Morningside, Edinburgh Morningside is a fashionable and affluent suburb of Edinburgh that lies just southwest of the city centre. Enjoying the outdoors couldn't be easier, given the proximity of the lovely green areas of Braidburn Valley Park (awarded Scotland's first Green Flag for excellence in parks), Colinton Mains Park and Blackford Hill, which offers delightful walks and superb views across Edinburgh. Pentland Hills Regional Park is a short drive away and promises walking, biking, pony-trekking and skiing at Midlothian Snowsports Centre. For the active type, Craiglockhart Leisure Centre is nearby and hosts a gym, fitness classes and a tennis centre. For the golf enthusiast, there are a number of courses in the surrounding area, including Merchants of Edinburgh and Braid Hills. The property falls within the catchment area for Bruntsfield Primary School and St Peter's RC Primary School (adjacent on Falcon Road), followed by secondary education at Boroughmuir High School or St Thomas of Aquin's High School. With regular buses to and from the city centre and easy access to the City Bypass, commuting from here is fast and convenient. 41 (1F2) Falcon Gardens Set within a traditional Victorian tenement in highly-desirable Morningside, this first-floor flat has been beautifully modernised and finished to a high standard throughout. The property boasts two double bedrooms, a versatile box room, and stylish decor paired with lovingly- preserved period features, plus access to a well-kept shared garden. Morningside is home to a wealth of amenities and lies just over two miles from the heart of the capital. The flat is accessed via a well-maintained shared stairwell (with original tiles and terrazzo flooring) to the first floor, where a spacious hallway welcomes you inside and houses handy built-in storage. Giving the first glimpse of the tasteful interiors to follow, the hall is decorated in stylish grey hues enhanced by a plush fitted carpet, a picture rail and elegant cornicing. Leading off the hall and situated to the front of the property is an impressive living room with stunning southerly views to the Pentland Hills. Exuding a wonderfully light and airy ambience owing to a soaring ceiling (adorned with beautiful cornicing) and a large, west-facing bay window with a panelled surround, this generous reception area enjoys the same decor as the hall, enhanced by original pine flooring. At the focal point of the space is an attractive period-inspired fireplace, flanked by a glazed Edinburgh Press with hidden storage and display shelving. Returning back through the hall, you reach an equally appealing dining kitchen. Here, a modern Rangemaster cooker is accompanied by freestanding cabinets and an American-style fridge freezer, whilst an adjoining utility room houses fitted cabinetry, an integrated washing machine and an integrated dishwasher. The dining kitchen also incorporates a built-in cupboard. The flat accommodates two double bedrooms and a useful box room. The larger bedroom is styled in chic grey and fitted with a plush carpet for maximum comfort, whilst the smaller bedroom is decorated in crisp-white and retains its original pine flooring. The good-sized box room, accessible from both the hall and the living room, could be used as an office, a playroom or as excellent storage space. A contemporary, fully-tiled bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a bathtub with an overhead shower and a folding glazed screen, a basin set into storage, and a toilet. The home is heated by an efficient gas central heating system with heritage-inspired column radiators. Externally, the flat enjoys access to a well-kept, shared rear garden.
