McEwan Fraser is delighted to present this beautiful five-bedroom, two public roomed, link-terraced, B listed house to the market. One of the oldest continuously occupied properties in Leith, the property dates from the early 18th century and has some wonderfully quaint features unique to the building from this era. Internally, the property boasts generous accommodation over three floors and has the potential to be a wonderful long term family home. The property also benefits from gas central heating and a low maintenance walled rear garden with a summer house.
Entering the property on the ground floor, there is immediate access to two bedrooms, shower room, large cupboard and living room with attached utility area. Both of the bedrooms are well-proportioned doubles, one front-facing, the other with garden access. The larger of the two bedrooms faces the rear of the property, includes integrated storage and gives direct access to the rear garden. The ground floor living room also opens directly onto the garden. A generous reception space, the living room has ample space for a variety of different furniture configurations which would give a purchaser plenty of flexibility to create their ideal entertaining space. The living room has an attached utility area with plenty of storage and work surface space. This gives excellent potential for the room to be converted into a generous dining kitchen. A three-piece shower room and large cupboard space completes the ground floor.
Climbing the original stone staircase, the first floor comprises a large sitting room with an attached kitchen, master bedroom, small utility area and family bathroom. The sitting room is a stunning space with a dual aspect, torrents of natural light and neutral decor. The ornate cornice, exposed floorboards and inbuilt shelving are all original, and a working fireplace forms a natural focal point. To one end of the sitting room, you find a kitchen with a breakfast bar which could be removed if opting to repurpose the utility room on the ground floor.
Moving across the landing and past a large cupboard area, you find the spacious master bedroom. Your eye will be immediately drawn to the floor to ceiling sash window with wooden shutters, which are typical of properties of this age. The bedroom also enjoys original exposed floorboards, integrated wardrobes and ample space for a full range of free-standing furniture. Accommodation on this level is completed by the family bathroom, which boasts a white three piece suite with shower over bath.
An original wooden staircase leads to the third floor, which includes two further large double bedrooms which both include integrated storage. Bedroom four also has a covered fireplace which could be reopened if desired.
Externally, the property has been maintained to an exacting standard and has recently undergone a programme of refurbishment.
This is a magnificent property and virtually unique in the area. Viewing is absolutely essential to fully appreciate the situation of the property and the amazing potential it offers.
