Set on the third floor of a striking modern development in popular Abbeyhill, this one-bedroom flat represents a fabulous city home, with desirable open-plan living space and a stylish contemporary finish. The development boasts lift access to all floors and is accompanied by well maintained communal gardens and private residents’ parking, whilst enjoying easy access to excellent local amenities and leisure facilities, scenic open parkland, and convenient transport links.
Approached via a secure communal entrance and a stairwell or a lift to the third floor, the front door opens into a hallway (with storage) defined by crisp-white décor and modern wood-styled flooring. Leading off here, a wide west-facing room is enhanced by floor-to-ceiling glazing, which opens onto a charming ornamental balcony and floods the reception space with an abundance of natural light. The open-plan L-shaped layout incorporates a comfortable living area, a designated setting for a dining table and chairs, and an impressive contemporary kitchen. Glossy streamlined cabinetry provides a stylish cooking zone, with ample workspace, and is fully-integrated with a double oven, a gas hob, a statement extractor hood, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The flat’s double bedroom enjoys a backdrop of neutral décor and carpeting, and is further enhanced by a full-height west-facing window. The generous sleeping area is supplemented by built-in wardrobe storage, leaving plenty of room for a variety of freestanding furnishings. Finally, a three-piece bathroom is chic in style and impeccable in presentation. Notable features are a shower-over-bath, vanity storage and a chrome towel radiator. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout. Externally, residents enjoy manicured garden space and convenient private parking.
Situated close to Edinburgh’s iconic Royal Mile, Abbeyhill offers easy access to the world-class entertainment and shopping found in the bustling heart of the capital. The area is currently enjoying a surge in popularity thanks to the wealth of independent shops and vibrant restaurants, pubs, and cafés in the immediate area. It also benefits from being close to the thriving amenities of Leith Walk and Easter Road, as well as Meadowbank Retail Park, which boasts a Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencer Outlet, and TK Maxx, plus a number of additional high-street stores and fast-food outlets. Furthermore, the St James Quarter is within easy reach, the £1billion development offering world-class designer stores, trendy bars, entertainment facilities, and a diverse range of restaurants and eateries. Sports enthusiasts are well-catered for by the nearby, soon to re-open, Meadowbank Sports Centre, which offers everything from multi-purpose sports halls and athletic tracks, to fitness classes and a state-of-the-art gym. Those who prefer to exercise in the great outdoors can opt for a walk-up Salisbury Crags and Arthur’s Seat, or a slightly more leisurely climb up Calton Hill, either way enjoying spectacular panoramic views across the city. There is also excellent public and private schooling nearby, from nursery level upwards. The area is extremely well-connected with regular day and night bus services and good access to commuter routes, while Waverley train station is within walking distance.
