A new project – Bellevue

A new project – Bellevue

It should be Project with a capital P.

The cons: it’s small, the street doesn’t look like ‘lovely old Edinburgh’, and, well, just look at it!

I have a suspicion that street is about to change, and I’ve seen that once people paint over the pebbledash these houses can look quite charming.

Front of house: I figure I’ve already added a grand to the property by taking down the horrid vertical blinds!
