Located beside the scenic Union Canal walkway in the popular central district of Polworth, this two-bedroom (plus a box room) third/top-floor tenement flat promises a stylish city home with many of the capital's attractions, main shopping areas, and Haymarket train station all within walking distance.
The appealing home is neutrally presented and retains much of its Victorian charm with airy high ceilings and original decorative features. Access to a lovely south-facing communal garden is included.
Reached via a secure communal stairwell, the front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall benefiting from built-in storage and durable oak-styled flooring, a handsome feature found throughout most of the home. Leading off the hall and extending the full depth of the property, with a sociable open-plan layout, is a flexible area for relaxation and dining, with an adjoining corner kitchen. The tasteful kitchen features classic sage-green cabinetry and a hardwearing natural wood worktop, framed by chic metro wall tiles. Integrated goods comprise a dishwasher, a fridge, an oven, and a gas hob with a chimney-style feature hood. A built-in utility cupboard discreetly houses a freestanding washing machine, and further incorporated storage is provided in the living area.
Also located in the home are two bedrooms, a double and a single, both enjoying generous proportions. The double room retains the elegant features of a ceiling rose and cornicing, with the latter also found in the single room, along with a traditional clothes pulley. Completing the accommodation on offer is a box room, ideal for extra storage, as a dressing room, or home study, and a bright contemporary bathroom. The neutrally-tiled bathroom is equipped with a WC-suite, a chrome towel radiator, and a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Externally, the flat offers communal access to a delightful south- facing rear garden, neatly laid to lawn. On-street parking in the vicinity falls under Controlled Zone S3.
