23 East Restalrig Terrace, Edinburgh, EH6 6ED
A dual aspect, first floor flat, with two bedrooms, a spacious living room, a dining room (or third bedroom) and private garden at the rear. The property has great potential, with updates required in certain areas. Though the property currently sports rather outdated décor, bringing it up to date should be a straightforward task, and would result in a smart property with excellent access to both the city centre and all the gentrified shops, bars and restaurants Leith has to offer.
Property Details & Description
Entering the property through its door at the side, it offers a small area for coats etc. before the door to the hallway. Entering the hall, the dining room to the right has ample space for a large table, has a large built-in cupboard, and offers an attractive view of East Restalrig Terrace. Further on the living room also a great size, again with an integrated cupboard and two large windows, again overlooking the quiet, pretty street.
The master bedroom currently contains large integrated storage units, with these removed the room would have more space on offer, easily accommodating a double bed and freestanding storage cupboards.
The second bedroom is also a good size, and like the main bedroom boasts a generous window overlooking the garden of the property. The bathroom next door is also generous, being more contemporary than other parts of the property, it could be left as-is.
The kitchen, located at the far end of the hallway, has a large worktop, and contains a modern washing machine and a tumble drier, plus a large fridge/freezer, all to be included with the property. Furthermore, the current furnishings in the flat are available under separate negotiation.
The property’s garden is a bright, open lawn, with a surrounding walkway and a pretty view of the neighbouring street. It also has a shed, perfect for storing equipment, and a patio, ideal for garden furniture.
Leith is a thriving seaside community approximately 2 miles from the city centre, with a great selection of restaurants and coffee shops as well as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and the many useful retail outlets on Leith Walk. The Shore offers a wealth of highly rated bars and restaurants in a quaint, waterfront setting.
There are many open green spaces within easy reach, including the 46-acre Leith Links, only a minute’s walk away, as well as Edinburgh’s extensive cycle network and the Water of Leith walkway. Ocean Terminal, Leith's stylish shopping centre designed by Sir Terence Conran, is nearby with a variety of stores, restaurants, a multi-screen cinema complex and the Royal Yacht Britannia moored alongside.
The Leith Links area boasts superb access to Edinburgh’s bus and tram networks, the City Bypass leading to Edinburgh International Airport and the Queensferry Crossing to Fife as well as the A1 south. The new tramline on Leith Walk (still under construction) will provide fast track links to the city centre and the airport. The area has excellent state and private school provision including Fettes College, ESMS and St George’s School for Girls.
