Description

This spacious second floor apartment forms part of a handsome four storey stone-built tenement originally constructed around the end of the 19th century. Approached from a classical shared entrance hall and staircase with tiled walls and marbled steps, the property is designed around a large reception hall with doors to all main apartments. These include a comfortable and bright front facing bay windowed sitting room with a log burning stove/fire, an impressive kitchen/dining room displaying some ‘Industrial’ styling, the useful adjacent utility room, two double bedrooms, and a bathroom which incorporates a shower fitting and screen over the bath. There is also a Box Room/store which can be accessed either from the sitting room or reception hall.

Benefits include gas fired central heating and a security entry phone system. All timber floors have been sanded and sealed, and further contrasting features include a section of natural brick wall within the kitchen/dining room, concrete slab worktops in the kitchen and utility room, and fine original decorative cornice work and friezes in the sitting room and main bedroom.

Residents within the building have access to a substantial shared back garden. This attractive area is mainly laid to lawn and is surrounded by stone walls and wrought iron fencing, together with many shrubs and mature trees.

The popular Marchmont district is located on the south side of the city, just over one mile from Princes Street.  The open parklands of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links are close by, and such a convenient location affords easy access to many commercial amenities including a wide range of shops, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and bars. Holyrood Park, the Commonwealth Pool, and a number of University buildings are within walking distance and further local shopping is available in nearby Newington. Well respected schools within the district include Sciennes Primary, and James Gillespie Secondary. Regular bus services run to and from the city centre and other parts of Edinburgh, and access can be gained to the city bypass, linking with East Lothian and the M8 and M9 motorway systems, together with Edinburgh International Airport.

Spottiswoode Road runs in an east to west direction and joins Marchmont Road with Lauderdale Street. Number 34 sits on the north-west side of the road, close to Lauderdale Street.
