The large living room has a bay window, overlooking Comely Bank Road and offers views of Fettes College, “undeniably one of Scotland’s greatest buildings’’; it has a wooden boarded floor, dado rail and corniced ceiling.

There is a traditional fireplace containing a flame gas fire and an attractive arched top alcove to its left.

A large box room, with borrowed south facing light from a high-level internal window, makes an ideal home office. Two comfortable double bedrooms, the master having built-in cupboards and a naturally lit, tiled bathroom with three-piece suite and shower over the bath complete the accommodation. Being top floor, the flat has its own attic space that is spacious, both in height and useable floor space. Currently used for additional storage but an owner could look at alternative uses.

A new combi gas-fired central heating boiler has recently been installed and the electrical wiring has also been upgraded and renewed. Double glazing is fitted to the windows to the front of the flat. There is a communal rear garden.
