Forming part of an established residential development in popular Duddingston, this two-bedroom, first-floor flat enjoys well-proportioned interiors, versatile reception space, a private rear garden, and access to unrestricted on-street parking. The property will be sold with sitting tenant.
Approached via a communal foyer and a stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into an entrance vestibule leading directly into the airy, light-filled living accommodation. Enhanced by a backdrop of classic neutral decor and understated grey carpeting, the spacious, versatile reception room features a stylish glass-block wall panel and promises a relaxing, contemporary setting for everyday living, with space for a sociable seated dining area if desired. An inner hallway leads to a sunny kitchen, appointed with a range of modern, wood-styled cabinetry, contrasted with granite-inspired worktops and on-trend metro-tiled splashbacks. A number of appliances are neatly incorporated within the design, including a wide range cooker, a statement extractor hood, a dishwasher, a fridge, a freezer, and a washing machine. Peacefully located at the other end of the hall, two well-proportioned double bedrooms are supplemented by built-in wardrobes. The principal bedroom is styled with a striking feature wall and sleek, timber-effect flooring, whilst the remaining sleeping area enjoys neutral, soft-toned décor and cosy carpeting. Finally, a four-piece bathroom features a freestanding, double-ended, roll-top, claw-foot bathtub, a glazed shower cubicle, a WC, and a pedestal sink. Double glazing and gas central heating are found throughout.
Nestled at the foot of majestic Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags, Duddingston offers a unique village setting, yet is just over two miles east of the city centre. With the vast open spaces of Holyrood Park and Duddingston Loch to the west, and the golden sands of Portobello Beach to the east, residents have some of the capital’s most outstanding natural landscapes and views right on their doorstep. And of course there is no shortage of outdoor pursuits, from walking, cycling and hiking in Holyrood Park, to a round of golf at Duddingston Golf Club. The area is served by fantastic local services and amenities, particularly on nearby Portobello High Street, which is lined with an array of traditional shops and business, plus a handful of thriving cafes, pubs and restaurants. Popular with families looking for a more relaxed lifestyle (without leaving the city limits), Duddingston is within the catchment area for excellent local schools, and its close proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass and the A1 allows swift and convenient travel across the city and further afield. Nearby Brunstane train station and several bus routes also provide comprehensive public transport links, day and night.
