Set within a small contemporary development, it enjoys a quiet position, yet is ideally placed for access to fashionable Leith and the city centre and is perfect as an investment, a city home for professionals, or a young family. A secure shared entrance leads, via stairs, to the top floor, where the private front door opens into a welcoming reception hall. Setting the scene for the neutral interiors, which flow through the flat, are soft hued walls, crisp white woodwork, and a warming carpet. Ahead, you are led into the elegant living room; enjoying generous proportions, this airy space is fronted by a deep bay window, which is perfectly placed to frame the open views, stretching as far as the Firth of Forth. The adjoining farmhouse-inspired dining kitchen also boasts wonderful views, as far as Arthur’s Seat. Here, a spacious dining area is framed by two walls of creamtoned, floor and wall cabinets, with colourful tiled splashbacks, and incorporating an integrated hob, oven, and extractor fan, and a freestanding washing machine and refrigerator. The two double bedrooms are privately situated, respectively, to the front and rear of the flat. Each is finished with soft, neutral décor and comfortable carpeting, and benefits from large, fitted wardrobes. The beautifully appointed bathroom comes complete with a bath with a shower over, and a WC suite, set within vanity storage. There are two useful hall cupboards, with gas central heating and double glazing to ensure year-round warmth. Outside, to the rear of this factored development are well-kept communal gardens. Conveniently located to the front, the property enjoys access to permitted residents’ parking. Extras: All fitted floor.
Nestled on the border of Leith Links and Lochend, approximately two miles from the city centre, the tranquil residential area is cherished for its beautiful public parks and outstanding local amenities. Residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to shopping: bustling Leith Walk and nearby Meadowbank Shopping Park and Ocean Terminal provide a vast array of independent retailers, well-known high street shops and supermarkets. For fresh produce, the Leith Farmer’s market is held on Saturdays. Due to its ideal location residents are never far from a vibrant social scene, from the mix of trendy bars and traditional pubs on Leith Walk the city centre, to the Michelin-starred restaurants along the cosmopolitan Shore. The area also boasts a wealth of sport and fitness facilities including the well-equipped Meadowbank Sports Centre with an athletics track, outdoor pitches, a multi-purpose sports hall, a gym and fitness studios (due to reopen soon). For those who prefer the great outdoors, leafy Lochend Park is a favourite with joggers and dog walkers, while Portobello beach, the majestic Holyrood Park, Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat are just a short drive away. The area is served by an excellent range of local schools in both the public and private sector: it is within the catchment area for well-regarded Hermitage Park Primary School and Leith Academy, which is in easy walking distance. It benefits from fantastic public transport links into the city centre and across Edinburgh, and also offers convenient access to the A1, Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
