Simply enchanting, two-bedroom first-floor flat set within a restored 18th century tenement just off the Canongate, offering an historic home or investment in Edinburgh's Old Town conservation area.
Constructed circa 1770 and sympathetically restored in the 1960s as part of extensive regeneration of the Canongate, Chessel's Court represents a significant, surviving example of 18th-century Edinburgh tenements. The subject of the sale forms part of an A-listed tenement building on the west side of the courtyard, and is characterised by carefully preserved period features, such as its harled and painted rubble facade, and twelve-pane sash-and-case windows. Chessel's Court can be approached on foot from the Canongate, or by car via cobbled Gullan's Close. The property is accessed by way of a traditional shared entrance with a secure entry-phone system, followed by an original stone spiral staircase. On the first floor, adjacent to the front door is an external store; inside, the generous hall incorporates three storage cupboards of varying sizes. At one end of the hall is the spacious, triple-aspect living/dining room. Recessed windows to the north, east and west fill the room with natural light, and bring the leafy outdoors in. The L-shaped room falls naturally into dedicated zones for dining and relaxing, and boasts a living-flame gas fire framed by a painted timber surround and a slate-tiled hearth. The room further benefits from an excellent selection of built-in storage, namely cupboards, benches and recessed shelving. The good-sized kitchen adjacent boasts a pair of windows to the southwest, and is appointed with an array of classic white cabinetry and solid timber worktops. Integrated appliances include a four-burner gas hob, an extractor hood and an electric single oven. There is also space for a freestanding fridge, washing machine and dishwasher. At the other end of the hall are two bright and spacious double bedrooms, both of which are equipped with generous built-in wardrobes and storage. The largest, L-shaped double bedroom further enjoys dual-aspect windows to the east and west. Completing the accommodation is the light and airy three-piece bathroom, which comprises a bath, a wall-mounted shower with a glass screen, an inset basin, a toilet, and fitted storage. The flat features timber-framed sash-and-case windows (single-glazed) and is heated by way of a gas central heating system.
The property enjoys use of well-tended gardens within Chessel's Court and is just minutes' walk from beautiful Holyrood Park at the foot of the Royal Mile. Residents are eligible for a parking permit (Zone 3), subject to the standard annual fee. The flat further benefits from its own generous storage cellar, which is accessible from the spiral staircase and externally via a locked gate - ideal for storing bikes, pushchairs and outdoor equipment.
