Entered via a private main door, the front door opens into an internal stairwell leading to the first floor where the accommodation is located. An elegant, carpeted entrance hallway creates a warm welcome and features a useful storage cupboard housing a large freezer. Opposite the front door is a spacious living and dining room which boasts a southerly aspect and tasteful neutral décor. An electric stove sits within a painted brick hearth and creates a cosy focal point for the room.
Next door to the living room is a breakfasting kitchen which enjoys views over the rear garden. Crisp white wall-mounted and base units provide plenty of storage for kitchenware while two spot lit cabinets create the perfect place to display glassware and crockery. The new owners will further benefit from a breakfast bar and an integrated gas oven and hob as well as an undercounter fridge, a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
Across the hallway are three well-proportioned double bedrooms, two of which are supplemented by built-in cupboards. The hall also affords access to a floored attic space. Completing the accommodation is a three-piece family bathroom comprising a shower-over-bath with a glazed screen, a WC and a pedestal basin.
Gas central heating and double glazing ensure the property is warm and efficient. Externally the property is accompanied by a spacious private garden to the rear which features a large shed and is largely laid to lawn with a gravelled and paved area for barbecuing and outdoor dining. To the front, a driveway provides off-street parking.
Situated approximately two miles northeast of the city centre, the area of Leith Links forms part of Edinburgh’s increasingly popular Leith district, which recently featured on The Times’ list of ‘Coolest places to live in Britain’. The Port of Leith, with its proud identity and sense of community, boasts a fascinating heritage, with many of the old bonded-warehouses and grand merchant buildings having been given a new lease of life as part of a comprehensive regeneration project.
Residents enjoy the open green spaces of Leith Links and Claremont Park right on their doorstep. These are home to children’s play areas, football pitches, tennis courts, a cricket pavilion, and a community croft. Meanwhile, the services and amenities around Great Junction Street and Leith Walk are minutes’ walk away, and just around the corner is The Shore: a cosmopolitan hotspot of artisan cafés, trendy bars, traditional pubs, and award winning restaurants. More extensive shopping is available at Ocean Terminal shopping centre, which accommodates a cinema complex, a 24-hour gym and over fifty high-street stores.
Primary and secondary schooling is provided locally and the area benefits from fantastic public transport links travelling across the city and beyond, as well as swift and easy access to the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass.
