*PART EXCHANGE AVAILABLE* Occupying the upper floor of a detached villa in desirable Murrayfield, this three bedroom upper flat represents an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a unique cottage-style home just a stone's throw from the picturesque Water of Leith. Every inch of the property has been lovingly refurbished over the years, culminating in a striking blend of period charm and contemporary design, including such original features as panelled doors and a splendid fireplace. Externally the flat enjoys use of a shared garden/drying green and idyllic views across the Water of Leith and Roseburn Park, as far as the majestic Pentland Hills.

Externally the flat enjoys use of a shared garden/drying green and idyllic views across the Water of Leith and Roseburn Park, as far as the majestic Pentland Hills. Built circa 1900, the late Victorian/early Edwardian detached villa instantly impresses with its stone facade and vast windows. A side path and stone steps at the rear lead up to the generous front door step, which benefits from magnificent views and all-day sun. The traditional front door swings open to reveal a stylish entrance vestibule, followed by a spacious hall floored in soft grey carpets. Starting in the front-facing living room, this elegant space is bathed in natural light and allows scope for various configurations. At the heart of the room is a splendid feature fireplace, flanked by a classic Edinburgh Press. The south-facing dining kitchen provides a wonderful setting for busy family meals and relaxed entertaining, again with spectacular views to the rear.
The timber-effect fitted kitchen conceals a wealth of storage, and houses a range of integrated appliances, namely a five-burner gas hob, an electric double oven/grill and a (brand new) dishwasher. This leaves ample space for a freestanding washing machine, a freestanding fridge/freezer and a convivial dining area. Both double bedrooms enjoy appealing proportions and traditional press cupboards, while the single bedroom would also make an ideal home office or study. Completing the accommodation is the pristine three piece bathroom, which boasts a thermostatic shower with a traditional rainfall showerhead. There is also a partially floored storage attic, which is accessible via a hatch and Ramsay ladder in the hall. Gas central heating and heritage-style double glazing ensure optimum home comfort, heat/ sound insulation and energy efficiency all year round. In addition to the sunny spot by the front door, the property enjoys use of a shared drying green, which is enclosed by a tall hedge and a timber fence. Residents' priority parking (Zone B9) and unrestricted on-street parking are available in the vicinity.
