garden, is the perfect heart of this home. With its island cooking unit layout, boldly coloured unit facings, feature window seat and sleek wooden worktop; it certainly looks the part. In addition to its excellent finish, this kitchen is also a practical space for cooking and entertaining. It boasts various high-end appliances including a full-size dishwasher, a twin-door oven, and a large integrated fridge-freezer. There is ample countertop space, plenty of cupboards and drawers for storage, and the island unit makes a great spot for breakfasts and casual dining.

For more formal dining, the dining area is located immediately off the kitchen. This space continues the use of the original sanded wood flooring present in the kitchen and throughout much of the property. With ample space for a large dining table and plenty of light (from both a large, south-facing window and a skylight), this bright room is perfect for meals with family and friends. There is also additional shelving and cupboards here for crockery. With direct access to the garden, it would be easy for summer parties and barbeques to flow from one area to another.

The enclosed, private garden is a real asset to have in such a central location. At around 140 square metres, space is not at a premium here. There is plenty of room for both the luxuries (such as the artificial lawn area, the patio area and the flower bed) and the essentials (such as the driveway and bin storage).

Turning back to the inside of this stunning property, the main door enters onto a vestibule that still has the original tiling. This then leads onto a large, airy hall that connects the kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom, living room and utility.

The living room in this property is the definition of New Town grandeur. The sage green walls and unique lampshade add to the already impressive cornicing on display. As the property is unfurnished, this room could alternatively be used as a large bedroom.

The property's main bedroom suite is one of the property's most unique features, having been born out of the recent renovations. This impressive space includes the main bedroom, a large, fitted wardrobe and an ensuite shower room.

The main bathroom perfectly blends style with substance. It has a large bath as well as a separate shower area. Like the ensuite shower room, it makes use of quality tiling, a heated towel rail and high-end finishes to give an added touch of luxury.

The second bedroom has masses of floor space and (like the bedroom suite) has an original fireplace as a stunning focal point to the room.

The property also has a good-sized utility room. That houses the washing machine, a pulley dryer and shelving for laundry.

The heating system was fully upgraded as part of the renovation works. A new gas-fired boiler was installed and new radiators (that complement the property’s period aesthetic) were installed throughout.

Located within Edinburgh's world-famous New Town, it’s easy to forget that this property is in the heart of the city. Tucked away at the bottom of Scotland Street, it is surrounded by greenery and overlooks King George V Park.

The New Town is in the centre of the city and is the home of some of Edinburgh's top retail and leisure attractions. Within a 5-minute walk of the property, there is Cannonmills (with its cosy pubs, a large Tesco and a M&S), within an additional 5 minute walk is Broughton Street (with its trendy bars, pharmacy and independent restaurants) and just another 5-muntes further to Stockbridge (with its coffeeshops, bakeries and boutiques). The property is also under a 20-minute walk from the St James Quarter, George Street and Princes Street, which have some of the best retail and leisure in opportunities in the city. For those who want to escape the city for an hour or two, some of the best green areas in the city are nearby. King George V Park (with its trees and open spaces) is directly across the road, while The Royal Botanic Garden (with its impressive flora and regular outdoor events) and The Water of Leith (with its scenic riverside walkway) are only 10 minutes away on foot.

For the motorist, Scotland Street is ideal. It has a private driveway and is only a short drive from the A1 (which has quick links out to the city bypass and motorway network). For those commuting by bike or foot, there is a link to the North Edinburgh Cycle Network at King George V Park, joining up Stockbridge, the New Town and Leith with traffic-free routes. Meanwhile, trams to the airport or Leith can be taken from Picardy Place - only 12 minutes' walk away - and buses to the rest of the city can be boarded at Bellevue - under 5 minutes’ walk away.
In short, this is a stunning property in the heart of the city that must be seen to be fully appreciated.
