This bright, airy flat truly is a charming home. The spacious rooms are full of daylight thanks to the surprisingly large, double-glazed windows. They allow for exceptional natural illumination during daylight hours and offer a lovely view of Harrison Park from the front-facing rooms. The rear overlooks the building’s well-maintained communal garden; and neither front nor back face other buildings. It’s ideal for any single person, young couple or perhaps someone looking to downsize while retaining the comforts to which they are accustomed. The comforts are showcased best in the lounge, which features period cornicework; a fully-functioning period fireplace; and a huge bay window. The modern, fitted kitchen features attractive units with bespoke ash wood features providing plenty of storage, a useful fully-shelved Edinburgh press and, more importantly, a dining recess. The bedroom has another large window overlooking the park and features plenty of space for the furniture of your choice. The handy boxroom is presently in use as that latest home essential, a study; and it’s the perfect place to work without distractions. It also features a large, wall-to-wall fitted wardrobe offering excellent storage. The bathroom was modernised by the current owner and has a contemporary, white, three-piece bathroom suite with light turquoise tiling and an over-the-bath shower. Bathroom storage needs are well met by a range of built-in cabinets. The sanded floorboards throughout provide a classic, yet fashionable feel. Located in the popular Shandon area, as well as the outdoor space at Harrison Park, enjoyable strolls along the Union Canal are easily accessible. As for convenience, there are local shops and takeaways in Shandon itself and the wider range of local businesses available at Gorgie and Dalry, in one direction, and Morningside, in the other, are only a few minutes’ walk away. Larger supermarkets, including the Murrayfield Sainsbury’s, the Morningside Waitrose and the 24-hour ASDA at Chesser, are also within easy reach. The area is well-served with buses to the city centre, which could easily be reached on foot, if one so wished and there is unrestricted on-street parking. Churchhill Theatre and the Dominion and Cineworld cinemas are all within walking distance. The property benefits from gas central heating with a combi boiler and uPVC double-glazing. White goods, light fittings and window coverings are included (save for the curtains in the bedroom).
With its sanded floorboards, the bright, neutrally-decorated hall provides a welcoming entrance to the property. A useful press-type cupboard provides storage.

A kitchen that’s so generous in size that there’s room for too many cooks. There’s also a dining recess. Modern fitted units are practical, but still sympathetic to the property’s style. White goods are included, the large window provides plenty of daytime light and the walk-in cupboard provides exceptional extra storage.
3.86 m X 3.3 m / 12’8″ X 10’10”
Another large window makes this a pleasant room in which to wake. Its generous proportions leave plenty of room for additional furniture. The sanded floorboards add a period touch to an otherwise modern room.
Refitted to a high standard by the current owner, the bathroom features a contemporary three-piece suite in white, with an over-the-bath shower and plenty of storage.
2.69 m X 1.98 m / 8’10” X 6’6″
The latest must-have for any home is an office or home-working space; and this is an ideal example. It’s the perfect space to hide away and work; and the wall-to-wall fitted wardrobes provide excellent storage space for clothing.
