Flat | 2 Bedrooms
Enjoying one of the capital's most popular and vibrant city locations, this modern two-bedroom flat lies just minutes' walk from the beautiful Meadows and Newington's outstanding shopping, entertainment and cultural amenities. Set on the first floor of an attractive development, offering residents' private parking, and supplemented by a sunny flower balcony, the flat promises a spacious, appealing home - ideal for city professionals or as a rental investment.
Reached via a well-kept communal stairwell with secure entry, the property opens into a hall incorporating two useful store cupboards. Here, warmly-toned décor, comfortable fitted carpeting and elegant decorative details create a delightful introduction to the home. At the end of the hall lies a generous reception area promising flexible space for lounge and dining furniture. This welcoming area is characterfully accentuated by delicately-detailed ceiling coving and a rose, whilst French doors open onto a pleasant balcony with a leafy outlook and room for plants. Adjoining the reception area is a kitchen fitted with an array of tasteful beech-effect cabinets, as well as a fold-down breakfasting table. Further equipping the space is an integrated oven, a gas hob (with a stylish chimney-style hood), a freestanding tall fridge freezer and an undercounter washing machine. The flat also includes two double bedrooms enjoying excellent floor space and incorporated wardrobe storage. Finally, a roomy bathroom comes replete with a WC-suite, a wall- mounted mirrored vanity cupboard and a bathtub with an over-head shower and a contemporary glazed screen. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and double glazing throughout.

Located on the south side of the capital and approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, to suit every stage of life, and is equally popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan cafes and coffee shops, pubs, bars and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This changes again during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The rest of the year, however, Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen's Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex. Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. Newington is within the catchment area for Preston Street Primary School and well-regarded James Gillespie's High School, and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
