Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold property with Thorntons Property Services

Set on the fourth/top floor of a popular retirement in highly- desirable Inverleith, this generous flat enjoys two double bedrooms, sunny and spacious living areas, wonderful views of Arthur's Seat, and a modern kitchen and bathroom, plus access to a shared lounge, library and laundry, guest facilities, well- maintained communal gardens, and an allocated undercover parking space. Further facilities in the development include a resident manager and a Careline alarm system.
A secure shared entrance and a lift (or stairs) takes you to the fourth/top floor, where a hallway welcomes you in to the flat. On your left, you step into a wonderfully bright and spacious reception room. Occupying a generous footprint which allows for a wealth of lounge and dining furniture layouts, the room is fitted with a plush carpet and a southeast-facing picture window floods the space with sunny natural light and frames wonderful views of the iconic Arthur's Seat. The room is supplemented by a built-in storage cupboard. Convenient for everyday life and entertaining alike, the living room is connected to a kitchen, which shares the same sunny aspect and lovely views. The kitchen is well-equipped with a wide range of modern wood-styled cabinets framed by downlit granite-inspired worktops and attractive splashback tiling. Complementing the modern finish, a number of appliances are neatly integrated: namely an eye-level oven, microwave and grill, a sleek induction hob paired with an extractor hood, a fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher. A breakfast bar set next to the window creates a lovely setting for morning coffee and socialising while cooking. Across the hall, two generously-proportioned double bedrooms await. Fitted with the same comfortable carpets as the reception room, the sleeping areas are both accompanied by large, mirrored built-in wardrobes, maximising floorspace for freestanding bedroom furniture. The flat also benefits from a very large attic space which, with the correct permissions, offers potential for future development. Finally, a stylish, contemporary shower room completes the accommodation on offer. Set against an attractive backdrop of earthy-toned wall and floor tiling is a large accessible shower enclosure, a basin set into storage, a WC, a mirrored, wall-mounted vanity cabinet, and a chrome towel radiator. The flat is heated by an electric heating system and benefits from double-glazed windows. Externally, the development is accompanied by beautifully-maintained shared gardens and the flat comes with an allocated undercover parking space.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated appliances to be included in the sale.
Factor: The development is managed by FirstPort Property Services for an approximate annual fee of £2,650, which is paid bi-annually.
