Part of a traditional tenement building in the heart of popular Gorgie, close to excellent amenities, public parks, and transport links, this spacious, two-bedroom, ground-floor flat represents an ideal home for commuting professionals, first-time buyers, downsizers, and young families. With its generously proportioned rooms and prime location in easy reach of the city centre, it is also a potentially lucrative buy-to-let investment opportunity.
The property requires a modernising touch, yet its outstanding potential for contemporary appeal is self-evident.
Upon entering the flat, accessed via a secure telephone-entry system and communal entrance, you step into a central hall that is defined by neutral décor and a wood-textured floor (both of which are found predominantly throughout). On the left is the living/dining room, spanning the entire depth of the property to provide a generous footprint for comfortable lounge furniture, as well as a good-size dining nook for a table and chairs. The living area also features a traditional press cupboard for on-hand storage, whilst the dining nook has fitted shelves for books and display items. The entire footprint is brightly illuminated by a window that frames peaceful views over the shared garden. Sat adjacent is an L-shaped kitchen, fitted with base and wall cabinets and plenty of workspace, housing room for freestanding appliances. With a modernising update, the kitchen could easily be transformed into a contemporary feature of the home. Meanwhile, a spacious double bedroom and a large single bedroom are situated on the opposite side of the hall, both offering leafy views over the garden and well-proportioned footprints for a choice of bedside furnishings. If desired, the single bedroom could make a fantastic home office or study, creating an ideal arrangement for city professionals. Completing the property is a one-piece shower room, and a separate, modern WC, with a handy countertop. Gas central heating and double glazing are throughout.
Residents have access to a large communal garden that is bordered by mature trees and leafy greens. To the front, on-street parking is also unrestricted.
Gorgie is ideally placed for access to the main commercial and financial heart of the city. Local shops on Gorgie Road offer a comprehensive range of services and other amenities including banking, Post Office facilities, dentists, and doctors. There is a Sainsburys at the foot of Westfield Road, an Asda supermarket at Newmart Road, and a Marks and Spencer Foodhall at Edinburgh West Retail Park, off Chesser Avenue.
Leisure and recreational opportunities nearby include Saughton Public Park, Gorgie City Farm, and Fountain Park Leisure Complex. Schooling is available locally from nursery to senior level and Napier University is close by for the more mature students. Excellent public transport links provide quick and easy access to the City Centre and beyond, whilst the City Bypass and motorway networks are all easily accessible.
