19/2 Abercromby Place
New Town, Edinburgh, EH3 6LB
Beautifully appointed two bedroom lower ground floor main door flat, with parking, within a recently converted Georgian townhouse
Abercromby Place is the continuation of Heriot Row. One of Edinburgh's most graceful Georgian crescents, it was the first to be built in the New Town. The original layout was designed by Robert Reid, the last holder of the office of King's Architect for Scotland. The majority of the properties
face onto Queen Street Gardens East providing wonderful open aspects and superb amenity for the occupiers, who are entitled to a key upon application and subscription.
A short walk from Abercromby Place lies George Street with a mix of chic boutiques, whilst additional fashionable shopping is available close by at Multrees Walk. A full range of facilities and local amenities is available in nearby Stockbridge, with a variety of delicatessens and local independent
shops, as well as the cosmopolitan Broughton Street with its range of popular bars, restaurants and shops. A Tesco supermarket is located within easy reach at Canonmills whilst there is a Sainsbury's local on St Andrews Square as well as Waitrose in Comely Bank. A wide variety of cultural and sporting amenities is also close at hand with the King's Theatre and a range of gyms as well as the art galleries of Dundas Street and Princes Street, to name a few.
There is excellent road access to both the east and west with easy links to the A1 and the A90, whilst Waverley Train Station and the bus terminus are both within walking distance. A number of local and private schools are easily accessible including the Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Stewart's Melville College and St George's School for Girls.
19 Abercromby Place has been divided into five separate apartments, one on each of the floors of a Category A listed Georgian townhouse. On the ground floor, there is a one bedroom flat with one bathroom whilst the remaining four properties, situated on the first, second, lower ground and
basement levels, each have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. All the flats are accessed from the impressive shared common stair, which has been carpeted and beautifully decorated. A stone platt in front of the property leads to the shared main door into a welcoming entrance vestibule, with a
timber and glazed double door which opens up to the stairwell.
Each property has been finished to a high specification to provide for contemporary city centre living, including well appointed, luxury kitchens with integrated dishwashers, washer/dryers, electric ovens, gas hobs, fridge/freezers and microwaves. The master bedrooms in the two bedroom flats have en suite shower rooms with floor to ceiling tiling, WC and wash hand basin, and each has an additional bathroom, with shower over the bath, finished to a similar specification. The properties are individually decorated with a modern range of wallpapers and emulsion paints whilst the floors are carpeted throughout, apart from tiling in the bathrooms and the kitchens. Many of the original features within the property have been retained, including marble mantelpieces and decorative plaster work in Flats 3 and 4, whilst all the properties have working shutters in the bedrooms and sitting rooms. Flat 2 is situated on the lower ground floor and has its own main door entrance.
