Enviably located beside the Water of Leith in Edinburgh's fashionable Shore district, this two-bedroom, third-floor flat is an impressive property for city professionals and small families. It is within easy reach of award-winning amenities and regular transport links; plus, it offers residents' parking, and is brought to market in move-in condition. Inside the flat, reached via a secure shared entrance and stairwell, you are greeted by a central hall that sets the style and standards of the accommodation, with its neutral palette and wood-inspired floor (found predominantly throughout). It has a cupboard and generous walk-in storage, and leads directly into the living room. Here, the understated decoration continues, creating an inviting environment that is easy to dress. It is well-proportioned for lounge furniture, and has an open archway flowing through to the dining room, where there is fitted shelving and a serving hatch to the kitchen. The two reception areas also enjoy dual-aspect windows. Meanwhile, the kitchen is well-appointed with cabinet storage and worksurface space. It has a popular colour scheme too, pairing wood and black granite inspired tones with white splashback tiles. Furthermore, it comes with integrated appliances (electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer) and an undercounter washing machine. Sharing the same aspect and styling as the living area, the two double bedrooms enjoy a bright and airy ambience for a peaceful night's sleep. A bright three-piece bathroom, with an overhead shower, is on the opposite side of the hall from the bedrooms. Electric heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort. Externally, there is private residents' parking and a charming communal garden beside the Water of Leith, providing lovely views of the harbour. The Shore Approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital's maritime industry. Like much of Edinburgh's northern seaboard, The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of the most desirable postcodes in the capital, recently voted as one of the best places to live by The Times in 2019. Characterised by its narrow, cobbled streets and continental-style waterfront, the area exudes a charming, small-town ambience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Shore is renowned for its buzzing arts and social scene, which is fuelled by a fabulous selection of galleries and boutiques, trendy bars and award-winning eateries, including no fewer than three Michelin-starred restaurants. For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food. The Shore is served by an excellent range of local services and amenities, particularly in the bustling shopping area around the Foot of the Walk and Great Junction Street. Ocean Terminal shopping centre offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities including a variety of high-street stores, a selection of family restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, and a 24-hour gym. The Shore is within the catchment area for well-regarded primary and secondary schools and enjoys fantastic public transport links into the city centre. It also provides swift and easy to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport, and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
