Inside, a vestibule welcomes you into the home, where a charming stained-glass window and glazed door lead into a reception hall that has lots of period details, builtin storage, and a traditional staircase. On the right is the living room, which is also beautifully adorned with lavish period features, including highly intricate cornice work and ceiling rose that emphasise the lofty dimensions, a sweeping bay window with views over the local park, and a handsome feature fireplace creating a focal point for arranging furniture. In addition, it has a recessed display cabinet and shelving, and is lovingly decorated in sumptuous neutral hues and with varnished wooden floorboards (found throughout much of the home).
Sat adjacent is a sociable dining room, with a south-facing aspect and traditional press cupboard. Conveniently next door is the light-filled kitchen, which has a stylish aesthetic, fitted with contemporary cabinets and chic wood-toned worktops that match the splashback panels. It provides garden access, and includes a freestanding dishwasher and seamlessly integrated appliances (five-burner gas hob, raised oven and microwave oven, and double fridge). Plumbing for a washing machine is discreetly housed in the utility room on the top floor. Extending from the kitchen is a bright three-piece shower room.
An easily accessible bedroom, currently arranged as a study, finishes this floor.
Upstairs leads to another front-facing reception room that echoes the impressive proportions and styling of the living area, as well as its delightful aspect and wealth of period features. This room is organised as a second lounge, although it could be utilised as a sixth bedroom if desired.
To the rear are two double bedrooms, whilst completing this floor is a large three-piece bathroom, with a traditional-style freestanding bathtub and appealing decoration. On the second floor, a naturally-lit landing extends to the two remaining double bedrooms (including the principal room), a handy utility/box room, and a modern shower room. All five of the home’s bedrooms are bright, spacious, and airy.
Gas central heating and double glazing ensure comfort and efficiency. The property is protected by a burglar alarm, and has additional cellar storage space.
Externally, there are low-maintenance gardens to the front and south-facing rear. The latter is fully enclosed and beautifully coloured with established leafy greens, making it a tranquil space for relaxing and dining in the sun. Parking in the area is on street and 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 awardwinning
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. In addition, a tram link is currently under construction along Constitution Street, which will provide the area with a direct commute through the city centre to Edinburgh International Airport once complete.
