Light-filled contemporary interiors, communal gardens and private residents' parking
Forming part of an attractive modern development within a leafy residential area of popular Saughton, this freshly-decorated two- bedroom, first-floor flat boasts light-filled contemporary interiors and is accompanied by well-maintained communal gardens and private residents' parking. Close to local amenities and enjoying proximity to the city centre, Heriot Watt and Napier universities, and first-class commuter links, with the tram line nearby and a bus stop on the doorstep, this desirable city home represents an ideal proposition for first-time buyers, professionals, young families and rental investors alike.
Accessed via a secure shared entrance and a stairwell to the first floor, the flat's front door opens into a bright entrance hallway with excellent storage. Accompanied by the fresh, neutral décor and comfortable carpeting prominent throughout, the hall flows towards a spacious, corner-set reception room. Flooded with south-easterly sun light from dual aspect windows framing leafy open views, the room's sociable layout promises versatile space for comfortable lounge furniture as well as a seated dining area, and offers the perfect design for the contemporary lifestyle. Supplementing the reception area, and conveniently adjoining, a kitchen, with elevated open views, is fitted with modern timber-effect flooring and cabinetry. Neutrally-toned splashback tiling and granite-inspired worktops are stylish enhancements and the sunny, functional space is further equipped with an integrated oven, a ceramic hob and an overhead extractor fan, along with a freestanding fridge/freezer and a washing machine. Also located in the flat are two airy double bedrooms. In both of the well- proportioned sleeping areas, fitted mirrored wardrobes maximise floorspace for freestanding bedroom furnishings, whilst the understated neutral décor, favoured throughout the flat, provides a delightful blank canvas for future styling and design. Completing the appealing accommodation, a bright, good-sized bathroom comes complete with a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a WC and a pedestal sink. Electric heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and warmth.
Externally, the development sits within well-maintained leafy communal gardens and residents enjoy access to a private carpark.
Extras: Included in the sale are all fitted floor coverings, window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, the freestanding fridge/freezer and the washing machine. NB. All appliances are sold as seen although we believe them to be in working order.
Tucked between the popular residential areas of Murrayfield and Balgreen, Saughton enjoys a tranquil yet central location to the west of the city centre and is popular with young professionals and families owing to its varied housing stock, convenient transport links and local amenities. Residents benefit from local shops and services both here and in neighbouring Balgreen, including a Scotmid store, a post office, and a library; these are supplemented with two large supermarkets in nearby Gorgie. For a traditional high-street shopping experience, St John's Road is just a few minutes' drive along Corstorphine Road and is lined with a diverse blend of independent shops and high-street retailers. Saughton is traversed by the Water of Leith, so residents have direct access to the leafy Water of Leith Walkway perfect for relaxed strolls or as a safe walking or cycling route into the heart of the capital. Saughtonhall Park, with its rose garden, skate park and sports complex, promises a fantastic space for outdoor activities and recreation to suit all ages and abilities. The property falls within the catchment area for Broomhouse Primary School and Forrester High School, and is also ideally placed for a choice of independent schooling and childcare options, as well as Heriot Watt and Napier Universities.
