74 Spylaw Road is an exceptional and impressive 3-bedroom main door ground floor apartment in Merchiston. The apartment is within a large 'B' listed house built in circa 1820 and then converted into luxury apartments in 2006. The accommodation is beautifully proportioned and immaculately presented throughout, finished to a high specification while retaining fine period detail from the Victorian era. Of particular note is the original drawing room which has been converted into a stunning 30ft open plan living space comprising kitchen/ sitting room and dining room. The kitchen has been fitted with top end Neff appliances including integrated washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave/oven, with two warming drawers and a coffee machine. The kitchen is split from the open plan drawing room/dining room by a large breakfast bar. It has been finished in high quality dark granite with solid wood doors. Huge floor to ceiling windows let in lots of natural light with one that opens out onto the south west facing terrace, perfect for evening drinks to catch the last of the sun. Solid wood floors flow throughout the property into all the rooms. The large master bedroom with design touches such as Zoffany wallpaper has good storage and an en suite shower room. The property further benefits from a large second bedroom and a smaller third bedroom or study. A family bathroom and WC have been fitted in a contemporary style and add a luxurious feel to the property. There are also a number of good storage cupboards within the property.
