11/5 Rothesay Terrace, Edinburgh, EH3 7RY
Yielding magnificent views across the charming Dean Village and its leafy waterside surroundings, the Victorian two bedroom, two bathroom drawing apartment boasts one of Edinburgh’s most exclusive city centre addresses. Set along an elegant Victorian terrace with access to Rothesay Terrace Gardens ( annual fee payable ), the property has the added flexibility of a valuable allocated parking space which is located to the rear of the building.
From this prestigious West End location, many of the capital’s outstanding shopping, cultural and entertainment amenities can be easily reached by foot, whilst Haymarket train station, with its national rail links, is just 10-minutes’ walk away. Forming part of a classical B-listed townhouse, the apartment retains all its period grandeur and airy ambience, characterised by generously proportioned rooms, soaring high ceilings and vast sash-and-case windows. Decorative authentic features, some of beautiful intricacy, have also been well-preserved throughout.
Approached via a secure communal entrance and impressive sweeping stairwell to the first floor, the apartment opens into a hall with useful built-in storage. Here, the opulence of the property is immediately apparent with a suitably rich colour palette coupled with plasterwork and cornicing details. Positioned to the left of the hall is the spectacular bayfronted drawing room flooded in swathes of natural light courtesy of southerly-facing double windows with pleasant views of the neighbouring communal gardens.
Representing a tremendous, versatile space for comfortable furniture and seated dining, this majestic area is further enriched by the delicate features of ceiling cornicing and a fireplace inset with an enchanting tiled surround and coal-effect fire. Along the hall an internal kitchen is fitted in an attractive traditional style with panel-effect cabinetry, in a tasteful shade of cream, paired with timber-effect worktops and pastel aquatoned tiling. A neatly-integrated fridge freezer, a dishwasher, an oven and a gas hob, with a hood fronted by a handsome arched feature, accompanies a freestanding washing machine, negotiable in the sale. Located to the rear of the property with breath-taking city views are two large double bedrooms, including a master suite; well-presented and ornamented with pared-back cornicing. The master bedroom accommodates a fitted wardrobe and an en-suite shower room lit by double windows and replete with a classic WC-suite and a shower enclosure. Finally, a similarly-fashioned family bathroom comprises a WC-suite and a bathtub with a shower attachment. Externally, located to the front of the property and providing an idyllic, southerly-facing space for outdoor recreation is a secure, immaculately-maintained residents’ garden. There is an annual cost of £40 per year for the upkeep of the garden. Controlled on-street parking within the area falls under Zone 1. The property also benefits from a gas central heating system.
