Fancy living out a 1930s fantasy? You can if you buy this two-bedroom flat in the 1930s art deco Ravelston Garden building in Ravelston, Edinburgh.

It's an apartment in one of the three blocks built back in 1935, the work of Andrew Neil and Robert Hurd and originally known as the Jenners flats. Each one is a category A listed building, designated by Historic Scotland for 'national or international importance'.


As you might expect, the cool art deco exterior and stylised public area isn't really matched by the actual apartments, many of which have been designed more for comfort than as museum pieces. This is no exception.

Located on the first floor, it offers a 'recently upgraded' living space with two double bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room), lounge, dining room, access to a balcony (which overlooks the gardens) and of course, a kitchen. There's also a communal roof terrace and gardens, plus a large garage with automatic doors.

See the listing for more details and of course, more images. Offers in excess of £330,000 will secure it.
