13 Claremont Crescent comprises a substantial and handsome Georgian townhouse situated at the centre of an attractive and tranquil residential crescent yet within a short walk of Edinburgh's thriving city centre. The property today is most attractively presented and was subject to a complete and detailed programme of restoration in 2014. The generous main door family accommodation of about 346sq.m (3725sq.ft) is laid out over three levels and combines a contemporary, modern lifestyle cleverly blending with the many fine period features retained within the property. Such features include an elegant staircase, window shutters, Doric columns, cornice work, ornamental wrought iron balconies and cupola. The large sash and case windows throughout the house ensure excellent levels of natural light and a southerly front elevation gives attractive views over Claremont Crescent private gardens.
The property is entered via a substantial reception hallway with feature columns, elegant original staircase and a newly installed modern bathroom. There is an informal sitting room or dining room with fireplace with a set of large double doors leading through to the spacious, state-of-the-art kitchen breakfast room and utility room beyond. The kitchen itself is of the highest quality and design acting naturally as a focal point to the overall accommodation. To the front on the first floor there is a grand, formal L-shaped drawing room with three, full length, south facing sash and case windows and an attractive fireplace with a coal effect gas fire whilst to the rear there is a most impressive master bedroom of magnificent proportions with a modern en suite bathroom leading through to a fully fitted dressing room. On the second floor there are three further large double bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and one with an en suite bathroom. Above the stairwell a magnificent, traditional cupola floods the stairwell with natural light.
The kitchen and bathrooms are designed by Colin Wong, UK kitchen and bathroom designer of the year 2014. The kitchen has a full range of Hacker kitchen units with integrated Neff appliances including oven, oven/microwave, warming plate, induction hob, extractor, wine cooler, fridge/freezer and instant boiling water tap. In addition there are ample Silestone work tops with mirror splash backs and a large island unit with pull out drawers, breakfast bar and pop up power sockets. The bathrooms and shower rooms comprise Vitra sanitary ware with Hudson and Reed taps and designer fittings and shower screens. In addition there is under floor heating in all bathrooms.
Another main feature of this exceptionally well presented house is the wide board 21mm thick engineered oak flooring to the reception hall, sitting room, kitchen, utility room and 1st floor drawing room and the high quality fitted carpets to all four bedrooms, landings and stair. The decor is Farrow & Ball which gives a superb finish and enhances the natural light throughout the house.
