We are delighted to present for sale this spacious and highly attractive, ground floor apartment which enjoys an enviable location in the heart of Aberdeen’s fashionable West End. Forming part of a traditional granite building, the apartment is well laid out to provide an excellent level of accommodation, perfect for the professional couple or individual, and is presented in truly walk-in condition. There are the comforts of gas fired central heating (courtesy of a newly installed combination boiler), full double glazing and intruder alarm system. The home has been substantially improved by the current owners to create a property which successfully combines numerous period characteristics with contemporary style and quality. Noteworthy features include original, restored panelled doors, floorboards, ceiling cornicing and roses, some with ornate plasterwork and picture rails. The rooms comprise shared vestibule, welcoming reception hall, stunning spacious lounge to the front with feature bay window and attractive cast-iron fireplace, large double bedroom with quiet aspect overlooking the rear garden, good sized dining room (which could be used as a second bedroom), large well-appointed breakfasting kitchen with light fronted units and recently renovated bathroom with modern bath suite and newly-installed over-bath shower. There is a well-maintained, exclusive garden to the front, as well as a shared enclosed, sheltered garden to the rear, and of further note will be the garage with rear lane access, and the spacious cellar below the property, ideal for storage. Permit parking is available upon application and all fitted floor coverings, curtains, blinds, light fittings and kitchen appliances will be included in the sale. Early viewing is recommended.
