58/4 Manor Place
Yielding enviable coastal and castle views, this superior three-bedroom top/third-floor flat forms part of a handsome Georgian B-listed terrace townhouse; centrally located in Edinburgh’s sought-after West End, close to the Water of Leith and within strolling distance of the capital’s shops and world-class attractions. Inside, the flat is flawlessly presented with a tasteful contemporary finish throughout. Benefiting from secure entry, the third-floor flat is reached via an impressive communal foyer and stairwell boasting such characterful touches as decorative plasterwork and geometric period floor tiling.
On opening the front door, you step into an airy, high-ceilinged hall incorporating a deep store cupboard. Adorned with authentic cornicing and neutrally decorated, this welcoming entrance area also features quality hardwood flooring which flows effortlessly into the generous reception area. Also enjoying a high ceiling and classic cornicing, the reception area represents a wonderfully congenial space for relaxing and, if desired, seated dining. The space is further enhanced by attractive pastel décor and a beautiful marble fireplace housing a Morsoe Badger wood-burning stove and uniquely fronted by an area of rustic slate chips.
Conveniently connected to the living/dining room, via a panelled glazed door, is a sunny, southerly-facing kitchen providing further space for seated dining – ideal for casual meals and relaxed gatherings with guests. Immaculately-presented with a chic white and wood-effect finish, the kitchen comes replete with fitted cabinetry neatly integrated with a fridge freezer, a washing machine, a dishwasher, an oven and a sleek ceramic hob paired with a statement chimney-style hood. Also located within the flat are two spacious double bedrooms; nestled into the eaves and comfortably carpeted to create a delightfully cosy feel. Both rooms also retain their cornicing detail and charming sash-and-case windows – a feature found throughout much of the home. Lit by a large skylight, the third bedroom, a small single, is currently utilised as a home study, but would also make a perfect nursery or a dressing room. All three bedrooms take full advantage of the property’s prime views with the master bedroom enjoying a vista of Edinburgh Castle and the remaining two bedrooms encapsulating a coastal outlook towards the Firth of Forth. Finally, decorated in tranquil understated tones, the bathroom incorporates a WC, a pedestal basin (with an illuminated wall-mounted mirror) and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glass screen. The property benefits from an efficient gas central heating system. Externally, on-street parking falls under Controlled Zone 1.
