Benefiting from excellent transport links, proximity to the city centre and within walking distance of fabulous local amenities, 79/4 Ashley Terrace represents an ideal proposition for city professionals and rental investors alike.
Approached via a secure entry system and shared stairwell to the second floor, the flat’s front door opens into a spacious entrance hall discreetly housing useful built-in storage. On your left, you step into an elegantly-proportioned living room, framed by a south-westerly facing bay window and enhanced by stripped pine flooring and a lofty ceiling with intricate cornicing. Brimming with character, the room is arranged around a coal-effect fire set into a traditional surround and flanked by a classic Edinburgh Press. At the opposite end of the hall and incorporating the ideal space for meals, socialising or entertaining, the kitchen accommodates space for both comfortable seating and a large dining table and chairs and is fitted with a range of modern wood-effect cabinets accompanied by spacious granite-inspired worktops, metro-tiled splashbacks, and a range of appliances. An adjoining utility room has space for a fridge/freezer and washing machine.
The flat incorporates two double bedrooms. Both bedrooms are enhanced by classical coving, recessed wood-panelled windows, tasteful décor and plush carpeting. The larger bedroom enjoys a sunny aspect and a particularly generous footprint, incorporating space for a study area. The remaining bedroom benefits from a tranquil rear garden view. A box room represents a good-sized versatile space for handy storage. Finally, a classically-styled bathroom completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a traditional three-piece suite including a shower-over-bath and vanity storage with a basin inset. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure comfort and efficiency all year round.
Externally, the flat enjoys access to a generous, shared rear garden, whilst unrestricted on-street parking can be found on Ashley Terrace.
