Description

Tucked on highly desirable Gardner’s Crescent in Fountainbridge, this A-listed main-door garden flat promises the best of both worlds: a tranquil retreat at the heart of the Scottish capital.

Dating back to 1826, the classical Georgian crescent was carefully restored in the 1980s and is now one of the most sought-after locations in the city centre.

Residents are within minutes’ walk of Edinburgh’s key business and finance districts at Haymarket, Tollcross and the West End, not to mention its world-class cultural, heritage and leisure attractions. 16A enjoys its own courtyard and private access to the walled rear garden, as well as residents’ parking (Zone 4) and use of Gardner’s Green directly adjacent. The chain-free property is presented to an appealing, move-in standard throughout and would appeal to a variety of purchasers: from city professionals to buy-to-let investors.

Stone steps flanked by cast-iron railings curve down to the private, west-facing courtyard, which benefits from the last of the evening sun. Welcoming you inside is a practical entrance vestibule with storage, followed by a spacious hall with further built-in storage and space for a versatile study area. Here classic grey and white décor, traditional cornices and rich oak flooring instantly create a timeless, elegant ambience. This continues into the airy living/dining room on the right, which boasts twin sash-and-case windows to the front. With flexible floorspace for various configurations, the living/dining room also flows into the bijou kitchen via an archway.

The kitchen is well appointed with fitted base/wall cabinets and workspace, plus an integrated electric double oven, four-burner gas hob and fridge freezer. There is also space for an undercounter washing machine.

Both double bedrooms enjoy a tranquil setting and a bright, east-facing aspect to the rear. The larger boasts recessed shelving and a fitted wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors; the smaller allows direct access to the walled garden via a glazed door.

Completing the accommodation is the three-piece bathroom, which also benefits from an east-facing aspect to the rear. Presented in fresh neutral hues, the bathroom features a bath with wall-mounted shower above, plus a vanity washbasin, a chrome towel warmer and a toilet.

The A-listed property benefits from traditional timber-framed sash windows and is heated by way of a new gas combi boiler (installed in autumn 2019). The walled garden to the rear comprises a raised lawn/drying green, and is supplemented with a west-facing private courtyard to the front.
