Immaculately presented and beautifully proportioned original double upper in a highly regarded city centre location
16.2 London Street is an immaculately presented double upper villa in a well-regarded New Town address. The property has been extensively modernised and refurbished over recent years yet retaining successfully much its period charm with many original period features.
Entering at street level, a turned carpeted staircase leads to the property. The common area has been recently renovated and is shared with only one other property. The principal reception rooms are set off a welcoming central hallway, with the original stone stair leading to the upper floor, crowned by a large roof light providing plenty of natural light.
The elegant and generously proportioned drawing room is set to the front of the property, with two large south-facing windows making this a particularly bright room. There are working shutters, ornate cornices and a delightful mantelpiece.
Also on this floor is the kitchen with charming northerly outlook. Adjacent to this is a bedroom, which could be used as another reception room if required, and this is served by a shower room to the front.
The stair rises to the upper floor where there are three spacious double bedrooms. The principal bedroom has a well-appointed en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms are complimented by a luxury, modern fitted family bathroom, with freestanding bath and walk-in shower. There is also a utility room on this floor as well as further storage.
The property benefits from north and south facing aspects allowing for plenty of natural light throughout the day, while offering spectacular northerly views over Edinburgh to the hills of Fife.

I love the light, proportions and decor. Having been extensively renovated in recent years, it is beautifully presented throughout.Ben Fox
