ELEGANT AND CHARMING DOUBLE UPPER FLAT SITUATED IN A HIGHLY REGARDED RESIDENTIAL AREA

Shared entrance vestibule, carpeted staircase, entrance hall, drawingroom, large kitchen/diningroom/familyroom, 4 bedrooms, one with dressingroom and one with en-suite, family bathroom. Gas central heating. Double glazing. Fantastic eaves storage space.  

The property offered for sale is an extremely desirable double upper flat located in the sought-after residential area of Trinity.  There are local thriving Tennis and Bowling Clubs and the property is located within a short drive of the Ocean Terminal development which houses popular bistros and restaurants and a cinema complex.  The property is also convenient for the Scottish Office and Britannia Visitor Centre at The Shore.  This fine family home is within a short walk of Victoria Public Park, and both Trinity Primary and Trinity Academy schools are located close by.  Recreational amenities in the area include the David Lloyd Tennis and Fitness Club, and the Alien Rock Climbing Centre in nearby Newhaven.  A frequent public transport system provides regular services to the City Centre, which is a mere 10-minute drive away, and the cycle path close by also gives access through varied scenic areas of the City.  The area of Trinity is well-served by many small shops and superstores including Asda, Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury which are all easily accessed. 

Located in an elegant street of similar properties, this charming double upper flat retains many original features including cornice work and high skirtings, and also benefits from quality double glazing, Combi gas central heating, and un-restricted on-street parking to the front.  

The property is accessed through double timber storm doors to a shared entrance vestibule which in turn leads to a runner-carpeted staircase providing access to the first floor with a stylish glazed balustrade at the top of the stairs.  There is a useful cupboard housing the meters (including Smart meter) at ground-floor level.  The welcoming hall is extremely bright and spacious with an abundance of natural light streaming in through the large skylight.  The impressive drawingroom has a bay window to front and focuses on a superb fireplace with timber mantel, and a marble hearth and inset housing an open fire (presently blocked up).  The flat also benefits from a large kitchen/diningroom/familyroom which is fitted with cream wall, base, larder and carousel units and has ample space for a table and chairs, along with a sofa and other occasional furniture.  The quality Smeg and Bosch appliances include a Smeg Range-style cooker, Bosch cooker hood, free-standing Smeg fridge and Bosch washing machine and dishwasher, all the appliances to be included in the sale price.  Double windows to the rear and a working pulley add to the attraction of this fabulous, relaxing family area.

The accommodation on the lower floor is completed by bedroom 4 to the front of the property and the family bathroom which houses a white three-piece suite comprising a bath with overbath rainhead shower, and a washhand basin and w.c. to side. 

 A carpeted staircase leads up to the upper floor which again is illuminated with the natural light from the large skylight.  There are three generously-proportioned double bedrooms on this floor, the master bedroom benefitting from a bay window to the rear and having a dressing-room fitted with shelving and hanging rails.  This bedroom also benefits from a hatch to an attic storage space.  The second bedroom has an en-suite wetroom off which comprises a small rainhead shower, with washhand basin and w.c. to side.   Bedroom 3 is presently in use as a child’s bedroom but could easily accommodate a double bed, if required, and there is a window with fitted window seat with storage below, providing views over the Forth.    

 IN CONCLUSION

This is a truly impressive double upper flat which has been upgraded and modernized by the present owners, whilst still retaining original features expected of a property of this calibre.  The flat is likely to attract substantial interest for professionals and families, and we therefore recommend an early viewing to fully appreciate the property we are now delighted to bring to the market.
