This beautifully presented, two-bedroom (plus box room) third/top-floor flat in Hillside forms part of a traditional tenement building in a sought-after central location, just a stone’s throw from outstanding amenities.

The property also features delightful period details and generous, classical proportions, altogether representing an ideal home for city professionals, couples, and small families.

Reached via a secure communal entrance and stairwell, the front door to the flat opens into a vestibule flowing into a hall with varnished wooden floorboards and four-panel wooden doors. It has concealed storage and leads left into the living room. This generously proportioned reception area continues the wooden floorboards, pairing it with soothing, neutral décor. A sweeping bay window is next to catch the eye, followed by a beautiful feature fireplace, and decorative cornice work which draws attention to the lofty ceiling. It has a modern and homely aesthetic, and is finished with an open press cupboard. In the dining kitchen, a generous footprint ensures excellent cabinet storage and ample worktop space. The appealing look is enhanced by under-cabinet lighting and an integrated five-burner gas hob and an eye-level (self-cleaning) double oven. It also includes a freestanding fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. A shelved recess, a pantry cupboard, and a stylish dining nook completes the space. Facing the flat’s front and rear are two airy double bedrooms, both of which have fitted carpets, light décor, and traditional feature fireplaces. The principal bedroom enjoys the larger proportions, whereas the second bedroom has a built-in cupboard. Furthermore, there is a handy box room that is currently utilised as a home office. Finishing the property is a three-piece bathroom (and overhead shower) that is attractively presented with a mix of white walls and contemporary tiling.
