With its blend of period villas and modern developments, leafy green spaces and close proximity to the city centre, Inverleith has long been a popular choice for professionals and families alike. Situated north of Edinburgh's prestigious New Town and just 1.5 miles from the heart of the capital, Inverleith enjoys access to fantastic local services and amenities in neighbouring Trinity and Stockbridge, and is just minutes' drive from several major supermarkets and Craigleith Retail Park.
The area encompasses beautiful Inverleith Park, which is home to various community sports pitches and allotments, as well as The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, where you can explore 72 acres of exquisite gardens, and take in some of the best views of Edinburgh's iconic skyline. Inverleith is served by excellent state schools, including nursery and primary schooling at Broughton Primary School, followed by secondary education at Drummond Community High School, and is also well placed for a choice of independent schools. Thanks to its northerly location, Inverleith offers swift and easy access to Edinburgh Airport, the Forth Road Bridge and the M8/ M9 motorway network, and also benefits from excellent public transport services, providing fast, convenient travel across the capital.
Nestled within a tranquil cul-de-sac just off Inverleith Row and just a stone's throw from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, this one-bedroom end-terrace house represents a rare opportunity to acquire a charming home in desirable Inverleith. Now in need of some modernisation, the deceptively spacious property boasts a wonderful southerly and westerly aspect, as well as a secluded private garden and residents' permit parking.
The glazed vestibule (perfect for coats and shoes) leads directly into the main living area. Bathed in light from dual-aspect windows to the south and west, the living/dining room represents a blank canvas with scope for various configurations. Concealed behind a concertina-style door, the bijou kitchen is currently equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace, with room for freestanding appliances. Below the stairs and hidden behind a matching concertina-style door is a versatile walk-in store, which benefits from fitted shelving, lighting and power sockets. Upstairs, the spacious double bedroom enjoys a lovely outlook over the private garden, and incorporates a substantial built-in wardrobe with sliding doors. The sunny three-piece bathroom adjacent features a shower-over-bath and a useful boiler/airing cupboard. Gas central heating powered by recently upgraded combi boiler, as well as double glazing throughout ensure optimum comfort and efficiency all year round. The extensive, established garden to the side is fully enclosed and is afforded outstanding privacy and seclusion by its selection of mature shrubs and trees. Accessed via a secure gate, the garden also comprises a well-tended lawn/drying green and a handy garden shed. The house benefits from ample residents' permit parking (Zone N2) adjacent.
