Set on a leafy cobbled street in the heart of cosmopolitan Leith, this traditional one-bedroom, second-floor flat enjoys an enviable southwest-facing aspect and offers desirable open-plan living space, access to a shared garden, and convenient unrestricted on-street parking. On the doorstep of fabulous local amenities and enjoying swift access into the city centre and excellent commuter links, the bright, neutrally-decorated flat will appeal to first-time buyers, city professionals and rental investors alike.
Approached via a secure entrance and stairwell to the second floor, the front door opens into a hallway characterised by light, airy décor and neutral carpeting. Located to the right of the hall is the flat’s open-plan living accommodation. Filled with south-westerly sun light, a cosy reception area is supplemented by a traditional press and offers room to create a comfortable living and dining space, with a delightful backdrop of leafy garden views. Zoned by practical stripped pine flooring, a wall of wood-styled kitchen cabinets is framed by attractive splashback tiling and neatly accommodate a fridge and a washing machine. Blending with the warm tones of the cabinetry and flooring, a bi-folding, timber-slatted door discreetly conceals a cooking zone, replete with a freestanding cooker, a practical tiled floor and handy shelving. The flat’s double bedroom boasts a traditional press and an open storage recess, and echoes the living accommodation’s understated neutral backdrop. Finally, a bright bathroom features crisp-white wall tiling and is fitted with a bathtub with an overhead shower, a WC, and a wash hand basin. Double glazing is found throughout.
Externally, the flat is accompanied by a sunny communal garden/drying green, whilst parking in the area is conveniently unrestricted.
