Reached via a secure entry system and a stairwell, the flat's front door opens into a vestibule, leading into an airy hallway with built-in storage. Characterised by the neutral décor and modern, timber-effect flooring prominent throughout most of the home, the welcoming entrance area flows into a reception room, flooded with natural light from a window enjoying an enviable southwest-facing aspect.
A generous expanse of floorspace promises versatility and options for configuring a range of comfortable lounge furniture as well as a sociable, seated dining area. Located next door, a good-sized kitchen shares a similar sunny aspect and comes well-appointed with a range of modern cabinetry, framed by a sweep of wood-styled worktops, and stone-effect, mosaic-tiled splashbacks. The design incorporates an integrated raised oven, a gas hob, a concealed extractor hood, a fridge, a freezer, and a freestanding washing machine, whilst the layout thoughtfully provides for a compact seated dining space.
Two neighbouring double bedrooms enjoy a peaceful location at the opposite end of the hall. Both of the sleeping areas enjoy a generous footprint, further maximised by built-in wardrobes, and offer a perfect blank canvas for future styling and design. The master bedroom benefits from the additional luxury of an en-suite shower room with convenient vanity storage.
Completing the accommodation, a bathroom features a bathtub with an overhead shower, a WC-suite set into storage, and a wall-mounted mirror. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and warmth.

Located on the south side of the capital, approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, suiting every stage of life, and is popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan coffee shops, pubs, bars, and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This is heightened further during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen's Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. Newington is within the catchment area for well-regarded schools and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
