Property highlight: 2 Bed Flat in Edinburgh with stunning waterfront views of Firth of Forth & the Harbour
Enviably located on the shorefront of Newhaven, directly overlooking the Firth of Forth, this spacious two-bedroom second-floor flat boasts spectacular waterfront views, a south-facing balcony, and private parking. The modern property, with crisp interior design and contemporary fixtures and fittings, is a ready to move-into home and a turn-key investment opportunity.
The flat’s front door, reached via a secure communal entrance and stairwell, opens into a bright and airy hall with three storage cupboards. White décor and oak-laminate flooring, create an immaculate first impression, continuing throughout much of the home for added allure. At the end of the hall, the living/dining room is brimming with modern appeal, enhanced by the neutral interior design. It is framed by an exquisite feature fireplace and is fronted by a bay window with a built-in seat for admiring the endless views of the Firth of Forth. The generous room has ample floor space for relaxing lounge furniture and a seated dining table for entertaining and socialising. Conveniently, the kitchen is adjacent sporting a contemporary design with handle-less cabinets in white gloss and chunky stone-effect worktops. Aqua-hued splashback panels bring an inviting dash of colour to the space, whilst under-cabinet lighting provides additional illumination for the work surfaces. It comes with a washing machine, space for a freestanding fridge-freezer, and a selection of integrated appliances (ceramic hob, electric oven, and dishwasher).
On the opposite side of the hall, the two bedrooms sit side-by-side. Bedroom one is a spacious double with plush carpeting for comfort, whereas bedroom two is a versatile single that opens out onto a sheltered balcony with a sunny, south-facing aspect and garden views. Finally, a contemporary bathroom, enveloped in stone-effect tiling, comes with a high-spec three-piece suite, including a large vanity mirror and an overhead shower. Efficient Wi-Fi controlled electric heating and double glazing ensure maximum comfort.
To the rear of the building, residents have access to private allocated parking. The beautiful Starbank Park, with its manicured lawns and waterfront views, is also just one minutes’ walk away.
Extras: Included in the sale are all the fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and a washing machine. Additional furnishings may be available
Lying approximately two miles northeast of Edinburgh, and nestled between Trinity and Leith, is the desirable district of Newhaven. Situated on the Firth of Forth, this historic district was once a thriving fishing village and harbour, and is now earmarked as one of the city’s conservation areas. Newhaven has developed greatly in recent years and offers residents an excellent range of local amenities, including a 24-hour ASDA superstore and Ocean Terminal, which is home to high-street stores and restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, and a 24-hour gym. Neighbouring Leith also offers a range of shops, bars and restaurants, including two Michelin-star establishments. For sports and fitness enthusiasts, Newhaven certainly delivers, with extensive facilities at the David Lloyd Gym and Club and a fantastic indoor climbing centre at Alien Rock. For a more relaxing option, Newhaven’s waterfront forms part of the Edinburgh promenade, which extends along Granton towards Cramond Beach. Excellent public transport links will be further enhanced with the extension of the tramline, which will terminate in Newhaven and provide direct links to the airport via the city centre from early 2023. For those wishing to travel further afield, the district’s northerly position enables easy access to the Queensferry Crossing and Edinburgh City Bypass, as well as Edinburgh International Airport and the motorway network. The area is in the catchment for well-regarded state schools at primary and secondary level, and is well-placed for Edinburgh’s leading independent schools.
