20 Rothesay Terrace is unique and extremely impressive ground and lower ground floor 4/5-bedroom apartment with a private parking space in the West End of Edinburgh. Under its current ownership, it has undergone a complete refurbishment by Hutton & Read, who specialise in historical building renovation, which has transformed it throughout.
The property is entered into a grand and welcoming entrance hallway, from which the ground floor accommodation is accessed. There is an imposing sitting room with oak parquet flooring and a unique circular window, a large study and two double bedrooms both with dressing rooms and en suite shower rooms. There are also a number of storage cupboards in the corridor leading to the 2nd double bedroom. From the ground floor, there is the option of two stair cases that lead to the lower ground level, either the light and open main stairs or the back stairs that lead to the downstairs bedrooms and cinema room.
At lower ground level, there is an amazing open plan kitchen/living room/dining room, two double bedrooms with a Jack and Jill en suite, a cinema room/5th bedroom, a mirrored gym room and a family bathroom. Of particular note is the kitchen which has been finished to a very high standard with granite work surfaces, custom cherry and walnut units, two zoned under floor heating, a Wolf double oven, gas hob, induction hob, grill, steamer and cooker hood. There are Sub-Zero integrated fridge drawers, freestanding fridge/freezer and wine cooler, a Fisher Paykel dishwasher, an integrated Bosch microwave and dishwasher.
The detail incorporated into the refurbishment of old and introduction of new is unrivalled with the use of the finest materials and technologies. Blending old and new, the property still retains a wealth of period features such as ornate cornice, fireplaces, wood burning stoves, wooden flooring and dado panelling while benefitting interior design by Malcolm Duffin and modern appliances such as the Sonos music system set up throughout the property. The cinema room has been sound proofed with 5.2dB surround sound, projector, screen and Ottimo remote controlled lighting.
Externally, there is a private parking space, a communal garden and the flat has access to the Rothesay Gardens.
