Boasting modern, stylish interiors, plus a private garden as well as access to a shared garden/drying green, and unrestricted on-street parking, 45/3 Balcarress Street offers a fantastic starter home for the professional couple, student or even those looking to downsize yet stay within a vibrant area.
A secure shared entrance leads to the front door, where a hall welcomes you inside and gives the first glimpse of the tasteful accommodation to follow. The practical tiled floor here flows towards a generous living and dining room on the left. Flooded with sunshine through a south-facing window, the living area offers excellent flexibility for various lounge furniture layouts and incorporates two built-in storage cupboards, whilst a large alcove offers the perfect space for a seated dining area. Conveniently connected to the reception room is a kitchen fitted with a selection of modern white wall and base cabinets, framed by spacious granite-styled worktops. The kitchen is replete with appliances. Across the hall, a good-sized double bedroom awaits. Sharing the reception room’s wonderfully sunny aspect, the sleeping area enjoys chic sage-green décor and is fitted with a plush carpet for optimum comfort. A large built-in wardrobe maximises floorspace for furniture and offers hidden storage. Finally, a stylish, modern shower room completes the accommodation on offer and comprises a double shower enclosure, a basin, a WC, and a chrome towel radiator. Gas central heating (with a boiler which is still under warranty) and double glazing ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
Externally, the flat is accompanied by a private, low-maintenance front garden, as well as access to a shared rear garden/drying area. Parking on Balcarres Street is conveniently unrestricted.
