54/4 Cowan Road
Quietly positioned in the leafy, desirable suburb of Shandon, just 15 minutes’ commute from the heart of Edinburgh, this two-bedroom second-floor flat offers a sumptuous period home with an enviable outlook towards the Pentland Hills. Set within a classic sandstone tenement, the flat enjoys typically grand Victorian proportions and exquisite decorative details, attractively coupled with stylish décor and contemporary finishings throughout.
Approached via a communal stairwell with secure entry, the front door swings open into an impressive entrance hall; wonderfully light and spacious, and retaining beautiful varnished timber flooring and classic cornicing. Two incorporated store cupboards provide handy discreet storage. With a sunny southerly aspect and a generous, flexible footprint, the adjoining reception area includes a stunning bay window set into a panelled surround – a perfect alcove for seated dining with a scenic outlook towards the rugged Pentland Hills. Flawless, lightly-toned décor is enhanced by the charming features of honey-coloured stripped flooring, ornate cornicing, a picture rail and a recessed storage area with an elegant frontage. A magnificent period fireplace with an enchanting tiled and timber surround completes this superbly characterful room. Next door, a stylishly-appointed kitchen is fitted with crisp-white cabinets (with integrated downlighting) supplemented by the rich tones of wood-effect worktops and glossy, deep-red wall panelling.
Further equipping the space are an integrated electric oven and hob, offset by a sleek stainlesssteel splashback and feature hood, an undercounter washing machine and a freestanding fridge freezer. Also housed within this city home are two expansive double bedrooms featuring built-in storage and presented in tranquil pastel hues with luxurious fitted carpeting. These incorporate a master suite and a further bedroom with a favourable southerly-facing aspect. The master bedroom is adjoined by a bright en-suite shower room designed to effortlessly complement the bedroom’s decorative finish. Here, a chic WC-suite, set into vanity storage, accompanies a shower enclosure. Finally, mirroring the shower room’s stylish look, is a bathroom replete with a WC, an inset basin, and a shower-over-bath heightened by quality, contemporary fixtures including a towel radiator. Gas central heating and double glazing guarantee a warm, energyefficient climate all year round.
Outside, the flat benefits from shared access to a delightful rear garden with a large well-tended lawn, as well as unrestricted on-street parking in the immediate vicinity.
