A secure entry system and a communal foyer lead to the flat’s front door. The home’s engaging theme of décor is revealed in its airy entrance hall with rich, oak-styled flooring, offset by a crisp, white backdrop, all enhanced by a traditional high ceiling with smooth coving detail. Accompanied by practical storage, the hall flows into a living room, where the immediate impression of space and light is heightened by a tall sash-and-case window enjoying a bright, south-facing aspect, and framing leafy garden views. Accompanied by an Edinburgh Press and built-in shelving, the reception room promises a comfortable setting for everyday living, with room for a seated dining area, if desired. Currently arranged as a home office, an adjoining room offers a fabulous, versatile space for creative configuration by the new owner.
Adjacent to the living room, a kitchen is well-appointed for the requirements of modern day living with ample cabinet storage, shelving and workspace, and a number of neatly integrated appliances, including an oven, a ceramic hob, and a extractor statement hood, alongside a freestanding fridge/freezer and a washing machine.
The flat’s two double bedrooms echo the airy dimensions and ceiling height of the living room, whilst thoughtfully frosted windows ensure a private, tranquil environment. Whilst the principal bedroom is set with handy, open shelving, both sleeping offer generous, versatile floorspace for freestanding bedroom and home office furnishings.
Finally, a contemporary bathroom houses a bathtub with a rainfall shower, a WC, a basin set into storage and a large, wall-mounted mirror, all enveloped in stylish wall and floor tiling. Gas central heating is found throughout.
Externally, residents enjoy a leafy, south-facing communal garden, with space for outdoor seating and a handy drying area. On-street parking in the area is conveniently unrestricted.
