Situated in sought-after Duddingston, on the fringes of the scenic Holyrood Park, this two-bedroom second-floor flat enjoys a prime suburban location, whilst offering outstanding potential for renovation and improvement. Set within a development boasting pleasant communal gardens, the flat is wonderfully light and airy and enjoys its own private balcony. Requiring enhancement and refurbishment throughout, the property presents an excellent opportunity for its new owners to create a home perfectly suited to their own preferences in décor and style. Accessed via communal stairwell, the flat opens into a bright hallway, housing a handy cloakroom cupboard and leading through to a generous living room. Enjoying access onto a private balcony overlooking the development’s attractive gardens, and featuring a freestanding electric fire and surround, this well-proportioned reception area offers ample room for lounge furniture, and if desired, a seated dining area. Neighbouring the living room and lit by a large window with leafy views, is a good-sized kitchen, in need of upgrading but presenting a great space in which to fit a kitchen designed around one’s own requirements. Excellent pantry storage is provided with three built-in store cupboards. Also incorporated into the flat is a generous south-facing bedroom, with lovely garden views, a further double bedroom (with built-in storage) and a bright bathroom, currently fitted with a WC-suite and a bathtub (with a shower attachment), but all in need of replacing. The flat benefits from double-glazing and access to unrestricted on-street parking within the local vicinity.
