PF3, 166 Albert Street, Edinburgh EH7 5NA
Characterised by period proportions and an exclusively south-facing aspect, this two-bedroom ground- floor tenement flat represents a rare opportunity for first-time buyers and buy-to-let investors to create a contemporary home in the capital's sought-after Easter Road district.
The property now requires a degree of modernisation, however, represents an exciting blank canvass with tremendous scope for enhancement, from cosmetic upgrading to more extensive alterations, subject to obtaining planning and building consent. The traditional flat has retained an array of desirable original features, including panelled doors and classic window shutters. Access is permitted to shared rear garden/drying area and unrestricted on-street parking is available directly adjacent.
The tenement is accessed via a secure shared close with a rear door to the garden and welcoming you into the flat is a good-sized entrance hall. The open-plan kitchen/ living/dining room to the left is flooded with light from a pair of south-facing windows and offers a fantastic setting for everyday life and relaxed entertaining. The bijou kitchen is tucked into the far corner and offers ample fitted storage and workspace, plus an integrated electric hob, oven/grill and extractor hood. There is also an undercounter fridge and a washing machine. The remaining floorspace allows flexible scope for various lounge/dining configurations around a feature fire surround, which is flanked by an authentic Edinburgh Press. The property boasts two good-sized bedrooms, both of which have retained attractive window shutters and would lend themselves to various configurations to suit. Completing the accommodation is a three-piece shower room, which now requires modernisation. The property benefits from double-glazed windows and is heated by way of electric heaters.
Externally the flat enjoys access to a low-maintenance rear garden/drying area, as well as unrestricted on-street parking on Albert Street and in the vicinity.
