Characterized by outstanding proportions and a wealth of flexible accommodation, this traditional third floor tenement flat represents an exciting opportunity to acquire a period home with fabulous views. The flat has retained a selection of charming original features, including ornate cornice work and original floorboards. Accessed via a secure entry-phone system and a well-maintained communal stair, welcoming you into the top floor flat is an impressive entrance hall, whose high ceilings, exposed floorboards and classic panel doors instantly set the tone for the accommodation to follow. The vast sitting room boasts a magnificent bay window framed by traditional painted paneling, which offers views over the Firth of Forth to Fife, and has a feature fireplace. The dining kitchen to the rear boasts glorious views of Arthurs Seat and Salisbury Crags with the Pentland hills in the distance and has fitted cabinets, offering generous storage and workspace, with space for a central dining table next to another feature fireplace. Both double bedrooms to the front and rear enjoy excellent proportions and superb natural light, and concealed behind a reeded glass door is the bright and airy three-piece bathroom. The versatile box bedroom (an ideal home office or study) benefits from a fitted platform bed and natural light courtesy of an internal window into the dining kitchen, and is supplemented with a useful hall cupboard. We have been advised by the owner that there is potential to extend into the attic – deemed a “permitted development” by Edinburgh City Council.
