18/3 Queensferry Street
Lying within the city’s New Town conservation area in the prestigious West End, this late Georgian flat occupies the top/third floor of a B-listed tenement designed by prominent architect James Gillespie Graham and incorporates three double bedrooms, lovingly-retained period features and wonderful views of the Edinburgh skyline.
Approached via a secure entry phone system and a shared stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with room for furniture items, handy built-in storage and a WC. Offering a welcoming introduction to the home and setting the tone for the interiors to follow, the hall is presented with neutral décor enhanced by practical laminate flooring and a soaring ceiling adorned with classic cornicing.
Leading off the hall is an impressive living room. Lit by twin sash-and-case windows framing enviable views of the street and Edinburgh Castle, this elegant reception room promises fantastic flexibility for endless furniture configurations, all arranged around an exquisite open fireplace. The living room enjoys warm décor accompanied by the same flooring as the hall and an attractive cornicing detail. Built-in storage also features.
Across the hall, a spacious dining kitchen awaits. Enjoying a sunny aspect with lovely views of St Mary’s Cathedral, the kitchen is fitted with a wide selection of modern wood-styled cabinets and coordinating worktops. An electric oven, a gas hob and an extractor fan are integrated; there is also an undercounter washing machine, a dishwasher and a fridge freezer (housed in a cupboard and all three included in the sale).
The flat incorporates three double bedrooms. Echoing the impressive proportions of the living room, the master bedroom offers ample space for freestanding bedroom furniture and enjoys attractive peach-toned décor framed by elegant cornicing. A large, southerly facing sash-and-case window floods the room with sunshine, whilst a generous built-in cupboard provides handy hidden storage. The remaining bedrooms are also attractively decorated and adorned with original cornicing. One is currently set up as a formal dining room, highlighting the versatility of the home; the other benefits from useful built-in storage and fitted shelving.
Completing the accommodation is an airy bathroom, comprising a bathtub with an overhead shower and a bi-folding glazed screen, a traditional-style pedestal basin, a hidden-cistern toilet and a wallmounted vanity cabinet. The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system.
Controlled on-street parking on Queensferry Street and in the vicinity falls under Zone 1.
