The property has an enclosed, well-kept communal garden at the rear with private and secure outdoor storage. The property is conveniently located in the sought-after area of Leith, within easy walking distance to a wide variety of amenities. It is also a short walk to both Leith Links and Lochend Park, providing access to idyllic green spaces. The property is also a short walk to the popular Shore area where several cafes, restaurants and bars can be found. Regular bus links and tramlines (to the city centre and airport) are within minutes’ walk from the flat. This home will have broad appeal amongst a wide variety of buyers, including city professionals, couples, young families, and investors. With an alternate floorplan, the city flat also offers a high degree of flexibility, as it can be used as a two-bedroom residence (as it is currently organised) or as a three-bedroom home. To increase the number of sleeping quarters, a few simple alterations can be made, which will totally transform the property. As per the alternate floorplan, the dining/family room can instead be turned into the main living area, utilising it as a large open-plan reception space for everyday use. This slight change frees the existing living room up for use as a third bedroom, one which is a generously proportioned double. This floorplan variant is well-suited to families and rental investors looking to make the most of their return.
