4/2 Western Gardens
Promising a stylish period home in one of the capital’s most desirable suburbs, this generous second-floor tenement flat, with two bedrooms, spacious living areas and access to a large manicured communal garden and on-street parking, is further supplemented by tasteful modern interiors, charming original features and far-reaching views. Situated in leafy Murrayfield, along a quiet no-through road, the flat offers an enviable mix of tranquillity and convenience; lying just over a mile from Haymarket train station and the West End, and a stone’s throw from Roseburn Park and the scenic Water of Leith.
Reached via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the flat opens into a welcoming hall housing three useful store cupboards and space for freestanding furniture. This airy, high-ceilinged entrance area perfectly showcases the immaculate charming interiors on offer, with understated pastel-toned décor, hardwood flooring, ceiling cornicing and stripped internal doors. Leading off the hall and accessed via a door with an enchanting stained-glassed detail is an elegant living room benefiting from all day sun, courtesy of a dual-aspect outlook including a large bay window with an authentic panelled surround and delightful far-reaching views. This wonderfully light and spacious room, with plentiful space for comfortable seating, built-in storage and further tasteful décor, enjoys an abundance of characterful features including stripped pine flooring, cornicing and a ceiling rose, and an Edinburgh Press for display items. Finally, an attractive period-inspired fireplace with a living-flame fire creates a homely focal feature and a cosy atmosphere in the colder months.
Also, south-facing with a bright dual-aspect outlook and garden views, is a contemporary kitchen representing a sociable space for cooking, dining and entertaining, with a central area for a large table and chairs. Neutrally decorated and retaining its original cornicing, this impeccably presented area is fitted with a selection of modern wood-styled cabinets complemented by coordinating worktops, illuminated by atmospheric downlighting, chic metro wall tiles and practical floor tiling.
Neatly integrated into the space is a dishwasher, an oven, a gas hob (with a statement chimney-style hood) and a large Samsung fridge freezer. Next door, a utility room discreetly houses a freestanding washing machine and a tumble dryer.
The home also accommodates two good-sized double bedrooms, continuing the property’s understated decorative finish supplemented by a classic coving detail and fitted carpeting for optimum comfort. One bedroom also features a handy built-in store cupboard.
Finally, reached from the hall via a door with further stained-glass ornamentation, is a bright, chicly-appointed bathroom finished with sophisticated tiling and wood-styled panelling. The bathroom comes replete with a hidden cistern WC, a wall-hung basin 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.
Outside, this highly-desirable suburban home enjoys shared access to a beautifully-maintained sizeable rear garden incorporating a neat lawn bordered by colourful flowerbeds and hedgerows, and sheltered by mature trees. On-street parking is also available in the vicinity.
