Investment Opportunity in Prime Universities Location

Boyd Legal - Mardale CrescentA FLAT located between three of Edinburgh’s universities is giving buyers the option of an especially savvy investment.

The four bedroom second-floor flat, at 6 (2F2) Mardale Crescent, offers the perfect dwelling for students and is on the market with Boyd Property for offers over £399,000.

With the current tenant’s lease expiring in August, the Merchiston flat could become vacant at the perfect move in date for students starting their term next year.

Parents looking for potential locations for their children could also make a great investment in this property, renting it out to other students long after their son or daughter has graduated.

Kerry Wells, Property Manager for Boyd Property said: “This property has some great potential especially as a place for students.

“With three universities close by, not forgetting various colleges, the student market is always looking for great places close to their place of study as well as central enough for socialising.

“The flat we have here is great for people looking to make an investment in a prime Edinburgh location.

“It also offers great flexibility and could become the ideal family pad.”

Aside from being just across the street from Napier University, the Merchiston property also has great travel links to both The University of Edinburgh and Herriot Watt University.

The property benefits from a master bedroom and three other double bedrooms; two of which have original feature fireplaces. The large hallway leads to the spacious living room which benefits from a stunning bay window.

The flat also has a good sized box room, perfect for students who like a little more peace to study. Arguments about using the shower in the morning can also be avoided as this property has a family bathroom and a separate shower room.

A well-kept communal garden is to the rear of the property and on-street parking permits are also available to residents.

Merchiston is a well sought after area, especially by students, and is only 15 minutes from the city centre by bus.

Viewings available by appointment.
