52/12 Bath Street, Brighton Mansions
Desirably located just a stone’s throw from Portobello’s promenade and sandy beachfront, and yielding spectacular views across the sea and towards Edinburgh’s iconic Arthur’s Seat, this threebedroom fourth/top-floor flat promises a fabulous coastal home just 20-minutes’ commute from the heart of the capital.
The flat also lies within strolling distance of the suburb’s bustling high street, lined with cafés, independent shops, local supermarkets and boutiques, and served by 24-hour bus links into the city. Occupying a southerly-facing corner position in an Edwardian sandstone tenement, Brighton Mansions has access to a communal garden, the flat exudes an inspiring airy ambience, further heightened by crisp minimalist interiors, and is presented in a true move-in condition. Warmly-toned pine flooring, elegant authentic features and stylish modern fittings complete this outstanding home.
The flat is reached via a communal stairwell with a secure entry system. On opening the front door, you step into an inviting reception hall accommodating the practical features of useful cupboard storage and a traditional clothes pulley. This exceptionally generous, high-ceilinged entrance area creates a wonderful introduction to the generous proportions and charming internal finish on offer. Located at the far end of the hall and bathed in sunny natural light from a south-facing bay window with far-reaching views, is the impressive living room. The room’s elegant appearance is achieved by subtle modern grey décor, accompanied by crisp white skirting and ornate cornicing, and a cast-iron period fireplace. A classic Edinburgh press provides a delightful display shelving area.
Across the hall lies a kitchen boasting a sociable seated dining area, a window seat with a breath-taking beach vista and a further Edinburgh press. Set against chic metro wall tiles is a selection of glossy, charcoal-grey cabinets perfectly complemented by a colourmatched
painted wood floor. Additional benefits of the space comprise an integrated oven and a gas hob, space for freestanding goods, recessed shelving and a built-in cupboard housing a fridge freezer.
Also included in the flat are two large double bedrooms and a good-sized single bedroom with a favourably sunny aspect. All bedrooms retain their cornicing detail, whilst the double rooms take full advantage of the home’s enviable scenic outlook.
Finally, reached via a handy utility area (with fitted shelving, an under counter dishwasher and plumbing for laundry appliances) is a bathroom; brightly-lit by double windows and continuing the home’s appealing understated finish. Here, a hidden cistern WC and a traditional pedestal basin with an incorporated towel rail accompanies a bathtub
enclosed by tongue-and-groove panelling and a generous, separate shower enclosure. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the tenement provides its residents with shared access to a communal garden, laid to lawn. On-street parking within the vicinity is conveniently unrestricted.
