With stylish, modern interiors and an emphasis on light and space, this beautifully refurbished two-bedroom, first-floor flat with a private balcony, offers its new owners a city home to fall in love with. The charming flat enjoys an excellent location within walking distance of local amenities and with a quick and easy commute into the heart of the city centre.
Accessed via a secure main door and shared stairwell, the front door to the flat opens into a welcoming hall. To the left is a most-impressive living room: here, plush fitted carpets and crisp white décor are brought alive with colourful furnishings to create an elegant and refined reception room to relax and entertain in. A modern electric fireplace with a stylish mantelpiece creates a focal point and cosy atmosphere during the colder months. A lit alcove with a built-in cupboard at the bottom, adds stylish storage to the room. The dual-aspect room is brightly lit by a large window and a glazed door, which leads onto a lovely balcony, perfectly suited for alfresco dining. A modern shaker-style breakfasting kitchen sits at the front of the home, featuring mosaic splashback tiles, clotted cream coloured cabinets and timber-style worktops. Under unit lighting, in-built wine racks and Travertine stone tiling provide a neat finishing touch. Appliances include: an integrated gas hob and brand-new electric oven, an undercounter washing machine and an undercounter fridge with a freezer compartment. At the rear of the flat are two beautifully presented, spacious double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. An immaculate and generously proportioned four-piece bathroom with a separate quadrant shower enclosure completes this stunning home. Gas central heating (by way of a combi boiler) and double glazing throughout ensure comfort and efficiency all year round.
Outside, a large walk-in store cupboard, located at the front door, provides excellent further storage. The flat also benefits from a sunny communal garden with a drying green. There’s ample unrestricted on-street parking available on Ferry Road.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, window blinds, light fittings, a washing machine and undercounter fridge to be included in the sale.
