With wonderful views to Calton Hill & New St Andrews House, this is a FIRST FLOOR FLAT right in the very heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, just a few meters off The Royal Mile. All city centre attractions are literally on the doorstep and accordingly, property in this location is highly sought after. Hall; Livingroom; 2 Bedrooms, Kitchen & Bathroom. Gas central heating; Lovely Shared garden to rear; Residents Zone Parking Wow! It's not often such central flats of this stature are available. Jeffrey Street runs northward off the Royal Mile at the junction of the High Street, Cannongate & St Mary's Street. This property is on the west-most side of the street which has shops and restaurants on the ground floor. There are little outlets catering for everyday needs within walking distance, whilst slightly further, a more comprehensive selection including supermarkets in bustling Nicolson Street. Buses are regular from either the High Street or down in "neighbouring" Princes Street or North Bridge. Residents' also enjoy the close proximity of open space, whether that be Princes Street Gardens or Holyrood Park ( some 10 minutes walk to the south. The property is on the first floor of a traditional stone-built tenement in good condition. The view from the sitting room is "world class" looking up over Waverley Rail Station to the art deco, New St Andrews House with the magnificent Calton Hill on the horizon…very special. Indeed, the outlook to the rear is very Old Town urban yet a modern twist with glimpses of contemporary sneaking in. Once, a fairly typical Edinburgh three apartment layout, it now has a central, decent sized, kitchen which has resulted in two bedrooms. It works very well and should appeal as a pied a terre, a potentially highly successful letting investment or simply owner-occupiers looking to live right in the midst of the city. The windows are period style sash & case, in good condition and there is gas fired central heating. The flat would benefit from fresh decor but often that is what potential buyers look for.
