Approx. 1.8-miles south-west of Princes Street lies the vibrant Viewforth district of Edinburgh City where you will find a mixture of residential apartments (purpose built and converted) and family homes. 10 (2F2) St Peter’s Building’s is found within a traditional tenement block on the second floor, enjoying a lovely private aspect and with fantastic views across the North of Edinburgh from the water all the way back to the Castle. The property is accessed via a secure communal (well kept) staircase with a short flight of steps leading to the apartment door.
Upon entering, you are greeted by a lengthy hallway which grants access to all of the rooms and gives a hint to the size of the apartment thanks to, in part, the ceiling heights which is carried on throughout. There is also the addition of the pully. The living room is found to the front of the property with bay window overlooking Gilmore Place. There is plenty of space to host a dining table and comfortably fit two double / triple couches.
The neighbouring room in the middle of the layout is where we have the breakfasting kitchen with many base units & workspace containing the integrated gas hob and oven along with a selection of freestanding white goods (incl. fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine). The upper units also provide plenty of storage and there is the wall mounted extractor hood as well.
There are a total of three double bedrooms (one facing to the front, neighbouring the living room and two facing out towards the rear / North side of Edinburgh). All with enough space to house a double bed, wardrobe/s, bedside tables etc. whilst retaining additional usable floorspace. The family bathroom completes the property internally with a four-piece bathroom suite (toilet, sink basin, bath and shower unit).
Complemented throughout by gas central heating (via the combi-boiler) and double-glazed window units.
Externally, the property has access to the large, communal rear garden space which is mainly laid to lawn.
