Access to the front door and vestibule is via a short flight of steps and platt. The impressive ground floor hall, with its original tiled floor, is at the heart of the house and its fine stair case ascends to the second floor and frames the cupola, crowning the roof. The beautifully proportioned formal dining room, with twin three quarter height round headed windows to the front of the house, has ornate cornicing including a frieze. Directly behind it is the sitting room with two full height sash and case windows that overlook the garden to the rear of the house; it also boasts a curved apsidal wall. The accommodation on the ground floor is completed by a kitchen and shower room.
On the first floor, the drawing room, with twin full height windows and Victorian wrought iron balconettes, overlooks the Terrace with views to Leith; it retains its original cornice and rose and fire place. Sliding doors, to the rear of the room, reveal a large adjoining ante-room, with identical cornice, rose and panelling that is currently used as a bedroom; again, this room benefits from full height windows with balconettes that overlook the garden. There is a further smaller bedroom to the front of the house as well as a kitchen and bathroom.
The second floor has two large virtually identically sized double bedrooms, one to the front, the other to the back with an interconnecting room between them that can be accessed from the landing as well. There is a further smaller bedroom and a kitchen, bathroom and separate WC. The house is topped by an attic that has two naturally lit bedrooms and access to the roof. There are built-in storage cupboards on all floors and the majority of the windows have working shutters.
Extras: All fitted flooring, integrated appliances and window coverings are included in the sale.
