Full Description

Property Summary

A unique and very interesting opportunity has arisen to purchase a large first floor four bedroom flat with separate entrance to two rooms, also on the first level, previously used for a home business. Together with all of this is another hidden gem, ripe for development, located and accessed from the second floor and comprising of two further rooms with large picture window. These rooms can be incorporated into the main flat or divided to make a separate property. There is great potential here for a purchaser to create something special, whilst retaining the beautiful period features such as high ceilings, deep skirtings and intricate cornicing. Off street parking to the rear is a great advantage, accessed from Walter's Wynd. Viewing is a must to fully appreciate size and potential.
