Scot House Move online estate agents offer to the market this magnificent ground floor flat that is located in the heart of the City's historic Georgian New Town and only a short walk to the city centre's business and shopping areas. A rare opportunity to purchase and early viewing is advised.

The flat is entered from a shared hallway and is part of a building that was renovated in 1987. To the front of the home is a quite outstanding sitting room with two large windows both having functioning shutters, particularly fine cornice and plasterwork, wood panelling and feature fireplace with over mantle mirror. To the rear of the home is the double bedroom with a large window, fully functioning shutters and a curved storage cupboard. The kitchen is also to the rear and in need of modernisation however, there may be scope to extend into the store room and part of the hall. Completing the internal accommodation is the traditional bathroom that comprises a three-piece suite with electric shower fitted over the bath.

Further benefits include gas central heating and original sash and case windows that have been professionally draught proofed.

For a modest fee owners have access to Moray Place gardens and a residents parking permit can be obtained allowing you to park directly outside the home.

Early viewing is a complete must.

Forres Street, located in the Moray Feu, within Edinburgh's World Heritage Site is positioned on the south side of the prestigious Moray Place, perhaps Edinburgh's most sought after New Town address. The handsome street is a fine example of Georgian architecture and benefits from having been blocked to traffic at Albyn Place. The property's perfect situation is within easy walking distance of the city centre and the financial district. The fashionable shops of George Street and the many coffee shops, restaurants, bars and independent shops of Stockbridge are effectively on its doorstep. Residents can apply for access to the superb Moray Place and Ainslie Place Private Gardens on payment of a modest annual fee.The open spaces of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Inverleith Park and the terraced gardens on the banks of the Water of Leith are close by. The New Town Nursery is situated on Forres Street while there are a number of excellent schools nearby including the Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Erskine Stuart's Melville Schools and St George's School for Girls.
