Property of the Week – An elegant three bed townhouse for sale in Longstone

Every week Watermans Legal brings to you our choice for Property of the Week.

This time we’ve chosen this elegant mid terrace townhouse, set at the desirable ‘The Green’ development at Longstone, a property which provides breath-taking views and a fantastic location.

Situated in southwest Edinburgh, just five minutes’ drive from Edinburgh City Bypass, the established residential area of Longstone is an attractive option for families, young professionals and students owing to its convenient links to the city centre and to tertiary education facilities including Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Napier University (Sighthill Campus) and Edinburgh College (Sighthill Campus).

Local amenities include a Scotmid store, a pub, and a choice of fast-food takeaways. More extensive retail and leisure facilities are also available in nearby Slateford and Chesser. These include a Sainsbury’s supermarket, an ALDI store and a 24-hour ASDA superstore, plus a gym, indoor 3G football pitches and bowling facilities.

For exercising outdoors, Meggetland Sports Complex boasts a range of grass and all-weather pitches to suit a variety of sports.

Residents of Longstone are never more than a few minutes’ walk from the Water of Leith, which promises a tranquil stroll or cycle into the city centre, all the way to Leith and The Shore.

This, coupled with the city-wide bus network and frequent rail links from Slateford or Kingsknowe stations, ensures all corners of the capital are easily accessible. The property is just short walk from the local catchment school, Longstone Primary School, which is a feeder school for Firrhill High School.

Proportioned accommodation adopts distinctive and modern architecture and is perfect for a range of buyers, including first time buyers via the First Home Fund scheme. 

Comprising three bedrooms and an open plan living style, our homes at The Green are close enough to the city of Edinburgh, without taking away the appeal of country life.

The Green is ideal for residents who want to thrive in the country life while maintaining their connections to the city of Edinburgh.

Boasting tasteful décor, an elegant reception room, a ground floor garage and en suite bathroom, it’s not difficult to see the appeal in this beautiful property.

Residents here are just 15 minutes from central Edinburgh by bus or tram, and just over a mile from the City Bypass.

And, while the urban appeal remains, residents will have their heads turned by vast, local rural delights; The Water of Leith Walkway, Union Canal and miles of footpaths and cycleways are all close by.

This newly built home is likely to be released by October 2020 and can be reserved now by calling Watermans Legal on 0131 467 5566 or 07884 247419.
