4 Leven's Close forms part of an exclusive courtyard development in a prime location within the Marchmont, Meadows and Bruntsfield conservation area. With local amenities and leafy green city spaces on the doorstep, this unique property represents a rarely available home in a tranquil, yet highly convenient setting.
Set within a small terraced enclave accessed via a traditional Edinburgh close from Leven Street, the home’s front door opens into a welcoming hall with a handy WC. Ahead a glazed door leads into the heart of the home: an impressive living/dining room. This very generous reception area offers separate zones, with ample room for comfortable seating and dining furniture. Here, the elegant interior is enhanced by decorative cornicing, whilst large windows frame a leafy garden outlook. Another glazed door gives access to the rear garden, creating an indoor/outdoor space for summer evenings. Next door, the farmhouse-inspired kitchen features white cabinets and granite-effect worktops. The design incorporates a range of freestanding appliances and a useful breakfast bar for quick meals. A bespoke timber staircase leads to the first-floor landing, which offers deep storage. Extending from here, there are two airy double bedrooms, with generous dimensions and built-in mirrored wardrobes, and a versatile smaller bedroom offering alternative use as a nursery, study, or home office. There is also additional storage in the attic and this could potentially be converted to extra living space, subject to the appropriate permissions being obtained. A bright four-piece bathroom in white completes the home.
Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round warmth. Externally, there is an ornamental garden to the front, bike shed and an enclosed private garden to the rear with leafy shrubs and paving. Controlled parking with a residents’ permit is available in the surrounding area (Zone 4).
Tollcross borders the beautiful open space of the Meadows and enjoys access to a diverse range of amenities locally and across the city via excellent 24-hour bus links. This cosmopolitan area hosts a selection of independent shops and boutiques, supermarkets, cafés, bars, and eateries and a theatre. Just a short stroll away is Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, whilst further local cultural and recreational venues are located along Lothian Road and within Fountainbridge, home to Fountain Park’s entertainment hub and the basin of the scenic Union Canal. Well-regarded state schooling options include Bruntsfield Primary School and Boroughmuir High, whilst many of the capital’s prestigious independent schools are also easily accessible. Higher education institutions situated close-by include Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University’s main campus. In addition to fantastic bus links, Tollcross is well-placed for straight forward access to the City Bypass and, also, lies within easy reach of Haymarket train station providing services across Scotland and the UK.
