This much larger than might be expected one-bedroom, top-floor flat is in a traditional, Victorian tenement at the corner of Stewart Terrace and Wardlaw Terrace in the perennially desirable Gorgie area; one of Edinburgh’s most vibrant locales. The enormous lounge benefits from a beautiful bay window with a bright and pleasing top-floor aspect. Lying on the south-western edge of Edinburgh’s city centre, Gorgie is an area that benefits from all of the amenities that one normally associates with city centre living, such as medical practices; dental practices; supermarkets; and local shops. it also benefits from being within an easy walk of Fountain Park, with its multiplex cinema, bowling alley, health club, restaurants and bars. In the opposite direction, the green space at Saughton Park is also only a short walk away. Armchair sports fanatics might be willing to swap the comfort of their home for the brief stroll to either BT Murrayfield Stadium or Tynecastle Park in order to enjoy live, top-level sporting action. Direct bus routes to most parts of Edinburgh are available from either Gorgie Road or Slateford Road. Haymarket railway station and tram stop are within walking distance or a only a lazy bus journey away, meaning that the Gyle Centre; offices in the business parks at the Gyle; the RBS headquarters at Gogarburn; and Edinburgh Airport are all within easy reach. the cultural diversions in the city centre are easily accessible, with Princes Street being only a 1.5 mile walk away. The flat is an ideal starter home for a single person or a young couple; and it has the potential for alteration and development into a two-bedroom property. It really is all things to all people!
