Beautiful retirement flat in sheltered housing development
This is a particularly bright second floor “retirement” flat in ever popular Marchmont. It comprises hall, spacious living come dining room, pleasant bedroom with fitted wardrobe, kitchen with attractive wall and floor units, and shower room.
Within the building, there is a residents’ lounge and a communal laundry as well as accommodation for guests, and on top of it, there is a shared roof terrace. There are resident management staff and an alarm service. An audio-controlled door entry system provides security and there are lifts to all floors in the building.
There are plenty of local shops – fishmongers, bakers and greengrocers, for example – and coffee shops pretty much just across the road or round the corner. A Sainsbury’s Local and a Scotmid are close by too and when more major stocking up is needed, the Morningside Waitrose and the Cameron Toll Sainsbury’s and Aldi are only a short drive away.
Walks through The Meadows are just themselves just a short walk away. It’s also easy to get to the cinema (the Dominion in Morningside or the Cameo in Tollcross) and the theatre (the Kings, also in Tollcross, and the Festival Theatre, just down from the Bridges) and there are regular concerts at The Queens Hall in Newington. The stops for the No. 41 bus are just a short walk away, meaning that it is very easy to get to and from the City Centre, but there is also private off street parking for those with cars.
The property is in good decorative order throughout and viewing is certainly recommended. Double glazing helps keep it quiet and warm and the hot water comes from an electric combi boiler that was fitted in 2017. All curtains and blinds and the cooker and fridge freezer are included in the
