4/5 North Charlotte Street Edinburgh, Edinburgh
Occupying the top floors of an A-listed Georgian tenement on prestigious North Charlotte Street, this breathtaking double upper flat represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a contemporary family home at the heart of the capital. Seldom available on the open market, the historic property has been sympathetically modernised and finished to a flawless standard, yet retains all the traditional charm and character of an exclusive New Town residence.
Nestled on the edge of the New Town and the West End, the classic tenement simply oozes Georgian grandeur with its cream-sandstone façade and original twelve-pane sash-and-case windows. Stone steps flanked by wrought-iron railings lead up to the imposing main entrance, which is notable (along with 1 North Charlotte Street) for its exquisite doorpiece and Georgian fanlight. The secure main door swings open into a splendid shared entrance, where soaring ceilings and original features instantly set the tone for the accommodation to follow. Also on the ground floor is a large cupboard, great for families with kids to store buggies and other larger items. Ascending to the third floor, behind the front door awaits an impressive hall with an abundance of space for furniture or cloakroom storage. Here oak strip flooring and a warm palette of heritage tones introduce the contemporary-classic aesthetic that prevails throughout.
On the right, the inviting living room is flooded with natural light from a southwest-facing bay window complete with built-in window seats – perfect for gazing out across the iconic city skyline. As night falls, the room acquires a warm and cosy ambience courtesy of the handsome fireplace and living-flame gas fire at the heart of the room. Designed for maximum cohesion and flexibility, partition doors open into the vast dining kitchen adjacent, which can also be accessed directly from the hall. This quintessential family hub and entertaining space is equipped with a luxurious cream-gloss and granite fitted kitchen, and is replete with a full range of integrated Siemens appliances, including a five-burner gas hob with an overhead extractor hood, an electric single oven, a microwave, a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine. A prime example of stylish and functional open-plan design, the long peninsula creates separation between the kitchen and the dining area, which features charming built-in bench seating.
Returning to the hall, this level also accommodates a delightful southwest-facing double bedroom with a pristine en-suite shower room, plus another elegant double bedroom and the sunny three-piece family bathroom, which benefits from a south-facing skylight. The entire fourth floor is dedicated to the lavish master bedroom, which enjoys far-reaching views across the Firth of Forth towards Fife. Inspired by a boutique hotel, this tranquil haven incorporates substantial built-in wardrobes and storage, as well as a stunning en-suite bathroom with a double shower compartment, a deep bathtub and twin basins. Gas central heating ensures optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
Residents of North Charlotte Square may apply for membership to Charlotte Square Gardens or a number of other private gardens in the New Town, subject to a modest annual subscription. There is also a parking space at the back of the property and zoned permit parking (1A) is available in the vicinity.
