A great opportunity to buy a conveniently located flat that could serve a whole range of people. Families seeking room for children; investors seeking an ideal rental property; single people or a young couple seeking space, perhaps to work from home. This is the ideal property for any of you and all of you.
Set back from the road, the location has excellent bus links to central Edinburgh and beyond. The bright lounge offers views southwards across the city to the hills beyond. Double glazing keeps noise down and cosiness up, helped by a gas fire in the lounge and gas central heating powered by a Worcester Bosch combi boiler. The good-sized kitchen is open to the hallway and features a handy breakfast bar for those who want to start eating when it’s extra hot. The bright, clean shower room has a modern feel. And then there’s not one, nor two, but three well-proportioned bedrooms. It’s not finished there, though: the flat also has its own private garden space.
Convenience is a key consideration for many people and with a large Sainsbury’s supermarket only a short walk away at Craigleith Retail Park, not to mention the Marks & Spencer and many other handy shops there, this is certainly a convenient location. Nearer still is a McDonald’s on Telford Road itself, where there is an electric vehicle charging station. Telford Road also hosts a 24-hour Shell petrol station with convenience store. A large Morrisons supermarket is only a short drive away at Ferry Road, with the Ainslie Park Leisure Centre providing swimming, gym and racquet sports facilities only slightly beyond. The restaurants, bars and independent shops of Comely Bank and Stockbridge are also within easy reach.
Some might be tempted to upgrade the property, which is well-decorated within; but there is scope to take time and consider how best to improve the property, if that’s your aim.
Sitting behind the flat’s uPVC front door, the hall links the rooms and opens ontothe kitchen. A handy storage cupboard helps make the most of the space.

The gas fire and generous, double-glazedwindow make this a comforting space, whatever the time of year.

The main bedroom of the house has a north-facing window lookingover the quiet garden areas to the rear of the property.

The smallest of the three bedrooms is still more than adequate for achild’s bedroom or a guest room. These days, of course, people’s minds may turn to ahomeworking space; and this would be the perfect room for that much needed homeoffice or study as well.
