Part of a modern development, this one-bedroom ground-floor flat enjoys a convenient setting in sought-after Roseburn, just a short walk from Haymarket train station and the city centre's world- class amenities and cultural facilities. The home has a south-facing aspect for an abundance of daily sun and it is well-presented throughout in neutral tones. It has private residents' parking, and is comprised of a dual-aspect living room, a breakfasting kitchen, one double bedroom, and a three-piece bathroom. Altogether, the property is an ideal home for city professionals, first- time buyers, downsizers, and couples alike. Accessed via a secure telephone-entry system, the flat's front door opens into a welcoming hall with a built-in cupboard. The living room is at the end of the hall, enjoying a light neutral palette and a snug carpet for comfort. It is a good size space for comfy lounge furniture and it sees lots of natural light too, thanks to dual-aspect windows facing south and west. An open doorway leads through to the breakfasting kitchen, which is appointed with wood-toned cabinetry and granite-inspired worktops. It has space for a table for morning coffee and comes equipped with freestanding appliances (electric cooker, fridge, and washing machine). Meanwhile, the bedroom shares the same south-facing aspect as the living area and echoes its style as well. It is well-proportioned for bedside furniture and it enjoys an airy ambience. A bright three-piece bathroom, with a handheld shower, completes the accommodation. Double-glazed windows and electric heating ensure year-round comfort and efficiency. Outside, the development provides well-kept communal garden grounds and private residents' parking. Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, an electric cooker, a fridge, a washing machine, the bedroom wardrobes, drawers, and bed to be included in the sale. Rating - D. Roseburn, Edinburgh Established west of the city centre on the banks of the Water of Leith, part of Roseburn falls within the Coltbridge and Wester Coates conservation area and is cherished for its rich architectural landscape and protected areas of natural beauty. Whilst just a short walk from bustling Haymarket and the desirable West End, within minutes you can also be strolling along the tranquil Water of Leith Walkway, taking in sights such as idyllic Dean Village along the way. Vibrant Roseburn Terrace is lined with a charming selection of local shops and services, including an express supermarket and a choice of traditional pubs, cafes, and restaurants. More extensive shopping facilities are available at nearby Craigleith Retail Park, or indeed in the city centre. Residents enjoy an array of sport and fitness activities right on their doorstep, including the Murrayfield Lawn Tennis Club, several gyms and sport clubs, and, of course, Murrayfield Stadium is just around the corner. Roseburn is within the catchment area for excellent state schools and is also ideally situated for some of the capital's finest independent schools. Roseburn is exceptionally well connected and served by fantastic public transport links, including a comprehensive bus network and tram services between Edinburgh International Airport (calling at Haymarket station) and the city centre. Roseburn is also traversed by Route 1 of the National Cycling Network, which connects with various cycle and pedestrian paths across the city and beyond.
