Tranquilly overlooking the large park of Leith Links, this iconic 1862 B-listed building has been converted from a whiskey bond, to form well-designed city accommodation in the cosmopolitan and bustling area of Leith Links. The property is ideal as a pied-a-terre for city professionals or would make the perfect purchase for first-time buyers, investors or even downsizers, due to its convenient lift access.
Situated on the first floor, the flat can be reached via a secure entry phone system and an attractive and fully maintained foyer with either lift or stair access. Once inside, you are welcomed by fresh neutral interiors paired with practical honey-coloured laminate flooring. At the far end of the L-shaped hallway is a generous living room, with a characterful sash-and- case window. The dining kitchen has been fitted with a large selection of white classically styled cabinets, at both wall and floor level.
The kitchen offers an integrated electric oven, hob and extractor hood and has been designed to accommodate under counter space for a washing machine and a fridge. A spacious pantry cupboard is fitted in the kitchen. With ample room for a table and chairs, the kitchen is ideal for seated dining and entertaining. The property comes with a spacious double bedroom enhanced by a floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors. Finally, completing the accommodation is a tiled bathroom comprising a matching white three- piece-suite with a shower over the bath and a glazed screen. Electric storage heating and double glazing throughout ensure a warm and economically-run home all year round. Ample, free on-street parking can be found on Johns Place and in the immediate vicinity.
