Lothian House, 124/43 Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH3 9DD
Enjoying a highly lucrative position in the heart of Edinburgh's financial district, this well-presented one-bedroom third-floor apartment on Lothian Road comes well- presented throughout, offering generous accommodation and sociable open-plan living with awe-inspiring views. The property forms part of the imposing Lothian House, a monumental, five-storey, B-listed art deco development (1935) designed by Stewart Kaye. Residents of Lothian House have full-access to a private members leisure suite, with a fully-refurbished swimming pool, gym, and sauna.
The flat is accessed via a grand entrance, brimming with art deco charm, which continues into a majestic communal foyer. From here, a stairway or handy lift leads to the home's front door which opens into a white hall with a storage cupboard and hardwood flooring. It is a charming welcome, which flows (with the styling) into a very generous open-plan kitchen, living, and dining room. A massive steel-framed window dominates this reception room with breath-taking views to Edinburgh Castle. It floods the versatile floor space with natural light for an airy ambience that is further heightened by the impeccably high ceiling and crisp white décor. Wire hung lighting brings additional illumination, with a gas fire for warmth and cosiness. Well-defined from the living space, the kitchen area has a classic design and comes well-appointed with dark timber-effect cabinets and generous workspace. It incorporates a neat breakfast bar for one and a selection of integrated appliances: an electric hob with an extractor hood and an electric oven. An undercounter fridge is also included, plus there is a communal laundry room in Lothian House.
Next door, neutral décor continues into the generous double bedroom, which offers snug carpeting for comfort and a large built-in wardrobe with additional storage set above. Bright and airy with plenty of room for bedside furnishings, this room also features a huge steel-framed window with a stunning elevated view over Edinburgh's picturesque skyline. Finally, a three-piece bathroom enjoys neutral tiling with a decorative blue border, glass shelving fixtures, and an overhead shower with a glazed screen. Double glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.
Residents, including family and friends, have full-access to a fully-refurbished, private members leisure suite within Lothian House that boasts a swimming pool, gym, sauna, and games room. Controlled parking is available in the area with a residents' permit (Zone 4). EPC Rating - C.
Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, a fridge, and a living room sofa and mirror to be included in the sale. Additional furnishings are available upon request.

Less than half a mile west of Princes Street, and within easy walking distance of the desirable West End and the New Town, as well as the bustling business and finance quarter of Tollcross and Lothian Road, Fountainbridge has undergone significant regeneration and redevelopment since 2011 to become one of the most fashionable residential districts in the capital. Fountainbridge has a proud industrial heritage ranging from rubber manufacturing to brewing, much of which has been sympathetically retained in its traditional tenements and luxury loft-style apartment complexes. Residents of Fountainbridge are spoilt for choice when it comes to leisure and nightlife, with fantastic bars, restaurants, clubs and theatres right on their doorstep. These are supplemented with a multi-screen cinema, a bowling alley and a gym at Fountain Park. Fountainbridge is within the catchment area for Tollcross Primary School and James Gillespie's High School and is well-placed for a choice of independent childcare and schooling options. The area is also popular with students owing to its proximity to the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University & Edinburgh Napier University.
