Positioned on cobbled Lorne Street, which runs between vibrant Easter Road and Leith Walk, this third-floor two-bedroom tenement flat offers a traditional home at the heart of Leith. Perfect for first-time buyers and investors, the property has fantastic amenities practically on its doorstep, and is a short walk into the city centre. The flat yields elevated views across the city and has retained a charming selection of original features, including panelled doors and intricate cornices.
A secure entry-phone system allows access to the shared stairwell, whose traditional cantilevered staircase curves up to the bright top-floor landing. Welcoming you into the flat is a carpeted hall, which incorporates a useful walk-in cupboard. The south-facing living/dining room overlooks the shared garden to the rear and boasts another walk-in store and a press cupboard. The dining space is currently housed within a cosy alcove, leaving plenty of space for comfortable seating. The galley kitchen is positioned just off the living/dining room, and enjoys the same south-facing aspect. This space is well-appointed with modern white cabinets and timber worktops, as well as appliances. The bathroom is positioned adjacent to the kitchen and features a shower-over-bath, a wall-mounted washbasin with ornate brackets and a WC. Both double bedrooms are positioned to the front of the flat and offers outstanding floorspace for any number of furniture configurations. The principal double bedroom is particularly impressive, with gold-painted cornices and an exquisite ceiling rose. The generous box room borrows natural light from the south-facing living/dining room and would lend itself to a variety of uses. The property benefits from double-glazed windows and gas central heating, ensuring year-round home comfort and efficiency. Externally the flat enjoys shared use of the south-facing garden/drying green to the rear. Unrestricted on-street parking is available.
