199/2 Newhaven Road
Enjoying an exclusive suburban address with views towards Edinburgh’s iconic Arthur’s Seat, this beautifully-presented two-bedroom upper villa lies in ever-desirable Trinity; just minutes’ walk from Newhaven’s scenic harbour area, home to excellent shopping amenities and highend eateries. Set within a handsome period townhouse, the villa’s generously-sized rooms are enhanced by sophisticated contemporary interiors and characterful features, whilst private gardens and access to unrestricted on-street parking further supplement this highly-appealing city home. The front door swings open into a ground floor vestibule where a sweeping, recently carpeted staircase leads to the first floor and a galleried central reception hall. Owing to its feature cupola and fresh décor, with a Zoffany designer colour palette, this wonderfully light and spacious entrance area promises an inspiring introduction to the home’s luxury interiors. The space also enjoys the practical features of high-specification oak-style flooring and a useful store cupboard.
Benefiting from an equally airy ambience, with a cohesive decorative finish, is the impressive reception area. Here, elegant charm abounds with a soaring ceiling adorned with exquisite cornicing, and an imposing period-inspired fireplace with an open fire, flanked by arched recesses offering display shelving and hidden storage. In addition to ample space for comfortable seating and other furniture items, this magnificent room is further extended by a shuttered bay window – providing a delightful alcove for seated dining.
Next door, the eloquent interiors continue, acting as a subtle backdrop to a contemporary fitted kitchen. This brightly lit space comes well-appointed with an excellent array of stylish wood-styled cabinets paired with spacious worktops, ambient integrated downlighting and chic mosaic-style tiling. Neatly integrated goods
comprise a fridge freezer, an oven and a gas hob (with a feature chimney-style hood), whilst an undercounter washing machine is also included.
Quietly set to the rear of the property, with a sunny southerly-facing aspect, are two generous double bedrooms; flawlessly presented with crisp neutral décor and a classic cornicing detail. The largest bedroom features sumptuous newly-fitted carpeting and an attractive recess with display shelving and cupboard storage, whilst the second bedroom is laid with rich timber-style flooring. Finally, completing this remarkable period home, is a bathroom lit by a large deep-set window and warmly finished in yellow and natural wood tones.
The bathroom comes replete with a WC, an inset basin, vanity storage and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a contemporary glass screen. Gas central heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm and economically-run home. Excellent storage is provided by a very large attic, accessed via a Ramsay-ladder. Outside, the villa is complemented by private gardens to the front and side of the property. The front garden is neatly laid to lawn, whilst the lengthy side garden is terraced for easy maintenance and enjoys a favourably sunny aspect, plentiful space for outdoor seating and a useful shed. On-street parking in the area is conveniently unrestricted.
