This bright well-presented second floor apartment forms part of a traditional four storey stone built tenement, originally constructed during the end of the 19th century. The tastefully decorated interior displays many period features, including plain and decorative cornice work, picture rails, fireplace surrounds, and the original timber flooring which have now been sanded and sealed, adding great character. Offering ideal accommodation for a first or second time buyer, the apartment provides a most attractive front facing bay windowed sitting room with a lovely open outlook towards the distant Corstorphine Hill, a large double bedroom, the charming rear facing ‘country style’ kitchen/dining room, and an impressive panelled and tiled bathroom incorporating a white three piece suite, with a shower fitting over the bath. There is also a very useful Study/Box Room with a high level window producing natural light from the adjacent kitchen/dining room. The property benefits from a gas central heating system fired by a Combi boiler, a security entry phone, and access to a generous well-kept communal back garden.
The much sought after Learmonth district lies just to the north west of the city centre, below Edinburgh’s fashionable West End, rubbing shoulders with Comely Bank and Stockbridge. This very convenient location affords easy access to a wide range of commercial facilities, including a good selection of restaurants, bistros and bars. George Street, Princes Street and the Financial District are within easy walking distance, while nearby Stockbridge with its unique ‘Village’ atmosphere offers an excellent selection of local shops and a regular market every Sunday, close to the bridge crossing the Water of Leith. A Waitrose Store is also only a short walk from the property on Comely Bank Road and the Craigleith Retail Park minutes away. Regular bus services connect with many parts of the city and nearby Queensferry Road offers a fast route to the west side of Edinburgh, with onward links to the M8, M9 and M90 motorway network, the city by-pass and International Airport. Several well respected public and private schools at both primary and secondary levels are also within easy reach, including Flora Stevenson on Comely Bank Road.
Learmonth Grove runs in a north to south direction connecting Comely Bank Road with Learmonth Gardens. Number 38 sits on the north east side of the street, opposite Learmonth Park.
