Occupying the second and third floors of a beautiful Georgian townhouse, the flat is approached via an imposing communal stair. All of the living space is on the second floor. To the front is the large drawing room which is flooded with natural light and showcases impressive views across Ainslie Place Gardens, bespoke book shelves and a fireplace. From here there is access to the study.
To the rear of this floor is the family kitchen which has been very well appointed with plenty of storage units. The breath-taking views from here are far reaching across Eaton Terrace, the Dean Gardens and beyond. Also to the rear is the dining room, and together, these two rooms provide excellent entertaining spaces. There is a bathroom off the entrance hall as well as the stairs which lead to the upper floor.
This floor consists of three spacious double bedrooms, all of which benefit from excellent built-in wardrobes. All of them have wonderful natural light and impressive views across the city, with the master bedroom capturing views of Edinburgh Castle. There are two shower rooms completing this floor, a Jack and Jill accessed from bedrooms one and two and a further newly, fitted room at the rear of the property. Bedroom four, a charming single bedroom enjoys views of Ainslie Place Gardens.
Outside, access is available to The Moray Feu Gardens for a modest annual fee; an oasis of calm to city centre life. These comprise Ainslie Place Gardens, Moray Place Gardens, The Bank Gardens and Randolph Crescent Gardens. There is residents' permit parking available nearby.
The homely, attractive interiors and prime location combine to make this a highly appealing property.
Ainslie Place lies a short walk from the city centre and the sophisticated Stockbridge area. The New Town has some of the first and least spoilt Georgian architecture in Britain and continues to be one of the most popular residential areas in Edinburgh.
The New Town is well-known for the quality of city centre living it offers, with a wonderful and varied choice of local amenities that include art galleries, independent shops and fashionable restaurants, bars and bistros. An excellent choice of schools is within easy reach, including The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, St. George's School for Girls, The Mary Erskine School and Stewart's Melville College.
The property is within walking distance of Haymarket Railway Station and is well-connected to the rest of the city by a number of bus routes.
