The very large, bright living room includes period decoration such as cornicing, a gas fireplace and a bay window overlooking the front garden and Gladstone Terrace. Two large leather sofas provide ample space for up to four people. There is also a coffee table, dining table with four chairs and a display cupboard.
The fully fitted kitchen includes a glass dining table at the window overlooking the rear shared gardens. There are ample cupboards, along with a walk-in utility at the back of the kitchen with shelving, washing machine, drying machine and microwave. Features include a fridge / freezer, gas cooker (hobs), electric fan oven and grill, iron and ironing board, and a ceiling clothes pulley for drying washing if required. The combi boiler provides instant hot water automatically, while in winter, central heating can be on timer.
The front bedroom overlooks the front garden and Gladstone Terrace, with wooden shutters at the window. The double bed can be supplemented if required with a single bed, which can either be set up in the front bedroom or the lounge. A supplementary charge will be applied for use of the single bed. Furniture includes a wardrobe, two bedside cabinets and shelving (supplied since this photo was taken).
The back bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has a double bed. Two ceiling height mirrored wardrobes, chest of drawers and two bedside cabinets provide plenty of space for your personal belongings during your stay.
Bathroom and separate toilet
The large bathroom includes a shower cubicle and a second shower over the bath. The toilet is in a separate room off the hall.
This traditional property is packed with period features to really help give it that homely feel that our guests love, for example wooden floors, cornicing, feature fireplaces and working shutters. There is also a private garden to the front and a shared garden to the rear. Both are free for guests to use.
Other things you need to know
Rubbish is collected from on-street bins in Gladstone Terrace. Recycling collection points for paper and packaging (plastic bottles, cardboard, tins) are also on Gladstone Terrace. Glass recycling is at James Gillespie's School, further west on Warrender Park Road.
There is zone 7 residents parking on Gladstone Terrace with on-street metered parking on Gladstone Terrace, Sciennes Road and other nearby streets. Note metered parking is cheaper in zone S1 (just the other side (south) of Sciennes Road) than in zone 7, and must be paid between 08:30 to 17:30 Monday to Friday. Free parking beyond zone S1 is about 15 minutes walk from the flat.
As the flat is in a quiet location and residential staircase, it is not suitable for stag/hen weekends or other events where you plan to party.
