The bright interior is arranged over part of the third and fourth floors (top) and offers a spacious well-lit living/dining room with an impressive panoramic view towards Corstorphine Hill, two double bedrooms, plus a further smaller bedroom or home office with skylight. The flat benefits from a large roof light, a fitted/equipped galley style kitchen, and a large bathroom which has a shower fitting over the bath.

The James Square Proprietors’ Association (JSPA) was created by the owners within the development to manage the maintenance costs of the common areas and services. It is understood the present charge for Number 55/15 is around £1,500 per annum, and covers the cleaning of common areas, the upkeep of the gym, swimming pool and landscaped grounds, common lighting, buildings insurance, and any further over heads.
The sale will include all the kitchen appliances, namely the built-in oven, filter hood and electric hob, together with the microwave, washing machine/tumble drier, and fridge/freezer. These items are sold as seen.
