37B Coates Gardens
Set along one of the West End’s grand cobbled streets, this outstanding two-bedroom Victorian garden flat boasts one of the capital’s most prestigious city centre addresses. As part of Edinburgh’s historic centre, this sought-after location allows for easy access to everything the city has to offer and is located just a few minutes’ walk from Haymarket’s bustling transport hub.
Occupying the lower floor of a B-Listed period property and retaining its large sash-and-case windows, the flat promises a wonderfully light and spacious home with its own sunny landscaped garden. The internal accommodation’s welcoming airy ambience has been thoughtfully created by tasteful, delicatelytoned décor, harmonised by honey-coloured hardwood flooring through much of the property.
Approached via stone steps and a paved private garden, set behind handsome gated railings and housing a practical dry cellar, the classically-styled front door opens into an inviting hall. Superbly well-lit by integrated ceiling lighting and faultlessly presented in warm, neutral tones, the hall extends almost the full depth of the property and accommodates excellent storage and a home office space. Stairs from an additional entrance at ground-floor level (accessed via a secure entry system and communal vestibule) also lead into the far end of the hall.
Located to the rear of the property and therefore enjoying the benefit of its southerly-facing aspect is a generous living room and a neighbouring kitchen. Mirroring the understated décor and stylish lighting of the entrance hall, the living room is focused around a charming gas-fired stove nestled into a distinctive surround featuring characterful mottled slate-tiling.
The fireplace is flanked by two recessed areas perfect for display shelving units. Accessed from the living room is a contemporary fitted kitchen arranged around a seated dining area. Highlighted by soft grey hues, the kitchen boasts a high-quality finish with rich timber cabinets complemented by solid corian worktops and splashback panelling. A full accompaniment of goods and appliances include a freestanding dishwasher and an integrated tall fridge freezer, a washer/dryer, an oven and a gas hob, paired with a striking feature cooker hood. To the rear of the kitchen lies a useful pantry cupboard and external access to the garden. With an open flow from the living room to the kitchen, leading into the garden, the flat presents an ideal layout for social gatherings with family and friends.
The property’s two flawless, lightlytoned double bedrooms include a master suite of impressive proportions. Ornamented with elegant cornicing, the bedroom can accommodate a wealth of furniture including an assortment of large furniture pieces, whilst also incorporating an attractive fitted wardrobe. Adding to this luxurious arrangement is a large en-suite bathroom accentuated by stylish tiling. The bathroom is replete with a modern WC, a basin set into a timber vanity unit, a bathtub and a spacious shower enclosure. Further features include a towel radiator and an exceptionally large fitted mirror. Across the hall from the master suite lies the second double bedroom enjoying ultra-stylish fitted storage. Completing the fabulous accommodation on offer is a good-sized shower room similar in style to the deluxe en-suite bathroom.
Externally, the high-standard of presentation continues with the beautifully-landscaped rear garden. Southeast-facing and perfectly designed for idyllic relaxation and alfresco entertaining, this enchanting space includes seating areas enlivened by architectural features and planting, as well as external lighting. Residents of Coates Gardens also have the appealing option to acquire access to nearby Magdala Crescent Gardens; secure private gardens accessible with payment of a yearly maintenance fee. Controlled on-street parking within the area falls under Zone 1. The property also benefits a from a gas central heating system and a security alarm system which also incorporates the external cellar.
