The dining room is located across the hall from the living room. With high ceilings, this room also appears exceptionally spacious and bright, as is apparent with most other rooms throughout the property. There is lots of room for a large table and several chairs, making it perfect for hosting dinner parties or entertaining guests in a formal setting. This room leads to the modern kitchen which is fully fitted with warm wood units and appliances.

There are three bedrooms in the property – the master bedroom is particularly attractive. Located at the front of the property, it boasts a lovely bay window ensuring it is filled with natural light. It also features an Edinburgh Press, neutral décor and ample space for furniture. The second bedroom overlooks the garden and is well-proportioned and bright. The property also features a traditional ‘maid’s room’ above the kitchen, accessed by stairs from the dining room, which could be used as a third bedroom or study. There is also a small box room to the rear of the property.

The accommodation is completed by a large shower room with a walk-in shower, which is located to the right of the hall opposite the living room, and a separate WC, which is positioned to the left of the entrance vestibule.


One of the highlights of the property is the large easily maintained garden located to the side of the villa. Providing an excellent place to enjoy sunny afternoons, this south-facing garden is surrounded by mature trees and colourful plants, offering a peaceful and secluded retreat in this home in the city. The flat further benefits from a shared paved driveway providing off-street parking, which leads to a private single garage.
