9/2 Lauderdale Street
Seldom available on the market, this two-bedroom first-floor tenement flat offers an elegant period home in one of the capital’s most desirable residential areas.
Cobbled Lauderdale Street is exceptionally quiet and peaceful, yet residents are never more than a few minutes’ walk from the wide-open spaces of Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows, or from the hustle and bustle of Bruntsfield Place (including the Warrender Swim centre just round the corner).
Characterised by the inimitable proportions and grandeur synonymous with the era, the Victorian property has also retained a wealth of carefully preserved original features, namely sash-and-case windows, decorative plasterwork, and exquisite internal doors and glazing. Accessed via the secure shared entrance, the beautiful tiled stairwell instantly exudes period charm. On the first floor, the front door swings open to reveal a magnificent reception hall, where restored floorboards and soaring ceilings illustrate the calibre of the accommodation to follow. Starting in the west-facing living room, this vast space is flooded with light from a spectacular four-panel bay window, which is framed by classic timber panelling. At the focal point of the room is a feature fireplace with a living-flame gas fire, flanked by an Edinburgh Press.
Perfect for entertaining, the living room is supplemented by the equally impressive dining room to the rear, which provides flexible scope for various configurations.
The room incorporates a generous walk-in pantry with lighting and power, and flows into the contemporary galley kitchen. In addition to ideal storage and workspace, the kitchen is replete with an integrated gas hob, an extractor hood and an integrated double oven, plus extra space for freestanding appliances. The flat boasts two double bedrooms to the front and rear respectively, both of which enjoy outstanding proportions and open views. The modern three-piece bathroom is exceptionally bright and airy, and features an electric shower-over-bath with a glass shower screen. Currently used as a home office, the versatile box room benefits from natural light courtesy of internal glazing, as well as ample power points. Completing the accommodation are a walk-in cupboard and a practical broom cupboard. The property has retained original sash-and-case windows throughout, which have been draughtproofed for optimum sound and heat insulation.
The flat enjoys use of the delightful shared garden to the rear, which features a well-tended lawn/drying green, and a selection of mature shrubs and trees. Lauderdale Street offers ample controlled parking bays subject to residents’ permit (Zone S1) or pay-and-display parking.
