Set on the first floor of a handsome tenement building, in the popular residential district of Shandon, this recently renovated traditional flat enjoys a prime city location on the doorstep of scenic open parkland and the picturesque Union Canal, also enjoying excellent local amenities and first-class transport links to the city centre. The classically-proportioned period home boasts a wonderful fusion of original features and stylish contemporary upgrades, offering two double bedrooms (plus a box room) and a wealth of versatile reception space, plus a leafy shared garden and access to unrestricted on-street parking.
Approached via a secure entry system and a stairwell to the first floor, the front door opens into an airy, high-ceilinged entrance hall (with storage), enjoying an inviting combination of soft-toned decor and warm-hued stripped pine flooring. This classic, understated backdrop continues into the living room, which is fronted by a southwest-facing, wood-panelled bay window, and is further enhanced by additional period features, including elaborate cornicing, an original fireplace, and an open Edinburgh Press. This elegant reception area promises a generous, comfortable setting for everyday living, relaxing, and entertaining, with versatile floorspace for a seated dining area, if desired.
Further along the hall, you reach the home’s dining kitchen. Spacious and airy, and appointed in a stylish contemporary fashion, the kitchen features a range of light-grey cabinetry, framed by granite-inspired worktops and on-trend subway tiling, coming integrated with a double oven, a gas hob and a statement extractor hood. An alcove, set with ambient overhead lighting, promises a charming, intimate dining space, whilst a cupboard offers excellent pantry storage, in addition to an adjoining utility room that provides a discreet laundry area, with a washing machine and a dryer.
Two well-proportioned double bedrooms are ornamented by traditional smooth cornicing, and enhanced by subtle decor and plush carpeting. Set to the front, the main bedroom features an original fireplace, whilst the remaining bedroom is supplemented by fitted, mirrored storage and enjoys tranquil garden views. A box room provides a good-sized, versatile space, with fabulous options for creative use. Completing this impressive period home is a bright three-piece bathroom, with wall-mounted vanity storage and a traditionally-styled suite, comprising a WC, a pedestal washbasin, and a bathtub with an overhead shower and vintage, tiled surround. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, the flat is accompanied by a leafy, shared rear garden with a handy drying area, whilst on-street parking in the vicinity is conveniently unrestricted.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, the washing machine, and the dryer.
