44/2 North Castle Street is a superb city centre apartment that is filled with character and a great deal of unique features.
The property shares a stair with one other apartment and is located on the top floor. The stair is well maintained and quiet with a secure entry system to allow visitors in.
When entering the property you can immediately feel the excitement that lies ahead and as you look up wards to the light and detailed stair case that curls its way through the heart of the apartment. The entrance allows plenty of cloakroom space as well as a neat area under the original stone stairway to use as an office space. Walking up the stairs to the vast hallway the light from above beams down and floods the space, this is further complimented by the beautiful and light wooden flooring. The apartment comprises 3 generous double bedrooms all of which have reinstated shutters and a great deal of space to enjoy. One of the 3 bedrooms boasts an en-suite shower and another of the bedrooms has a wonderful walk in wardrobe that has been configured most conveniently to maximise the available space.Also on the first level of the property there is a large family bathroom and a generous storage cupboard.
A beautiful feature staircase has been added to the property to allow access in to the now open plan kitchen, living and dining area that was once attic space used as servants quarters. By opening up this space, the property has revealed a beautiful stone wall and the exceptional views of both the East and West can be enjoyed. The room is closed off by a floor to ceiling window wall which allows only natural light to escape downstairs and acts as a great sound barrier from living area to sleeping area. The room is completely open and has the same beautiful light wooden flooring continued all the way through.
The kitchen is neatly integrated with Siemens appliances including under counter fridge and freezer, a dishwasher and a double oven. There is the option to cook with both gas and induction on the dual hob and there is still a great amount of remaining surface space that is further supplied by the island that has been put in. There is also a wine and drinks fridge to ensure the perfect temperature is always met and all storage is taken full advantage of.
The living and dining section of this room is vast and makes for a beautiful feature that bursts with history and excitement. The original stone wall stands proudly and is a lovely focal point that is complimented further by the lovely coal burning fireplace. There is an amazing bay window that frames the view perfectly and allows you to take in West and North views stretching as far as the Firth of Forth and the Edinburgh Rail Bridge. There are also Velux windows that bring in brightness from the East.
A truly magnificent home that will create the perfect atmosphere to both relax and entertain in.
