Set on a quiet cobbled street in Edinburgh’s bustling Leith district, this one-bedroom ground-floor flat boasts a prime central address within strolling distance of the fashionable Shore and enjoying swift access into the city centre. Offering desirable open-plan living space plus access to a south-facing shared rear garden and unrestricted on-street parking, the flat would be perfect for first-time buyers, professionals, downsizers, and rental investors alike.
A shared secure entrance leads to the front door which opens into a hallway presented with soft-toned décor and the attractive timber-styled flooring prominent throughout most of the property. To the right of the hall you step into the flat’s open-plan living accommodation. Here, a high ceiling and a tall front-facing window combine with an airy neutral backdrop to enhance a sense of light and space, whilst a traditional fireplace, set with a charming electric stove, creates a cosy focal point. Versatile floorspace accommodates a comfortable lounge area as well as a seated dining space and flows into a kitchen, neatly configured within a wide, open recess. Framed by practical wall and floor tiling, wood-inspired cabinets provide ample storage and workspace, and include an integrated cooker, a gas hob, and an extractor hood, along with an undercounter fridge/freezer and a washing machine. Lit by twin windows, defined by a high ceiling and presented with relaxing, muted décor, a double bedroom incorporates space for freestanding furnishings of choice. Finally, a good-sized bathroom is enveloped in white wall tiling, with stylish mosaic accents, and features a three-piece suite with a shower-over-bath. The flat is double glazed throughout.
Externally, residents enjoy access to a leafy, south-facing rear garden, whilst parking in the vicinity is conveniently unrestricted.
