1 Upper Gilmore Place
Seldom available on the market, 1 Upper Gilmore Place offers a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial main-door flat in sought after Bruntsfield. Set on the ground and lower ground floors of a classic Victorian tenement, the property currently comprises five bedrooms, two kitchens, two reception rooms and two bathrooms, and promises tremendous scope for development.
Extensive refurbishment is now required to realise the flat’s full potential as a family home or a buy-to-let investment. The property falls within the Marchmont, Meadows and Bruntsfield conservation area and has retained a fine selection of period features, including sash windows with traditional shutters, decorative cornices and fireplaces. Residents’ permit parking is available on Upper Gilmore Place, and the flat benefits from direct access to a southeast-facing, shared garden to the rear.
Behind the traditional front door is a practical vestibule, which flows into the simply staggering hall, whose opulent proportions and original features illustrate the calibre of the accommodation to follow. This sense of space and grandeur continues into the vast living room, which boasts a spectacular bay window with sash window and panelled shutters, plus an exquisite marble fireplace. The ground floor accommodates two large double bedrooms and two well-proportioned single bedrooms. All three rear-facing bedrooms enjoy a southeasterly aspect overlooking the garden, while the front-facing bedroom boasts a charming feature fireplace.
Also on this level are a three-piece bathroom and one of two kitchens. This smaller, secondary kitchen is furnished with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus an integrated gas hob, electric oven/grill and extractor hood.
Downstairs, the lower ground floor hall accommodates the primary kitchen, which is equipped with fitted cabinetry, plus an integrated gas hob, extractor hood and electric oven/grill. The adjoining dining room offers flexible scope for various configurations and enjoys a leafy garden outlook. The spacious master bedroom adjacent incorporates en-suite facilities, which now require full upgrading. Completing the lower ground floor are two walk-in stores and a back door allowing direct access to the southeast-facing shared garden. The property benefits from gas central heating throughout.
The walled rear garden enjoys a favourable southeasterly aspect and features a large drying green and a selection of mature shrubs and trees. Parking on Upper Gilmore Place is reserved for Zone 8 permit holders only; further pay-and-display parking is available in the vicinity.
