54/2 Water Street, The Shore, EH6 6SU

3 Bedrooms Flat / Apartment | Offers Over £340,000


Tastefully refurbished by its current owners, this large first floor flat previously consisted of two properties, which were converted into a single residence in the 1980s. The flat boasts 1188 square feet of beautiful accommodation with two reception rooms, a magnificent kitchen, two large double bedrooms, a single bedroom/home office, a designer bathroom, and a separate WC.

Entering via a secure communal stairwell, the front door opens into the dining room. Here, the tiled floors, bespoke built-in seating and recessed downlights offer a glimpse of the interiors to follow. The floor seamlessly flows through a wide opening into an inspired kitchen on the one side, and a grand living room on the other side. This semi open plan layout is ideal for entertaining and modern living. The living room is lit by two west-facing sash-and-case windows (with secondary glazing) and this large formal reception room comes with original floorboards, a converted Edinburgh Press with display shelving and a cupboard, plus hidden cabling for a wall mounted television. The kitchen is fitted with quality composite worktops, a distressed copper splashback, and a large focal island housing a deep-set sink with a commercial style tap. Behind the white handleless units, this kitchen hides an impressive range of integrated appliances. The kitchen has been designed to incorporate a seating space at the east-facing window. A pulley-system for drying clothes is outside the window. The long and wide hallway leads to two generous double bedrooms. The first bedroom enjoys a sunny aspect from its sash-and-case window (with secondary glazing), stylish decor, original floorboards, decorative cornicing, and ample space for bedroom furniture. The second double bedroom, also stylishly decorated, enjoys cosy carpeting and a fitted wardrobe. A home office, with exposed floorboards and a large sash-and-case window, has an attractive curved wall and could be used as a nursery or child’s bedroom. An exquisite and completely refurbished bathroom fashioned in a vintage style, boasts underfloor heating, a marble handwash basin (from the Scotsman Hotel), metro tiling with decorative detail, integrated lights, a vintage-style radiator, a wall hung WC and a bath with a shower over, complete with a glazed screen, traditional shower head and hand-held shower attachment. Completing this exquisite city home is a separate WC with tongue and grove wood panelling, distressed floor tiles, playful bold wallpaper, a small window, and a contemporary WC-suite. The property benefits from gas central heating (with two distressed copper radiator covers) fired by a combi boiler and secondary glazing (under guarantee) in the living room and bedroom 1. Free, unrestricted on-street parking is available.

Situated approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital’s maritime industry. The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of most desirable postcodes in the capital. Characterised by its narrow, cobbled streets and continental-style waterfront, the area exudes a charming, small-town ambience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Shore is renowned for its buzzing arts and social scene, which is fuelled by a fabulous selection of galleries and boutiques, trendy bars and award-winning eateries. For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food! The area is served by an excellent range of local services and amenities, particularly in the bustling shopping area around the Foot of the Walk and Great Junction Street. Ocean Terminal shopping centre offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities. The Shore is within the catchment area for Leith Primary and Leith Academy with the Leith School of Art nearby. The Shore enjoys fantastic public transport links into the city centre and beyond, and also provides swift and easy to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
