Situated in the New Town conservation area in Hillside, just a brisk walk from Waverley train station, this traditional Georgian garden flat has a lot of character, enjoying stylish original stonework and exposed ceiling beams. The property awaits new owners to add the finishing touches to transform it into a dream contemporary home in a lucrative city centre location.
With an attractive approach via a cobble-stone street, the home's front door sits behind the private garden down a small flight of stone steps. It opens into a spacious reception hall, which impresses from the outset with bare stone walls and vertical chrome radiators. It offers room for freestanding furniture and a wealth of possibilities for present-day styling. On the right is the living room. This wonderful space is well-proportioned for comfortable lounge furniture and brightly lit by a traditional 12-pane sash window, which floods the room in warm sunlight. It has easy potential to become an outstanding reception area for modern city lifestyles.
Across the hall, the dining kitchen enjoys a sophisticated design centred on a floating island with a neat breakfast peninsula for quick meals. It enjoys suave Shaker-inspired cabinetry and chunky timber-toned worktops, providing complementary shelving and ample room for a small dining table for sit-down meals. It incorporates a ceramic hob, an electric oven, and space for a fridge-freezer and washing machine. French doors bathe the room in natural light, opening onto the front garden for a delightful indoor/outdoor flow of accommodation.
At the rear of the home are two spacious double bedrooms. The master bedroom, with the more generous proportions, affords a wealth of bedside furnishings, as well as two feature windows for a light and airy ambience. It also boasts a stylish sliding mirrored door, which reveals a luxury en-suite bathroom with deluxe fixtures and fittings, including a double-ended bathtub, WC, twin washbasins with a countertop, and two considerable vanity mirrors. The second double bedroom enjoys spacious dimensions and a charming feature window. In addition, there is a versatile study area to suit the new owner's needs. Finally, a stylish family shower room matches the quality of the en-suite with an appealing rustic design, enhanced by bare stone walls and industrial-style lighting. It incorporates a four-piece suite, including a suave wet area with mosaic floor tiling and a drenching rainfall shower. A brand new gas central heating system (with vertical radiators) ensures year-round warmth.
Externally, the flat sits behind a private landscaped garden set on two levels. It offers real potential as an outdoor haven for alfresco dining and leads to a private parking area.
