Boasting desirable open-plan living, an impeccable standard of presentation and a high-quality finish throughout, and a private parking space, 128/7 McDonald Road represents a chic city residence for professionals, young families and downsizers, or a wonderful buy-to-let investment.
A secure video entry system and a lift (or stairs) give access to the first floor, where a shared balcony with sound-sensitive lighting leads to the front door of the apartment. A welcoming entrance hall with a useful storage cupboard opens into the main reception room where an outstanding open-plan space awaits. Spanning the full width of the apartment, the kitchen/living and dining room is flooded with natural light from twin southwest-facing windows. The contemporary white décor combined with sleek timber-styled flooring enhance a sense of dimension and beautiful styling from a palette of neutral colours demonstrates a stylish yet comfortable living and dining area. Flowing seamlessly from here, a high-quality silver and warm grey kitchen is lavishly appointed with a range of contemporary flat panelled base and wall cabinets framed by downlit worktops and discreetly incorporating a number of integrated Bosch appliances.
The apartment houses two double bedrooms positioned quietly off an inner hallway, enhanced by plush carpeting. Both offer comfortable, relaxing spaces and scope for styling with a generous selection of freestanding bedroom furniture with the additional benefit of mirrored in-built storage. The principal bedroom enjoys the luxury of a chic en-suite shower room. Finally, a bathroom features a bath with an overhead shower, a hidden-cistern WC, a wall hung basin, and a large wall-mounted mirror. Double glazing and gas central heating ensure year-round warmth and efficiency. Externally, residents of the development benefit from a shared bike store and an allocated parking space.
Bellevue is a sought-after area on the cusp of Edinburgh’s New Town, just a short walk from the vibrant social scene at the top of Leith Walk. The area is also home to a wealth of entertainment, including a multi-screen cinema and gym at The Vue Omni Centre, The Edinburgh Playhouse and The Stand Comedy Club on nearby York Place. Stroll a few minutes further and you are in the heart of the city centre. The property is also within walking distance of Broughton Primary School and Drummond Community High School. The area also benefits from a wealth of public transport: buses run day and night along Leith Walk; the new tram line stops at York Place, connecting you quickly to Edinburgh Airport. Waverley Station is within walking distance, offering frequent commuter services to the West.
