An elegant third-floor apartment amidst an ideal range of locales, including the principal streets of the New Town and the natural haven of George V Park.
Royal Crescent 2 is a bright and tasteful third-floor apartment, perfectly situated beside the bustling core of the New Town and the idyllic walking spaces of King George V Park (which also has a large play area) and Dean Village. The apartment is also very close to Edinburgh’s renowned Royal Botanic Gardens. Access to the property is via a communal stairwell, and an attractive wire frame clock with gold hands greets you upon entering the central hallway.
First on your right is the master bedroom with double wardrobe, leather stool and scripted canvas armchair opposite the King-size bed. Other endearing details include a mesmerizing abstract painting and a decorative black fireplace with a mirror atop. A dresser with trifold mirror sits under the window looking out across Edinburgh to the Firth of Forth in the distance.
The sitting room is second off the right and has a dining table with seating for four, beside the window which offers similar views as from the master bedroom. A flat screen HD TV with integrated DVD player is mounted on the wall opposite the room’s two sofas, and the space is classily decorated with another black fireplace, inlaid with mosaic detailing, a modern, understated chandelier suspended from a ceiling cornice, and two vibrant abstract paintings. Much of the décor, including the rug in earthy tones and the cushions, is new, reinforcing the fresh impression conferred by the influx of light.
The modern, pristine kitchen is just off-centre from the hallway, and features all the essential utensils and amenities, including an integrated fridge-freezer and dishwasher. It has a nice selection of glass, porcelain, and steel kitchenware, and also a radio. A ravishing quayside painting hangs just inside.
The motif of the black fireplace continues in the elegant twin room, where a gradated opposing wall envelops the two beds, flanked by a chest of drawers, double wardrobe, cream velvet wingback armchair and large mottled gold mirror. The window beside the chair overlooks the neighbouring gardens.
The apartment’s compact and crisp bathroom has a combi-shower over the fitted, deep bath and a heated towel rail. A mirror with dual integrated lights leads to the frosted glass windows above the toilet at the farthermost end, while just inside the room is a closet housing the apartment’s boiler. An additional closet beside the bathroom contains the washing machine, an iron and ironing board.
Royal Crescent 2 is a beautiful and refined apartment in a pleasant area of the city, right next to a natural haven and yet close to the kernel of the New Town.
