Full description

This superbly presented, two-bedroom second-floor flat is located in the sought after
district of Corstorphine, approximately four miles from the heart city centre.

Sympathetically modernised throughout, this tenement flat retains, and beautifully emphasises, many of its traditional features, including stripped pine doors, cornicing, window surrounds and dado rails. Period charm is complemented by tasteful and immaculate interiors and large picture windows, creating a fabulously bright and welcoming home. Accessed via a secure entry phone system and a communal stairwell, this delightful flat opens into a spacious and welcoming hallway, with a pleasant, neutral palette. To the right of the hall is the airy and inviting lounge, which enjoys a large bay window with original panelled surround. Other eye-catching features include a handsome fireplace, with a gas fire, detailed cornicing and stripped floors. The room also benefits from attractive wall-mounted up-lights and a useful storage cupboard. Across the hallway is the spectacularly light dining kitchen, with lightly-toned wood effect flooring, contemporary stark white cabinets and a stunning south-facing picture window, which has a deep surround and lovely, far reaching views of the Pentland Hills. The room provides ample space for appliances, whilst a charming recessed dining area can easily accommodate a four-seater dining
table. A handy cupboard also provides further storage. Also located to the rear of the property, and enjoying a desirable south-facing aspect that takes in views of the Pentland Hills, is a sunny double bedroom, boasting an expansive window with characterful surround.

The second double bedroom benefits from two built-in storage cabinets and features a large window, again with an appealing period surround. Completing the accommodation is the bright bathroom, with contemporary monochrome décor and a pristine, all-white suite, including a WC-suite, a shower-over bath and a wall-mounted mirrored cabinet. Externally and to the rear of the property is a shared walled garden, established and well kept, with a lovely south-facing aspect. The flat also has access to ample, unrestricted on street-parking nearby and enjoys a wonderfully convenient location, with great transport links, with St Johns Road leading directly into Edinburgh, and out to the airport, city bypass and motorway network. Gas central heating throughout ensures optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. EPC Rating - C. Extras: All blinds, fitted light fittings, fridge freezer and washing machine are included in the sale.
