This superbly presented 2-bedroom property forms part of a traditional Edinburgh tenement building dating back to the late 1880s. The area is exceptionally well served by a range of local shops including cafes, hairdressers, grocers and various other retailers. Within a comfortable walk are national supermarket operators including ALDI, Sainsbury and Lidl, with a 24-hour ASDA and the recently completed West Edinburgh Retail park only slightly further on. The property benefits from excellent transport links. Being located off of Gorgie Road, first-rate bus links to central Edinburgh and the rest of the city are readily available.

The nearby Fountainpark development also offers a range of pursuits including ten pin bowling and a multiplex cinema, plus a plethora of restaurants.
