Situated within the peaceful Merchiston conservation area, 4/15 Gillsland Road is a spacious and modern, one-bedroom, ground floor retirement flat enjoying immaculate interiors and a prime location within an established retirement complex for 60s and over.
Reached by a secure shared entrance, the home’s front door opens into a welcoming hallway with a large cloak cupboard. To the right is the living/dining room, which is decorated in pale tones and with sleek click-wooden floors. A bay window with full-height glazing floods the space in natural light, framing beautiful views of the communal garden, whilst a modern electric fireplace sits at the focal point. Next door, the modern kitchen comes well-appointed with white-gloss cabinets and timber-toned worktops, housing appliances. The spacious double bedroom offers a built-in mirrored wardrobe, additional storage, and lovely views across the garden. Completing the accommodation is a modern three-piece shower room enveloped in attractive tiling. It benefits from underfloor heating, a WC suite, and an integrated radio that pipes through music from the kitchen. Double-glazed windows and electric storage heaters ensure year-round warmth. For added peace of mind, there is a 24-hour Careline alarm system with emergency pull cords, a part-time resident manager, and a guest room within the complex.
Externally, the landscaped communal garden offers a sweeping manicured lawn and colourful flower beds, creating a truly peaceful setting for socialising and relaxing in the sun. Private residents’ parking is also available.
The development is managed by Bield Housing Association for an approximate monthly fee of £100, which covers block buildings insurance, cleaning of shared areas, garden and ground maintenance, and the provision of a house manager and the 24-hour response system.
Merchiston is one of the most sought-after and prestigious places to live in Edinburgh, enjoying tree-lined streets, established gardens, and large villas. Lying southwest of the city centre, Merchiston offers a wide variety of cafés, restaurants, artisan coffee houses, bistros, independent shops, galleries, boutiques, a luxury cinema, theatres, and various supermarkets, including Waitrose and M&S. It offers a unique and independent atmosphere whilst being very close to the city centre, where further shopping, leisure, and cultural amenities can be enjoyed, from the world-class designer stores on George Street, to the fashionable high-street shops on Princes Street. The area is very well served by public transport, superb cycle paths, and walkways along the canal, the Water of Leith or in the many greenbelt areas.
