Full description

Tenure: Freehold



Forming part of the converted B-Listed Dalry House, built in 1661 and now the area’s oldest surviving building, this two-bedroom second-floor flat enjoys a significantly historic address. Lying within walking distance of the city centre and Haymarket’s superb transport links, the flat offers an ideal purchase for professionals or those seeking a unique rental or holiday let investment. Behind the building’s enchanting exterior, adorned with a myriad of stone mullion windows, the flat is finished to an excellent standard throughout; enjoying fashionable open-plan living and pleasant views of the surrounding area. Brimming with style and charm, the immaculate interiors boast a sophisticated contemporary palette enhanced by a favourable southerly-facing aspect, attractive hardwood flooring and sash-and-case windows. Benefiting from a secure entry system, the flat is reached via an impressive and well-maintained communal area, incorporating a bright vestibule, laid with period geometric floor tiling, and an airy stairway featuring a sweeping decoratively-detailed bannister. Located on the top floor, the flat opens into a spacious and welcoming hallway providing extensive storage. Occupying a generous mansard-style roof space and lit by large double-aspect windows, the well-proportioned reception area combines a sunny south-facing space for lounge and dining furniture and an adjacent kitchen area. The ultra-chic kitchen comprises a bank of glossy contemporary cabinets, framed by a granite effect workspace and splashback and incorporates integrated appliances. In the hallway, a utility cupboard is plumbed and can provide space for a washing machine. Overlooking the shared front garden and benefiting from a southwest-facing aspect, the generous master bedroom enjoys the luxury of double fitted wardrobes and a spacious en-suite shower room. Built into the building’s distinctive octagonal stair tower and featuring a quaint floor level window, the characterful en-suite shower room features a classically styled WC suite, a shower enclosure and a towel radiator. Located to the front of the property and benefiting from the morning sun is a further double bedroom with a deep fitted wardrobe. Finally, a tastefully-tiled bathroom comprises a WC, a pedestal sink and a shower-over-bath. The flat also benefits from a gas central heating system, sash and casement single glazing and access to a south-facing communal garden.

The area offers excellent leisure and recreational facilities nearby, including the Dalry Swim Centre, the Union Canal walkway and cycle path at Edinburgh Quay, and the Fountain Park Leisure Complex at Fountainbridge with its many bars, restaurants, multi-screen cinema, Virgin Active health club and bowling alley.
