The upgraded property boasts modern interiors, a spacious private attic with access and light, and full insulation for warmth and efficiency. Set behind twin gated archways, the building creates an instantly impressive reception with a secure communal entrance leading to a shared stairwell and external landings, commanding unobstructed view of the castle. 614 Websters Land's front door leads from this sunny and fully paved outdoor urban garden area with seating into a crisp hallway with snug fitted carpets and built-in storage.

A spacious double bedroom with a built-in mirrored wardrobe sits adjacent to the living area. The sash windows in both front-facing rooms benefit from secondary glazing for extra warmth and cutting out street level noise. Completing this delightful city home is an immaculate three-piece bathroom with electric underfloor heating and an overhead shower. Recently installed economy 7 storage heating to provide low cost heating, and cavity wall and loft insulation provide fantastic energy efficiency, warmth, and comfort throughout the year. The large, paved landing outside the front door creates a wonderful terrace for seating and growing container plants with spectacular castle views. The property also has access to a leafy green communal garden on the ground floor and a secure communal bike store. Controlled parking with a residents' permit is available (Zone 4). There is also the possibility of renting parking space in underground secure car park at the bottom of the complex (by separate negotiation). Area: Offering some of the finest amenities that Edinburgh has to offer, the Grassmarket is situated in the heart of the capital's Old Town, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overlooked by the impressive Edinburgh Castle, the Grassmarket has in recent years become a highly sought-after area, home to a vibrant and eclectic array of eateries, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants, independent retailers, an art gallery and a selection of hotels. Every Saturday, the Grassmarket is transformed into a hive of activity thanks to the Grassmarket Market, offering delightful home-grown produce and handcrafted gifts from local craft makers. During the warmer months, the Grassmarket is the perfect place for open-air dining and socialising, giving the area a wonderful continental atmosphere. Edinburgh's world-class shopping facilities are all enviably close with Princes Street, George Street and Multrees Walk all within walking distance. Some of the capital's most loved cultural and entertainment venues are also within easy reach, and outdoor lovers are spoiled for choice thanks to the proximity of Princes Street Gardens, the Meadows and the picturesque Holyrood Park. All of Edinburgh's highly regarded universities and colleges are easily accessible from the Grassmarket, and the area is well-served by day and night bus links, whilst Waverley and Haymarket train stations and the tram line are also close by. Viewings available by appointment.
