Situated on the first floor of an exclusive residential conversion in an attractive sandstone building, this contemporary, architect-designed apartment offers a unique, three bedroom Morningside home, finished to a flawless specification with the added benefit of gated, underground parking.
The prime location of the property means that a Waitrose and M&S Food Hall are within easy walking distance, as well as a host of independent retailers, coffee houses, galleries, a luxury cinema, green open spaces, and Morningside’s best schools.
Positioned behind a stone wall with gated access, the period building instantly charms with its handsome stone façade, traditional sash-and-case windows, and stylish modern additions, including lit, tiled steps. Behind the heavy front door (with secure entry) awaits an attractively presented communal entrance, enhanced by tasteful décor. The staircase winds up to the first floor, with the whole area flooded with natural light from large windows and skylights.
As you enter the long hall, pale oak flooring paired with designer wallpaper—all lit by integrated LED wall lighting—introduces the cohesive interior design employed throughout.
The large rear-facing living room is bathed in southerly sunshine from two conservation standard, double-glazed sash-and-case windows and partly glazed double doors that lead to a sunny balcony overlooking gardens. Here, contemporary grey walls are framed by crisp white cornicing, and, for extra comfort, a matching carpet. Large enough to accommodate a bistro table and chairs, the balcony is the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
The impressive oak floored kitchen and dining area, meanwhile, is designed around family meals and entertaining. A picture of understated elegance, the mink-coloured, handleless kitchen is topped with a premium, glass-effect worktop and hides an impressive range of
integrated appliances, including a touchcontrol ceramic hob with a concealed extractor hood, a multi-function oven, microwave oven and grill, a dishwasher, a frost-free fridge/freezer, and a washing machine.
The dining area is ideal for family meals and entertaining, with three enormous glass panes extending the space, creating an airy atmosphere with views into the hallway.
The property comes with three well-proportioned double bedrooms that are fitted with thick-pile carpet, which adds further comfort and echoes the stylish décor of the rest of the apartment.
The sumptuous master suite further benefits from double-fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room that comes complete with underfloor heating, a large shower enclosure and a back-to-wall WC-suite.
Offering a large footprint and fitted to luxury specifications, is an impressive four-piece
bathroom. Here, underfloor heating supplements a deep, freestanding bath (beautifully framed by textured porcelain tiles), a wet room-style shower with a rainforest head, a matching back-to-wall WC-suite, fitted storage, a heated towel rail, and an illuminated mirror.
Gas-fired central heating powered by a combi boiler and conservation-standard, double-glazed timber sash-and-case windows ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
The apartment comes with an allocated underground parking space that is accessed by a remote-controlled electric gate. Free parking at evenings and weekends is available on Newbattle Terrace, with additional permit parking falling within Zone S2.
