The property is an exceptionally stylish second floor flat conversion of a former Printworks within a stone’s throw of Edinburgh University Old Quad and George Square Campuses. Served by a lift, access to the building is protected by a video entryphone system and this very bright apartment is further protected by an intruder alarm. Internally, this architect designed property showcases an industrial chic with exposed pipe work and original brick walls. This is greatly enhanced by the extensive use of natural hardwood floors. Of particular note is the use of two electrically controlled slide aside doors which promote a remarkable feeling of light and space. The lounge has a sunny aspect and benefits from wall to wall and floor to ceiling windows. It affords ample space for dining and opens to a well fitted kitchen complete with a full range of appliances. Both double bedrooms have designer en-suite facilities. Year round comfort is ensured by a combination of efficient gas fired central heating, double glazing and good standards of thermal insulation. In all, this is an ideal City pied-a-terre handy for a wide variety of life enhancing amenities.
