Set on York Place, in the conservation part of Edinburgh’s exclusive New Town and just a stone’s throw from the impressive new St James Centre and opposite the York Place tram stop with direct links to the airport, the location of this generous property will appeal to families, city professionals and investors alike.

Making a warm welcome to this New Town home is a sunny front courtyard with full lighting. At 32 feet long, it offers a superb, fully enclosed outdoor space with a potted garden, seating area, water supply and key safe. To the left are three large converted cellars, offering outstanding extended living space, whilst to the right, the windows of the living room, bedroom, and the imposing original front door.

Once inside you are welcomed by a handy vestibule which in turn gives access to a large reception hallway. Here, the freshly decorated interiors, with striking wallpaper, decorative coving and engineered wood flooring offers the first flavour of the quality décor to follow.

Overlooking the private courtyard is a large and sociable open-plan reception room, cleverly zoned by a breakfast peninsula, to create distinct zones for relaxing, dining and cooking. The spectacular contemporary kitchen comes with an outstanding range of white gloss units neatly hiding an impressive range of integrated appliances including an electric eye-level oven, microwave and grill oven, induction hob, extractor hood, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and wine cooler.

A large utility room, housed in one of the converted cellars, comes with downlights, 8-socket points, kitchen units, a sink, and a discreet laundry area. The ultra-modern kitchen design flows seamlessly into the traditional Georgian reception room with its conservation double-glazed sash-and-case window (with a window seat with incorporated storage), ornate cornicing and ceiling rose.

This New Town home comes with four bedrooms – three generous doubles and a spacious single bedroom. The master bedroom enjoys a tranquil garden aspect and a designer contemporary en-suite shower room, complete with a newly fitted double walk-in shower, razor electrical point, wall-hung vanity unit with sink, WC and tiles framed by exquisite wallpaper. The second double bedroom is at the front of the property and comes with a feature wall, twin windows (both with window seats and incorporated storage) and a sunny aspect.

The third bedroom, also a double has been fitted with a snug carpet and enjoys garden views, whilst the four bedroom is a generous single, currently used as a nursery. Servicing the remaining bedrooms is a luxurious four-piece family bathroom; at the heart is a traditional rolltop foot-and-claw bath, with a modern shower enclosure, wall-hung vanity unit with a matching WC-suite, razor electrical points, beautiful porcelain tiling and ornamental wallpaper. Completing the internal accommodation is a beautiful guest WC, fashioned in the same style.

Externally, the current owner has remodelled the large cellars, creating three spacious rooms to complement the property. All three cellars have been damp-proofed, with framework and plastered walls, all under guarantee. The first room is a spacious utility room with downlights, 8 socket points, kitchen cabinets, a sink and space for a washer and dryer. The second room now offers a large home office, ideal for peace and quiet from the rest of the property, and the third is a very generous walk-in storeroom. All the rooms have been fitted with ample electrical points and downlights, making them versatile for numerous uses.

Gas central heating, powered by a combi-boiler with a Smart Meter and a HIVE system, plus newly installed conservation double-glazing throughout, create a warm yet cost-effective living environment, all your round. In addition to the sunny private courtyard, 12a York Place has access to the magnificent Queen Street Gardens for annual fee and Zone 2 permit parking is available.

Extras: All fitted light fittings, floor coverings, blinds and integrated appliances are included in the sale.
