Inside the city flat, reached by a secure communal entrance and traditional stairway, you are first greeted by an entrance hall with two built-in storage cupboards and space for coats and shoes. It provides a warm welcome and instantly sets the standards of accommodation, with crisp white décor and high-quality wood-toned flooring – desirable features found throughout the main accommodation, which allows the new buyers to easily add their own style.
Flowing to the left, the hall leads naturally into the south-facing living/dining room, which is bathed in warm afternoon sun from twin sash windows. It has well-proportioned dimensions and can accommodate comfortable lounge furniture and a dining table for sociable meals together and entertaining. It also features a jazzy stone accent to one of the walls, bringing a nice dash of colour and additional texture to the modern living environment.
Next door, the kitchen has an L-shaped design to create a greater sense of space, coming fitted with contemporary base and wall cabinets and complementary worktops. The suave design is finished with on-trend metro-style splashbacks and a seamless range of integrated appliances (ceramic hob, oven, washing machine, fridge, and freezer).
Located side by side, the two double bedrooms continue the attractive neutral décor and wood-textured flooring which enhances a tranquil and airy ambience. Both rooms are of a good size too, accommodating bedside furnishings and a study/vanity table. Finishing this city home is a stunning bathroom, with a high-spec three-piece suite fully enveloped in striking contemporary tiles. It consists of a storage-set washbasin, a back-to-the-wall toilet, a chrome towel radiator, a vanity mirror with storage, and a bathtub with an overhead shower and glazed screen.
Gas central heating and double-glazed sash windows ensure comfort and efficiency all year round.
Externally, residents have access to a lawned communal garden for summer socialising. In addition, The Meadows and Arthur’s Seat – two of Edinburgh’s best-loved green spaces – are both practically on your doorstep. Conveniently, there is also controlled parking available with a residents’ permit (Zone 3).
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.
