**Closing Date now set for Friday, 28th April 2017 at 11:00** Set within a B-listed Victorian townhouse on one of the West End's most revered crescents, this five-bedroom double upper property offers a stunning city home with breathtaking views across the capital's iconic skyline, Firth of Forth and Fife, and the Pentland Hills. Inside the property is the epitome of period grandeur, filled with priceless original features and splendid fireplaces. Stone steps flanked by traditional cast-iron railings lead up to the handsome double door main entrance (equipped with a secure entry phone system), which opens into the welcoming entrance vestibule and shared foyer. Floored in coveted parquet, the walls are lined with classic oak panelling, which is mirrored by intricate frieze moulding and cornicing above. Ascending the grand oak staircase to the light filled second floor, the front door opens into an impressive reception hall where soaring ceilings and natural light continue the bright and airy ambience. The vast drawing room enjoys a wonderful southeasterly aspect and open views as far as Edinburgh Castle and the Pentland Hills. Typically opulent proportions allow scope for a multitude of comfortable seating arrangements around a splendid fireplace, which is equipped with a custom designed electric fire. The elegant dining room boasts another attractive fireplace and lovely views, this time over private gardens and rooftops towards the Firth of Forth and Fife. The spacious, well-appointed dining kitchen offers extensive fitted storage and workspace, plus a range of integrated appliances. This leaves ample room for additional freestanding appliances, and a convivial dining area. Also on this level are a large three-piece bathroom with a shower over bath, as well as a cloakroom and a magnificent double bedroom. Upstairs are four further double bedrooms all of which enjoy fabulous, far reaching views and spectacular natural light. This floor also accommodates a versatile box room and a contemporary slate tiled shower room. The gas central heating system has been recently upgraded with a high efficiency combi boiler and new radiators. Situated in the heart of the West End of Edinburgh, the area forms part of the New Town Conservation Area and the Edinburgh World Heritage Site, and sits among superb examples of its historic architecture.
