Situated on the fifth floor of an exclusive waterfront development in Newhaven, this luxurious apartment boasts beautifully-presented accommodation including two bedrooms, open-plan living space, two bathrooms, and two private balconies, plus access to landscaped shared gardens and underground parking.
The epitome of contemporary living, this beautifully-presented, two-bedroom, two-bathroom fifth-floor apartment forms part of an exclusive waterfront development in Newhaven, just a stone's throw from a wealth of amenities.
A secure shared stairwell (with a video entry system) or lift lead to the fifth floor, where you are welcomed into the apartment by a generous hall with built-in storage and a utility cupboard. Here, pared-back decor and an engineered wood floor give the first glimpse of the accommodation to follow. Immediately on your left, you step into the very heart of the home: the semi open-plan living/dining room and kitchen. The generous living area is fronted by almost a full wall of southwest-facing floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing an abundance of sunny natural light to stream in, with a door affording access onto a balcony, extending the space outdoors, offering room for alfresco seating, and peacefully overlooking the shared grounds. The reception room offers ample space for lounge and dining furniture and is conveniently openly-adjoined to the kitchen. Here, custom-built cabinets are accompanied by plentiful workspace and a central breakfast bar, and integrated with a high-tech Neff Slide & Hide oven (The Great British Bake Off oven), a gas hob, a statement extractor hood, a combi microwave, and a Bosch dishwasher, whilst a fridge/freezer is included. The utility cupboard in the hall offers a discreet laundry area.
At the opposite end of the hall, two double bedrooms await. Both tranquil sleeping areas are elegantly-decorated, fitted with carpets for maximum comfort, and include large built-in wardrobes. The luxurious master boasts its own private balcony with lovely views of the water, as well as a pristine, four-piece en-suite bathroom. Finally, a separate bathroom completes the accommodation on offer. Identically-styled to the en-suite, the bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a wall-mounted basin, a toilet, and a large illuminated mirror. The apartment is heated by a recently-upgraded underfloor heating system with digital controls in every room, all windows are double glazed, and the master bedroom and en-suite feature a Sonos sound system. The development is also equipped with fibre optic cabling for superfast broadband.
Externally, the development is set in beautifully-landscaped garden grounds and offers an allocated parking space within a secure underground car park. The development also boasts a full-time concierge and cleaners.
The picturesque former fishing village of Newhaven offers a winning combination of a rich historic heritage, magnificent sea views and excellent local amenities, all just three miles north of the city centre. The area has retained its tranquil harbour and lighthouse, and its former Victorian fish market still houses a fishmonger alongside a choice of excellent restaurants, while the Michelin-starred restaurants of fashionable Leith are also close by.
Newhaven also boasts a number of pubs and cafes, alongside an excellent range of local shopping, including a 24-hour ASDA and Leith's Ocean Terminal, which features high street stores, a 24-hour gym, a 12-screen cinema and a wide range of dining options. Fitness fans can opt for a relaxing cycle ride or walk along the nearby Water of Leith Walkway or the waterfront, while additional gym facilities, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and tennis, squash and badminton courts are available at David Lloyd's Newhaven Harbour Club.
The area benefits from high quality schooling from nursery to secondary level, including Victoria Primary School and Trinity Academy. Newhaven has excellent commuter links, offering easy access to Edinburgh City Bypass, the Forth Road Bridge, Edinburgh Airport and the motorway network. It is also well-served by public transport, with regular buses to the city centre running day and night.
