This is a SECOND FLOOR FLAT (TOP), part of the lovely tree-lined "Boulevard" of Northfield Broadway. It is a popular location for first-time buyers and investors looking to acquire a property that offers a "lot of house" for the money. Tastefully presented and modernised, offering good sized accommodation a lovely aspect over landscaped gardens to the front and Arthur's Seat to the rear, there's lots to like about this property. Hall, Lounge; Kitchen/Breakfastroom; 2 Double Bedrooms & Bathroom. Gas Central Heating; Double Glazing; Shared Garden & Free on-street parking Northfield Broadway links Piersfield with Willowbrae (the A1) only 3 miles east of Edinburgh's city centre. The area comprises an eclectic mix of property types, from the "high-end" traditional bungalows, to the 60's & 70' Miller houses, the Ex-council housing, to contemporary developments. This side of town does offer some excellent local amenities: shopping, whether within a short walk to Morrisons supermarket and local "corner shops" or just to the east in Portobello, the choice is exceptional; as are the bus routes of which there are many passing either into town or down to East Lothian. Residents are also close to a selection of parks including the lovely walks on and around Arthur Seat. Schooling is also handy with a broad selection for both primary (Royal High primary only a few mins' walk) and the new Portobello High School. For motorists, the journey to the by-pass is only a five minutes and that will lead on to the main road network. Dating from circa 1930's, this is a very well built stone-fronted SECOND FLOOR FLAT within a block of only six that are former Local Authority built properties. The bright, well- proportioned accommodation has been tastefully modernised and provides an ideal home for a variety of potential buyers. It could for example, attract a young family looking to get "on the home ownership ladder" or indeed an investor because the yield, at this price, is an attractive prospect. The property is presented in move-in condition with a recently fitted new bathroom and a lovely fitted kitchen, big enough to eat in with integrated appliances. Storage is also very good
