stopped by 148A Union Street
Located in the beating heart of Aberdeen, Number 148A Union Street’s trendy interior is disguised by its typical granite façade. Yet as soon as you open the door to flat A, the impressive conversion of this once traditional property is immediately evident.
At one time used as a city centre bank, the property retains several charming period features which add character amongst the modern conveniences.
Undoubtedly the heart of the home is the fabulous open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area, which offers a prime spot for entertaining.
The kitchen in particular is finished to a very high standard, with bespoke units and a range of integrated appliances.
The central island houses the hob as well as a stylish breakfast bar ideal for casual entertaining. However there is plenty of room for a sit down meal in the dining area, so it won’t be long before your first house-warming gathering.
A charming feature to the property is the former bank vault which has been thoughtfully converted into a useful utility area, keeping white goods out of sight.
The lounge offers a tranquil spot to put your feet up, complete with a large traditional window and ornate cornicing. Although located on a busy main road, extensive soundproofing and acoustic glazing keep the room peaceful.
Accessed via a door off the lounge is a spacious double bedroom complete with fitted storage. A further double bedroom enjoys views out over the illuminated central decking area.
The master suite is situated to the rear of the property and comes complete with built-in wardrobes and a luxury en-suite shower room.
Finishing the accommodation with a suitable flourish is the main bathroom which has been finished to a high standard with honed marble tiles, a freestanding bath and rainfall shower.
Situated in the middle of Aberdeen’s main shopping district, it doesn’t get much more central than Number 148A.
A huge number of amenities are located nearby, from restaurants to independent boutiques. Everything is within walking distance and regular transport links to all over the city are also on your doorstep.
