Accessed through a secure entry system, with a well-maintained common entrance hall and with lift access to the fifth floor, the hall opens into the large sitting room from where a glazed door leads into the kitchen. There are two bedrooms off the hallway, along with the bathroom.
This bright fifth floor flat features the original narrow-board timber flooring throughout the hallway, living room, and kitchen, as well as the original windows, reflecting the distinctive character of this Art Deco building. The hallway sets the tone for this interior with its neutral décor, and there are built-in storage cupboards on the left as you enter. The large sitting room has a bright east-facing orientation. A glazed door opens into the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of wood-effect wall and floor cabinets, with a freestanding cooker, fridge, and freezer. There is space in the kitchen for a dining table.
Both the bedrooms also face east, and the master bedroom has built-in wardrobes with additional storage above. The bathroom includes a bath with shower over and has neutral wall and floor tiling. There is electric heating throughout. The property also has access to well-maintained communal gardens, and there is residents’ parking to the front of Learmonth Court as well as parking for permit holders on neighbouring streets.
