Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JA
Offers Over £295,000
Unique and charming 1 bedroom detached cottage with patio garden
This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire a charming traditional detached cottage hidden away in a secluded courtyard behind the tenements of Edinburgh's historic Grassmarket. The property benefits from a private patio garden as well as the shared courtyard garden and beautifully presented, stylish accommodation that is bright and well proportioned throughout. The current owner has been granted planning permission to extend the cottage to create a second bedroom and en-suite so it also offers superb potential.
Access to The Signal House: after entering via the communal main door there are two external staircases -the one to the left leads solely to The Signal House, and so is not required to be shared by other residents in the tenement block.
The Grassmarket lies close to Edinburgh Castle, an area that is steeped in history with stunning architecture and renowned museums and national art galleries. The Grassmarket is host to many fine bars and restaurants and offers a unique way of life in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. The main shopping and commercial thoroughfares of Princes Street and George Street are within easy walking distance and include major high street retailers, fine restaurants, fashionable bars and boutiques. The location is also very convenient for Edinburgh's financial sector in and around Lothian Road, Edinburgh University and The Edinburgh College of Art is also nearby. A wide selection of bus services is available nearby giving access to most areas of the City. For commuters, Waverley Station is a short walk away.
To the front of the property is a private patio garden and there is a further area of shared garden. There is also a secure communal bike store.
All fitted carpets, curtains, curtain poles/rails, blinds, light fittings, hob, oven, extractor hood, fridge and a washing machine are included in the sale price. All items of furniture are available by separate negotiation.
