The property is a very-well upgraded top floor flat in a fine Victorian stone building quietly situated off Bruntsfield Place. Of particular note is the extensive shared rear garden with paved seating area featuring a table and chairs.
This ideal home is freshly decorated in neutral tones to complement the original sanded pine floors, with hardwood laminate flooring in the bedroom. The hall has a useful storage cupboard with hanging rail and a wall mounted cupboard with the electric meter. The bright sitting room benefits from maximum natural light via a triple bay window. The original styled fireplace has a lovely marble hearth and a coal effect gas fire, complemented by fine cornice detailing. A shelved wall recess affords further storage space.
The fitted kitchen/dining room benefits from additional space for a sofa. A good range of contemporary fitted units incorporates a five ring stainless steel gas hob, split level Neff stainless steel twin electric ovens with grill and Whirlpool plumbed-in automatic washing machine. An additional storage cupboard houses the Worcester ‘combi’ gas central heating boiler and programmer. The bedroom is fitted with a space-saving raised double bed accessed via a shelved and stepped storage unit. If the new purchaser prefers, this can be removed, the walls made good and redecorated by the Date of Entry.
A stylish contemporary shower/w.c. features wall and floor tiling, two large mirrors, downlighting and a ‘power’ shower with glazed doors and screen. The gas central heating combined with full double glazed windows ensures affordable, year-round comfort.
Situated about one mile south-west of the city centre, Bruntsfield is a sophisticated and sought-after residential suburb, offering an excellent quality of life. There is a very wide choice of local and speciality shopping complemented by a nearby Tesco Local with Waitrose Supermarket and Marks and Spencer Food at nearby Morningside. Within easy reach are the Meadows/Bruntsfield Links, many acres of mature parkland with a 9-hole ‘Pitch and Putt’ course. The Dominion Cinema, Churchill Theatre, Cameo and Odeon Cinemas, Usher Hall and the King’s Theatre are all within easy reach. There are a large range of bars, bistros and restaurants (some Michelin starred) in the vicinity, including the famous “Canny Man`s”.
Local authority schools are highly-regarded Bruntsfield Primary which feeds to the new Boroughmuir High School. Napier University’s Merchiston Campus is within 500 meters with the Craiglockhart Campus easily accessible by bus as are Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University’s Old Quad and George Square Campuses. A short drive south takes you to Edinburgh City By-pass, thence the Airport and Central Scottish Motorway Network.
