Wonderful ground and garden flat with beautiful south facing garden.
1A Douglas Gardens is a spectacular, end of terrace ground and garden flat with an extraordinary garden in Edinburgh's sought after west end.
The property has wonderful proportions, lovely bright rooms, many period features including timber floors, working shutters and fine cornicing.
The accommodation is set over two floors with spacious living and flexible bedroom space. Of particular note is the magnificent west facing drawing room with its central fireplace, cornicing and natural timber panelling.
Stone steps rise from the pavement to a welcoming and broad entrance hall. To the front is the drawing room whilst to the rear there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom.
Stairs lead from the hallway to the lower floor where there is further living and bedroom accommodation. To the front there is a wonderful open plan sitting room and breakfasting kitchen. From the sitting area a door opens to the front court yard and from the kitchen a door opens to the garden.
There are two bedrooms on this level which are serviced by a spacious bathroom.
One of this properties biggest selling points is the immaculate, enclosed garden that is to the side and rear. The main focal point is the south facing lawn and patio which has direct access from the kitchen. The lawn is bordered by a wide variety of mature plants and shrubs providing a lot of colour, while there is a well positioned patio to the rear, which is very private and a delightful sun trap. There are further areas of garden to the side and rear of the house, again with an interesting variety of mature plants and shrubs, and seating areas to take advantage of the light throughout the day. In addition to the garden, there are four under pavement cellars which provide useful storage space and a sauna.
Owners have access to Douglas Gardens which are approximately 4.4 acres in size and has mature woodland, lawns and walks by the Water of Leith. Subscription to the gardens costs approximately £145 per annum.
