Part of a b-listed former hospital complex, just minutes' walk from The Shore, this two-bedroom first-floor flat represents a rare opportunity to acquire a stunning home and a precious part of Leith's rich history. The property is set within the Jubilee Wing on King Street, which was constructed to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897, and is characterised by the grand proportions and natural light synonymous with Victorian hospital ward design. The flat further benefits from use of shared gardens and a private parking space within the gated car park.
The secure main entrance on King Street leads into a breathtaking double-height foyer with vast windows and an original staircase curving up to the first floor. Welcoming you into Flat 4 is a spacious hall with luxurious parquet tiles underfoot. To the right is a bright and airy double bedroom with generous built-in wardrobes; to the left is an immaculate bathroom, comprising a mains-fed shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, a semi-pedestal basin, a close-coupled toilet and a chrome towel warmer. Continuing along the hall (passing a staircase to the mezzanine level) you reach the heart of the home: The magnificent open-plan kitchen, living room and dining area. The space is flooded with light from no fewer than four enormous sash windows to the southeast and northwest, and is cleverly zoned into dedicated areas for cooking, dining and relaxing. Positioned beneath the mezzanine and framed by a long breakfast bar, the minimalist off-white and stainless-steel kitchen features an integrated gas hob, an integrated electric oven/grill, an integrated dishwasher, an integrated freezer and an integrated washing machine. The versatile living room/dining area boasts a double-height ceiling and would lend itself to various configurations. The mezzanine level accommodates a three-piece shower room and a large double bedroom overlooking the living/dining room, which could also be used as a home office, study or second sitting room. The b-listed property has retained original sash windows and its gas central heating system has been recently upgraded with a new high-spec boiler, intelligent hive controls and a refurbished water supply system.
Extras all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fixtures and integrated appliances to be included in the sale. Please note: No warranty shall be provided for the condition of the appliances.
