Characterised by generous proportions, a wonderful southwesterly aspect and appealing interior design, this two-bedroom first-floor flat promises a delightful home for first-time buyers, young families and downsizers in desirable Morningside.
The property has undergone extensive renovation in recent years, including upgraded electrics, new carpets, fresh décor and a contemporary kitchen. In addition to a private, suntrap balcony with delightful views, the flat also enjoys use of landscaped shared gardens to the front and rear.
Just around the corner from bustling Morningside Road, the apartment building is accessed via a secure shared foyer with stairs and a lift to the upper floors. On the first floor the front door opens into a long hall, and immediately on the right you catch a glimpse of the impressive kitchen. Inspired by mid-century design, with clean lines and block colours, the room has been cleverly designed to incorporate outstanding fitted storage, plus plenty of practical workspace. The green-gloss cabinets and oak worktops (paired with gleaming subway tiles) also house a range of integrated AEG appliances. A substantial cupboard, whose doors are painted in retro mustard and feature leather handles, provides excellent hidden storage for household appliances and more. At the end of the hall on the left is the large, southwest-facing living/dining room, which allows access to the private balcony. Bathed in afternoon and evening sun, the sheltered balcony provides the perfect setting for relaxing and entertaining, or an ideal spot for a herb garden.
The well-proportioned master bedroom offers flexible floorspace for an assortment of furniture, and is supplemented with triple built-in wardrobes. The generous second bedroom looks onto the private balcony and would lend itself to various uses to suit. Completing the accommodation is a teal-painted shower room comprising a shower compartment with a Mira electric shower, a pedestal basin and a WC. The flat benefits from double-glazed windows and is heated by a combination of new storage heaters and electric radiators. Priority parking (B2) is available directly adjacent by way of residents’ permit. The development is managed by Charles White.
