EXPRESS PROPERTY with Heather Rose

But it has an unusual claim to fame. It comes with planning consent for a two-bedroom extension with a roof terrace.

The project has been given the green light because the work will not interfere with the sight lines to Arthur’s seat.

Special features of this apartment, at Queens Park Avenue, Meadowbank – at present a two-bedroom home – include a bay windowed sitting room which has an outlook that takes in Holyrood Park. The kitchen-dining room has a hidden laundry and study areas and the box room is flexible as it can have roles as an office or additional bedroom thanks to a built-in mezzanine bed.

The apartment is being sold through DJ Alexander at offers over £185,000. Info: 0131-652 7312.
