SOLD - SUBJECT TO CONCLUSION OF MISSIVES
Enjoying wonderfully bright and spacious living areas, and attractive décor accompanied by original features, is this traditional first-floor two-bedroom flat in popular Shandon. The flat lies within strolling distance of fantastic local amenities, as well as being just over two miles from the city centre and next to the scenic Union Canal, and would make the perfect city home or an investment property.
Approached via a secure shared stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with handy built-in storage. To the left of the hall lies an impressive living room. Exuding a wonderfully light and airy ambience owing to its soaring high ceiling and southerly-facing bay window flooding the room with natural light, this elegant reception room promises fantastic flexibility for various furniture configurations. The room hosts a selection of lovingly-retained period features: such as detailed cornicing, a picture rail, deep skirting boards, an Edinburgh Press and a panelled window surround. At the focal point of the space is a richly-toned wood and tiled fireplace. Accessed from both the living room and the hall is a handy box room which could lend itself to a variety of uses, such as a study, a reading room, or as storage space. At the opposite end of the hall, the generous kitchen accommodates space for a sociable dining area and is fitted with a selection of cream-coloured cabinets accompanied by spacious worktops and neutral splashback tiling. Additionally, the kitchen features built in and freestanding appliances. An adjoining utility room houses a handy clothes pulley and offers space and plumbing for an appliance.
The flat incorporates two double bedrooms; the larger bedroom is presented with warmly-toned décor framed by intricate cornicing and handsome pine flooring and enjoys a sunny aspect. The remaining bedroom enjoys attractive pastel décor enhanced by classic cornicing and is carpeted for optimum comfort. Finally, a contemporary bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, a basin set into storage, and a toilet. Gas central heating, powered by a boiler fitted just over three years ago and serviced annually, and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. Outside, the flat enjoys access to a well-kept rear garden, whilst unrestricted on-street parking can be found on Ashley Terrace.
Lying close to the city centre (approximately a 20-minute walk away), the popular residential district of Shandon is characterised by its leafy streets, appealing traditional tenements and open green spaces. Steeped in history, Shandon is home to a conservation area. There is a range of local amenities on offer, with more extensive shopping (including a Sainsbury’s superstore) in neighbouring Gorgie. Schooling is well catered for from nursery to senior level and a number of Edinburgh’s prestigious private schools are nearby. HOME REPORT £325,000. EPC BAND:C
