The Ropeworks development in the Leith area of Edinburgh sees new homes built on the site of the historic Edinburgh Roperie and Sailworks Company.  These highly efficient homes are fitted with a high specification throughout and every design detail has been taken into consideration to encompass spacious city living.


Central to this development is the concept of open spaces – Ropemaker Street shares a large communal garden space to the rear of the property as well as direct access to the 46 acre Leith Links, and lies a short distance from Edinburgh’s numerous green open spaces including Calton Hill, Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh’s extensive cycle network and the Water of Leith walkway.


Leith is a vibrant, thriving community with a great selection of restaurants and coffee shops at the Shore area beside the Port of Leith as well as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and the many useful retail outlets on Leith Walk. Nearby, Ocean Terminal offers an array of high street retailers, restaurants and a multi screen cinema complex.


The property is only a short distance from the city centre with its abundant shopping establishments, boutiques and bars; renowned Art Galleries, Museums and Tourist Attractions; cosmopolitan cafés and restaurants; John Lewis’ department store, and the newly opened £1bn St James Quarter retail, leisure and residential development. 


The property boasts proximity to Waverley Rail Station; the city’s efficient bus and tram network with direct access to Edinburgh International Airport; the City Bypass and Scotland’s central motorway network.


There is excellent local school provision in the area as well as proximity to many of the city’s private schools such as Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy.
