Reached via a secure videophone-entry system and with a staircase and handy lift to all floors, the front door to this fourth floor apartment opens into a broad hall with rich textured oak flooring and attractive neutral décor. It conceals a useful storage cupboard and then leads into the impressive open-plan living and dining room. Here, a very generous footprint accommodates a fantastic range of comfortable furnishings, with plenty of space for a large family dining table. It offers an ideal setup for contemporary lifestyles and is fronted by oversized, southerly-facing windows that flood the area in natural light. A glazed door opens out onto the sheltered balcony. From the living space, an open archway leads into the breakfasting kitchen, which is fitted with a stylish combination of mix-and-match cabinetry: the base units in light timber tones and the wall-mounted ones in white with frosted glass fronts. The attractive design incorporates generous, down-lit worktops and a fantastic range of integrated appliances. It also includes a breakfast bar set below illuminated shelving. The kitchen is supplemented by a separate utility room, providing a discreet and quiet space for laundry.
Located throughout the apartment are three double bedrooms, which are all beautifully presented and generously proportioned, including modern built-in wardrobes to maximise floor space. The master bedroom further benefits from an additional storage cupboard (housing the boiler) and a luxurious en-suite shower room. Completing this exceptional home, the three-piece family bathroom with an overhead shower. The entire property is warmed by adjustable (wet) underfloor heating, with double glazed windows ensuring optimal comfort all year round.
Outside, the leafy green development is constructed around a landscaped central plaza for communal use. There is also a large common green for outdoor recreation besides the building, offering delightful views across the Firth of Forth. Allocated parking is provided in a secure underground carpark beneath the development.
