Commanding stunning panoramic views across the Dean Valley towards the magnificent architecture of Edinburgh’s historic New Town, the well-proportioned, two-bedroom property forms part of an elegant Georgian sandstone terrace.

Situated on a tranquil, residential street overlooking the beautiful Dean Gardens in the city’s West End, the A-listed property offers spacious accommodation arranged over one level. It is presented to the market in need of modernisation and refurbishment but it offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a highly-desirable apartment in a prime city centre location.

The period property benefits from an abundance of charming original features including sash windows with working shutters, high ceilings and an original marble fireplace.

The property lies just a short walk from all the cosmopolitan delights and cultural attractions on offer in the city centre and the excellent range of local amenities and leafy parks in the charming neighbourhood of Stockbridge.

Description


10 Eton Terrace is situated on a quiet residential road with an elevated position overlooking Dean Gardens. The property is accessed via a flight of stone steps from the pavement that lead up to a classical dark-wood front door that opens into an entrance vestibule. An inner door with beautiful decorative stained glass opens into partially wood-panelled entrance hall with a black and white chequered tiled floor and an original marble fireplace.  A stone staircase with wrought-iron balustrade sweeps up to the first-floor property that enjoys plenty of natural light from the modern cupola above. The accommodation is as follows: 


• Hall. The spacious entrance hall features two walk-in deep utility/storage and cloakroom cupboards. Both provide access to extensive attic storage. A glass-panelled door from the hall leads in to the magnificent sitting room. 


• Dining-Sitting Room: The beautiful, high-ceilinged room is flooded with natural light from twin floor-to-ceiling windows with working shutters that offer spectacular views across Dean Gardens to the Georgian architecture of Moray Place on the opposing bank of the Dean Valley. There is an ornamental cast-iron balustrade that runs along the exterior of the house at this level. The generously sized room has plenty of space for both a seating and dining area and benefits from an impressive original marble fireplace that currently houses a gas fire. 


• Principal Bedroom: Accessed from the sitting room, this light-filled double room has wonderful views across the leafy Dean Gardens through a floor-to-ceiling window. This bright and airy room features two fitted wardrobes. 


• Second Bedroom: A further good-sized double bedroom enjoys lovely views of the private gardens and Georgian architecture at the rear of the property through a floor-to-ceiling sash window.  There is a built-in double wardrobe. 


• Bathroom: The partially-tiled bathroom includes a large walk-in shower, an integrated wash basin with storage cupboard below and a WC.


• Kitchen: Overlooking the leafy gardens at the rear of the property, the kitchen is in need of modernisation. It currently comprises an integrated double stainless-steel sink, washing machine, dish washer, electric oven, electric combi-grill and an induction hob. There are base and upper storage units as well as a clothes’ drying pulley. 

Situation:


10 Eton Terrace is situated in a highly-desirable residential area on the western fringes of the capital city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  
It is just a short walk from the property across the historic Dean Bridge to the city centre whilst directly across the road from the property is Dean Gardens, seven acres of beautiful grass and wooded areas featuring a children’s play park and picnic tables. Eton Terrace residents can apply for garden membership for an annual fee. 


Within easy reach is the Water of Leith walkway, a scenic riverside path that runs through the Dean Valley from where you are able to walk to Leith in one direction and to the Scottish Modern Art Gallery and beyond in the other.  It also links into the city’s extensive cycle network. 
There are plenty of recreational and leisure facilities in the locality including the members-only Dean Tennis & Squash Club (located just around the corner from the property), Edinburgh Sports Club and The Grange Cricket & Tennis Club.  


A short stroll leads down the cobbled Dean Park Crescent leads you to Stockbridge with its bustling village atmosphere, specialist independent shops, delis, cafes, restaurants and a weekly Sunday food market.  It is also well served by several small convenience supermarkets as well as a Waitrose in Comely Bank and several supermarkets in the nearby Craigleith Retail Park. Stockbridge borders Inverleith Park, where you’ll find community tennis courts and a children’s play park, and the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh. 


The property sits within the school catchment area for the highly regarded Flora Stevenson’s Primary School as well as Broughton High School. There are plenty of private schools available locally including Fettes College, The Edinburgh Academy, Erskine Stewarts’ Melville Schools (ESMS) and St George’s School for Girls. 

The property is just short walk away from the city’s main shopping thoroughfares as well as some of the Scottish capital’s world -class museums and historical attractions. It lies within easy reach of Haymarket Station and the excellent tram and bus links to Edinburgh International Airport. The City By-pass, the Queensferry Crossing and Scotland’s motorway network area are easily accessed via the nearby Queensferry Road.
