Enjoying an exclusive setting on Gladstone Terrace and within the desirable Marchmont, Meadows and Bruntsfield conservation area, this two-bedroom ground-floor tenement flat has been upgraded to an impeccable standard throughout, yet is still brimming with period charm and character.

The ground-floor property further benefits from an enclosed, west-facing private garden to the front and a shared garden/drying green to the rear.
The stone-built tenement is accessed via a secure shared entrance and stairwell, and welcoming you into the ground-floor flat is an impressive hall. Rich walnut-effect flooring, neutral décor and grand proportions set an elegant tone for the accommodation to follow. This ambience continues into the vast living room, whose twin west-facing windows flood the space with evening light and yield leafy views of the private garden. The fireplace at the heart of the room features exposed stone and a slate hearth for a simple, rustic aesthetic and is equipped with a Stovax log burner for added warmth and comfort through the winter months.

High-gloss handleless cabinetry topped with solid surface worktops offers outstanding hidden storage and workspace, and houses a selection of integrated appliances. These include a five-burner gas hob, a canopy hood, an electric oven/grill, a microwave, a fridge and a dishwasher. This leaves scope for a neat breakfast table.
Both double bedrooms enjoy a tranquil, east-facing outlook to the rear and are equipped with substantial fitted wardrobes. The larger bedroom also opens onto a decked patio leading down to the shared rear garden/drying green.
Completing the accommodation is the immaculate four-piece bathroom, which features a double walk-in shower and a large bathtub.
Gas central heating and double-glazed windows guarantee optimum home comfort and efficiency, all year round.

Controlled parking (Zone 7) is available on Gladstone Terrace and in the vicinity.
