100/2 Willowbrae Road
Set on the lower two floors of a grand C-Listed Victorian villa, close to Holyrood Park and Edinburgh’s iconic Arthur’s Seat, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex flat enjoys an enviable address; also well-connected to the city centre and Portobello’s much-loved beachfront, both less than two miles away. Lit by vast sash-and-case windows, the southerly-facing accommodation radiates a wonderfully light and airy feel, and is attractively presented with a tasteful modern finish, whilst spectacular original features also remain. A fabulous open-plan living area, as well as access to private parking and landscaped communal gardens further enhance this remarkable period home.
Benefiting from secure entry and accessed at ground-floor level, the flat is reached via a welcoming communal vestibule. Providing a breath-taking first impression, the front door opens directly into the impressive open-plan kitchen and living/dining area; occupying the entire ground-floor and boasting a high ceiling festooned with magnificent intricate plasterwork. Bathed in sunny natural light courtesy of a dual-aspect outlook, this wonderfully sociable area offers endless scope for furniture configurations and includes a southerly-facing box window – a delightful sunny spot, ideal for seated dining.
Crisp white walls and honey-coloured wood flooring create an understated backdrop to a chic decorative feature wall, whilst the fitted kitchen area enjoys a sympathetic wood and granite-effect finish. Here, a good array of stylish cabinets is accompanied by atmospheric built-in lighting, spacious worktops (with a breakfasting peninsula), an integrated dishwasher, a fridge freezer, a washing machine, an oven and a gas hob. Also located on the ground floor is useful under-stairs storage and a handy WC. A staircase from the living area leads up to the first floor, where a landing (with storage) affords access to two carpeted double bedrooms; both supplemented by en-suite wash rooms, incorporated wardrobe storage and a favourable southwest-facing aspect. Further heightened by windows to two sides, the exceptionally generous master bedroom is adjoined by a walk-in wardrobe and a large, chicly-tiled bathroom replete with a WC-suite, vanity storage and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed bi-folding screen. Bedroom two is complemented by a contemporary en-suite shower room.
The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system. Externally, this desirable residential conversion is bordered by well-kept lawned communal gardens and offers its residents convenient private parking.
