This stunning top floor apartment forms part of a traditional four storey stone built tenement originally constructed during the late 19th century. The tastefully modernised interior is arranged around an ‘L’ shaped hallway and offers a most comfortable home which retains some attractive original period features, including plain and decorative cornice work, and a handsome fireplace within the bright bay windowed sitting/dining room with its tiled inset, open flue, and timber surround. Timber floors have been sanded and sealed, and together with stained skirtings and doors, add great character to the property.
Despite being entered from Comely Bank Street, being on a corner, front facing rooms occupy a position within Comely Bank Terrace, and enjoy lovely southerly aspects across Dean Bowling Club towards surrounding buildings and the northern edge of Edinburgh’s fashionable West End. The main bedroom however sits to the rear of the property overlooking the well-kept tree-lined communal garden. A bonus to this room is a door leading to a useful storage area with a small window and the boiler. Accessed from the sitting room, the attractive well fitted contemporary kitchen has a tiled floor, mahogany style worktops and splashbacks, and a good range of appliances. The spacious bathroom displays a white three piece suite with an electric shower fitting over the bath, and a feature stained glass internal window. Further benefits include gas central heating fired by a Combi boiler, refurbished timber framed windows, good storage space, and a security entry phone system. This impressive apartment is in immaculate condition, and early viewing is highly recommended.
The popular district of Comely Bank lies around one mile north-west of the city centre, below Edinburgh’s fashionable West End, close to Stockbridge and Dean Village. This very convenient location affords easy access to a wide range of commercial facilities, including a good selection of restaurants, bistros and bars. George Street, Princes Street and the Financial District are within walking distance, while Stockbridge with its unique ‘village’ atmosphere offers a further selection of local shops, and a regular Market every Sunday. Comely Bank Waitrose is only a short walk from the property for sale, while Craigleith Retail Park is a few minutes’ drive. The lovely Royal Botanical Garden and Inverleith Park are also within easy striking distance. Regular bus services within the area connect with many parts of the city, and nearby Comely Bank Road offers a fast connection towards the west side of Edinburgh, with onward links to the M8, M9 and M90 motorway network, the city by-pass and the International Airport. Several well respected primary and secondary schools are within easy striking distance.
Comely Bank Street runs in a north to south direction, joining Comely Bank Road with Learmonth Place. Number 39 sits on the east side of the street, on the corner of Comley Bank Terrace opposite the bowling green.
The well-kept enclosed communal back garden is mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by well stocked borders and mature trees. Residents within the building contribute to its upkeep, and stair cleaning.
