Situated on the first floor of a handsome Georgian building just a stone’s throw from Leith Links, this spacious two-bedroom (plus box room) flat, with lovely open views, boasts magnificent eclectic interiors complemented by delightful period features and stylish fittings throughout.
Entered via a secure entry phone system, the communal stair leads to the first floor. Once inside, you are welcomed by soaring ceilings and stripped Douglas-fir floorboards framed by crisp white walls – features flowing throughout most of this city home. Situated at the front of the property is a most impressive reception room with twin recessed windows, ornate cornicing, a working open fireplace, and Edinburgh Press recess.
This open plan living and dining room is the ideal space to relax, dine and entertain in. On the other side of the flat is a modern breakfasting kitchen, offering peaceful views over gardens and an old graveyard from its window seat. Fitted with a range of grey wall and base units, the kitchen comes integrated with a double oven, gas hob, extractor hood and dishwasher, with space for an under-counter washing machine, a breakfast bar, and a walk-in cupboard. The first bedroom is a very generous double, with ample space for a range of bedroom furniture. A large box room, which could be used as a home office, offers outstanding storage and is accessed from this bedroom.
A second small double bedroom comes with a built-in platform, which could be reinstated to raise the sleeping area and create even more floor space. Finally, the brightly lit bathroom offers a contemporary three-piece-suite with a shower-over-bath and vanity storage. A large cupboard, accessed from the hallway, completes the accommodation on offer. Gas central heating powered by a combi boiler and double glazing ensure a warm yet cost-effective living environment all year round.
Free on-street parking is available on Pirniefield Place and the vast green park of Leith Links is just a few steps away from the flat.
Extras: Included in the sale are all the fitted floor coverings, light fittings, blinds and curtains, and integrated appliances. All furniture could be included as part of the sale with further negotiations.
Enjoying a surge in popularity and voted by The Times as one of the best places to live in 2019, the vibrant area of Leith is a lively hub of eating, socialising and shopping spots, situated within walking distance of the city centre. The area offers an excellent choice of amenities with various food stores, independent retail outlets, supermarkets, a Post Office, and banks, all on your doorstep. Nearby Ocean Terminal shopping centre is home to more than 50 high-street shops, a multi-screen cinema and a gym. The neighbouring Shore area promises Edinburgh’s premier dining experience, with two Michelin-starred restaurants and a host of artisan cafes, coffee shops, pubs, and bars. Leith boasts great outdoor pursuits, particularly at Leith Links (just a few steps from the property) and Claremont Park, which accommodate tennis courts, football pitches and a cricket oval. For those who prefer to exercise indoors, Leith Victoria Swim Centre is just one of several local gyms and offers a swimming pool, steam and sauna facilities, a state-of-the-art gym, and a choice of fitness classes. Residents of Leith are a mere thirty-minute stroll from Princes Street, and enjoy comprehensive public transport services, which are set to be boosted by the new tramline extension (scheduled to open in 2023). Leith also allows swift access to the A1 and Edinburgh Bypass. Schooling is well catered for from primary to tertiary level, with Leith Primary, Leith Academy and the Leith School of Art, all close by.
