2 bedroom flat for sale

Property Details

An excellent opportunity has arisen to acquire this highly desirable second-floor flat, ideal buy-to-let opportunity or city centre residence, while being well located within the prestigious Old Town area of Edinburgh. Viewing of this property is highly recommended. It is a historic property, built in 1670 and still retaining large parts of the original building. The property is now Grade B listed, a recipient of grant funding in the case of necessary restoration work. The building is striking and unique to this stretch of the Canongate, and is regularly featured on walking tours. In the 1960s, the building was renovated by renowned Royal Mile restoration architect, Robert Hurd, as a plaque on the front describes. He had previously restored 17C Gladstone's Land, now the National Trust for Scotland's Royal Mile property, which is a recent influence on the interior design of the property. The communal stairway is interestingly, turreted, as can be seen from the courtyard. Internally this accommodation is in immaculate decorative order, while briefly consisting of an entrance hallway with a utility cupboard as well as a cloak cupboard, a bright and spacious sitting room which has a built-in storage cupboard and boasts a feature log burning stove and a modern, high gloss kitchen which benefits from an integrated ceramic induction 3 hob, extractor hood, oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, larder, hot tap, waste disposal unit, a kickboard heater and granite workshops with a breakfast bar, including two pop-up power sockets. There are two spacious double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dining room, and has double built-in wardrobes and a further log burning stove. The other also has a built-in wardrobe and a pop-up desk. Both log burning stoves are a top of the range design for smoke-free city areas, and therefore legal to use as much as you choose. The three-piece, partially tiled bathroom has an over-head shower and a chrome heated towel rail. This property also benefits from re-cladding and roof refurbishment which was carried out in 2017 in conjunction with Edinburgh World Heritage. Historic lime paints were carefully chosen. There is a secure door entry system, gas central heating and single glazed sash &case windows. Gladstone's Court, to the rear of the building belongs, in solum, to the owners of the property. Edinburgh Council maintain it, and parking permits are available through them for a small annual fee. It is reported to be in receipt of designated grant funding for upgrading. There is a private locked storage area for the property, located on the outside of the building.
