This traditional terraced house in Leith Links offers two bedrooms, a spacious reception room, and neutral, minimalist interiors, plus private front and rear gardens and access to unrestricted on-street parking.
Reached via a gated pathway through the garden, the home’s front door opens into a hall immediately affording access to a reception room on the left. Occupying a generous footprint which allows for a selection of furniture layouts catering for both relaxation and dining, the living and dining room is front by a large, southwest-facing bay window allowing sunny light to stream in throughout the day. The room is further enhanced by understated, neutral décor, a handsome wood floor, and a feature fire recess. The breakfasting kitchen is conveniently accessed from the reception room and is well-equipped with a wide range of farmhouse-inspired, cream-coloured cabinets, framed by natural wood worktops and a tiled floor and accompanied by a double Butler sink. A cooker is neatly housed within the cabinets and paired with an eye-catching splashback and an integrated extractor hood, whilst a washing machine and a fridge/freezer are also included.
On the first floor, a landing leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom. The front-facing double bedrooms enjoys the same sunny aspect as the living room, through a large bay window, and incorporates a sizeable built-in cupboard and an open Edinburgh Press. The second bedroom, a cosy double or a generous single, enjoys a peaceful rear-facing aspect. Both sleeping areas continue the understated finish of the property with neutral décor and fitted carpets. Finally, the bright, modern bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead electric shower, a pedestal basin, a WC, and a mirrored, wall-mounted vanity cabinet. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally, the house is flanked by gardens to the front and rear. The sunny front garden is gravelled for easy upkeep, whilst the rear garden features a gravelled sitting area and a well-kept lawn with a colourfully-planted border. Parking on Pirniefield Place is conveniently unrestricted.
Leith Links, Edinburgh
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.
