The apartment is reached via a secure shared entrance and a lift service. The front door opens to a wonderful first impression: a broad hall, finished in subtle olive tones and with a rich hardwood floor. It offers built-in storage and a glimpse of the home’s impeccable standards.
The open-plan kitchen, living and dining room has an expansive footprint to accommodate an excellent choice of comfortable lounge furnishings and a table and chairs for evening meals. Thanks to multi-aspect windows, it is also bathed in natural light throughout the entire day, ensuring a bright and airy ambience. An oak hardwood floor and sumptuous interior design complete the aesthetic, utilising an understated backdrop and a bold accent wall to great effect. Finally, French doors extend the space outwards onto a private balcony, which has impressive views over the Firth of Forth and a southwest-facing aspect – perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the afternoon sun.
Arranged along two walls in an L-shape, the kitchen is neatly zoned and organised to emphasise the reception area’s generous sense of space. It has a well-appointed range of timber-hued cabinets and sweeping worksurfaces, backed by crisp white splashbacks. The sophisticated look is completed by undercabinet lighting and seamlessly integrated appliances (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine), as well as a fitted cooker that is perfect for budding chefs, enjoying a five-burner gas hob and double oven with two side storage drawers.
Set side by side, the two bedrooms both enjoy a beneficial southwest-facing aspect. They continue the high standards found throughout, and are finished with modern interior design and plush carpeting for optimal comfort. Both rooms also feature spacious proportions for bedside furniture and built-in wardrobes for added convenience. The principal bedroom has the added luxury of an en-suite bathroom, too.
The home has a high-end family shower room and en-suite bathroom, both of which are fitted with a three-piece suite. The shower room features a hidden-cistern toilet, a storage-set washbasin, and a double walk-in shower enclosure – all enveloped in premium tiles. The en-suite bathroom is of a similar quality, enjoying sky-blue décor and white tiling around the wet areas.
Externally, residents have shared use of a beautiful communal garden that has a large landscaped lawn, framed by mature planting. In addition, the apartment also benefits from an allocated parking space in a secure, gated and sheltered residents’ garage. There are also secure bike storage facilities available and the development has an on-site maintenance team.
The Shore, Edinburgh –
Approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital’s maritime industry. Like much of Edinburgh’s northern seaboard, The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of the most desirable postcodes in the capital, recently voted as one of the best places to live by The Times in 2019. Characterised by its narrow, cobbled streets and continental-style waterfront, the area exudes a charming, small-town ambience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Shore is renowned for its buzzing arts and social scene, which is fuelled by a fabulous selection of galleries and boutiques, trendy bars and award-winning eateries, including no fewer than three Michelin-starred restaurants.
For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food. The Shore is served by an excellent range of local services and amenities, particularly in the bustling shopping area around the Foot of the Walk and Great Junction Street. Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities including a variety of high-street stores, a selection of family restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, and a 24-hour gym. The Shore is within the catchment area for well-regarded primary and secondary schools and enjoys fantastic public transport links into the city centre. It also provides swift and easy to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport, and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
