Secure entry gives access to a communal stairwell, which in turn leads to the main door and welcoming hall. Here, neutral walls enhance charming period features, including solid wood doors and natural wood floors, which flow throughout the flat. The living/dining room offers generous space for relaxing. Views through twin inset windows flood the room with natural light and soft toned walls highlight a detailed cornice. Bespoke open shelves, set either side of an inset hearth, provide decorative focal points. Located to the rear with beautiful views towards the Pentlands and local hills, the dining kitchen is fitted with Shaker-style base and wall mounted units, incorporating an integrated oven and hob. White doors and contrasting natural beech worktops are offset by a soft grey metro tiled splashback and fresh mint walls. The central dining area has room for a large table. There is a separate, discrete utility zone with sink, space for a washing machine and tall fridge freezer, whilst a deep cupboard and shallow press provide extra storage. Featuring open views to the front, the double bedroom has restful toned walls. The naturally lit bathroom is appointed with a bath with shower-over and WC-suite, enveloped by tongue and groove panelling, and grey metro tiles. Every aspect of this versatile living space has been thoughtfully utilised. Off the hall, one of two deep cupboards has been cleverly customised as a private study. A double sized box bedroom, lit via secondary light from the kitchen, offers a further cosy seating area with space for a bed and provides access to a large attic storage space.
