Sold Stc. Situated in popular Gorgie, this outstanding second-floor flat offers a unique opportunity to own a quarter share of a desirable, modern urban residence. Part of a contemporary development, it boasts two bedrooms, open-plan living, and appealing interior design, in addition to a private balcony with river views and convenient residents’ parking. The remaining 75% of the property is owned by Dunedin Canmore, for which a monthly rental of approximately £346 is payable. This superb flat is accessed via a secure communal entrance and by a stairway or handy elevator. The front door opens into a sizeable reception hall, with two large storage cupboards. Here, soft toned, neutral décor, with white accents and pale, wood-finished doors, sets the scene for the attractive interiors to follow. A timber-style floor leads you into the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room, which is a bright and airy space with a neutral palette and a sophisticated design for modern lifestyles. It has ample room for a configuration of comfortable seating, and is fronted by oversized windows, enhancing the tranquil ambience. Patio doors open onto a large covered balcony, providing a wonderful area for outdoor entertaining and for enjoying the magical Water of Leith with a sunset. The modern kitchen is set along one wall of the room and continues the natural theme, with a sweep of timber-inspired cabinets and contrasting granite-style worktops. Ample cooking and storage space neatly includes a freestanding cooker, washing machine, and tall fridge-freezer. This well-designed apartment includes a generous double and a large single bedroom. The double bedroom also benefits from a fitted wardrobe and dual aspect windows, whilst the single (also with useful fitted storage) is a versatile space for alternative use as a home office. Finally, the pristine bathroom comes complete with a three-piece suite and overhead shower. The property enjoys efficient gas central heating and double glazing. Outside, this contemporary development is set within landscaped grounds, enjoying a wonderful setting alongside the Water of Leith, including nearby access to its idyllic river walkways.
