A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire a handsome detached villa which is currently divided into two separate self contained apartments in the heart of the City's west end. The whole property has retained many fine period features such as high, corniced ceilings, fireplaces and bay windows and, whilst perfectly habitable, prospective purchasers may wish to undertake a degree of modernisation. The ground floor apartment is entered from double doors at the front of the building and has two public rooms and two bedrooms. The upper apartment has an external staircase to the side of the property and enjoys generous accommodation spanning two floors. It is thought that an internal staircase could be installed between the two apartments in order that the property be re-instated to one magnificent family home.

There is easy access to the city centre, the suburbs, the international airport and the main arterial routes around the city. Excellent private or state schools are within reach including the International School, and there is a choice of nurseries close by, as well as local convenience shops. As Europe's energy capital and Scotland's third city, there is a wealth of amenities including shopping malls and boutiques, theatres and cinemas, parks and gardens, leisure and recreational facilities, fine dining and night life, and for the outdoor enthusiast there is a diversity of landscape from mountains to sea.

Turn right at the next roundabout on to Forest Road and Rubislaw Den South is the first road on the left hand side. No 18 is located on the right hand side.
