12/4 Pilrig Street
Lying just off Leith’s bustling thoroughfare, lined with an eclectic array of bars, eateries and shops, this beautifully-styled three-bedroom flat promises a highly sought-after central location – an ideal proposition for professionals, those with families or rental investors. Set on the second floor of a classic Victorian tenement, the flat’s generous accommodation enjoys sympathetic modernisation and immaculate tastefully-toned interiors, whilst retaining all of its desirable period character.
Reached via a secure communal stairwell, the front door opens into a welcoming hall, where original ceiling cornicing and rich hardwood flooring create a fantastic introduction to this exquisite period home. This spacious entrance area includes a charming built-in storage system with seating and a WC cloakroom; attractively finished with classic geometric floor tiling and wall panelling. Located to the front of the property is the generous living room capturing views of the neighbouring Pilrig St Paul’s Church via an impressive bay window inset with a delightful seating/storage area. The abundant charm within this airy, high-ceilinged room continues with stripped flooring, delicately-detailed cornicing and a rose, as well as a handsome feature fireplace.
Next door, the expansive southerly-facing kitchen represents a bright, congenial space for relaxed social gatherings with the inclusion of a generous central dining area. Exceptionally well-appointed, with an enduring, high-quality finish, the kitchen is fitted with a wealth of sage-green cabinets complemented by integrated downlighting, colour-matched metro wall tiles, natural timber worktops and an inset Belfast sink. Bringing further character to this inspiring space are ceiling cornicing and a period fire surround, whilst a full range of neatly integrated goods comprises a fridge freezer, a dishwasher, a washing machine, an eye-level double oven and an electric hob with a statement chimney-style hood. Perfectly decorated in crisp modern tones and retaining their antique wood flooring are two double bedrooms boasting enchanting feature fireplaces and a good-sized single bedroom adorned with a cornicing detail. This elegant decorative enhancement also features in the generous master bedroom, along with a traditional Edinburgh Press including cupboard storage. The second double bedroom is quietly positioned to the rear or the property and further supplemented by a favourably sunny aspect and built-in storage. Finally, with a chic metro-tiled finish, is the opulently-styled bathroom replete with a countertop basin set on vanity storage and a sumptuous claw-foot bathtub with a traditional shower tap and a rainfall overhead shower system.
The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system. Outside, this desirable period city home benefits from access to a southerly-facing communal rear garden, whilst on-street parking is conveniently unrestricted.
