Here, a flourish of perfectly-retained period details catch the eye, from the southerly-facing, timber-panelled bay window, to the ornate ceiling rose and intricate cornice work, in addition to the neat picture rail, an Edinburgh Press, and a feature fireplace. Meanwhile, the pale décor and soft carpeting complement the rich woodwork, enhancing a tranquil living environment.
The rear-facing dining kitchen also provides a generous footprint, as well as a large recess to house a table and chairs for sociable dinner parties. It comes fitted with timber-fronted base cabinets and black granite-effect worktops, housing space for a full range of freestanding appliances. An open doorway leads to an adjacent utility area for laundry.
Located throughout the home are the two bedrooms: a good-size double with a southerly aspect and a versatile single for creative use. Both rooms are presented with soft carpeting and neutral décor for a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.
Finishing the home is a bright bathroom with a modern three-piece suite, overhead shower, and white tiling around the wet areas.
Located on the south side of the capital and approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, to suit every stage of life, and is equally popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan cafes and coffee shops, pubs, bars, and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This changes again during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The rest of the year, however, Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen’s Hall, and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets, and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. For sport and fitness enthusiasts, The Royal Commonwealth Pool boasts a first-class gym, three fitness studios and three pools, including Edinburgh’s only 50m pool. The wide-open spaces of Holyrood Park, Arthur’s Seat, and Salisbury Crags are also nearby. The property falls within the catchment area for highly-regarded primary and secondary schools, and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
