‘<b>Extremely spacious Victorian 4-bedroomed first floor flat in delightful setting immediately beside The Merchants of Edinburgh Golf Club’</b>

4 bedrooms
2 public rooms
2 bathrooms

This most spacious Victorian first floor apartment enjoys a truly tranquil setting within the prestigious Greenbank ‘village’. Number 15 is one of the few stone-built Scots Baronial buildings (Listed Category B) converted from a former hospital.  Its well-maintained communal foyer with entry system creates a grand entrance to the building which comprises only six apartments. Flat 3 will appeal to discerning purchasers of all age groups who appreciate timeless character, high ceilings and tall sash-and-casement windows which allow natural light to flood in.  Although perfectly serviceable, many of the fittings from the 1993’s conversion by Miller Homes would now benefit from upgrading and this has already been reflected in the valuation figure. The spacious interior (185 sqm) is versatile and includes generous storage including several fitted wardrobes. A vast and welcoming entrance hall gives access to all apartments. There is an elegant sitting room which has a bright library/study area off. A formal dining room is much larger than average and gives direct access to the sizeable kitchen/breakfast room which enjoys a bright and airy triple aspect. The master bedroom boasts a fitted wardrobe and large en suite bathroom featuring a bath (with shower over), bidet, wash hand basin and W.C. There are three further good-sized double bedrooms plus an internal family bathroom/shower.

Gas central heating is complemented by classic timber double glazed windows.

Externally, this stone building is framed by a neatly manicured communal garden to front. Flat 3 has a designated parking bay. There is also a large rear courtyard garden whilst illuminated walkways give access to the communal garden grounds within the development.
