An excellent opportunity to purchase a two-bedroom ground floor Victorian tenement flat, in need of modernisation and redecoration. This property is located in a quiet, desirable street in the heart of Newington, with the advantage of a large west facing communal garden.

This property has served as an ideal buy to let investment for several years and will appeal to all manners of buyer including first-time buyers, investors, families, and young professionals.

Entered via a secure entry system and communal stair, this property just oozes potential and an opportunity to add value. The main door opens into a welcoming hallway with storeroom to the left on entering and a further deep recessed cupboard offering further storage. A spacious sitting room/dining room is positioned to the rear of the property with a desirable aspect overlooking the communal gardens.

There is a reasonably sized utility room off the living area which, with the relevant consents could be upgraded to provide a large family bathroom suite or an even larger public room.

Two large double bedrooms are located to the front of the property.  Each with original features such as cornicing and sash and case windows.

An internal kitchen offers well-proportioned cupboard space and worktops which, once redecorated, will appeal to those who enjoy cooking and entertaining. Alternatively, if the kitchen were to be relocated within the property to the public room, it could be used as a large office study.

A bright and airy three-piece shower room with window to the rear completes the accommodation on offer.
