Flat for Sale in Edinburgh
2 Bedrooms | Offers Over £95,000
3 Bath Street, Edinburgh EH15 1EY
Boasting a prime position at the heart of sought-after Portobello and within a historic conservation area, this basement storage space represents a rare development opportunity, with planning permission having already been obtained to create a contemporary two-bedroom basement flat.
An attractive investment for a developer or buy-to-let landlord, or an exciting project for first-time buyers and city professionals, the property is positioned on the basement level of a prominent residential building at the top of Bath Street, just off Portobello's bustling High Street.
The traditional holiday resort remains popular with visitors, but is particularly sought-after among young families and professionals who are keen to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital, whilst remaining within easy commuting distance of Edinburgh. Portobello promises an enviable coastal lifestyle, yet is just minutes' drive or cycle from Edinburgh city centre via trendy Leith and The Shore. The scenic East Lothian countryside is also just a few miles down the coast, and offers Portobello residents a whole host of outdoor pursuits, from golfing and walking, to surfing and horse-riding, practically on their doorstep.
The approved plans allow for a well-proportioned two-bedroom home with an open-plan dining kitchen, a separate living room, a bathroom, a cloakroom and a generous hallway with ample storage. The approved plans also include the excavation of the pavement on Bath Street to create light wells. Unrestricted parking is available on Bath Street and in the vicinity.
Extras: The property is to be sold as seen.
Portobello, Edinburgh's seaside town, is a fashionable suburb situated at the very eastern fringes of Edinburgh. Known for its long stretch of white sandy beaches and Victorian promenade, the area is also home to delightful greenspaces, including idyllic Figgate Park, which boasts its own loch. Portobello is renowned for its traditional shopping street, which is lined with a blend of independent shops and branded retailers, cafes, pubs and restaurants, boutiques, galleries and antique shops. These are supplemented with several supermarkets, both here and in neighbouring Musselburgh. Fort Kinnaird Retail Park is also nearby, and is home to more than 50 high-street stores and major outlets, family restaurants and a multi- screen cinema. There is also no shortage of leisure facilities within Portobello and neighbouring Joppa, including Victorian baths and a library. The property falls within the catchment area for excellent state schools from nursery to senior level, including state-of-the-art Portobello High School. The area enjoys excellent public transport links, including a network of buses travelling into Edinburgh city centre and across East Lothian, as well as regular rail services from nearby Brunstane to Waverley station in just ten minutes. Close proximity to the A1 and Edinburgh City Bypass also makes Portobello an attractive option for commuters.
