20 Ryehill Avenue represents an outstanding home in Edinburgh’s highly desirable Leith Links district. The lovingly maintained lower villa offers spacious and versatile accommodation in one of Edinburgh's most sought-after locations, close to amenities, fantastic transport links and schools, making this the ideal home for the professional couple, downsizers or indeed the growing family.

The front door of this stone-built property is nestled behind a charming, enclosed front garden. Stepping into the home, via a large vestibule, you enter into a spacious reception hall, with a useful store cupboard, timber panelled doors and architraves. To the right is the front-facing living room with delightful period features including restored floorboards and an intricate cornice and a ceiling rose. It offers ample space for various room configuration and at the focal point of the room is an exquisitely tiled, vintage-styled fireplace. A deep bay window affords a view of the front garden. This classically proportioned room would also lend itself to use as a generous double bedroom.

Next door the dining room boasts a versatile floorplan, with a central dining area offering ample space for a large table and chairs, alongside a handy store cupboard, and a alcove, currently used as office space. Again, thanks to its proportions, this room would lend itself to a cozy living room. From here your reach the adjoining kitchen, creating a sociable, semi open-plan configuration. The kitchen is fitted with beech-inspired cabinets, paired with gloss-black worktops and tiled splashbacks. This cleverly designed space neatly incorporates a range of appliances. A short corridor gives a handy access to the rear garden. Accessed from the main hall, the first double bedroom enjoys a quiet, rear garden outlook, through a large picture window. Off the rear hall is a versatile room offering alternative use as a study, and currently used as a single bedroom. Completing the home is a three-piece bathroom, featuring a corner bath with an electric shower over. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round warmth throughout the property.

Outside, this delightful home benefits from a gated, ornamental front garden, with a sunny, south-westerly aspect. To the rear is a courtyard garden, paved for ease of maintenance, and ideal for alfresco drinks and barbecues. The property benefits from unrestricted on-street parking at the front.

Situated to the northeast of the city, Leith Links enjoys a tranquil ambience within walking distance of outstanding amenities. The vast, open space of Leith Links itself is home to a well-equipped play park, various football pitches and a thriving community croft, and in the summer months it also hosts the annual Leith Festival Gala Day and the Edinburgh Mela Festival. The property is just minutes’ walk from vibrant Leith Walk and the Shore district, with a fantastic blend of local services and amenities, eateries, galleries, and more. Great Junction Street, the New Kirkgate and the Foot of the Walk provides everything you need for day-to-day life, while more extensive shopping facilities are available in the city centre or at nearby Ocean Terminal shopping centre. Leith Links offers an excellent range of schools including nursery and early years at Leith Primary or St Mary’s RC Primary School, followed by secondary education at Leith Academy. Leith Links enjoys exceptional public transport links into the city centre and beyond, and the new tram extension at Leith Walk will take you all the way to the airport, once completed.
