Full description

This immaculate top floor flat forms part of Cornerstone House, a Georgian town house in a prime West End address. The property has undergone an extensive and meticulous refurbishment and is offset by excellent period proportions. EPC Rating: C.

Approached via a newly decorated and well-maintained stair, the flat opens into a welcoming, large vestibule. One is immediately struck by the beautiful decorating and high quality finish. The sense of scale becomes very apparent once inside the open plan living space. This impressive room is 46ft long and incorporates a formal living space, dining area and kitchen. The stunning, German kitchen has been designed by the award winning Colin Wong. Features include Silestone work surfaces, integrated appliances, tiled flooring and a breakfast bar providing plenty of space to dine and entertain.
There are four large windows running the length of the room allowing for plenty of natural light to flood the space. Engineered hardwood, oak floors feature within the living spaces, in addition to the hallway, creating a warm and sophisticated look.
There are three double bedrooms in total, all quietly set to the rear of the building. The large master bedroom offers a lovely open aspect, a built in store cupboard and plenty of space for an array of wardrobes. The stylish and contemporary shower room, also designed by Colin Wong is adjacent to the master bedroom, and has been finished with high quality fittings. Bedroom two and three share an equal look and feel, with all three bedrooms being finished with luxury Arctic Grey carpets. Completing the accommodation is the striking family bathroom, featuring a free standing bath. A deep cupboard provides plumbing for a washing machine.

Located in the very heart of Edinburgh's West End, Cornerstone House is situated on the corner of Melville Street, in a wonderful, central position, with the historic beauty of the Capital right on the doorstep. The property is situated close to many of the city's financial institutions and is within walking distance of George Street, Princes Street and Charlotte Square, which form the commercial heart of the city. The West End is host to a plethora of independent shops, eateries, coffee houses and boutiques. Stockbridge village is also within walking distance. Recreational facilities include nearby gyms, well known restaurants, The Usher Hall, Murrayfield Rugby Stadium and the Modern and Dean Art Galleries. Pleasant walks can be enjoyed along the nearby Water of Leith walkway and through the Royal Botanic Gardens. Both train stations are within easy walking distance and the tram network provides an efficient service to Edinburgh Airport from Atholl Crescent.
