9/1 BONNINGTON TERRACE, TRINITY, EDINBURGH

This ground floor flat forms part of a handsome terrace of period properties, and has a garden to the front and a south-west facing courtyard garden to the rear. The master bedroom sits to the front of the property, with a bathroom and box room (currently a nursery) in the middle of the floor plan, and with the sitting room and second double bedroom to the rear. The kitchen and dining room are within an extended section of the property at the very rear, with French doors opening from the dining area into the courtyard garden. A second set of French doors also leads outside from the rear bedroom.

Why: Years ago I visited a property on Bonnington Terrace - a house that had been opened up and modernized with beautiful results. That property has always stuck in my mind, not just for the house itself but for the street, as Bonnington Terrace is one of those addresses that you can’t help but admire.

Number 9/1 was in need of an overhaul when the current owners bought it, and they gutted and renovated the flat to create today’s very appealing interior. The sitting room, kitchen and dining room are orientated towards the rear garden, and create a lovely indoor-outdoor flow. From the charming styling of the kids’ rooms to the eclectic aesthetic evident in the sitting room, it’s clear that the owners have a keen eye for detail, and the result is a home filled with personal touches - and personality.

And there are great fittings and finishes throughout, including the freestanding kitchen cabinets and the gas fired stove in the sitting room, combined with period detailing such as the panelled timber doors and plaster cornice work. This is one stylish flat, and on one of Edinburgh’s most desirable terraces.
