This bright and spacious, two-bedroom, top-floor retirement flat forms part of a sought-after McCarthy and Stone development, which enjoys a highly desirable setting in Roseburn, peacefully situated by the Water of Leith and Roseburn Public Park. The property offers well-presented interiors throughout, including a dual-aspect living/dining room, a well-appointed kitchen, and a modern shower room, and it has a private balcony and access to landscaped gardens and private residents’ parking. In addition, the development provides an on-duty house manager, a 24-hour Careline alarm system with emergency pull cords, and a residents’ lounge, laundry service, and guest suite.
Reached via a secure shared entrance and lift service, the flat’s front door opens into a welcoming hall with two built-in cupboards. It flows naturally into the living/dining room. Here, a soft neutral palette creates an inviting and comfortable setting for daily use, whilst dual-aspect windows (to the west and south) ensure a light-filled ambience throughout the day. This reception area also enjoys spacious dimensions for lounge furniture and a large nook for dining furniture; plus, it extends out onto a private balcony with a south-facing aspect and lovely elevated views to the Pentland Hills. From the living area, double doors lead into the kitchen, which is well-appointed with cabinetry and generous workspace, presented in white and wood-toned hues (respectively). An oven and electric hob are integrated, alongside space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. The two double bedrooms are on the opposite side of the hall, both enjoying spacious footprints, light neutral décor, and soft carpets for comfort. The principal bedroom further boasts a south-facing aspect and a built-in mirrored wardrobe. A modern shower room completes the accommodation, fitted with a hidden-cistern toilet, a washbasin with counterspace, and a walk-in seated shower enclosure. Electric heating and double glazing ensure a warm environment all year round.
Outside, the development provides beautiful communal gardens that features manicured lawns, established planting, and a patio area for relaxing and dining in the sun. Furthermore, it has private residents’ parking as well.
Please note: residents are accepted from 60 years of age. For couples, one must be at least 60 and the other at least 55 years of age.
