ALL INCLUSIVE SHORT TERM/CORPORATE LET. Rare opportunity to rent a unique town-in the-country penthouse: This spacious and elegant 3 bedroom penthouse occupies the entire 5th floor of West Mill, a new apartment block nestled in Colinton Dell, beside the Water of Leith.
There are excellent public transport links into the city centre (20 minutes) and to the Edinburgh Business Park at the Gyle (10 minutes); the City Bypass is also only minutes away, giving quick access to the M8/M9/M90 and to Edinburgh Airport. The apartment itself sits just off the Water of Leith Walkway, a 12 ¾ mile public footpath and cycleway that runs through Edinburgh from Balerno to Leith.
The apartment is ideal for corporate lets or for short-term let to a small family. It consists of 3 interconnecting reception rooms which can be separated off from each other if desired. The large sitting room adjoins a smaller den or office, which in turn leads through into a large kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has granite worktops and a wide range of appliances, including an American fridge freezer, a second fridge/freezer, a wine cooler, dishwasher, waste disposal, fan oven, microwave/fan oven, and induction hob. There is a separate laundry room with a deep sink and a washer dryer. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and 3 luxury bathrooms (2 en-suite). Two spectacular terraces give views over parkland/ woods and to the south-west. The apartment has a TV package, broadband, security system, and video entry system to the building. There is garage parking for 2 cars and outside parking for visitors.
