24 (1GF) Hillside Crescent
Forming part of Edinburgh’s everdesirable Hillside, this three-bedroom Victorian flat is set over two floors of a handsome B-Listed tenement, recently externally renovated with a World Heritage Grant.
Lying enviably close to the heart of the capital, this generous period home offers a perfect city abode for families, or, with the option to alter the accommodation to a four-bedroom residence, a fantastic HMO rental opportunity for investors. Radiating a wonderfully airy, yet homely ambience, the internal accommodation incorporates high-ceilinged rooms perfectly balanced by the warm, inviting tones of subtle, neutral décor and rich hardwood flooring. Whilst preserving an array of elegant authentic features, including sash-andcase windows, the interiors are tastefully bought up to date with a complement of attractive contemporary finishes.
Accessed via a secure entrance and a communal foyer, the flat opens into a welcoming hall presenting an excellent first impression with its white walls framed by honey-coloured hardwood flooring. Incorporated into this entrance area is a useful deep store cupboard. Situated to the front of the property is a generous reception area retaining many
charming period features, including a decorative ceiling rose and cornicing, and a bay window set into a classic panelled surround.
This large window creates a delightful alcove for a bright, seated dining area, whilst the remaining floorspace can accommodate comfortable seating and further furniture pieces. Along the hall lies a well-appointed breakfasting kitchen fitted with a collection of crisp-white cabinets accompanied by spacious granite-effect worktops and a congenial breakfast bar. Fully-integrated, the room is equipped with a full range of goods and appliances, including a fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven, gas hob and cooker hood. Also located on this level and benefiting from a tranquil position overlooking the rear communal garden, is one of the property’s three generous double bedrooms; all of which accommodate built-in storage and enjoy the comfort of fitted carpeting.
On the lower level, a hall offers access to the remaining accommodation. Partitioned from the hall, thereby effectively creating a suite, the master bedroom, featuring a bay window with original shutters, adjoins a spacious shower room. Simply-styled, the shower room is replete with a WC, a wall-hung basin, a large shower enclosure and a towel radiator. Across the hall, the third double bedroom overlooks the rear garden, via a window with working shutters. Finally, a stylish bathroom, enhanced by a terracotta-toned mosaic detail, houses a WC-suite and a shower-over-bath.
Externally, the flat benefits from shared access to a substantial lawned garden, sheltered by mature trees and enclosed by characterful stone walling, whilst on-street controlled parking is available within the immediate vicinity (Zone N1). The property also benefits a from a gas central heating system.
