To the rear of the ground level, the property offers a large open plan dining, kitchen and sitting area perfect for entertaining. With views of the stunning private garden, this room enjoys vast amounts of sunlight, original features, and beautiful wooden flooring. The modern kitchen features soft close doors and fully integrated Bosch appliances including a dishwasher, induction hob, electric oven, and a fitted fridge/freezer. Additionally, on the ground level is a useful cloak room situated across from the front door which is great for jackets, shoes and also houses a newly fitted monitored alarm system.
On the lower ground level there are three large double bedrooms, one of which the current owner uses as a garden room. One of the bedrooms enjoys large fitted wardrobes with the principle bedroom further benefiting from a beautiful en-suite bathroom and direct access to the garden as well as there being access off the hallway. There is a separate study room on this level, a utility room, a family bathroom, and a great amount of storage.
To the rear of the property there is a south/west facing private garden. The current owner has created a magnificent patio area with built in outdoor heaters and stunning garden lighting meaning it can be used year round. The garden itself is well manicured and is a real suntrap providing sunshine from around 11am. The garden is ideal for entertaining and enjoying the summer sun. To the front of the property is a spacious courtyard and three cellars, one of which has been dry lined with light and power.
Furthermore, 8/1 Belgrave Place benefits from a recently fitted, efficient and low maintenance boiler 8 years remaining on the warranty, a Nest thermostat and new TRVs on radiators. The electrics within the property are all recently upgraded with a certified Domestic Installation Certificate. The roof has recently been maintained and all external drains have been cleared. The property has been freshly painted throughout and finished to a beautiful standard making it move in ready. The property also includes a large, private storage cupboard accessed from the communal stairway.
Living on Belgrave Place also offers the opportunity to use the magnificent Belgrave Crescent Gardens, widely considered some of the best private gardens in Edinburgh. The privately owned gardens offer 7 acres of well-maintained lawns, a children’s play area and connecting gates leading to The Dean Valley and Stockbridge.
Located in one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after residential areas, Belgrave Place is close to the Dean Bridge and within easy reach of Princes Street and the West End. The immediate locality is characterised by superb Victorian architecture and delightful gardens – arguably the finest in Edinburgh – which exemplify the classic style of this era.
The Royal Botanic Gardens, Inverleith Park, the Water of Leith walkway and Modern Art Galleries are all located nearby.
Local shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques are all in fashionable Stockbridge nearby. Princes Street, The West End and the historic New Town are host to some of the City’s finest eateries, bars and shops. All are within half a mile of the property.
Waverley and Haymarket railway stations are also readily accessible as are several major bus and tram routes into town. The City bypass, Edinburgh International Airport, the Forth Road Bridge and Scotland’s motorway networks are all accessed via nearby Queensferry Road.
Many of Edinburgh’s renowned private schools are also within the vicinity, including The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Stewart’s Melville College, Mary Erskine School and St George’s School for Girls.
