The terraced townhouses that line cobbled Carlton Street are a stunning example of classical Georgian architecture, adorned with a continuous balustrade parapet and cast-iron balconies on the first floor. Stone steps and an entrance platt bound by cast-iron railings (also A-listed) lead up to the secure main door, which opens into a grand shared entrance hall. Ascending to the first floor, welcoming you into the property is a good-sized entrance hall with ample storage for coats and shoes.
From here a traditional staircase with an elaborate oak and cast-iron balustrade curves up to the second-floor landing, which is flooded with natural light from a breathtaking cupola. Here beautifully restored floorboards paired with heritage décor set an elegant tone for the accommodation to follow.
The spacious living/dining room enjoys natural light and tranquil views courtesy of an original sash-and-case window (with timber shutters) and a small square window to the rear.
At the focal point of the room is a splendid fireplace with a decorative tiled surround and a rustic stone hearth. The living/dining room flows into the sunny dining kitchen, which boasts a vast central skylight. The space is equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus an integrated four-burner gas hob, an integrated electric single oven/grill, an integratedfridge/freezer, and an integrated dishwasher.
Continuing along the landing you reach the principal double bedroom, which boasts a feature fireplace and twin built-in wardrobes. The principal bedroom and the second double bedroom adjacent both enjoy large skylights with a favourable southwesterly aspect. Completing the accommodation is the classic-contemporary four-piece bathroom, comprising a roll-top bath, a corner shower enclosure with a thermostatic shower, and a traditional basin and toilet suite.
The flat also benefits from a large boiler/landing cupboard, as well as private, partially floored loft storage.
Controlled permit parking (Zone 5) is available on Carlton Street and in the vicinity. Residents may be eligible for private membership to St Bernard’s Crescent Gardens or Dean Gardens in the New Town.
